Bottom Line
Pros
Cons

A porch swing can quickly become one of your favorite spots to relax at home. A porch swing is a bench with chains attached, and is usually designed to hang from the ceiling of a covered porch. These swings come in many different materials. The best width will depend on how much space your porch affords. Wood is a sturdy, beautiful and long-lasting option; however, there are nice swings on the market in other materials, such as plastics or metal. When looking for a porch swing consider the height of the back of the swing. The shape of the bench may be either ergonomically curved for comfort, or a basic flat surface. Also keep in mind the length and strength of the chains designed to hold the swing – an important consideration depending on how much weight will sit on it.
