How to Choose The Best Rattan Storage Box
Keeping your outdoor cushions and blankets safe and dry is easy with a rattan storage box. These outdoor storage boxes look great in contemporary gardens, complement most garden furniture and are built to withstand wear and tear, as well as rain storms.
There’s a huge range on the market, with a variety of qualities available. If you’re struggling to decide on the best rattan storage box, check out this buyer’s guide.
Rattan storage boxes generally have a similar, simple design, but they are available in a range of finishes and colours. The more expensive boxes may double up as benches or coffee tables, while cheaper boxes will be smaller and possibly less long lasting.
Things to look out for design-wise include easy access (so either a removable lid or a gas lifted lid), and ease of movement. Most storage boxes have wheels and handles so they can be relocated with minimal fuss. Elevated feet will help keep the contents dry but provided you get a fully waterproof box, they aren’t completely necessary.
Storage capacity is usually measured in litres so this is worth keeping an eye on. Larger boxes will have up to 500 litres of space, while smaller ones may have under 200. The storage capacity you go for depends on how much space you have available, as well as how much you are wanting to store.
Weatherproofing is one of the most important things to consider. Your rattan box should be fully waterproof, sturdy and with a durable long lasting construction. Darker coloured boxes should be UV resistant to stop them from fading. You’ll pay more for a fully weatherproof box, but there’s not much worse than soggy cushions!
A rattan storage box will keep your cushions, blankets and any kids’ toys safe and dry, while also adding a little contemporary style to your garden. The Deuba Rattan Storage box is our personal favourite, thanks to the elegant black finish, ease of cleaning and spacious 416 litre capacity.
