One of the latter storage units is the Deck Box with Wheels. This well-built box is constructed of resin in a light taupe color with a mocha top and handles. The wheels are unobtrusive but sturdy and easy to maneuver. It holds up to 73 gallons meaning it can store yards of Christmas lights as well as many wooden candy canes or tree ornaments. And because it features a stay dry design you wont have to worry that your valuable ornaments will ruin during their lengthy storage time.
The type of outdoor storage boxes you choose will depend on what you need to store and what the climate is like where you live. Outdoor boxes will generally have to withstand lengthy exposure to the sun as well as other elements like rain wind and even snow. Waterproofing is a major concern as you dont want either the box or its contents to be ruined by water damage. Generally plastic and fiberglass offer the best waterproofing allowing them to withstand even the most extreme elements.
Pool equipment is another potential headache. The chemicals and equipment used for cleaning the pool can all be kept locked up in the same place as the filtration unit but it is nice to have pool toys near to the water. This is especially true if there are children. A good-looking deck box or large storage bench will hold all the pool toys and it makes tidying up very easy to do as well as providing extra seating by the pool.
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.
