What experts liked

Crafted from resin, the wicker design adds an appealing look. Stays dry in all weather. A strong and sturdy design helps the box work as a bench too. Can be secured with a padlock.

Assembly of the Suncast DBW9200 deck box is very simple and can be completed in under 20 minutes. Essentially the panels snap together to form the box, and most of the assembly involves installing the metal rod that provides strength to the lid and installing the hinge mechanisms.
- Outside Modern
Easy to construct, very spacious, and blends perfectly with all the other wicker poolside equipment and furniture.

Incorporating a wicker design, the Suncast deck box adds a chic boho look to any patio or garden.

What experts didn't like

Can be difficult to assmeble. Needs to be stained or sealed to avoid wood graying.
- BestReviews
The hinges on this deck box are made of plastic, and they do lock in place and hold the lid upright (with the help of two straps). However, they are not soft close, and when you begin to close the box, the lid will flop right down. The plastic hinges are not as high quality as metal pistons found in more expensive deck boxes.
- Outside Modern
Followed directions precisely but lid is mis-aligned making it nearly impossible to snap closed. Also the so-called lock feature is useless, impossible to slip even the smallest lock in there.

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.
