Recently I went online searching for the best rated outdoor storage benches with seating I could find, because having no place to store my outdoor pillows and stuff was just driving me nuts.
Buying one with seating options was actually a double whammy for me because with a big family you never have enough seats when everyone's coming for barbecue and such!
I am so fed up with buying "cheap" products that end up disappointing me, that this time I only wanted somerthing with good customer ratings, even though it would cost me a few bucks more.
I don't mind paying a little extra for a quality product, especially if I want it to last for years to come, and of all the dozens I found through my search, I finally narrowed my list down to these here below.
This storage container really is a great choice, especially for large families. It will keep all your things and accessories dry, ventilated and safe while not in use, and the automatic opening mechanism prevents little fingers from getting pinched.
It is made from a non-toxic weather resistant plastic material and is built to last for years. If you have enough space on your patio or garden, it is a great option because of its huge storage capacity (150 Gal).
This is another deck box I really like. It has a considerably smaller capacity than the first one and seems to be a great fit for smaller households. Probably better for storing gardening tools and toys rather than huge volume items such as large patio cushions.
It is made from long lasting resin, and for the technically challenged people (like me), the easy assembly is a huge bonus!
As Rubbermaid say themselves, this product "combines storage with seating for maximum use of space", hence it is a great solution for those who have limited space.
One of the things I like most about this bench is that it is easy to assemble, weather resistant and maintenance free, but a downside is that some people claim that it isn't completely waterproof.
The back and arms add extra support and comfort while sitting on it, and a couple nice patio cushions would make it even comfier. And it really looks cute and decorative!
I really like the look of this 30 Gal storage bench. If you're looking for a beautiful garden bench with the added bonus of having some space beneath it for your accessories, toys, garden tools etc., this one is a winner.
The wood is stained, and some people complain that it loses color with time, but in general, it seems to be a great and sturdy bench that owners really love.
This cute little patio seat actually turned out to be too small for my needs, but because I had already made a note of it, I decided to include it here, because based on all the great customer ratings and reviews it has, it seems to be in demand.
It will look really nice on a small patio, and why not place a colorful cushion on it for extra comfort?
