1.Avoiding the standard drawers and cupboards
We all believe that leaving your valuables out of sight is the first and foremost way to protect your belongings. It obviously draws less attention when they are hidden in drawers and cupboards. But that is unfortunately just temporary. Because most thieves are used to looking for money, jewellery and other things in drawers and cupboards, even more so if they are located in the study or the bedroom. Our first advice is to avoid the obvious by hiding your diamond jewels and other valuables in more unusual places.
2. Have you ever thought about the kitchen?
Yes, we are talking about the kitchen. That is because, unless you have left things on the counter or your handbag in the kitchen, it is extremely unlikely that it will be searched by thieves. Thieves that commit residential burglaries only stay a short amount of time in the house, which is why they focus on the more standard and obvious rooms as mentioned earlier.
The kitchen is really rarely thought of.
3. Choosing the nursery
The second location that is not looked into, for both moral and practical reasons is the baby’s nursery. Why would you hide your jewellery in a baby’s room in the first place? It is very uncommon and to a certain extent not very practical either. This is exactly the reason why you should, especially for long stays away, you should hide your valuables in the nursery.
According to various statistics that were calculated by various insurance companies in the UK, jewellery and watches remain the most stolen items in burglaries with a high 43% rate. In second position you find the expected money and wallets at 38%, followed closely by computers and various electronic gadgets at 34%.
