Stained swing beds are usually the best choice for those who want a swing bed made of rich wood such as teak, cypress or cedar. These highly valued hardwoods are very beautiful and stain only highlights the rich wood grains. If you prefer different color or hue of the natural wood you chose, such as gray or green, there are stains that achieve that without affecting the wood natural beauty. Stained swing beds are available in a range of styles, from rustic and traditional to modern and Victorian. They also come in several sizes – crib, twin, full or queen. Choose the right size for your porch. If it is too big, your porch will feel crowded. If you plan to enjoy your swing bed for sleeping under the stars, go for the biggest, queen size bed. Pile it up with a thick mattress and add a bunch of pillows and it will easily become your favorite spot in the house for curling with a book or snuggling with the kids. While swing beds come with the option to hang them from two or four points, the bigger the bed the more points you need for your safety. For more natural look, you can choose to hang your stained swing bed from the natural rope, or you can choose a classic chain.
