The third reason wooden deck boxes are beneficial is because they are great alternatives to clutter due to outdoor coolers. Coolers are essential for large parties but they can often take up more room on the deck than your guests. Wooden deck boxes can be purchased large enough to fit a large cooler or a few small coolers inside of them. Waterproof vinyl lining is also optional or can be purchased separate so you can pour the ice and drinks directly in the box.
The attraction of dirt and debris is a natural occurrence that happens to every deck box over time. Because it stays in one place throughout the year (and even year round in some cases), everything Mother Nature throws up, out, and around will eventually end up against the walls of your beautiful deck box. By knowing how you can protect and clean this piece of furniture now, you will be ensuring the protection of your investment for years to come, without all the hassle of constantly refinishing.
The fourth reason wooden deck boxes are a great investment is because they function as a great addition to the outdoor furniture world, but most will be beneficial indoors as well. Cedar and redwood deck boxes will not only match any theme inside the home but they will also reduce indoor clutter. They work great for holding dirty boots and wet shoes in a mudroom or breezeway.
If you have a plastic deck box, cleaning from time to time will be a much easier process - a natural attraction for those who live in places where you get all four seasons visiting. Because plastic is a solid, non-porous material, keeping it clean is a very easy process. Taking a mild cleaner (such as dish soap) and warm water to your plastic box will keep it clean throughout the year - apply when needed, and allow that natural shine to come back to your deck box. For the bigger projects, taking a harder cleaner will help get out the longer lasting stains. Always check what is in the cleaner before applying it to your plastic box; the wrong cleaner could eat away at the plastic, and eventually breaking down your box.
Plastic, most of the time polyethylene, is used in the construction of deck boxes. The plastic is injection molded into the sturdy panels that make up the walls and top. Boxes with double walled construction are very sturdy and reliable. This type of plastic will not chip or crack for the duration of its life, which makes it an investment that will hold true for many years. Some deck boxes are made from wood. While sturdy, wood is susceptible to rotting when exposed to water. It also has a tendency to attract critters and not be truly watertight.
