How to choose a perfect canopy swing bed to your garden

Canopy swing beds have many purposes, whether it is to reflect or have a casual conversation with friends, a suspended canopy bed seems to have gained the love of many homeowners.

Here is a list of things to think about when choosing a canopy swing outdoor bed:

  1. Comfort and safety – like other furniture, the best way to know if the swing is comfortable is to sit on it and test it. Keep in mind that you will perhaps be sitting or laying on it for longer periods of time, so you will want to make sure that it is not hard on your back or uncomfortable to sit in. With comfort, comes safety as well. You will want to be able to relax without worrying if the chains or the support can carry your weight. You will have the opportunity to ask the seller of the weight capacity of the swing, this is important since you will not want to overburden it, which might cause it to break.

  2. Size – this is not just about the size of the swing, but also the size of the place you will want to set it up. You will most certainly want space for the canopy bed to be able to move back and forth. It does not have to be a big space, but it should be fitting enough for the swing to move lightly.
  3. Material – since you will use this canopy swing bed in an outdoor setting, it is important to know which materials are the best for a specific climate. You cannot just get an aluminum swing bed, because you heard good reviews from someone who lives in a colder climate that you do. You will want to be sure that you choose a durable material that is specifically meant to suit certain weather. The most common materials for canopy swing beds are natural wood, metal, fabric, synthetic resin, and wicker. Natural wood (like teak and cedar), are the best when it comes to the style and it will blend with almost all design types. Due to its high oil content, teak is resistant to mold, moisture, rot, and insects. It does not need to be maintained often, since if left untreated the color will turn from honey gold to silvery gray.
