Highback Swings For Added Back Support

  1. Space Size How big is the size of the space you are putting your swing? Are you getting a swing for your porch? Or are you getting a swing for your patio or garden that will hang from a stand? Either way, you need to measure the space to see how large of a swing you can fit. Don’t just measure length and width…consider the height of the swing as well. And, don’t just measure the length, width and height of the swing, you need to factor in the heads, legs and arms of all those comfortable people that are enjoying said swing that will extend past those measurements. AND…you can’t just think of those measurements…you have to consider the fact that your swing and those hanging-off relaxed body parts will swing too. That’s a lot of measuring and thinking.

  2. Pillow Size We have many pillow and cushion experts at ThePorchSwingCompany.com. We know that there are a lot of people out there who love pillows. If you have bins, closets or cabinets of throw pillows that you just had to have…you aren’t alone. Many of our customers tell us that they need to buy perfectly fitting, customized swing cushions, but they already have lots of outdoor pillows that they plan to take out and finally use. Or, you may not have an outdoor pillow-collecting habit, and you might be excited to buy a brand new swing with coordinating cushions and pillows.
