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.
These cabinets are generally industrial grade, which means they are extremely durable and can withstand rough usage. But if you need storage for a covered area that is protected from the elements such as a covered patio, consider storage cabinets that have a decorative element to them, such as wicker furniture pieces or those made of rattan. These are ideal for storing small and light items and can also spruce up a dull patio or terrace.
