Simple but very good looking and ridiculously inexpensive, this cheap wooden porch swing by Lakeland Mills offers the basics with style and without compromising quality. It’s made in America and uses regional white cedar which is handsome and naturally resistant against rot, insects and weather. The seat is 4 feet long (5 feet option available) which is big enough for 2 people and the curved shape makes it comfortable. It features a charming log design that brings a earthy and natural look to your patio, fitting right in with most decor styles. The construction is solid as well, allowing the swing to endure up to 600 lbs of weight. Assembling the unit is very straightforward and it comes backed with 1 year of warranty. In short, this log porch swing was a great surprise, delivering an impressive amount of quality at a budget price.
This beautifully cheap porch swing by Kilmer Creek is highly popular for a reason. It’s attractive, featuring a red cedar wood body with handsome detailing, and sturdy due to the great handcrafted Amish quality plus it’s made right here in America. The cedar wood is very resilient against the wear and tear of nature such as rot, sun and rain, making this unit durable even if left outside all year round. The 5 feet long seat has enough room for 3 people or even 4 and it’s contoured to ensure your comfort. Every single piece of the swing has been carefully rounded and smoothed and it doesn’t use any nails, only screws and bolts, all for your safety. The solid construction, including the chains used, allow it to endure up to 550 lbs of weight although you can get even better hardware to pump the number up safely since the swing’s structure can take it. It looks natural (which I like) since this version is not stained, although if you prefer you can either use your favorite finish on it or get the other version of this swing that already comes with a nice finish. It’s easy to set up and comes with the standard 14 days return policy, although I highly doubt you’ll be using it. Remember, it’s also available in a version that already comes finished if you prefer – just scroll down on the product’s page to find it. With great looks and sturdy construction, it’s yet another impressive cheap porch swing that delivers great bang for the buck.
This is the first roll back porch swing on the list and while it looks somewhat simple, it does a good job on offering a comfortable and durable swing experience without any big flaws or drawbacks. It uses kiln-dried pine, giving it similar properties to cedar such as rot resistance and resilience against weather, which coupled with the rustproof hardware makes it a great outdoors unit. The seat is 5 feet long, fitting in 3 people or more and the rollback design makes it comfortable to use. Every single edge is rounded and smoothed to ensure your safety and the swing’s construction (including the chains) is strong enough to hold up to 800 lbs of weight. It’s got a natural look to it which compliments your patio no matter the style of decor. Even with sub-par instructions, assembling it is simple and quick and the unit comes with a fantastic lifetime warranty as well. It doesn’t have a finish so be sure to give it a coat if you prefer, it will extend its life when you use it outdoors. This swing’s simple but well made all-around and strikes a great balance between quality and price.
Another entry from Ecommersify, this time with a more interesting unit that offers a concealed cup holder in the middle, making it a pretty cool porch swing. You can just flip it down when you need it and and back up again when you don’t, making room for more people if needed. The construction quality is on par with the previous model (sturdy, smooth edges, rustproof hardware) although the body is made of a much better wood than dried pine – Cypress – which shares cedar’s excellent resilient qualities but is stronger and has a more distinct look to it. The seat’s 5 feet long, giving enough room for 3 people or more to sit comfortably, although due to the center console it loses a bit of structure as it’s apparent in its weight limit of 500 lbs (instead of 800 lbs like in the previous model). The roll back design is comfy and good looking plus the cup holder is handy and very discreet, which I like. Like the other one, it’s easy to assemble and comes with a lifetime warranty to boot. While most flip cup holder models are quite expensive, this one manages to deliver the same experience at a very affordable price which makes it a great option.
This is one of my favorites on the list because it does everything right. The look, the performance, the comfort and durability – it’s all there and at a mind blowing price – if you want a classic wooden front porch swing, this is it. Starting with the body, it’s made of dried pine that has been pressure treated to drastically improve its durability and it has a cedar stain finish that looks absolutely stunning. Like cedar, it’s highly resistant against rot and weathering, allowing you to leave it outside all year round without worrying. It’s handmade in America by expert Amish craftsmen, resulting in a carefully detailed unit that features smooth corners, great fit & finish and two beautiful cup holders on each side. Not only are they handsome but handy as well, allowing you to place your drinks on them with ease. The seat is 5 feet long, offering enough room for 3 people or more while its roll back design ensures comfort. It’s very sturdy as well, including the hardware, enduring up to 800 lbs of weight safely. Assembling this beauty is very straightforward and the chain that comes with it is 8 feet long, remember to get more if you need it. Excellent value for the price is what you’ll get with this inexpensive porch swing, it’s guaranteed to impress.
Beautiful, natural and expertly handcrafted, this unique porch swing offers a complete and comfortable experience at a fantastic price. The body’s made of Cypress which is also known as “The Eternal Wood” due to its excellent resilience and durability against use, rot, weathering and everything in between. It’s also carefully smoothed and every corner is rounded, ensuring your safety and comfort. The seat is 5 feet long and rolled, comfortably seating 3 people or even more. Sturdily built and with strong chains included, it can endure up to 600 lbs of weight easily and due to the weatherproof materials used, it can be left outside all year round. It features an interesting cup holder design, having one on each arm swing instead of outside or in the center like we usually see. This is both handy and good looking. The assembly is easy as pie and as a bonus, it’s 100% made in America. When it comes to getting a high-quality cheap porch swing, this is certainly one of the best.
