Storage seems to always be an issue when it comes time for spring cleaning or any sort of meaningful organization. There's just never enough storage area throughout the house where useful possessions can be hidden out of view. Our garage is one area that we're diligently working on cleaning up and creating more useable space (and perhaps even fit a car in too!).
With a lack of specific storage space in our garage, I was thrilled with the opportunity to work with Keter again, the world’s leading manufacturer and marketer of resin-based household and garden consumer products. Not only does our new Eden Garden Bench Box work great as a seating area to take off shoes before entering our home, but it's also stores odds and ends inside too. Our garage is part at-home gym also, so having a seating area is a must-have for Buddy to hang out and watch Dad workout in the evenings. We don't have a real mudroom, so this is the next best thing! Now I'm on the hunt for some shelving that will bring it all together to create a warm and cozy garage entry.
As our second storage box from Keter (see my Borneo Deck Box review), I have several observations to note in case you are debating which one is best for you. First, the Borneo Deck Box was easier to assemble by a long shot. There were more screws and building required with the Eden Garden Bench when compared to the mostly "clickable" Borneo. Secondly, size may be something for you to consider, depending on the purpose your storage box will serve. The Borneo boasts a 105-gallon capacity while the Eden only has a 70-gallon capacity. While both boxes are nearly identical in width, the Eden's main purpose is as a bench, and thus the seat has a lower, more normal height. This would account for the lesser capacity, but the cuter design and appeal.
The Eden Garden Bench is the perfect addition to our garage entryway! Along with seating, this box provides an decent amount of storage underneath. I couldn't be happier to have found a solution that is so stylish and matches our neutral colors too. Be sure to check out Keter for more outdoor storage solutions for your home!
