Sweet summertime! Few things are quite as relaxing as swinging in the shade of a canopy on a hot July afternoon. With an ice-cold lemonade in one hand and someone special at your side cooling in the breeze, you've got it made in the shade. But what makes a canopy swing great and how do you find the one that's just right for you? Here are a few quick tips to help you browse the site and start swinging!
1. Measure first! Know how much area you have at your disposal and then buy a swing that fits. Every swing has its overall dimensions printed right on the page.
2. Canopy swings are the most diverse products we offer. Each one has a unique sense of style to fit your exterior decor, and you can browse according to finish and narrow your search greatly.
3. Aesthetics aside, you're going to want a canopy that's made of the proper materials. Is the shelter provided by fabric or metal, resin or wood? Each has its own striking look and its own level of durability.
4. The toughest, most weather-resistant canopy is nothing without a sturdy frame to support it. Both metal and wood are long-lasting, but metal takes the prize. Wood gives your backyard or patio a more quaint country appeal, but metal can come in a powder-coating that prevents rust, peeling, chipping, and corrosion.
5. How many folks do you want swinging at any given time? Two-seaters are most common, but any large family knows that kids will find a way to squeeze in even when the seats are full. Pay close attention to a swing's weight capacity and whether or not it's adjustable.
6. A swing is great. A swing with a side shelf to set aside your lemonade on a hot summer day is nirvana.
7. CanopyCenter.com organizes its Canopy swings by brand, customer review, and price range in the left navigation bar so you can find a name you can trust, opinions by shoppers just like you, and a price to fit your budget.
8. Scroll to the bottom of a product's details and dimensions page and read about the care and maintenance of your canopy swing of choice. Some canopies are easier to clean than others. Polyester can be spot-cleaned with soap and water without the need for harsh chemicals.
