Keep it Safe and Secure with a hidden floor safe
Do you have valuables? Would you like to keep these valuables hidden without it being obvious that they are hidden? If you are like most people, I’m sure you answered “yes” to both of those questions. Fortunately, there is a way of keeping those valuables safely tucked away, unseen to any “wandering” eyes.
Hidden floor safes are becoming more and more popular. Since you don’t have the limitations that are usually in place with wall safes, you can dig your hole as deep as necessary with a hidden floor safe. Unlike a bulky safe that might sit in a corner or a closet, you don’t have to worry about someone seeing your safe, because it is safely hidden beneath you.
In order to enjoy these hidden flooring solutions, you would need a few things, one of those things being concrete.
Concrete is a very important factor, and plays a huge role in flooring and hidden floor safes. Concrete flooring is incredibly strong, hard, durable, and are easily repaired in case of concrete cracks. When sealed properly, concrete flooring resists grit, dirt, spills, stains and hard impact. This all works in conjunction to keep your valuables safe from burglary and time. Most people envision an ‘industrial’ or ‘prison’ look when they think of concrete flooring, but that is on the contrary. These days it has the ability to take on color and a polished sheen, offering a warm and elegant look.
In order to successfully take advantage of all hidden flooring solutions one would definitely need a few tools and tricks. Unless you are prepared to use a lot of ‘man-strength’ and sweat, a jack hammer is highly suggested to break up any existing concrete. Waterproof sheeting is recommended as an extra combat against the effects of moisture. Concrete would need to be poured in the bottom of the hole and allowed to dry before lowering the safe and filling the space left around the sides. This concrete encasement will make it virtually impossible for any potential thieves to steal without being excessively loud. To get the safe out of the encasement and hole, and carry it out to work on opening it would take too much time and a lot of noise.
Once you have your safe safely in the floor and encased in concrete you would need a camouflage or disguise for it. This is where you can get creative. You can choose to overlay the concrete with tile, so that every square inch is identical and only you know where the safe is. Dawn plank cork flooring and rubber flooring can also be used to cover the concrete floor and seamlessly conceal your hidden floor safe. There are countless other DIY ideas that are easy and affordable.
Rest easier with your valuables protected, secured and tucked away safely in a hidden floor safe, encased in concrete. I think it’s “safe” to say it’s not likely that anyone is going to walk off with that. Join the hundreds who have found that concrete floors and hidden floor safes go hand in hand, and never worry about your valuables again.
