Outdoor Furniture Glider

For Your Front Porch, Deck or Patio

An outdoor furniture glider for your front porch offers a great place to relax. Being a woodworker, I prefer a wood glider.

There's just something about the feel and look of wood that I really enjoy. However, you can also enjoy gliders in wrought iron, wicker, or even recycled materials.



Choose a style that fits your porch's space as well as your physical needs such as a high-back glider that adds additional upper back support.

The more comfortable the fit, the more often you'll use your porch glider.

Unlike a porch swing that is hung from above, a glider is operated from mechanisms at the bottom. This makes the actual swing more smooth and is a little safer to use than a porch swing.

It also makes a glider more portable; you can easily move it from one location to another on your porch.

. There are many glider designs, materials, and sizes from which to choose. You should be able to easily find one that fits your decor, budget and porch no matter its size.
