Buy Custom-Size Porch Swings & Bed Swings

Porch Swing with Cushion & Pillows

Hanging Design & Cupholders Options

To make the best use of your outdoor space, we have decided to allow you to customize your porch with many great functional options. Currently, you can get any Georgia Swings brand porch swing with either chain or rope design hanging options. In addition, while the Ellijay and the Canton swings come with built-in cupholders, you are now able to add the cupholder option to the Decatur porch swing right from the product page. This option was only made available to in-store shoppers, but now anyone who purchases the Decatur porch swing online will be able to add built-in cupholders to their swing.

Stain & Urethane Finish Options

You may select from one of our 12 hand-picked finish options to beautify your wooden swing. Wood finishes include semi-transparent stains, solid stains, clear urethane, and unfinished. However, if you select unfinished, we recommend that you add a wood protectant. The solid stains cover the wood in the same manner that paint does. In comparison, semi-transparent stains allow the natural wood grain to show while tinting the wood to your desired preference. Finally, spar urethane provides moisture and UV protection while showing natural color and wood grain.

Custom-Size Porch Swings

Our standard porch swings range from 4 to 7 feet in total length. You may also order any custom-size porch swings or bed swings. The total length is measured from the outside armrest. Our porch swings also have seat depth options that allow our clients to select either 18″ or 20″ seat depth. However, the Decatur porch swing offers three size options of 18″, 20″, and 24″ seat depth.

Cedar Swings Vs. Kiln Dried Treated Pine Swings

White Porch Swing in Gazebo

When picking out the perfect material for your outdoor swings, Georgia Swings makes it easy to select the best type of wood. We do this by offering only wood that is suited for outdoor use as a starting point. Since swings are considered outdoor furniture, we see no point in providing customers with swings that can’t withstand outdoor elements.

Picking out the material for swings isn’t something you should take lightly. You want to ensure that you pick out materials that will stand the test of time for years to come. Whether you’re considering western red cedar swings, kiln-dried pine swings, or other types of wood for your swing, it’s essential to know the benefits of each kind of wood.

Western Red Cedar Swings

One of the most significant benefits of western red cedar wood is its ability to resist moisture, rot, decay, and most pests. Western red cedar is naturally beautiful due to its rich, crisp tonal properties.

Unfinished Western Red Cedar

Did you know that when you buy western red cedar swings, you’re contributing to the environment? Western red cedar comes from the most sustainable, managed forests in the entire world. We particularly love western red cedar porch swings for their natural beauty and durability.

Kiln Dried Treated Pine Swings

Kiln-dried treated offers some of the same benefits as cedar. It has been kiln-dried to improve the stability of the wood and treated for additional protection against pests and decay.

What Are The Best Bed Swings For Outdoor Use?

The Roswell Outdoor Porch Swing Bed

With the summer months just around the corner and those long hot days edging closer, many homeowners will now be thinking about adding a bed swing to their property. Whether it’s taking an afternoon nap, relaxing with your family, or chatting with friends, a bed swing is a fantastic addition to any home.

However, with so many options available, finding the best outdoor bed swing for your home can be a challenge, and you need to ensure you are opting for the right materials. To help you, we have taken a closer look at three key factors to consider:

Materials

Your bed swing will likely be facing regular exposure to moisture and will be spending long periods of time in sunlight. This means the material used in the construction of your bed is essential, and Western Red Cedar not only looks fantastic, but it is also one of the best materials. Properly sealed and cared for, this wood will be able to last for many years. 

Hardware

Another important consideration when finding the best bed swings for outdoor use is the hardware used in the construction. There are many options available, but stainless and galvanized steel offer the most durability and protection against the elements.

Furnishings

The other key consideration when searching for the best bed swings for outdoor use is the furnishings. These will face constant exposure to the elements, so opting for acrylic cushions and pillows will ensure that they remain to look fantastic and in the best condition possible for a long time.

Looking for the best bed swings for outdoor use?

If you seek the best outdoor bed swings for your home, then Georgia Swings is here to help you. Specializing in handcrafted wooden porch and bed swings, we guarantee the highest quality products, and we pride ourselves on our friendly and approachable service.

Luxurious Cedar Bed Swings

Outdoor hanging bed swing

Bed Swings adds resort-style leisure to residential outdoor living areas.

If you’re looking for a way to make your porch more comfortable and more stylish, you have a few options. Some regular chairs and benches can be comfortable, but you often lack the stylish appeal you might be looking for. A handmade cedar bed swing may be the missing link.

There are porch swings and porch bed swings, both of which look fantastic but serve different comfort purposes. When deciding between a porch swing and a bed swing for your porch, you should think about the look you’re going for as well as the purpose you want the bench for.

While we offer both of these two products, we want to make sure to help you get exactly what you’re looking for. Taking the time to research the different products and styles available will help you make the perfect choice for your newly remodeled porch.

Porch Swings vs. Bed Swings

You’re probably familiar with porch swings; they are more common and seen in homes all over the country. These swings are often designed for those who have a little bit less space available on the porch, though some are larger than others. The bench on a porch swing is normally designed to fit two or three people comfortably sitting. If you’ve ever pictured a comfortable place to sit down and read a book, a porch swing likely comes to mind.

A bed swing, on the other hand, is generally significantly bigger than your average porch swing. Cedar bed swings are luxurious ways to find the ultimate relaxation; they are designed to fit at minimum a crib or twin-sized mattress, and some are larger and can accommodate more people. These beds provide a gentle sway that is extremely relaxing and makes the user feel like they are floating on a cloud.

Our cedar bed swings come with a variety of different features; some have cup holders, some have wide armrests to hold your phones, tablets, or drinks, and others have high backrests so you can choose to sit or lay down. Whatever kind of bed swing you’re looking for, it can be customized for you and your family.

Which is Right for Me?

To decide between a porch swing and a bed swing, you’ll need to think about a couple of factors. First of all, a porch swing can be placed in locations with less space than is required for a bed swing, so if you’re limited on space, you might choose a porch swing.

If you have space and looking for a comfortable place to sit or lay down, you should definitely consider looking at the available bed swings. With tons of different fabrics, finishes, and hanging kits to choose from, you’re bound to find exactly the look you want for your porch.

Final Thoughts

Whether you’re looking for something stylish or comfortable, you can’t go wrong with a porch swing or a cedar bed swing. When deciding between the two, think about what you’ll use your swing for as well as the look you’re going for. Your porch is going to look fantastic!
