Places To Buy Porch Swings

Where To Buy Porch Swings

When shopping for porch swings, there are many outlets available.  With the boom of the world wide web, many patio swings today are being bought on the internet.  However, there are still physical places available where you can see the product before you buy it.  Here’s a few places to choose from:


• Furniture Stores   While there are a few retailers that carry outdoor furniture, most furniture stores only carry indoor furnishings.

• Hardware Stores   Many of today’s hardware stores carry outdoor furniture, in addition to hardware supplies.

• Independent Crafters   In rural areas, it is not uncommon to find woodcraftsmen who still make porch swings. These crafters may sell their products along the side of the road, or in their front yards. The best way to locate a local porch swing builder is to simply “ask the locals”.

• Arts & Crafts Shows   Scattered throughout the country are trade shows that feature independent artists, such as woodworkers. You are almost guaranteed to find outdoor furniture makers at these events, including handmade patio swings.

• Online Retailers   The invention of the internet has opened the doors for just about every type of commerce available, including outdoor furniture. There are literally hundreds of retailers on the web that sell porch swings. Many are mass-produced, but a few companies still sell handcrafted patio swings like Cypress Moon!

• Previous Owners   Sometimes when you’re traveling down the road you will see items in people’s front yards for sale. If you’re lucky, you might find a porch swing. However, these situations are very few, because once you buy a porch swing, you’ll never want to be without one again! 

How To Install A Porch Swing

How To Hang A Porch Swing From Ceiling

When hanging porch swings, make sure that the support beam or joists in your ceiling will support the weight of the porch swing and its occupants. If you’re unsure of your ceiling’s strength, have an experienced carpenter check it out. Once you’re sure, drill pilot holes to prevent wood splitting, screw eye-bolts or large hooks into an overhead support beam, and hang your chains.

Leave a minimum of 2.5 feet behind the swing for ample swinging room. Three feet or more is even better. Position the swing chains an inch or two outside the swing length to efficiently disperse the weight. For example, when hanging a 5-foot swing, position the ceiling chain hooks about 5 feet 2 inches to 5 feet 4 inches apart.
If you’re using our comfort springs for extra bounce and smooth swinging, they hang (either side up) between the hanging hooks and the swing chains.

How To Hang A Porch Swing From A Tree Limb

Wimpy tree limbs won’t support a porch swing. Choose a strong, sturdy limb when hanging your swing. Protect the limb from abrasion by padding the hanging chains with a rubber hose. Then fasten the chains around the limb with a heavy, rust-resistant bolt, remembering to add an inch or two to the swing length when positioning the chains. Keep your tree happy: never use hooks to attach a chain directly to a tree limb.

How to hang a porch swing from an A-Frame

If you discover that your ceiling can’t sustain the weight of your patio swing and you don’t have a sturdy tree limb to hang it from, you might try a free-standing A-frame swing package. They come with a stand for convenient placement anywhere on the lawn, in the garden, or on a large porch or patio surface.
