Because it is durable for any type of weather, the box can be used on the patio or back yard, and even be used in the laundry room and keep dirty or clean clothes inside and serve as a seat while waiting for the machine.

The plastic material and the secure lid keep the inside from corrosion. The box keeps items inside dry and safe. When the seat is put outdoors, the contemporary design makes a good addition to patio furniture and a good storage space for gardening supplies. Guests will not know that it is a product used for storage.

This is a box that can withstand heat; the plastic is high quality and will not melt or become brittle during the summer months.

Disadvantages

The cover of the box is not secure and leaves a gap between the cover and the box. This is a problem because spiders and other small insects can crawl into the box and ruin stored fabric or pillows. The lid allows the rain to enter the box and get the stored items wet.

Because of this defect in the cover, the box has to be taken indoors when raining. There is a problem with the latch of the box as it is not put in place in a stable manner. The screws tend to be deformed and easily crack when assembling it.

Verdict

The product is a multi-purpose product that enables you to store items and, at the same time, use the box as extra seating for guests. The structure is made of high-quality plastic that is resistant to rust and corrosion.

The product can be used indoors and outdoors, which is convenient for those who want to use the box as storage for gardening tools. The Suncast Resin Wicker Storage Seat is reasonably priced and will last for a very long time. The box will not melt or become brittle when placed under the sun.

However, there is an issue with the latch of the box that doesn’t securely close. The space between the lid and the box attracts insects and rainwater.
