Cheap Patio Swing Reviews
Here you’ll find in-depth reviews of every cheap patio swing shown in the table above, allowing you to know their unique qualities and details.
Starting off our list we have this Castlecreek unit which is the cheapest porch swing that’s good enough to recommend. While other entries at this price level offer a mediocre frame and flimsy fabric, this one actually delivers a solid, if simple, experience at a ridiculously low price. The steel frame is powder coated to prevent rust and it’s fairly sturdy, allowing the 5′ long seat to safely hold 3 people at a time, to a maximum weight of 500 lbs. The brand’s trademark DuraMesh fabric looks good and although it’s quite thin, it still holds up decently against the weather. It’s fairly comfortable due to the shape although a bit more cushioning would make a world of difference. Overall this cheap patio swing delivers the basics quite nicely and while it won’t surprise or last very long, it still offers a lot of value for the price.
With the unique feature of being able to convert into a bed and a decent construction, this cheap patio swing presents itself as a solid, if flawed, option. The seat is around 5 feet long and has enough space for 3 people. Keep in mind that all three cushion pads are separate from each other and removable of course. The frame has a simple design and decent durability but although it can handle up to 750 lbs of weight, the finish on it looks a bit cheap. Fabric-wise, it uses regular polyester on both the cushions and the canopy. The canopy is also adjustable, allowing you to track the sun. Assembling the unit is quick and easy, it only takes around 1 hour with 2 people working on it. It’s a decent unit and while the fabric could be thicker and the finish could be better looking, at such a low price it does a good job on offering the essentials.
Mainstay’s popular patio swing successfully combines affordability and quality, resulting in a sturdy and surprisingly well-designed product that’s available at a very attractive price. The 5.3 feet long seat has plenty of room for 3 people and it’s covered with soft, button tufted cushions that make sitting on it a comfortable experience. It has a nicely designed frame that features modern straight lines, a beautiful weatherproof finish and enough resistance to hold up to 750 lbs of weight. The quality of the polyester used on the canopy and cushions is better than expected and the canopy itself can be tilted to give you shade at any time. It’s fairly easy to assemble and it comes backed by a 1 year warranty. It’s also available in different colors – tan, green, brown – and some come with a set of extra pillows bundled. It’s simple but does the basics right, offering you an all-around good experience at an inexpensive price.
This is the cheapest wooden yard swing I’ve ever gotten and it was a good investment. I knew that other wooden units at this price slacked on the quality of either the wood or the construction but that’s not the case here – this one’s actually a well crafted product. The seat’s 5′ long, making it big enough for 3 people, and it’s also curved for added comfort (which is almost a necessity in wooden swings). It weighs a hefty 145 lbs (similar ones are 100 lbs or less) and the sturdy construction makes it strong enough to endure 750 lbs of weight. It swings smoothly and looks great as well due to the white cedar which is also naturally resistant against rot and weather. Assembly is a breeze as well and it’s backed by a 1 year warranty. It’s also made in America which is something I always appreciate. This beautiful cedar wood swing will positively surprise you, giving off great bang for the buck.
And finally, Abba Patio’s most popular swing. It’s easy to see why so many people like it, it’s an excellent product for the price that offers you comfort and good looks without compromising on quality. It’s available in two sizes – 2 seats or 3 – so you can choose whichever fits your needs and space better. The steel frame is strong, handling up to 600 lbs of weight, and weatherproof too due to the powder coating. It looks great too as the design is sleek and the colors match perfectly. The seat (the 3 person option) is 5.6 ft long and comfortable to seat on, especially due to the soft button tufted cushions. The cushions are also removable and the set comes with an extra round pillow. On each side of the seat you’ll find a small table which you can use to place your drinks, phone or whatever else you need. The swinging motion is smooth and silent and the adjustable canopy ensures you stay nice and cool at all times. They used a quality polyester on the cushions and canopy, making them durable, easy to clean and color fast. Assembling it is straightforward and it comes backed by a 1 year warranty. It’s easily one of the best cheap patio swings you can get.
And there you go, now there’s no excuse not to enjoy sunny days. These beautifully cheap porch swings will allow you to get a lot more enjoyment out of your outdoors, even if you’re on a budget.
