Patio double gliders are made for snuggling. You can choose four or five feet wide glider, depending on how comfortable you like to get, or how many children or grandchildren like to pile up together with you in your glider. Great thing about gliders is that they can be placed on any porch or patio, since they do not need support like swings. If you like to keep your glider on the open porch or in the garden, look for gliders made of red cedar or recycled plastic. Oak, yellow pine, wrought iron or plastic wicker double gliders should be protected from strong rains and sun. Buying a high quality glider means that you can count on a very strong and well made metal moving parts. But, it is up to you to make them stay well oiled and running smooth. Your glider would be even more comfortable with a nice, plush seat cushion and a couple of small pillows for your back. They will also add a touch of color to your patio, and you can change them easily when you want to bring a bit of change to your style.
