So you’re looking at new ways to uplift and revitalize your home and lifestyle? Well, we have a few tricks up our sleeve and there’s a good chance you’ll never have tried what we’re about to suggest before!
Call it a rarity if you will, but there just aren’t that many homes around that make artful use of a daybed porch swing, and it sure isn’t from a lack of availability. All you need to pull off some of these pointers is a little spirit of creativity and a little help from us here at Four Oak Bed Swings.
With no further ado, here are some of the best ways you can revitalize your home and lifestyle with a daybed porch swing from our catalog.
- Spruce up your porch
Let’s face a simple truth - not every porch is graced with the unmistakable, unforgettable character of a porch swing. In fact, we’d even venture far enough to say that most are not!
Despite the fact that we’ve been featured on HGTV and are critically acclaimed for our quality and unique designs, there is still so much room around the country for folks to up their exterior design and offer a really unique perspective on porch arrangement.
Now, admittedly, even though you can spruce up your porch with a bed swing, ours are made from Southern Yellow Pine and not spruce, but nonetheless, they will lend an unmistakable quality of refinement to your porch, whether on the front porch or in the back.
People used to rubberneck to see spectacles of the road, but if you’re the first one on your block with a porch swing from Four Oak Bed Swings, they’ll be slowing down to check out your new style. Just call it a ‘Porsche’ swing!
- Jazz up your living room
Porch might be in the name, but a porch isn’t the only area in your home where you can make out like a thief with a traditional porch swing. You can add them to just any room in the house, but pump the brakes cause the living room is up next.
You entertain company on the porch, but you don’t stop there, right? Any time that you do your indoor entertaining you’ll be needing something to invigorate your sense of interior design, and perhaps your secret weapon should be reserved for the inside of your home where only intimate company comes to visit.
After all, maybe you’re the reserved type that doesn’t like to flaunt your airs about the town, and there’s nothing wrong with that. A little bit of grace and poise are in store for all of us, and maybe a day bed swing is in your cards - for the interior of your home.
Plus, if you really want to get one for the relaxation of it, what better place could there be for one than your living room, where you will presumably spend an appreciable amount of your time?
- Give your bedroom a facelift - or a bed lift, if you will
But it doesn’t stop there, because if you really are the type who likes to play cards on the down low, then the best place in your home for a swing bed is your bedroom, where you can really go to get away from it all - and that’s exactly what a daybed swing from our collection can provide for you.
A bed swing goes with the harmony, peace, and quiet of your bedroom like gloves go with a hat and coat. If you’re looking for a toned-down way to make a statement for your home while still adding value to it, then the place in your home where you should add a bed swing is most certainly your bedroom.
Besides, you won’t miss out on all of the other benefits that one of our models can offer you by doing so - you’ll just be reserving your appreciation for our designs to the most personal room in your home and there’s nothing wrong with that!
- Synchronize with your interior design aesthetic, no matter what it is!
Another great thing about our bed swings comes in the form of the fact that you can mesh with whatever vision you have for your home, with almost no exceptions. The only place one of our bed swings might seem a little amiss would be in only the most reserved of traditional aesthetics, and even then, you could tweak the aesthetic slightly to make one work.
No, by contrast, you will be absolutely amazed at how well - how effortlessly - you will find yourself able to work a bed swing into the design of your home. In fact, we recently wrote a comprehensive guide detailing some of the most prevalent design themes in the country at present and just how exactly you can get a bed swing to work with them. You can read our guide to designing themes and bed swings in our blog at the link above.
If you’re going for a coastal or a nautical theme, you’ll be impressed at how well our natural manila rope swings mesh with that design aesthetic. If, by contrast, you are a fan of industrial chic design, you’ll be similarly impressed with the decidedly industrial look of some of our swings. For you ruralists out there, the exposed, reclaimed wooden look of some of our bed swings will please.
In short, you won’t run out of inspiration while perusing our catalog!
- Get better sleep
Another thing that we have touched on in our blog is the potential for you to get better sleep, if not better rest and relaxation, by the aid of our bed swings. Now, honestly, a lot of the testimony that would assert the matter is anecdotal, but there is quite the corpus of anecdotal evidence at that, so take it for what you will, but it does demand attention.
People all over the world sing the praises of sleeping in a hammock because they claim that it gives them a better night’s sleep. There is a saying that ten thousand Frenchman can’t be wrong, and there is a lesser-known saying that we just coined that slightly fewer bed swing enthusiasts can’t be wrong either.
There’s also been research (inconclusive, but still) that suggests that sleeping in a hammock or a swing simulates sleeping in the womb, where the rhythmic motions you will experience syncopate with your brain waves to help facilitate sleep.
True or not, perhaps the best way for you to find out for yourself is simply to try it. Sleep in a bed swing for a night and see how you feel. You just might find it gives you your best sleep yet.
- Set out to sea without leaving the porch
Another thing you may simply love about a daybed porch swing is the feeling it will offer you the very moment you jump into one. This is especially true for you out there who own boats - or just those of you who like to be on the water.
The sensation of resting in a rocking bed swing is uncannily like that of being on a boat in a gentle chop, or even slightly more gentle rising and falling waters. Any one of you reading this who appreciates the feeling of being on the water when it’s not glassy smooth will probably love the feeling of being in a bed swing in motion.
Hop into one and you will immediately be transported to memories of a morning on the water. The bed will swing and sway gently under the impetus of your movement before slowly fading away. With each of your subtle movements, the swing will respond in kind, not entirely unlike a vessel.
That’s a bit of a niche appeal, but there are definitely people out there who will be drawn to it!
- Disconnect and relax more
Even if you aren’t drawn to the eerie similarity between the feeling of being in a bed swing and being on a boat, or to the idea that it might help you sleep better, you’ll definitely be able to relax and unwind more with the aid of one.
Put one on your porch and make it your chosen spit for unwinding with your preferred drink at the end of a long day, or make it a habit to catch up on some good literature in one in the corner of your room.
Whether you use it to help you sleep or not, you will find the draw of a porch swing undeniable, especially after you experience one. Right now the mere thought of it might be nothing more than a temptation, but if you ever get one of your own, the draw will be intoxicating!
- It will improve the value of your home
Another thing that you won’t be able to deny is that the addition of a swing bed to some area of your home - whether exterior or interior - will add value to your home. Full size, twin size, weather-resistant, whatever accessories you pair with them, none of that matters because all of our swing beds are made to represent the highest possible level of quality and for their scarcity alone will put the accent mark on your home to increase its value by a margin.
As we mentioned near the outset of this article, there just aren’t that many homes around rocking swing beds or porch swings despite the opportunities they present. It’s a quick and relatively easy way to add some unexpected value to your home and just might be the uncontested gem of your domicile!
- If nothing else, it will be a great conversation starter!
If you have no other reason besides personal preference to want to include a porch swing bed into the design of your home, but you need one anyway, consider this: it will serve as a conversation starter among all types of company.
Due in part to the same scarcity that will enable them to add value to your home, a swing bed will give your company a jumping-off point to learn more about your home and the inspiration that guided its decoration.
No one is going to enter your home and fail to notice your swing bed - and that’s almost a certainty. If you’re looking for a way to pass unmistakable, undeniable, unforgettable character into the genes of your home, you can do it with a swing bed. True, you can do it in other ways, but you can definitely do it with a swing bed!
Reach out to Us!
If there are two things that matter to us here at Four Oak Bed Swings, they are the uncompromised quality of our products and the customer experience that we provide our clients.
In the way of quality, we only produce our daybed porch swings from the finest components such as Southern Yellow Pine, which is both light and strong, as well as sustainable. We craft the frames from these and then complete the joints using age-old, proven techniques, and high-quality adhesives. In fact, the glues we use are so durable that the finished joints are stronger than the wood itself.
We then finish each bed swing with no fewer than three coats of high-quality outdoor grade varnish so that your bed swing will stand up not only to the elements but to the seasons as well. Then, we complete the picture with 1-inch manila rope and give our customers the choice of how they want their bed swing colored.
That quality, in part, affects the customer experience, but we see that on a separate front. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to reach out to us and we would be more than happy to answer any questions you have. Ask us for product suggestions, or for design advice; let us clear up any questions you have on how we make our products. Give us a call at 334-202-2870 today and we’ll help you out - and remember, our products ship assembled, and they ship for free, too!
