If you have a wooden deck box, taking care of your investment may take several more steps before it gets easier. The materials that it is made out of will ultimately determine the best way to approach the sealing and cleaning of your outdoor furniture. While hard woods like cedar can take oil treatments to keep it protected, other woods (like pine or cypress) can be stained to give it an extra layer of protection, or even painted to your pleasure. Adding these protective barriers give your box a solid layer of protection against the elements, protecting from everything the world wants to throw at it and more. Plus, once your box has this key protective layer set up, cleaning can be as simple as taking a sponge and warm water to your box.
The second reason wooden deck boxes will save you time and money is due to their ability to act as other pieces of furniture. Using the box as extra seating for guests is easy with the boxes because most of them are made with flat lids and a sturdy foundation and many are large and sturdy enough to fit two adults at once comfortably. They can also act as coffee tables or a bench next to the pool or hot tub.
Once you have considered this key step of the progression, it is time to figure out how it will play into your year-round strategy. Will your box store your patio needs throughout the year and the seasons, or will your box (and everything inside) come inside during the brutal winters? Will your box stay in a shady spot on your deck all year round, or will it be exposed? By considering these things through, you will be considering what your box will need to endure.
After what seems like years of deliberation, you have decided that a deck box is the only thing that can store all of your goods all summer long. You have been sold by the facts that these are convenient, space-saving places to hold your cushions and other items relevant to your patio. But with so many different kinds of patio furnishings out there, which one is right for you? Should you go with wood, or is plastic a more appropriate choice?
For making the lid cover, must be slightly larger than the box. Holes have to be drilled for hinges on the lid as well as on the box. Now the hinges can be connected and the screws can be fastened. When the box has been assembled into one piece, the final step of painting or staining has to be done. Few layers of paint can be applied evenly on the box and when one layer dries, proceed to the next. Painting is important as it helps to keep the box in a good condition for a longer time.
