Stylish storage solutions for all the paraphernalia that goes with an outdoor lifestyle

 

1. Hide away

A weatherproof garden bench is a must have. This Eden bench from Keter is made from durable plastic resin and keeps its contents dry and well ventilated; it’s even lockable. The seat of the bench lifts up to provide generous storage space for cushions, towels, toys and more, and its good design provides comfortable seating at the same time.

2. Hold all

This console table is not only a good-looking addition to the veranda; it’s also the perfect place to keep baskets for storing towels in summer and blankets in winter. In addition, the drawers hold essentials such as sun cream, mosquito repellent, matches and the like.

3. Chill out

No need to keep running back into your kitchen for an iced beer with this idea – a small fridge stored in an elegant painted cupboard on your patio. The cupboard by Décor Workshop was custom-made for this very tight corner and also contains shelves for glasses and bottles; cushions are stored in the bottom compartment.

4. Summer weave

Unless you have a completely weather-protected patio, furnishings can get badly damaged by the elements. As this home has an open terrace with minimal protection, the owner had a huge cane basket custom-made by the Institute for the Blind in which to store patio cushions when not in use. You can find similar baskets at the Cape Town Society for the Blind.
