Warm weather is upon us! For many, this many there will be time enjoyed outside on the patio with family and friends. Of course this means you will want to have a great looking deck! One way to make everything look great is to make sure you have a neat place to store things away like the BrylaneHome Rolling Deck Box.
Since our patio furniture has cushions I wanted to store away, I was excited to be able to try out the 103 gallon box, but they also have a 71 gallon box if you would prefer something that takes up less room.
What I Love
The BrylaneHome patio storage container has so much room to fill! It holds everything from toys to outdoor pillows, cushions, gardening supplies, citronella candles, and more! Living in the South not too far out from the ocean, we get a ton of rain so I wanted to hide away the furniture cushions so they do not get moldy. To my surprise, I was able to fit all 9 inside with a little room to spare. The one time we accidentally left them out in a rain, it took quite some time for them to dry all the way through so when we sat on what looked like a clean, dry cushion we found out it was actually a soggy mess. Previously we had all of our patio things in a deep cardboard box in our little storage room. While it held them fine, the box looked messy, was hard for me to reach into since I’m short, and over time it started to break down. This deck box is awesome because it is large, low to the ground, and made of heavy-duty plastic that won’t fall apart like cardboard.
Assembly was simple. All the pieces snap together with ease, no tools required. My husband did not even need to use the instructions sheet because you could tell where each part went. He had the entire deck organizer set up in minutes.
This outdoor storage bin is made with rust-free polypropylene (fairly safe–while unsafe during production, this is not known to leach cancer-causing or hormone disturbing chemicals according to Care2 and HealthyChild.org on plastic safety) and is weather-proof. It has lockable lid–I would recommend utilizing this option as it will not only prevent your possessions from being stolen, but will also prevent water from leaking in. Since we had so many cushions in our deck box, the holes for the lock did not line up perfectly so when it rained some water got inside. The only part inside the box that was wet was the very bottom so we knew it had to be the padlock hole. We dried everything out then put everything back inside just as before but this time we used a lock. Several huge rainstorms since and no leaks at all!
With its wheels on the bottom and handle at one end, the BrylaneHome deck box is easy to move around. We had to relocate it and had no issues rolling it to where we needed it to be.
I love that this patio organizer provides outdoor seating; since it is so sturdy, you are able to sit on top! While we have a decent amount of chairs on our deck, I appreciate having a little extra for when we have company over. Another plus is that it looks great on the patio so it is functional but decorative as well.
What I’m Not Huge On
I really don’t like feeling that I have to use a padlock on the container or it will leak–I am not too worried about my cushions getting stolen as many leave theirs out anyway so it just adds one more step, but it is not that difficult of a step to take and I suppose it is good to get into the habit of locking our things away. It only takes a minute so I do not really mind using a lock, but since I have a tendency to misplace things…like keys…I would prefer another way to keep things closed tightly and prevent leaks.
Overall, the BrylaneHome Rolling Outdoor Storage Box is a great way to tidy up your patio, gain extra seating, and keep your things protected from bad weather, fading, and theft. A sturdy and spacious patio box, you will get great use out of this! You can purchase the deck box in the 71 gallon size (21-3/4″H x 46-3/4″L x 21″D) for about $110 or the 103 gallon size (29-1/4″H x 55″L x 24″D) for about $130. It comes in beige with a dark brown lid. Click here to learn more about this product! Check out BrylaneHome on Facebook and Twitter!
Bonus tip: Add a cushion to the top to coordinate with your decor and make the box extra comfortable for sitting on!
