Rubbermaid offers patio benches and deck boxes that range from 2.6 cubic feet to 16 cubic feet. These boxes open wide so that you can easily access your stored goods. The boxes are stable and also function reliably as spare seating with Rubbermaids double-walled construction. Some of the patio benches come formed with armrests and back support for a more patio furniture look to disguise your storage.
Wooden outdoor storage benches may require more upkeep as they get older and their protective finish wears off. Two of the main things to look for in a bench is how durable it will be and if the product is worth the cost. Choosing from the many styles available can be a little tough because odds are you will fall in love with many of them. One way to ensure that the bench you choose is ideal is to make sure that it has plenty of storage capacity and that was manufactured by a popular brand. Most benches are rugged enough to handle the elements and offer many years of use making them a wise investment and a pleasure to own.
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.
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.
