Porch Swings - Relaxation and Style

The rope swings for your porch are designed for relaxing with a gentle rocking motion. Also great for naps, reading a book, and for watching the great outdoors from the comfort of your home. With a rope swing on your porch, you can literally just "hang out". It can also become the most romantic place in your home.

Types available for your porch include the swing chair, hanging chair, hanging swing, rope swing, rope chair, and hammock. Porch swings are available in many styles and materials including cedar, teak, wrought-iron and all-weather resin wicker. Pawleys Island is a famous style of porch rope swing, after its origin in Pawleys Island, South Carolina.

Sizes and styles spanning a variety: single-person, two-person, 3-person. headrest, foot-on-floor, foot dangling. Headrest/ footrest and pillow accompaniment, style and coloration can be considered. Colors such as camouflage beige, forest green, natural beige, or burgundy color are typical. Curved wood designs can bring elegance and charm to an outdoor setting.

About hammocks: Hand-woven hammocks with quality nylon braid are best. Hardwood spreaders of oak or maple with rot, mildew, and UV stain treatment are also important to their use and longevity. They can be used in large or small spaces, in favorite spots including in the garden, at the cottage, on the porch and even indoors. A continuous three-ply weave is recognized as providing the most comfort.

Care and maintenance tips: remove a swing in the colder months, and it will last you longer. All you need to hang your porch swing is a solid, strong support in your favorite spot on your porch, patio or deck. Be sure to test the location and mounting for your swing thoroughly. If you don't have a safe place to hang your porch swing, have a look at the many styles of free-standing swings available to place on a deck or lawn. Use caution when considering maximum supported weight, especially as the swing gets older.
