When it comes to keeping your valuables secure, a safe is an essential investment.
However, one safe may not always be enough to protect all your valuable items. That's why it's a good idea to consider installing multiple safes in different locations.
As a homeowner, one of the most important decisions you'll make when purchasing a safe is choosing the right location to install it. This decision can significantly impact the safety and security of your valuables. In this post, we'll explore some of the best locations to install your safe and why you should consider having multiple safes in different locations.
The best place to install your safe is in the room where you usually keep those items. For example, suppose you have a collection of valuable watches, jewelry, or family heirlooms. In that case, you might want to install a safe in your primary bedroom closet. Similarly, you may want to install a safe to protect important documents or sensitive information if you have a home office.
By having two safes in different locations, you'll increase the security and protection of your valuable items. In a break-in or natural disaster, having items stored in multiple safes ensures more of your possessions will be safe and secure.
When choosing the location for your safe, there are a few things to keep in mind:
Firstly, you'll want to consider the size of the safe and whether it will fit comfortably in the room you've chosen. At Mycube, we have safes ranging from compact to large for all your safekeeping needs. And we also offer spec sheets that allow you to see how much space you need to accommodate each one of our Mycube safe products.
You'll also want to think about accessibility. If you need to access the safe frequently, you should install it in a location that's easily accessible. A common mistake in the old-school way of safekeeping is putting your safe down in the basement only to never use it. While having a basement safe can be a great deterrent against theft, it will only provide that benefit if you actually use it. We see all too often customers who don't feel like going to the basement to lock up their items so they leave them out in the open only to be stolen or misused. Pus because our safes are stylish, it means that you actually want to put them in the personal places where you spend your time granting you greater access to the items you need to secure and access. daily.
Another important factor to consider is the level of protection the location offers. For example, if you're installing a safe to protect against theft, you'll want to choose a location that's less visible and harder to access. Choosing places like closets with concealment doors, pull-out drawers, in-wall safes, and concrete basement safes are a good idea to ensure protection.
If you're installing a safe to protect against fire or water damage, you'll want to choose a location that's less prone to these types of hazards and opt for a safe like the Firecube, which offers up to 1-hour fire protection at 1700 °F and protection against sprinklers.
Here are some of the best locations to install a safe:
Bedroom: The bedroom is a popular location for a Biocube, especially for storing jewelry, cash, and other small items you want to keep close to you. Installing a safe in the place you spend time in every day is a great way to remember to use your safe when taking off jewelry, watches and accessing paperwork and travel documents.
Home office: If you work from home or have a home office, it's an ideal location for a safe. With a safe like the Biocube In-Drawer, you can store important documents, such as contracts, tax records, and financial statements, and access them quickly.
Garage: If you have a garage, it can be a great place to install a Biocube Professional for storing larger items, such as firearms, silver, collectibles, and more. The Biocube Professional with its sleek design can also be easily placed in bedroom closet for greater convenience.
Basement: The basement is another suitable location for a safe, as it's typically cooler and less prone to fire damage, and when a safe is heavy, it's harder to move it to a main floor with door access which can act as another deterrent. It's a good spot for storing items you don't need to access frequently, such as heirloom jewelry, deeds, photo albums, and birth certificates.
Office: If you have a separate office outside your home, you can install a safe like the Camocube, which is portable and great for on-the-go security to keep important business documents and equipment secure. The cable lock provided with this safe makes its installation quite versatile.
Kitchen: The kitchen is a place where we often spend a lot of time, and it's the first place where we're likely to take things out of our pockets or jewelry off of our wrists and hands. Putting car keys, cash, or a watch on the kitchen counter can mean that it could easily go missing. Using a safe such as out Biocube In-Drawer means that instead of leaving your valuables on the counter, you lock them up conveniently in a drawer knowing they won't go missing accidentally or otherwise.
Bathroom: We don't often think about installing a safe in a bathroom, but there are many potentially dangerous and valuable items here that merit locking up. Think about medications and gummies that if in the wrong hands can be potentially fatal, especially if young children ingest them accidentally. Locking up medications is always a good idea so that they don't fall into the wrong hands. Jewelry and watches are also commonly removed in the bathroom before a shower or washing your hands and face before bed. Having a small safe such as our Camocube or Biocube In-Drawer in the bathroom is a great way to remove these potential risks and keep your family and your valuables safe.
Choosing the right location for your safe is crucial to ensuring the safety and security of your valuables. By following these guidelines, you can ensure that your valuable items are always safe and secure.
