Outdoor Storage Solutions for Your Holiday Decorations

By Nick Demiro Subscribe to RSS | February 3rd 2012 | Views:

Most of us struggle with storage – be it indoor or outdoor, especially those of us who live in older homes that were built way back when people simply had less stuff and therefore, needed less closets. Nowadays, we’ve all got stuff – and tons of it, especially in the case of holiday decorations – and we’ve all got a sob story to go with it. There’s the folks that lost all of their beloved family memento ornaments when a flood devastated their basement storage area. There’s the people that keep them in the attic, and later discovered that mice were chewing through their boxes. There’s the family that lives in a small townhouse and simply doesn’t have room to store their tree year round but has chosen a reusable tree to save money. All of us have a story to share, and none of us have the space to store what we need to when it comes to holiday decorations.

Here’s the good news: there’s a solution, and it’s an easy one. Many of us forget about the extra storage space we have on our patio, in our garage, out in the back yard. Outdoor space is often thought of as simply seasonal – that is, those of us who live in cooler climates assume that we can’t use any form of outdoor storage for fear that the weather will wreck havoc on our chosen storage method come winter. The truth is, outdoor storage has come a long way. It’s no longer milk crates and metal boxes – these days, plastic that can withstand all the elements doesn’t just get the job done, but also looks pretty while doing it!

It might sound crazy, but if you’re pressed for space this holiday season when it comes to decoration storage, consider an outdoor storage solution for your holiday decorations. You’ll breathe a big sigh of relief once everything is put away come New Years, and you’ll rest easy knowing that things are secure for the next year and that you won’t have to worry about tripping over that extra box in the basement. If you’re looking for a smart storage solution for holiday decorations, consider a large plastic deck box. Form and function meet style in this great storage piece, which features either 103 or 127-gallon capacity – that’s a whole lot of ornament space!

This box is often used for cushions, yard gear, pool supplies and more, but that’s not to say you couldn’t use it for holiday decoration storage as well. Wreaths that aren’t in use the rest of the year would fit perfectly, as would stacked boxes of ornaments. Broken down, your tree might even fit as well! Imagine, getting all of your holiday decorations oonto one box!

If you’re looking for a storage solution that’s a bit more stylish, consider a deck box with a seat on top of it. Great for storing just about anything, this box doubles as extra bench seating on your patio, in your pool area, or in the front yard when you’re not using it. Get better bang for your buck with a product that does double duty, and clear the clutter out of your basement for good! Organize your ornaments and decorations in smaller boxes, then store the boxes in your deck box on your patio. Throwing some burgers on the grill? Consider having a few guests over, because you’ve got the seating to do it! With enough room for 129 gallons, you’re sure to be able to fit everything you need in your deck box, and the large size holds multiple chair cushions so you can ensure that it’s comfortable under your bottom. Garden and pool supplies would make a happy couple inside this deck box, but there’s no reason why your holiday supplies couldn’t live inside there as well.

Another great thing about deck boxes; unlike more complicated storage systems, like the kinds you install in closets and garages, deck boxes are easy to put together, and are relatively inexpensive. You can clear out the clutter and get things organized for under $200! What’s not to love? Easy assembly with no tools required deck boxes are weatherproof and constructed from long-lasting, stay dry resin to ensure storage for years to come. Choose your color, get packing, and let’s get organized!
