1. Rhino Longhorn LNS2618 Nightstand

This nightstand by Rhino metals is by far my favorite gun safe that looks like a nightstand. While it may not really be a diversion safe, as it actually looks like a safe, it does however have an awesome distressed finish, a true safe style locking mechanism and of course a round handle.

With a 14 gauge steel construction, and fire protection of up to 40 minutes at 1400 degrees it also the only product on this list that truly is a gun safe, instead of just a diversion safe without any true security.

You will also find this safe on our list of best overall home safes as well!

2. Tactical Walls Nightstand

If you have spent much time on this sight, you have likely seen me mention the Tactical Walls brand. They offer some great prices on high quality diversion style safes.

With the nightstand, it actually looks like a nightstand, making it difficult to tell that there may be anything stored on the inside, unless you know where to look.

So how does it open? This nightstand opens up a hidden compartment underneath the top of the stand that opens via magnetic keys. Basically you place the magnetic key on a specific part of the nightstand, and it releases an internal pin that allows the bottom to drop down, revealing your valuables or firearms.

Another great feature? Its one of the lesser expensive version of a nightstand safe on this list.


  • External Dimensions: 31″ High by 23″ Wide by 23″ Deep
  • Internal Dimensions: 14″ Wide by 11 3/4″ Deep by 2″ High
  • Weight: 35 pounds


  • Less expensive than competitors
  • High quality
  • Many different finishes


  • Not much height in the internal compartment
  • No true locking mechanism

3. American Concealed Hidden Gun Nightstand

The American Concealed brand has a reputation for being one of the best of the best, when it comes to concealment furniture and that is no different when it comes to their nightstand.

A quick look at their quality, and you know they are furniture first, and gun safe second. Meaning you are going to not only have a great place to store firearms and valuables, but also a piece of furniture you could pass down to your kids, kids.

Unlike many of the other options on this list, instead of a bottom dropping down or the top lifting up, you actually slide out the sides of the nightstand to reveal pistol pockets.

This is also one of the most customizable nightstands on this list as well, as they have 21 stain options at the time of this writing, and many other customization options as well.


  • External Dimensions: 29″ Tall x 30″ Wide x 19″ Deep
  • Internal Dimensions: (Unknown) Holds Up To 6 Pistols, Plus Two Fixed Shelves For Ammo.
  • Weight: Unknown


  • High Quality
  • Unique storage solution
  • Many customizable options


  • High price point
  • No concealed flat drawers for valuables

4. Top Gun Night Stand

If you want another option other than the American Concealed nightstand we talked about above, this Top Gun Night Stand is also a high quality option as well.

My favorite thing about this one, is the fact that it is more usable than about anything else on this list, as it has 3 functional drawers on the front, but then a diversion safe in the form of the top sliding out.

Much like the Tactical Walls version above, this one also utilizes a magnetic key to allow the top to slide out. This key is placed on the middle rear of the top of the night stand, which allows it to quickly slide forward, revealing your valuables.

Some other cool things about this unit? You can buy a second, non-hidden gun safe to match for a fraction of the price, to make your room match. Another cool thing, is that you can actually buy a wireless remote locking mechanism for the safe.


  • External Dimensions: 28″ High by 26″ Wide by 16″ Deep
  • Internal Dimensions (hidden compartment): 2 1/2″ High by 20″ Wide by 12 1/2″ Deep
  • Weight: Unknown


  • High Quality
  • Usable normal drawers
  • Many stain colors


  • High price point

5. Casual Home Kennedy End Table Concealment Furniture

If you are on the hunt for a concealment nightstand, but don’t have much of a budget, it isn’t going to get much better than this one!

It’s simple design, and lack of options allows it to be the only unit on this list that is under $100. However it still is able to maintain exactly what is needed in a safe that looks like a nightstand, which is to look like a nightstand, but be able to store firearms.

With a warm brown finish, and felt lined interior, there isn’t much else other than that!

You are able to store your valuables in a hidden compartment that drops down from the inside of the bottom of the nightstand which is opened by a simple latch mechanism on the bottom of the top.


  • External Dimensions: 23″ Wide by 20″ Deep by 24″ High
  • Internal Dimensions: 8″ Wide by 13″ Deep by 2.25″ High
  • Weight: 21.2 pounds


  • Very inexpensive
  • Does what it is meant to do


  • Lower quality
  • No locking mechanism

What to keep in mind when looking at gun safes that look like night stands?

If you are on the hunt for a good safe that looks like a night stand, these few things are what you should be considering when doing your shopping.


Like really all diversion safes, security (in the traditional sense) is not top of mind, as these safes rely on the bad guys not being able to locate the items, rather than protecting your valuables and fire arms from brute force.

Because of that, for the most part (other than the Rhino Night Stand) you will find they are all made of wood, with extremely simple locking mechanisms.

Make sure to think about this before you buy, as these aren’t great options if you are wanting to keep things away from people that know about this nightstand. For example: children.


There is a huge range of products on this category that have different quality standards. However you can generally assume that the higher priced units are going to be higher quality (duh).

Make sure to do your research, and that you are buying what you need. I’m not saying you have to spend a lot, but just be aware of the quality of the unit you are buying.


This type of safe not only is protecting your valuables, but it also is going to live a double life as something you put your phone, alarm clock, and your watch on at night. So make sure that you are buying a unit that will work for your purposes, outside of having hidden compartments.

Does it look like a nightstand?

While this may be obvious for those that are reading this article, make sure your night stand safe is actually a night stand, otherwise it will stick out like a sore thumb, and be the first place that a thief will look.

If it looks out of place, its not secure, so get the right one for your home.

Other options than an actual nightstand

So you have read through this article, and realized that maybe a safe that looks like a night stand is actually not for you? I would recommend these couple articles, as they might give you some good ideas for other options.


I hope this article gave you some great ideas to start your hunt for the right gun safe that looks like a nightstand.

It is always fun to put these articles together, as its cool to see how so many different companies offer a similar product, that is made oh-so-differently.

Good luck on your buying journey, and I hope this helped you find the product you need.
