A deck storage box is the perfect item for storing things outdoors. You can store your pool supplies, equipment and anything else to which you want easy access, so you do not have to dig around in your garage looking for them. Deck boxes are usually plastic or water resistant wood such as teak.
Storage boxes of polyethylene plastic or wood have their advantages and their flaws. A wooden box, especially one made from teak, looks great sitting on your deck or at poolside but water can ruin it. If you do buy a wood deck box, make sure to use some type of sealant to keep water out.
The double walled polyethylene plastic is watertight to both rain and snow and might be the better choice. Polyethylene plastic is the material that manufacturers use to make toys, as it is close to indestructible. Some retailers offer Resin Wicker deck boxes and these actually look like natural Rattan Wicker but they are really polyethylene plastic.
Many a deck storage box sold today doubles as a seat for one or two persons. Wood is not the best choice here either, as wood breaks down over time and it develops splinters. Polyethylene plastic is usually more comfortable and you won’t have to deal with splinters.
