With such an increased need for patio storage, the market has exploded with a wide variety of deck box products in various types, shapes, and styles to suit any outdoor deck, patio, lanai, veranda, terrace, or balcony.
Note, no matter what type you choose, the capacity of any deck box is based on its inside dimensions. Be sure to measure the inside of the box you are considering or ask the vendor for the measurements to make sure it will meet your needs.
Deck Box Bins & Chests
Made specifically for storage, these bins and chests are typically larger capacity (100+ gallons).

Some of the storage units are accessible by a lift top or through single or double doors on the side.

Deck box benches typically measure 18 to 20 inches tall and are shaped like a rectangular box with a lift top lid.

The bench can be fitted with lightweight, colorful cushions to add a decorative look to your patio or deck and add extra seating for guests.
