5. Ensure storageTo avoid sitting down on wet cushions, keep a storage trunk to toss in cushions when not in use and to avoid collecting moisture. A storage trunk would also come in handy to store blankets, candle lights, and so on, without fear of spiders or mildew getting inside. Since your trunk will be under shelter, you don’t need to worry too much about it being rain-proof. But it might be useful to know that wood types like cedar and teak withstand high-humidity conditions and are also pest-proof, making them perfect for outdoor areas.
