With its classic charm, the porch swing is a dream for every home. The garden swing is the ideal place where you can enjoy the summer breeze or a good book. This gorgeous piece of furniture would be a great hit for your kids. When choosing the porch swing for garden and patio you have to consider a few things – the size, materials, stability and, of course, the best place. In general there are two types of swings.
Porch swing with steel chains
One of the traditional ways of installing the porch swing is the hanging. Hooks are screwed to the roof of the porch, so that the swing can hang on steel chains. The swing usually consists of a wide garden bench that can accommodate more than two people. A classic swing for hanging is usually made of wood. Decide on a moisture and resistant to decay wood, such as cedar. You can also choose a hanging swing made of wicker or rattan for a tropical look. Do not forget to add comfortable seating cushions.
Porch swing for the garden with removable roof
If your porch roof can not support the weight of a swing, you are not necessarily out of luck. The “standing” porch swings should not be screwed or secured to another surface because they come as free-standing structures with a frame. As a result, you can easily assemble it in the garden or in the patio. This garden swing has a rocking bench, so that several people can enjoy at the same time. You can choose a sunroof made of colored fabric and some decorative pillows, so that the swing gets a colorful look. This garden swing is very mobile, so you can put it under a pergola or a gazebo to enjoy a beautiful view.
