Ways to Get Rockin' with Rocking Benches
1. Picture this: you're in your yard, on your garden bench, in the shade, reading a book, and sipping a cool drink. What could make this scene any more relaxing? Easy - turn that bench into a garden rocking bench.
2. Great for yards, gardens, patios, and porches, outdoor rocking benches give you all the features of a regular outdoor bench but with the added charm of a rocking chair. They come in various styles, including traditional wooden slat rocking benches, double Adirondack rocking benches, and rustic cedar log rocking benches. Seats can be flat or contoured, and weather-resistant cushions can always be added for comfort.
3. The various styles and finishes on a rocking bench can really change the look, so remember to consider where you'll be placing your rocker when you make your selection. A natural finish on a wooden slat rocker looks casual and classic; that same rocker, painted white, streamlines and cleans up to a very traditional look. A rocking bench made of unfinished logs has a rougher, rustic look (but no splinters). Metal trim on a wooden rocker is a little more decorative and formal. And of course, an Adirondack rocking bench offers the usual lakeside charm in any material or finish.
