Outdoor Storage Ideas – 10 Picks for Your Deck or Patio

It is time to rethink your outdoor oasis. Add some storage solution if you have limited space. Consider the top ten tips we have gathered to create storage for your patio or deck.

When it comes to outdoor storage, there are a few things you need to take into account. First and foremost, you need to make sure that whatever solution you choose is weatherproof and will withstand the elements. Secondly, you need to consider what type of items you’ll be storing outdoors. And lastly, you want to make sure that your storage solution is stylish and compliments your outdoor living space.

With those things in mind, we’ve compiled a list of the best outdoor storage ideas for your deck or patio. From sleek and modern storage benches to rustic wooden chests, there’s something on this list for everyone. So whether you’re looking for a place to store pool toys or garden tools, we’ve got you covered.

  1. Pegboard storage

Pegboards are a great way of storing items. They can hold tools, bbq accessories or any other hanging items you may have. You can hang them on your wall or fence and they come in different shapes and sizes. Some people choose to make their own pegboard storage units but if you don’t have the time or space for this then there are plenty of options available at home stores that will fit your needs perfectly.

There are many different materials used for making pegboards so it’s important to take into account what your end goal is before buying one! If you’re looking more for decorative purposes than practical use then wood might be best suited for this job since it looks great in any setting when paired with other elements such as garden furniture and fences  (which can also make great storage solutions too!)

  1. Hanging baskets on your fence 

You can hang baskets on your fence using a variety of methods, including:

  • Hanging them from hooks or nails that are attached to the top of your fence (we recommend using at least two hooks per basket)
  • Using clamps to secure them directly onto the fence

When selecting baskets for hanging on fences, try selecting ones with sides that are tall enough so that nothing falls out as you walk by. Also remember if you’re using them for plants,  some plants need more sunlight than others—the label should tell you what type of light they need!

  1. DIY rack

Using a metal frame, you can make your own tool rack. You’ll need to be careful when choosing the appropriate size and weight of your tools, as well as the strength of the metal frame. To attach hooks to this type of rack, use a power drill to make holes in the metal bars then thread them onto hooks.

Make sure your tool rack is sturdy enough to hold all of your tools before hanging it up on the wall. The best way to do this is by testing where each tool will be placed and making sure there is enough space between them so they don’t knock against each other while being moved around or used.

Hanging this type of storage unit from underneath an overhang (like a porch roof) may also be an option if there’s no room available on walls near where you want everything stored; just make sure it won’t become damaged during high winds or storms!

A beautiful pine floating shelf can be used to store items as well, if you have an open plan kitchen or dining room that leads in the garden, having these either side of the doors within easy reach is a great idea for items you want at hand but wouldn’t leave outside all the time.

  1. Table with storage

An outdoor crate coffee table with storage goes an extra mile to satisfy your outdoor storage needs. The multipurpose table is not hard to build. Simply gather some wooden crates and paint them with vibrant color, add some caster wheels, and here comes the coffee table with plenty of storage for your outdoor essentials.

  1. Potting bench with shelf

A potting bench is an ideal piece of furniture for gardening enthusiasts, as it provides a place to plant and care for plants, store different tools and accessories, and more. If you have a large deck or patio with plenty of space, consider building your own potting bench with shelves. You can use it as both a bench and a table to hold things like fertiliser bottles or gardening books while tending to your plants. This outdoor storage item also makes an excellent window seat when made with oak beams and placed near the window so that you can sit back and enjoy the view outside while admiring the flowers on your deck or patio!

  1. Hanging organiser

A hanging organiser is a simple solution to keep some tools in the right place. You can stuff the pockets with everything you want from gardening gloves to plant stakes to clippers. You can hang it anywhere you want either on a wall of the greenhouse or tool shed.

  1. Turn an old bookcase into a bench

Here comes an ingenious idea! Do you have a bookcase? If yes! Excellent, fill cubbies with foam and add paint! Boom! Here comes the multifunctional bench that has not cost you an arm and a leg. The idea is simple: you don’t need to be a handyman to execute it.

  1. Resin wicker table 

The resin wicker table may seem like an ordinary side table, but some may come with a sneaky surprise. If you raise the table top height; it comes with cooler storage underneath. The multi-function patio table will be the perfect thing to give your outdoor storage a personality while also adding some much needed storage

  1. Compact cabinet

If the backyard is modestly sized and you are still looking for outdoor storage, consider adding a garden cabinet with enough room to stack all handheld tools. Put it in a place where there is no sun, or paint it with a weather-resistant stain. You can also use hooks to add additional storage to the cabinet and castors to make it easy to move around.

  1. Put in the ottoman

It is hard to think of any piece more functional than ottomans. This multi-purpose furniture does triple the job, provides you a storage facility and can serve as a coffee table or even an extra seat. The storage depends upon the ottoman’s size; the deeper it is, the better it will be. Having one ottoman outdoors allows you to put anything away quickly and easily- from stashing towels, gardening tools and spare blankets.

Now that you’ve seen some great ideas for adding storage to your deck or patio, it’s time to get started! Whether you want something simple like a pegboard and hooks, or something more decorative like a potting bench with shelves (or both!), there are so many possibilities out there. You don’t need much space at all to make these changes happen—just some creativity and hard work.
