Thanks for reading,
I love being outdoors. Benches and seating make it much more inviting. Thanks for your recommendations 🙂
this is very well done. I have been looking for something like this for July. I will be getting one soon now. Thanks so much. Great review and extremely helpful.
Storage Benches have a duel use which makes them very desirable for homeowners looking to make storage decisions.
These bench / storage units are a great idea to combine the two. This would look great in our back yard and it will help with the kids toys at the same time.
Thanks for giving so many great ideas on this topic!
Look at the water proof storage also. Not all of the bench storage units are waterproof.
So handy to have a place to store outdoor items and be able to use it for a seat. My husband and I love sitting on our patio, and having something as handy as the Suncast 50 Gallon Deck Box with Seat, will make our time outside all the more pleasant. Thank you for your recommendations.
There is so much more to put into your outdoor space that just a bench. You can get all kinds of furniture with storage. Having outdoor furniture with dual purpose saves some space if you have a small patio or deck area.
