Things To Consider When Buying a Bench

There are many things to consider when buying a bench, swing bed, or any outdoor furniture set for your yard or lawn. Planning will help ensure you find the right piece of furniture that looks great and is also comfortable and, most importantly, something that you and your family will enjoy for a very long time. In this post, we will cover a few of the main things for discussion. 

Do you have enough room?

You would think this is an easy one, and it's easy to underestimate the amount of room you'll need for a bench, particularly a swing bed or porch swing. It's a good idea to ensure you have at least 5 feet of space surrounding a swing bed to allow them to move freely and maximize their full use. Bench swings can do with a little bit less, with just around 3 - 4 feet of bounding area for the most fun.

Will the bench or bed swings be exposed to the weather?

Suppose the spot you've chosen for your bench is exposed to weather elements and potentially harsh environmental conditions. In that case, it's a good idea to opt for a more durable material than others. An excellent example of this is the synthetic wood that one of our leading suppliers, A & L Furniture, offers. As faux lumber looks and feels like real wood, this material will ensure your bench's longevity, whether it's exposed to the sun, rain, or even snow.

How do I assemble the bench when it arrives?

Luckily this is a relatively easy one. All of our benches come with easy-to-follow assembly instructions, and in case you were stuck, you can get in touch with us, and we will be more than happy to assist you.

In the fact that you have purchased a swing bed or porch swing, we have published a detailed walk-through on How to Hang a Porch Swing/Bed. It should be all you need to be on your way to creating a serene and relaxing nook on your porch.
