How To Make Home Safety Upgrades Aesthetically Pleasing

When it comes to your home and family, safety should always be a top priority. However, just because your home is meant to serve as a fortress of protection for those you love most doesn’t mean it has to look like Fort Knox on a bad day.


Indeed, there’s absolutely no need to sacrifice style for the sake of safety. You can, in fact, have both. All it takes is a bit of planning and a dash of creativity.

Glorious Gun Storage

If you’re a gun owner, then you know all too well the importance of storing your firearms safely. That doesn’t mean, though, that you have to consign yourself to the clunky old gray metal gun safes of yesteryear.


Nowadays, you can select from an array of gun storage options that offer both safety and style. You might opt for a more classic look with a lockable gun cabinet in rich mahogany or cherry wood. On the other hand, if you’re into a more modern or industrial aesthetic, why not go for a sleek safe in sophisticated steel or iron black?

Safe Sleeping in Negative Space

In addition to locking your guns away in style, you’re also going to want to prioritize sleep safety for your littlest rugrats. It’s especially important to provide firm, flat surfaces for newborns and infants to sleep on to reduce the risk of accidental falls or suffocation.


What this means is that you’re going to want to think minimalist when it comes to creating a safe sleeping space for your baby. The good news, though, is that with a little strategy, when you cut down on the filler in a room, you can ratchet up the style.


The key here is to make good use of the negative space you create when you clear away all the hazardous clutter. For example, instead of populating the room with various and sundry knick knacks and whatnots that are neither healthy for your little one nor for your aesthetic, focus on one or two statement pieces.


You can select from a seemingly endless assortment of styles when selecting your baby’s crib or bassinet. Choose a safety-certified piece in a vibrant color or eye-catching design that will draw the eye and anchor the space.

A Warm Welcome

When it comes to protecting your home from intruders, there’s perhaps nothing more important than a strong, secure front door. Once again, though, you don’t have to make your home look like a maximum security prison to get the protection you want for yourself and your loved ones.


Residential entry doors come in a range of materials, including heavy-duty steel, which is virtually impenetrable. Most exciting of all, these protective barriers are now being manufactured to suit every taste. They come in a veritable rainbow of colors and finishes, including faux wood finishes to lend a rustic feel to your exteriors.


Your exterior safety solutions don’t have to begin and end with your safe and stylish front door, however. Another important strategy is to light things up at night. This will ensure you’re able to keep watch on your home and property after dark. It’s also going to decrease the temptation for prospective troublemakers to lurk about where they don’t belong.


Best of all, a well-lighted exterior can also be quite beautiful if you play your cards right. For instance, you might light your walkway and porch with decorative solar lights. Similarly, a couple of coach lamps at the edge of your driveaway can provide Old World charm while ensuring you always have a clear view of the street at night.

Sleek Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Every home should have multiple smoke and carbon monoxide detectors on each floor of the house, and particularly in the kitchen and all bedrooms. That doesn’t mean, though, that it has to look like a tiny spaceship has landed on your walls and ceilings.


In fact, you can now choose from a wide variety of design options that are at once highly functional and visually appealing. For example, today’s smoke detectors can be camouflaged to look like high-end light fixtures or decorative items. You can find them ornamented in Venetian pave tile or even designed to look like an authentic conch shell! Virtually the only limit, in fact, is your imagination!

Clearing the Air

Every homeowner wants the air in their house to be fresh, clean, and healthy. If you have young children or people with respiratory illnesses or compromised immune systems living in the house, then indoor air quality is more than a passing concern, it’s often a significant health issue.


However, though traditional air fresheners may smell great and look aesthetically pleasing, they also often contain chemicals that can pose a significant health hazard to humans and animals. The good news, though, is that there are many safer alternatives that can both clean and freshen the air while also enhancing your design.


Decorating your home with plants, for example, will not only infuse your space with color, shape, and texture, but it will also help to clear the air of contaminants. If you want your home to smell delicious, then consider squeezing just a few drops of your favorite essential oil into a decorative diffuser. You’ll infuse your home with a safe, non-toxic fragrance while enjoying the aesthetic appeal of a diffuser that can double as a lovely objet d'art.

The Takeaway

Everyone wants their home to be both safe and inviting. Sometimes, however, it can feel as if you have to sacrifice style for the sake of safety. The good news, though, is that you can actually have both. All it takes is a bit of effort and some creativity. Choose a decorative, lockable cabinet in rich wood or sleek metal for storing your firearms safely. Capitalize on the visual appeal of negative space when you’re creating a safe sleep zone for your infant. Turn your entry door and front porch into an eye-pleasing fortress of protection. Get creative with the camouflage as you outfit your home with smoke and carbon monoxide detectors designed to look like decor. Last but certainly not least, use lush green plants and comely essential oil diffusers to clean and perfume the air safely and naturally.
