Do you have memories of being pushed by your mom, dad, or siblings on a swing in the playground? Or of you and your friends standing on swing seats as you laugh while swaying back and forth? Relive these fun times by installing a swing at home. They make for great pieces for relaxtion, too. Here are some ideas you can work on:

1. Hang a swing on a tree branch. 

This timeless and nostalgic swing will have you reminiscing about your vacations in your grandparents' house in the countryside. This suits a rustic or country-style home. Just make sure the branch you're hanging the swing from is sturdy to avoid accidents. 

2. Put a swing indoors.

Create a cozy reading nook and use a swing instead of the typical wing chair-and-footstool combo. Throw in an area rug and a pillow to make your spot warm and comfy. You can add floor pillows, too. Find a similar swing at Dedon, Living Innovations, GF Units 106 & 107 Fort Victoria 5th Ave. cor. 23rd Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Metro Manila.

3. Paint your metal swings with bright colors. 

Make your swings look fun and quirky by painting them in bright colors. If you have kids, you can paint your swings with their favorite hues. Just don't leave your children, especially small ones, unattended while they're playing. 

4. Use a graphic fabric.

Put a funky twist to an ordinary swing by using a bold-patterned fabric. Have it sewn to a wooden frame, secure the swing using ropes, and hang it from a tree branch. 

5. Make a sleeping nook on your porch.

Because why not? Take advantage of the cool breeze and take your nap outdoors. Put a mattress, a pillow, and a throw on your swing, and you're ready to catch some zzzz's. 


6. Go Boho.

Unleash your colorful and carefree self by putting a swing indoors and working with a Boho theme. Now, who wouldn't be stunned? Find a similar swing seat at Dedon, Living Innovations, GF Units 106 & 107 Fort Victoria 5th Ave. cor. 23rd Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Metro Manila
