Life moves fast these days. We are constantly in a rush. And, creating a peaceful, relaxing environment at home is essential for a fast paced lifestyle (especially around this time of the holiday season). Adding one of’s outdoor swings to your porch or yard is the perfect solution to unwinding from life’s daily grind. Here are our top three tips for purchasing an outdoor swing to fit your personality and taste:

Pick a material YOU like
Wood or plastic? The variety of life isn’t ignorant to porch swings. It’s the very opposite – and that’s good news for you! has 11 different kinds of materials to choose from ranging from recycled plastic in many beautiful colors to our popular red cedar swing. Think about the style you want to portray. Do you want a classic or modern style swing?

Consider the weather
If you are placing the swing outside, the material you choose should depend on the climate. If you are in an area that gets a lot of snow or rain, a plastic swing works best.

It has the ability to withstand the harshest climates without chipping or warping!

Add the ultimate comfort zone: a Hammock
