Another thing you should consider is a storage cabinet’s additional features. Some outdoor storage cabinets feature grid floors that keep tools with long handles in place; adjustable shelves so you can easily fit items inside; lockable items to prevent theft and protect your kids from getting their hands on potentially hazardous items; and raised door sills to prevent leaks and keep stored items from tumbling out.
Next, consider what type of outdoor cabinet you would like to have. Some outdoor storage cabinets are made of plastic. These types are generally waterproof, spacious, and have a number of useful features. Other outdoor storage cabinets are made of wood. These are often very spacious, relatively sturdy, but are not always waterproof, and may not be able to stand extreme weather conditions. If you are going for wooded outdoor cabinets, make sure to thoroughly seal the wood. Some storage cabinets are made of metal such as steel, combination metal, and aluminum.
