Best Plastic Storage Boxes With Lids for Homes Under $25

Updated on November 15, 2014

Plastic Storage Boxes with Lids

Storage boxes can be made from a variety of materials. Plastic is very common but others include cardboard, wood, metal or alternative and more decorative materials such as wicker. Plastic has a number of advantages such as being easier to make either partially or fully transparent; transparent boxes allow the contents to be seen without having to open the box. Plastic also tends to be easier to clean than absorbent materials such as cardboard and wood and can be lighter than metal.

The lid of the box helps protect the contents and keep them free of dust and dirt; some can even be water or airtight, further protecting the contents which is especially useful for delicate items or food. The advantage of using storage boxes with lids is that they can allow otherwise difficult to use or hard to access spaces such as underneath the bed to be more fully utilised by using boxes that fit underneath the bed. Some lidded storage boxes are often designed to be easily stacked on top of each other, again meaning that the space is utilised as efficiently as possible

Storage boxes can vary in strength and size from fairly light weight and small boxes designed for the storage of small items to much larger and more heavy duty boxes that can take larger, heavier or bulkier items. Make sure to choose both the correct size and the correct strength for your needs. Food and small item boxes will usually be smaller and food containers should be airtight. Under bed storage boxes must fit under the bed in question. Boxes that are going to be frequently moved whilst containing heavy items should be sturdy.
