Here’s another awesome porch swing circle.  This was sent in to us by a Cypress Moon customer in California.  The structure is absolutely beautiful!  I imagine they will be spending many evenings swinging around the fire pit!

This particular customer used a combination of several sizes of patio swings to make their circle.  If you are interested in constructing something like this, please feel free to contact Cypress Moon Porch Swings!  We offer discounts on bulk orders.  Thank you so much for supporting American businesses!

Bed Swing

Bed Swings are extremely popular right now.  You can’t open an interior design magazine and not see one!  Basically, Bed Swings (or Swing Beds) are giant porch swings that are large enough for an adult to lay on, not just sit in.  Many people hang them inside their homes and designers love to decorate them with cushions and pillows.  The internet is full of photos demonstrating the many ways to decorate a Swing Bed.

Cypress Moon has sold Bed Swings for many years to interior designers and homeowners all over the country.  These swings are big enough to accommodate a twin-size mattress!  Our Swing Beds are handmade from beautiful cypress and are available in eight colors!  Visit our website to see more photos of our Swing Bed!

How To Build A Porch Swing

Here’s a great video showing you the step-by-step process of building a porch swing.  If you have the time and resources, you can make one yourself.  It will be something you can be proud of for years to come.  We suggest using a durable wood like cypress instead of pine.  However, if you don’t want to go that route, you can always by a swing that is pre-built from us, Cypress Moon Porch Swings!

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.
