Outdoor Seating & Storage Solutions from Keter :: Eden Garden Bench Box {Review}

 I received complimentary product for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own.

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.

The Eden Garden Bench features absolutely gorgeous styling and seats two adults very comfortably. Buddy can even fit on it with us too! This sturdy bench measures 54.6" by 23.4" and is 33" high. The all-weather plastic resin will not rust, dent, or peel, making this another fantastic maintenance-free product from Keter. If you choose to put your Eden Garden Bench outside, it's UV-resistant to prevent fading and whitening too. This bench is lockable with the additional (included) parts.

Whether it's seat cushions or patio supplies, the Eden Garden Bench stores whatever you need out of sight. We had several items in our Borneo Deck Box that we moved to this one since I felt they fit better. Our Borneo now holds ALL the outdoor toys we have!

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!

I really want one of these. I love the dual functionality. That's not a bad price either! Looks like you can fit quite a few things in there.

I've always wanted an outdoor bench that would stand up to the weather, be durable, and also be functional-this bench definitely fits all 3 categories. I love the storage, this is perfect for seasonal items.
