Indoor swings are not necessarily for kids. For those who haven’t forgot how wonderful it is to be a child again, indoor swings are already available on the market and they can be placed basically in any room you prefer. In general, people prefer to place them in their living room, so read on for more ideas on having an indoor swing.
You must know that installing an indoor swing bring some fun even in the darkest of rooms. It’s great not only for swinging, but also for spending time in it reading, watching TV and even simply chatting with your family. The best part about them is that they have different designs, which you can customize and match to the rest of your interior arrangement. Another advantage is that you can place it almost anywhere where you have a ceiling and even move it afterwards, if for instance you want to make your kids happy and install it in their own room.
An alternative to buying an indoor swing is to craft your own hanging furniture. Yes, furniture, not just swings. Take a couch for instance and hang it from the ceiling. Or your bed. Just imagine how awesome it would be to have your own hanging bed! Even a small bench and a cushion can replace one of the commercial indoor swings.
There are lots of options when it comes to the design of the swing. As we stated, you can simply choose a bench and hang it and call it a swing. But if you want extra comfort, you can upgrade it a little bit. Choose an egg-shaped armchair or a round design. Round designs usually inspire relaxation and comfort, especially if you add some cushions around. Alternatively, for more aggressive designs you can try a square-shaped swing.
The colors are also very important. First of all, they have to match your color scheme for the specific room where you want to install it. If you plan to change its location over time, you can choose neutral colors like white, black or shades of gray. Otherwise, the more colorful the swing, the better, since we’re talking about being a kid again, right? You can even make crazy combinations, blue and green, orange and pink, since you don’t have to abide to any rules.
The last and the most important thing is to make sure that your ceiling can support the weight of such indoor swings. If the swing is quite small, there shouldn’t be any problem, although you still have to consult a specialist to assist you with installing it and testing the resistance of the structure. If there is a bigger swing for several people, like a couch or even the bed we were talking about earlier, then you should really ask yourself if you should install it. Nobody wants to destroy his/her house structure, and it’s better to be safe than sorry.
