The cabinet is essentially maintenance free, which makes it a really useful part of your garden storage set up.

This utility cabinet is one of the best, low cost ways to give your garden or even home that little bit extra storage space. Due to the impressive design this is something that would not only fit in a garden or a shed, but it would actually look good inside the home as well, perhaps to keep the kids toys tidy or even as somewhere to hide a few of your pricy collectables.

Let's Take a Closer Look...
Storage Cabinet Type And Roof Size
The amount of possibilities with that the 2’2 x 1’6 Chaselink Small Utility Cabinet offers you really is quite incredible. It would work very well as an extra place to store a few things that you do not want cluttering up your shed. Actually its design is nice enough that this would actually be something that we are sure some people would be fine having inside their house in a utility room. No matter what you need this extra little bit of storage for, we are sure this is going to provide you with a long lasting and low cost way to take care of it. The size of this is compact so it is going to easily fit in anywhere. At 2 feet 2 inches wide and 1 foot 6 inches deep, this is a storage cabinet that is going to be able to find a home anywhere. At 3 feet 3 inches high it does allow you to stack quite a few different things inside.
The top of the utility cabinet is solid and if you do have this standing outside at the mercy of the elements the rain is just going to bounce right off it. No water is getting inside and due to the UV protection that the moulded roof has, the lovely brown colouring is not going to fade over time either. Also it may not be an advertised feature, but the top of this would make for one awesome place to put your drink when you are cutting the grass or just hanging around outside.
Cladding, Frame And Floor
The walls of the cabinet are very impressive and to be honest far stronger than we thought that they would be at this price point. They are made with heavy duty plastic that is designed to be long lasting and take things getting thrown in it over the years. We love how this is UV protected so that white plastic will not develop cracks or even start to fade and go an ugly colour as the years go by.
No framing is inside of here, but that is because of the way this is put together. The structure slots together and it forms a very tight bond so that there is no need for a frame. Storage shelves are included and we feel that these actually could help with the robustness of the unit.
Like the top of the utility cabinet, the flooring is made with moulded plastic. This is surprisingly strong stuff and it is done is the same kind of style as the top which greatly enhances the overall look. Rather than sit right on the floor there are legs on the unit which raise it up a little bit. This means that even if you plan on placing this on grass the bottom of the unit does not have to touch the ground.
Treatment Requirement And Warranty
We are pleased to tell you that this is one of the most low maintenance storage units we have ever seen. There is no need to paint the plastic walls or anything like that. As a matter of fact if you do not mind football marks, kids hand prints or just some mud that gets thrown at it when you cut the grass, you do not actually have to even clean it as this will not affect it at all. Still if you do want to give it a clean this is as easy as getting a bucket of water and a sponge and will take five minutes at the most.
The 2’2 x 1’6 Chaselink Small Utility Cabinet is covered by a one year manufacturer’s guarantee which will cover you just in case there is an issue with the materials, but we do not foresee there being any kind of problems with this.
Considering the compact size of this unit, we are very surprised that they have put a set of double doors on here. Do not get us wrong we are happy they did, but it was quite the surprise. These double doors when open give you pretty much the whole 2 feet 2 inches of width that the unit has looking right at you. This is going to make storing things very easy and the fact that the doors are kept in place with strong hinges mean that the doors are also very robust.
Security And Privacy
This is one very solid utility cabinet that is going to do an amazing job keeping your tools or even a bunch of the kids toys safe from the rain. When closed the door does make this one very solid unit and adding a padlock to those door handles would be very easy to do and also make it a certainty that no one is getting in here.
There are no clear panels or even windows to let people see inside so no matter what kind of cool and interesting items you are storing in here, no one is going to be able to see them. Unless the kids leave both doors open of course.
Customisation Options And Extras
While you cannot change the look of the outside of the unit the two shelves which come with this can be placed in different areas. This is great if you have some larger things as you can have a smaller area at the top of the bottom and then a larger area or of course you could decide to do away with the shelves altogether and just throw things in, close the doors and pray they do not spill out onto you when you open the doors.
There are no available extras with this as the shelves are actually included with the price which we must say is fantastic. The only thing to consider is a padlock and even then this is something worth thinking about if you have things that are expensive inside of here.
So, How Does It All Stack Up?
We are very impressed with the high quality of this utility cabinet. Moulded plastic may not sound strong, but we can assure you this is one very well made and strong storage unit.
Longevity of Materials8.5/10
This is going to be something that you get many years of use out of. No matter where you are using this it is going to last for a very long time.
