Rubbermaid Horizontal Storage Shed Review

Rubbermaid Outdoor Horizontal Storage Shed
Rubbermaid Horizontal Storage Box

The Rubbermaid Horizontal Storage Shed is a versatile storage option for both indoors and out, particularly if you don’t need a large storage box. It is a 32 cubic ft capacity shed made from high-density polyethylene which won’t chip, crack or peel. There are molded grooves provided for one shelf if you need to organize lots of little things, although the shelf is not provided.

It comes with a tough durable floor and also has a hinged roof design with prop bar. This provides easy accessibility to contents inside and lockable doors on the front (lock not included) ensure your things inside stay safe. It is made from interlocking panels which ensures assembly is very quick and easy. You will need to have a rubber mallet on hand to assist with locking the panels into place.

Features of the Rubbermaid Horizontal Shed

  • Horizontal storage box for indoor/outdoor use
  • 2 models – 18 or 32 cubic feet of storage space
  • Grid floor helps keep long handled tools in place
  • Rugged high-density polyethylene construction won’t chip, crack or peel
  • Includes interlocking resin panels and lockable doors (locks not included)

There are many instances when a large shed is not appropriate and having enough room for one can sometimes be an issue. This little Rubbermaid storage box solves that problem and is ideal for storing cushions and BBQ equipment. Many customers also use it to store trash cans/bags in as well because it effectively deters inquisitive raccoons and such from exploring where they shouldn’t. One customer has suggested that when assembling, use dish soap to moisten the joints and you will find the pieces slide together better. This makes construction even easier. The shed is attractive enough to use inside the house, or on a patio.


  • Versatile and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use
  • Can assist in preventing trash being strewn about your yard by animals
  • Can save you money by not needing to replace outdoor cushions when they are constantly drenched in rainstorms.
