Which is why you put it on the ground near someone else.

I had a massive weapon stash in the armorers house at the marketplace.
Since I was a mage I couldn't handle most weapons, and all really expensive weapons and armors were dropped there. Then I ended up in the wastelands, leaving 100k of weapons behond...I really reload and sell that stuff before heading out...

I keep my base in Joramís basement.

My bed room and the side room usually ends up looking like a pirates den with all of the chests that I take with me.
Mainly due to me not having enough Lock Pick Skill to open them, so I save them for later.

So, since I am still playing this in 2020...

I think leaving so many houses to choose from, the makers of the game did have in mind for us to use them. If you have a faible for decorating and roleplaying, it is possible to create a really sophisticated house. Rather like animal crossing. :) My favorite locations were:

1: Abandoned House (Aleroth, north) - It has a table to set, a bed, and a built-in storage box. Some prefer the one further to the right, because it has a cellar.
2: Shop (Aleroth, south) - It has a bookshelf, and, being a shop, a complete storage room. Not as much dust as the abandoned houses. I also set up a corner for kitty.
3: Jeremias Hut at the River (by the Cursed Abbey) - Very peaceful location with a haystack and cellar as hiding places. You find the only movable bed of the game here.
4: Bar (by the Dwarven Inn, lockpick it and chase the ghost out) - Everyone wants to own a bar, and there's free ale. I added the bed from Jeremias hut to the next room.
5: House of Timmy's Family (by the Archer Guild) - Finally real furniture and framed pictures, a kitchen and a tub of water outside.
6: House you can buy (Verdistis) - So far we have only been squatting; this is our very first properly owned house! (Don't leave anything there before buying, or stuff might disappear.)
7. Backpack (Sack of Wheat with Hay Bed inside) - I also like having a "backpack" with me for camping outside. Just put two bunches of hay inside a sack of wheat to create a hay bed in it (instruction: unravel one stack and then put the second bundle on it). To your own content, add a pillow and blanket (both with no weight), some food and a drinking mug. You can later create a lighter and more classy one from a book with a hidden compartment (found in the thief guild). Put in a bed, the rug from the con artist at the blue boar in, and a glass of chianti. :)

It would have been fun seeing screenshots of all of the suggestions so far, just to compare how others set up their base. :)

I gave a screenshot and description of my base in the topic Houses And their owners; I stayed in Joram's house for the first part of the game, then moved to the back of the council hall.

Ooh, Raze, were you using one of those ornate chests? Weren't those buggy and prone to disappearing when you closed the lid, taking all of the stuff with them? (The dark brown ones with the elaborate carving.) I had this happen in my Steam version and read that some others did, too. As I remember, it was the reason I quit one of my playthroughs.

I had a couple of those, but predominantly used other styles. It ones that seemed more likely to disappear were the ones that had a weight of zero when open.
