Our Verdict on the Keter Eden Storage Box
Clearly from the buyer reviews, it is clear to see that overall, they seem to like the product.
We think that at the £99 price point this is good enough value for money, but we recommend shopping around as you can find this one cheaper than paying the full RRP.
The 11% of complaints is higher than we like to see, and those are a mixture of difficult assembly, and buyers struggling to get this to click together.
That sounds like they have got a poor unit from the factory, and personally I would be returning it, if that happened to me.
Overall buyers believe this bench to be good value for money, and it is certainly handy for storing some items. It can hold two adults easily and I do like the fact that it is easy to keep clean.
Tips Before Buying the Keter Keter Eden Bench Outdoor Storage Box
As I mentioned earlier you can buy the cushion for this, and we have shown that to the left. I have shown here the blue pin striped style but it is available in a wide range of colours.
It is part of the Gardenista Gold Collection in case you are looking for it in another store. It measures 128 x 50 cm and is 5 cm thick, so enough to allow you to have a comfortable seat.
It might also be worthwhile investing in a cover which costs around £5-10.
I would strongly recommend having 2 people doing it, as it makes the entire assembly process a great deal easier. The instructions are easy enough to follow. Just be aware though that if the pieces don't easily click together, then get in touch with the buyer and get it replaced.
