Have you ever noticed how in spy movies the secret safe is always behind a picture? This idea is neat and all, but if I am ever a villain in a spy thriller, I am checking behind the pictures first.

Have you ever wondered how else you can conceal your wall safe? Other than putting a conspicuous painting or a portrait of your Grandma Esther over it, how else can you keep your safe hidden?

Here are some ideas.

Embed You Wall Safe in Your Closet

The back of your closet is a fantastic place to install your safe. It has the natural concealment of clothes over it, meaning your safe will remain out of plain sight. Think about it: when was the last time you saw a burglar pushing aside blouses and brassieres to find a secret safe?

Hide Your Safe in the Laundry Room

Thieves don’t spend time in the laundry room. Because they are in a rush to get out of your home undetected, they likely won’t take a single step into the messiest room in the house; the room of the dirty clothes and the smelly shoes. Depending on the size of your safe, you could put it behind a cupboard, in a fake breaker box, or possibly even on a shelf in your laundry room.

Install It in Your Child’s Bedroom

Burglars go to the rooms where they think valuables are stored. This is not a child’s room, which is why it is the ideal location to hide a wall safe. Plus, children’s rooms often have lots of decorations, thereby creating ample concealment opportunities.

Use Garage Clutter to Your Advantage

Your garage is full of things. In fact, there is a good chance your garage is a mess. While this can make finding your power tools a chore, the plus side is your garage is full of hiding spots for a safe. Most garages have shelving of some kind and an abundance of places where you can cover a safe. Plus, because a garage is the last place many people think of when it comes to jewelry, documents, and other safe-worthy possessions, you will have the element of surprise on your side.

Don’t leave your valuables at the mercy of intruders and burglars. Invest in a quality safe and enjoy the sense of tranquility that comes from knowing the things that matter most to you are safe and secure. Contact Affordable Lock Services today to learn more about the merits of various safes.
