Ideas for Creating Storage Spaceon Your Patio

6359-101413-gs6359Patios are ideal for holding outdoor occasions, such as birthday parties, especially during summer. They can also be used to hold nighttime outdoor events. However, did you realize that you can also use it to store stuff that you don't use on a daily basis? Here are some of the best patio storage ideas for your home: 

Under the Deck

The space under an elevated deck can be used to securely store items that you don’t use on a daily basis such as chairs, sports equipment, and other large outdoor items.However, you may want to enclose the area to protect your items from unauthorized access.

Storage Benches

This is one of the most unique storage ideas that you can use to give your patio a new touch of elegance. They are not only attractive but also versatile as they can be used to store a wide array of items. If you decide to purchase ready-made benches, go for those that have study hinges. Also, the material used to build it should be rot and water resistant. 

Grids and Hooks

Homeowners whose patios are adjacent to a wall or wooden fence can easily add grids and hooks for hanging items. For example, you can use rubber coated hooks to store your hose and other gardening items. It is also possible to add small bungee cords for storing pool accessories if you have them.


Pegboards are commonly used in garages. Creative designers have come up with new pegboards that are designed for patios. The installation process is quite simple as you only need to install it on the walls. However, consider the weight of items that you intend to hang because the hooks can only support a specific amount of weight. 

Finally, as you purchase patio furniture, consider the space available. Ideally, there should be enough space for people to move around. And while you are busy organizing your outdoor space, let The Maids of Rhode Island, in Coventry, RI assist you with your house cleaning needs.
