If you landed here with a search for hanging daybeds, or more specifically, a defense of them, you’ve found it. We’ve been doing this for years now, and firmly stand behind each and every one of our handmade hanging daybeds and patio swing beds.
Not just because we make them, though. There are plenty of excellent, practical reasons you should get a hanging daybed for your home - especially if you are already kicking the idea around.
Here are some of our best reasons why a hanging daybed can be a value-added, lifestyle-improving feature of your home, no matter what room you put it in!
What a Hanging Daybed Provides for Your Home
First, let’s get a little deeper into how a hanging daybed can add flavor and value to your home - then, we can pick about the experience so you can understand what keeps people coming back, time and time again, to these novel designs.
The “Pop” Factor
First up, it’s the pop factor.
What we need you to do is envision a home. Envision the perfect interior space, whatever that is to you. Did it have a hanging daybed?
Probably not, right? But that’s not a reason not to get one. Allow us to explain.
What we’re trying to point out is not that your ideal setting lacks a hanging swing or daybed, but that they are so rare and unique that you probably wouldn’t conjure one up in your imagination.
Now let’s get that though experiment in the rearview and try something a little bit different. Think up 15 homes you’ve been in, besides your own, in recent memory. They could be homes of friends, family, coworkers, acquaintances, or even just homes you saw on TV or in magazines.
Did any of those homes have porch swings, bed swings, or hanging daybeds? The answer is probably still no, right?
Again, this is not an illustration that you shouldn’t get one. It is a comparative representation of scarcity and exclusivity.
If you choose to get a hanging daybed for your home, you’ll be one of the few people (if any) that has them. This all boils down to one very important thing: “pop” factor.
It’s hard to define it, but as Justice Stewart once famously quipped, you’ll know it when you see it. Some houses have it, other houses wish they had it. There is no in-between.
And, in case you’re worrying that you won’t be able to “pull it off,” consider this. Hanging up a daybed swing is effectively impossible to do the “wrong” way. You can’t commit a fashion faux pas with a bed swing. They’re just too rare.
And, by the way, and in case you were wondering, homes with “pop” factor tend to increase in value. No need to thank us - just get your daybed swing here!
Enjoying Relaxation to the Utmost
Now onto the best part of the argument in favor of daybed swings - that of personal comfort. There’s a lot we can say about this, but let’s start here.
Have you ever been in a boat on calm waters? If so, are you familiar with the dock rock you get when you come ashore again? That feeling of rushing and falling gently on phantom swells? Some people don’t like it and call it stillness illness - others crave it.
Those that love it enjoy the sensation of drifting off to sleep in a bed after days or even weeks on the water, when the swells seem to continue, lulling them into a deep state of relaxation.
A daybed swing doesn’t quite replicate the experience perfectly, but it’s the best simulation you’ll find, other than the real thing. If you can’t spend your days on the water, enjoying that feeling of dock rock with some personal time in a hanging daybed is the next best thing.
Resting in a daybed swing is immensely relaxing and enjoyable, and creating a private little nook for yourself in your home with one will bring joy that can only be experienced and cannot be communicated - at least not effectively.
As we have observed ourselves, it can be downright dangerous to pour yourself a drink while reposing in a daybed - if only because it will utterly rob you of the desire to fulfill any of your worldly responsibilities whatsoever!
But in all seriousness, it’s not just talk that a hanging daybed can probably help you relax more and more often. While it’s only anecdotal, some people really swear by them,
That’s actually why some people are so emphatic that sleeping in a hammock is really better. They swear it helps them get to sleep faster and allows, even encourages them, to sleep more deeply. We can’t point to any concrete studies that prove this, but the repeated suggestion is enough for us. We know what it’s like to relax in a daybed swing, and are confident that once you do, the experience will substantiate itself.
But, if you’re looking for some kind of explanation, we may be able to offer one. It’s been observed by some that the reason hammocks (and swing beds) offer better sleep is that the rhythmic rocking motion syncopates with your brain waves, encouraging you to sleep and fostering more restful sleep. Others have remarked that resting in a hammock or swing bed simulates the experience of being in the womb, encouraging restfulness and allowing sleepers to shed stress.
Of course, again, these reports are anecdotal, but as we said, the experience speaks for itself. Try it and you’ll become a believer.
