Our Verdict on the Keter Store It Out Midi Outdoor Shed
Clearly from the buyer reviews, this is a smaller storage shed that is pretty versatile and has been used for many different storage solutions.
Popular uses are for garden tools and mowers. After that the use for this shed varies a lot from BBQ gear, to patio cushions, to kid's toys and just about anything else you can think of.
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
At the end of the day it is just a sturdy plastic box with a lid and two doors. However it does keep your things dry, and the ventilation ensures that your items don't get damp or covered in mould.
It is a good solution for gardening tools, and the many things we seem to gather up around the garden and patios. I liked the fact that it weathers well.
Quite often these can get more abuse than is ideal. They are not really made for sitting on, and many buyers said that kids tend to swing on the doors if they are left open.
If the shed is well positioned and cared for then it does last a long time.
Tips Before Buying the Keter Midi
If you are buying this to store wheelie bins, then check the actual sizes of your bins first. Some areas in the UK use 120 litre bins, some use 180 litres and some use 240 litre bins.
This model can hold the 120 litre size. You will need the Keter Maxi for the larger wheelie bins.
This is not hard to assemble, but I would strongly recommend having 2 people doing it, as it makes the entire assembly process a great deal easier. Also make sure that the ground is level where you are going to locate it. Avoid slopes as it will make the doors not close properly.
Quite a few buyers recommended using a Stanley knife to trim some of the lock mouldings as that helped make a better and neater joint in the plastic.
