An Overview On Outdoor Storage

Outdoor deck boxes are designed to hold patio cushions, tools, pool supplies and more while protecting them from the elements. Many are made from resin, which is an organic substance obtained from plants and trees. Plastics like polypropylene are added to make resin water-resistant and more durable.

Like resin, plastic deck boxes are lightweight and easy to care for but may not last as long. Wood deck boxes are probably the best-looking choice, but they may require more upkeep.

Before shopping for an outdoor deck box, decide what you want to store in it. Smaller containers can hold up to 50 gallons, are good for things like towels and hoses and can often do double duty as seats or tables.

Medium-sized options store from 51 to 99 gallons and will hold a full set of cushions and gardening supplies. Larger sized deck boxes range from 100 to 150 gallons and can store even more cushions and other big items. However, if you need to go bigger, consider getting a full-sized storage shed with doors.

The Outdoor Storage Buying Guide

  • Read product manuals online to see how the outdoor box or shed is assembled. You may need a friend to help.
  • Many of these boxes and sheds can be locked for security.
  • If you want to go with wood, choose one made from moisture-resistant wood like teak or pine with a veneer finish.
