versatile teak wood storage options for the outdoors
Having storage outside is a great help, especially when you have a lot of outdoor items that you’d rather not take inside the house, have take up space in the already-cramped garage or simply splayed about your backyard or patio. And if you think your only alternative is ugly plastic bins, think again! You can enjoy the same aesthetic and practical benefits from teak for your outside storage options that you enjoy from your teak furniture.
Camrose Teak Storage Box
In case you didn’t already know, teak wood is one of the best, if not the best, options for outdoor furniture. The natural oils in the wood give it a natural barrier from the drying effects of the sun, mold, mildew and general wood rot. As the years roll on, teak remains strong and beautiful, changing from a warm honey tone to a more silvery gray. All of this means virtually no maintenance year to year and more time for you to enjoy your outdoor furniture.
Del Amo Teak Wood Storing Bench
Teak storage pieces not only give you all of these benefits but so much more. Instead of boring boxes that don’t match your furniture or make your outdoor living space look “cheap”, opt for beautiful teak that will also last for years and years. In addition, most teak furniture comes in sleek, simple lines that complement any décor or setting.
What can you store? Use your new teak storage pieces to collect all of your outdoor toys, chair cushions when not in use, your barbecue accoutrement, gardening tools, towels and pool supplies (just make sure they’re fully dry before storing them). You can also use the top as a table, beautifully displaying flowers, cordless lamps, or a midday or midnight snack and tea.
