While exposure to sunlight can bleach wood some people actually like that look so it isnt a huge issue but durability can be. Despite careful waterproofing wood remains highly porous and can still be damaged by water over time. Another option for outdoor storage is aluminum or wrought iron. Wrought iron is most often used in the garden and can be quite decorative. It is extremely durable able to endure rain snow or sun but it is also extremely heavy making it very difficult to move.
Aluminum is not the ideal material for outdoor storage boxes as it doesnt stand up to the elements well. It is prone to rust and corrosion and can even cause corrosion in other metal objects stored inside it. There are some designs that incorporate aluminum within other less corrosive materials such as bamboo or rattan but metal objects like garden tools can still rust if stored within one of these aluminum lined boxes. The bottom line when it comes to outdoor storage is that you need to find something that you can work with and that will last for as long as possible.
So what sorts of things are you currently storing inside that could be transferred to an outdoor storage product? While most people automatically think of storing yard gear and gardening supplies outdoor storage products are also great for out of season products. Running out of closet space? Seal up your large wool jackets and sweaters into plastic storage bags and then layer them in an outdoor storage box. Voila. An entire closet freed up and ready for things that are seasonally appropriate. Outdoor storage boxes are also great to store shoes even outdated kitchen supplies or old photo albums and books. Essentially anything youve been storing inside can be stored outdoors in an outdoor storage container making it easy to clean up your closets and basements and add storage where you need it the most.
So dont take your choice of storage box lightly consider all of your options and find the one that will suit your needs and enhance the look of your home for years to come. If there are any drawbacks to holiday decorating one of them might be the task of having to drag the outdoor decorations out of the attic and out to the yard every year. Or maybe you keep your decorations in an old cardboard box in the rafters of your garage. Not only are such storage containers awkward to lift up and down but they can get damp or even invite bug or rodent infestations...unpleasant surprises when you reach for your favorite string of holiday lights.
