Buyer's Guide: Outdoor Storage Solutions


Although storage space is typically a priority in nearly every room of a house, many overlook this crucial feature when it comes to their outdoor spaces. Outdoor storage can be a valuable addition to just about any home by offering a place to stow tools and outdoor items that won’t fit in the garage. There are a few different storage options, and each has particular advantages depending on the items you need to store. The three main types of outdoor storage are sheds, outdoor storage boxes and specialized storage:


Sheds are versatile backyard structures that can provide ample storage for pretty much anything you might need to stow. They come in a range of sizes from basic lean-to structures or outdoor storage cabinets to larger outbuildings that are big enough to function as additions or substitutes for garage spaces. Smaller-sized sheds frequently come in handy for housing shovels, rakes and other gardening supplies, while larger sheds are particularly useful for storing large maintenance items such as mowers, trimmers and large power tools.

Keep in mind when shopping for the right shed that most models will require some assembly, and that all will need to be placed on a level area. Sheds provide lots of storage, but they do take up a decent amount of space so be sure to account for that when selecting one.



Outdoor Storage Boxes

Outdoor storage boxes are large storage containers that can be used to stow a variety of items like gardening supplies, pool toys, outdoor cushions and sports gear. These are typically arranged in a basic trunk configuration, offering a large internal compartment that shields its contents from water and dust. Storage benches are a popular variation on the standard outdoor storage box, which use the main storage compartment as a broad seating space. These will frequently include a back or arms to make them more comfortable. Some storage benches will also come with their own cushions – if they don’t, you may want to consider purchasing outdoor cushions separately as they can add a lot of comfort and color to your outdoor furniture.



Specialized Outdoor Storage

Specialized outdoor storage consists of a variety of different storage spaces that are designed specifically to contain certain items. Some examples of these helpful additions include trash can storage, bicycle storage and shelving for storing firewood.

· Trash can storage comes in a few different sizes and is made to house smaller outdoor trash cans or the large street-side bins. Storage for trash cans can keep bins safe from the elements and prevent any curious critters from being able to sort through your garbage.

· Outdoor bike storage is a useful solution for those who have bicycles that can’t be stored in a garage or other shelter. It’s a great idea to keep your bike in a protected location when not in use, as it can not only shield it from the elements, but adds another layer of security that can help deter theft.

· Firewood storage typically will come with a cover and offers a space to keep logs dry, neatly stacked and off the ground so they are always ready for use.
