Low Hanging Porch Swing

You don’t have to always hang your porch swings so high. This porch swing hangs very low to the deck and it looks so comfortable.

Try a Low Hanging Porch Bed

Here’s another low-hanging porch swing — these qualify more as porch “beds” but they are stunning nonetheless.

Go Backless

Go backless for something unique and different. A few bolster pillows on the side are all that this attractive porch swing needs.

It Doesn’t Have to Be a Swing

Porch swings don’t just have to be bench-style. A hanging egg chair is great for a solo seat and for those that like to relax in their very own chair.

Coastal Beach Vibes

A porch swing with cupholders is not only genius it’s downright practical. This coastal beach vibe swing is great for those that want a nautical feel to their porch with practicality.

Bring the Indoors Out

It’s nice to bring the indoors out. Creating a space on your porch that feels like a living room is a great way to be able to enjoy your porch in the summertime.

Simple Statement

Simple and natural look great, too! Porch swings don’t always need to be overdone. A simple wicker porch swing can make quite the statement on its own.

Decked Out For Fall

Don’t think that you have to take your porch swing down come fall. Leave it up and enjoy the fall crisp air out on your porch in the morning. Plus, it will look so great all decked out with pumpkins and fall mums.

Seeing Double

Seeing double is not always a bad thing! Why have just one porch swing when you could have two?

Add a Chandelier

Add in some statement lighting. Make a dramatic effect with an outdoor chandelier — something that really says “you want to sit here”.

Add in a Conversational Set

Conversational sets are great to pair with a porch swing. Not only will your porch be set up for comfort, but it is also inviting for people to come and sit and talk for a while.
