To start, consider the elements that your deck box will be submitted to throughout the year. Will your deck box be forced to face the snow in one season and rain in the other, or are you living the Beach Boys' endless summer? Will the box have to tolerate the rain and wind in the winter, or will it be facing the endless attacks of bugs and dirt? Knowing what it will be exposed to will give you a better idea of what kind of deck box is right for you.
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.
When the time comes to put the yard tools away after a job well done, you need to have a safe and reliable place to store them. If you find yourself looking for shelving space that doesn't exist, consider getting a dedicated outdoor storage solution. Sheds are a great idea for people needing a lot of storage space, but what about people who just need enough for their tools? A great solution is to use a deck box. Deck boxed are similar to floor chests in appearance but are made of weather proof materials, mostly plastic. Deck boxes are double walled for extra protection, keeping dirt and rain off of the contents. A hinged or removable top cover allows for quick access to the items inside. Most deck boxes can also have a dual function of a seat. Here are some things that you should look for when buying a deck box:
Plastic, most of the time polyethylene, is used in the construction of deck boxes. The plastic is injection molded into the sturdy panels that make up the walls and top. Boxes with double walled construction are very sturdy and reliable. This type of plastic will not chip or crack for the duration of its life, which makes it an investment that will hold true for many years. Some deck boxes are made from wood. While sturdy, wood is susceptible to rotting when exposed to water. It also has a tendency to attract critters and not be truly watertight.
Take a look at your deck. Are there hoses strewn around? Are the grill accessories sitting on the patio table? How about the pool toys or chemicals, are they placed on the deck floor because you do not want to tote them to the garage? If you see any of these scenarios, or any others, then you should invest in a couple of deck boxes for storage.
