Outdoor Cushion Storage Ideas
This “shed” is beautiful, but I wouldn’t want to store my patio cushions in it as I would be very concerned about mice, squires and other rodents getting in and nesting in the cushions (it has happened to us before and what a mess it was to clean up in the spring !!)
Resin Deck Boxes for Cushion Storage
Some folks may use resin deck boxes to store towels or pool toys, but when the fall comes and it’s time to close up the pool, many people use them to store their patio cushions.
Toys are then moved to the shed or the basement 🙂
They are designed to keep the contents dry from rain and snow and the customer reviews that I have read have all agreed that it does keep items from getting wet.
No need to worry about mice either as there are no holes for them to climb in through.
Plastic Deck Boxes for Storage
If you are looking for a basic, but durable plastic storage box for the deck or patio, here are some of the top rated brands to consider.
You want to make sure that you have a large enough box to hold the cushions as the cushions are bulky in size.

DIY Cushion Storage
You could always build your own storage unit.
Here is an idea that I found. They built a storage section for their cushion in their basement so that they could tuck them out of the way for the winter months.
You can read their instructions here if you want to build the same type of thing.
Patio Outdoor Cushion Storage Bags
If you would prefer something portable, you might want to consider patio cushion storage bags. These bags are specifically designed for patio cushions. You can pack them up then move them to the shed or basement all at one instead of doing multiple trips with arm loads of cushions.
These storage bags water resistant, though it is recommended that you purchase one that has the extra water protection base at the bottom in case a puddle of water forms and it sits for a few days.
