Best Wooden Porch Swings: View our Top 20 for your Outdoor Sanctuary

A porch swing is a bundle of happiness that never fails to remind you of a beautiful childhood memory spent with loved ones. Takes you back to the many summers spent with friends swinging, with the gentle breeze fanning your cheeks.

Kick back a little harder, and the laughter gets a little louder. It brings out the child in you. They say a swing is not just a piece of furniture, it's a state of mind. The comfortable lounging, the gentle motion of swinging back and forth, and the warmth it provides when the joy of nostalgia steps in, is priceless.

The desire to retain a delightful experience breathes in the search for the perfect porch swing. Below is a list of wooden bench swings that you might consider hanging in your porch, or any preferred spot in your outdoor spaces.

The Charming Bench Company wooden Porch Swing selection comes in a few variations: Cedar, Teak, Cypress, Pine (treated), Hickory, and Oak.

Cedar or Western Red Cedar. Natural hardwood is resistant to rot, decay, and insects. When used, it will help your swing last longer and require less maintenance over its lifetime. Unlike many other kinds of wood, red cedar has a natural beauty with its crisp, luxurious tonal properties. Cedar wood furniture will last both indoors and outdoors.

Teak. This natural hardwood is eco-friendly due to its hardness and resilience. It is naturally resistant to water, mildew, fungus, and most wood-eating insects. Teak is extremely dense, durable, and has a high oil & wax content. It's a low maintenance wood. No need for preservatives, paint, or varnish, its natural oils form a barrier against potential harmful elements.

Cypress wood tends to be a light, yellowish-brown color. It has straight grains with a medium texture. Cypress is naturally rot-resistant, and a natural insect repellent. It is also referred to as "Eternal Wood" which means it will last and age with you.

Pinewood. It is generally more lightweight than the others. This wood is excellent if you desire a more rustic look. It accepts paint and stain very well. It ages well, and it resists shrinking and swelling over time. Pine must be sealed when outdoors. 

Hickory. It stands out due to its unique combination of strength, hardness, and toughness that cannot be found in any other species. It is considered an extremely durable wood, thought to be able to withstand nearly anything. Hickory is the second hardest hardwood species in North America.

Oak. It is highly durable, easy to work with, and looks stunning stained or with a clear, natural finish. It's also one of the most efficient woods to burn. Oakwood, prized in furniture-making, flooring, and cabinetry because of its durability, workability, and natural beauty.
