How to Revamp Your Outdoor Space This Summer

The Porch Swing Company launched in 2008 with a mission to offer handcrafted outdoor furniture from skilled Amish artisans. 

“We’ve worked for more than a decade to forge relationships with local craftsmen and small shops across the nation,” says Hayley Phillips, the company’s director of e-commerce. “These relationships allow us to offer a unique shopping experience. Today, our customers browse the country’s best niche handmade outdoor furniture right from their homes. They customize porch swings, gliders, rocking chairs, and so much more to create the ultimate in an exclusive porch or patio experience.”

It’s time to create an outdoor haven

Why have a dream home that ends at the front door? Summer is in full swing, and it’s high time to enjoy the best of outdoor living. The Porch Swing Company transforms lackluster porches and patios into extensions of the indoor living space. 

“Creating a tranquil outdoor haven isn’t just about achieving a look,” Phillips explains. “An outdoor oasis inspires families to come together and form lasting memories over lazy glasses of lemonade. It all happens when you design a comfortable, inviting, and timeless space.”

To help families unwind, The Porch Swing Company offers luxurious porch swings, rocking chairs, swing beds, and gliders in various styles, from traditional to modern. Because most handcrafted products are made-to-order, they can be customized to each customer’s individual lifestyle and taste.

Start with a focal piece

“A relaxing outdoor lounge area brings peace and comfort to a home,” says Phillips. The first step in refreshing a backyard patio or front porch for the summer season is centering the space around a unique focal piece. This one-piece grounds the entire conversation area and sets the stage for years of outdoor enjoyment.

“The focal piece sets the tone for your outdoor conversation area,” remarks Philips. “We offer porch swings and swing beds that complement anything from a rustic farmhouse look to a trendy modern aesthetic.” 

The Centerville Amish Heavy Duty 700-pound Roll Back Treated Porch Swing is the company’s most popular piece, as its ergonomic rolled seating and horizontal slat design provide the perfect blend of Amish-made quality and unparalleled comfort. The swing’s traditional design coordinates with almost any aesthetic.

Another favorite focal piece is the Porchgate Amish Heavy Duty 700-pound Farmhouse Porch Swing. With enough room for two or three, families can swing to the rhythm of the cicadas as summer evenings slip into starry nights. 

Families who want the ultimate in relaxation often turn to Breezy Acres Porch Swing Beds. Breezy Acres specializes in swing bed production, handcrafted out of Millheim, Pennsylvania. Most Breezy Acres Swing Beds feature the unique option to include cup or wine glass holders, and their unique sizing options make adding a swing bed to your space possible for everyone, no matter the size.

Amish craftsmen select the finest pressure-treated yellow pine for these focal pieces. Swings and swing beds are all constructed with corrosion-resistant hardware. Finally, the pieces are finished with a Sherwin-Williams stain — all of which combine to create premium outdoor furniture that lasts for generations.In addition to handcrafted wood furniture, The Porch Swing Company also offers a line of swings composed of eco-friendly recycled plastic. “These pieces provide customers with the best of both worlds,” says Phillips. “They are good for the planet and incredibly low maintenance — no staining, no sanding, and no painting. All you need is a garden hose to clean them off once or twice each year.”

Accessorize the porch or patio with coordinating pieces

In addition to stunning focal pieces, The Porch Swing Company offers accents to coordinate with the central theme, including ottomans and cushions to help finish off the look of an outdoor haven. For example, families sometimes need extra seating in their outdoor conversation area. In that case, they can mix and match an ottoman or this Convertible Bench Picnic Table with any larger piece.

Accessories can also add a pop of color and additional comfort to rustic wood furniture. The company’s Cushion Perfect Cushion Options feature Sunbrella’s premium outdoor fabric that stands up to the elements and looks great season after season. These high-quality pillows and cushions are available in a wide array of colors and patterns.

Once the focal piece and accents are chosen, it’s time to finish off the area with outdoor lighting, hanging plants, and subtle decor. Whether customers want to add flair to a breezy boho patio, bring homey charm to a rustic cabin porch, or design an outdoor staycation area with a beach house vibe, the Porch Swing Company can deliver. 

“Our pillow sets, cushions, and wood stains complement any aesthetic,” Phillips says. “You can customize pieces in a variety of finishes, and even purchase unfinished pieces to paint or stain yourself.”

Creating the perfect outdoor space for your home requires a great centerpiece, but don’t forget about these important accents. By combining great accents with your swing, you can make the perfect place to congregate with your loved ones for a lovely summer afternoon.
