Bed Swing Styles

We've found porch swing beds in almost every style imaginable, from New Orleans flair, traditional, English cottage, fan back, to colonial and even nautical.

Although traditionally used on porches, swing beds are wonderful for screen porches, sleeping porches, lanais, and even in the interior of your home. No matter where you choose to use your porch swing bed, it is an ideal place to hang out (pun intended).

This swing does not come with the cushion.



Bed Swing Materials

You can find swing beds in a wide variety of materials but recommend you opt for cedar, cypress, or other wood that is better suited for outdoor use. You will find many beds in pine or poplar and those will work fine if they are maintained properly (either painted or stained and sealed) to prevent moisture issues.


Swing Bed Sizes

Porch swing beds usually come in traditional sizes like twin or queen. However, depending on the manufacturer, you may be able to customize the swing to the size you need.

Here are some typical swing bed sizes; however, they do vary based on the manufacturer so you need to verify:
  • Twin - 48W x 86D x 35H in.
  • Full - 63W x 86D x 35H in.
  • Queen - 69W x 96D x 35H in.

Porch Swing Bed Considerations

Because of their size, you may need extra space on your porch as it is larger than a typical porch swing.

Almost all swing beds are perfect as beds but most are not as comfortable when using them as porch swings. The back support (if it has one) is usually just too far back to rest comfortably when swinging without having lots of pillows.

However, we know an innovative company who makes a swing bed that easily turns into a really comfortable porch swing and one we have seen firsthand and enjoy.


Our Favorite Porch Bed Swings

Because of Something Extra

Of all the swing beds we've researched, we think you'll appreciate these from The Porch Company, one of our awesome sponsors. Not only for their beautiful craftsmanship, but also because their swing backs are adjustable for not only napping but also comfortable seating. You can even remove the back if you want.

That was always one of our hang-ups about bed swings - they weren't so comfortable for sitting. But with an adjustable bed swing, where you can move the back forward for comfortable seating, that makes all the difference. See several styles below.

We do not earn a commission if you purchase one, but the The Porch Company advertises with us.

After many different designs, prototypes, tweaks and input from different people with different skills, The Porch Company has developed a great product we've seen firsthand.

Here's what makes their swing beds innovative and more functional:
  • They are made with wooden arms and backs and a powder coated metal frame so they are not only incredibly strong, but lightweight.
  • The backs of their swing beds are adjustable, so you can leave them in the furthest back position to enjoy it as a bed, move them forward for more comfortable seating, or remove it completely.

Easy to assemble!
Not only are the swing beds easy to assemble but they also offer customers attractive mattress and pillow covers to complete the look.

They recommend twin-sized air mattresses for your swing bed due to the mildew issue. They even have a small opening in the covers that allow you to re-inflate your mattress without having to remove the cover. How clever is that!

Mary and I recommend you see what The Porch Company has to offer and to learn more about their amazing swing beds today! We are also very pleased they are one of our sponsors.


Porches were made for swings. So make your porch happy and go all out with a porch swing bed.

Send us pictures of your swing bed as we'd love to share them with others.
