The first hanging porch swing I ever remember was the one my Grandparents had on their front porch. It was the classic swing. I think it was probably made out of cedar or redwood and hung from chains that were attached to the porch rafters. I guess what makes the swing memorable for me are the experiences I remember having there with loved ones. Maybe that is the allure that many have for porch swings. There is just something about them that reminds us of good times. Or maybe it is the promise of good times to come that makes a hanging porch swing such a fixture in many of our lives. Regardless, there is a swing out there to satisfy everyone's preference.
A few weeks ago I decided that I wanted to get a hanging porch swing. I started looking around and found out that there are some wonderful options. For those who prefer to avoid having any maintenance tasks that are often associated with wooden products, there are poly resin swings. These are not as attractive, in my opinion, but they are certainly functional and do not require any sanding or staining. For those who prefer a more rustic approach, cedar and teak are very popular choices. These don't really have to be sanded or restrained unless you wanted to. Another option is the bulkier looking, but also very popular, log style swings. These certainly have their place, but just not on my porch. I prefer a smaller looking wooden swing. If I were looking for a hanging porch swing for a mountain cabin or something I would probably like the log style more.
One of my favorite swings, that is both attractive and popular, is the hanging porch swing by Old Adirondack. This swing is classic in design and yet has a touch of rustic flair. Even though it is made out of wood, the seat is actually contoured so the swing is more comfortable. Like all natural cedar wood, when left outdoors it gets a nice weathered silver gray finish. This usually takes about a year or so in most climates. Classic, just my style.
For the more casual souls out there, a hanging porch swings that looks more like a hammock or a lounger might be just the thing. One particular company that makes swings like this is the Outbackchair Company. Their Urban Balance Expanse swing, for example, comes in some bold colors: teal (ocean), orange (mandarin) or green (kiwi). This versatile and durable swing allows for some serious relaxation, and looks pretty cool too. It is made with aluminum frames that are epoxy coated. The arms are wicker so they can withstand weather without missing a beat. Another hanging porch swing that the Outbackchair company makes is the Outback double basket weave lounger. This also comes in various colors: burgundy, sand, green, and navy. Up to 500 pounds of weight are comfortably supported and the materials are UV treated. The fabric is a waterproof 600 x600 denier polyester.
Everyone has their preferences for what they like in a hanging porch swing. Whether you go for the classic look of a wooden swing, like the modern poly resin swings, or prefer a fabric style swing, you are in luck. There is a hanging porch swing for everyone.
