Outdoor Gliders for Deck, Patio and Porch

Updated on July 27, 2013

Patio and porch gliders

Here is what I like about outdoor deck gliders and benches: the glide motion is a mix between a rocking and a swing motion. Spend a warm afternoon in one of these and you will understand what I mean.

The motion of a glider bench is smooth and not too wide - just right and calming - and you get the swing motion without the tilt a rocking chair has. Here you can sit upright and still enjoy the slide and rock action.

The best part about seats such as the SunSetter Classic Glider Bench shown in this image, is that they offer enough room for you to share the moment with someone else!

This is a pretty long glider bench with ample space for two or more. This is a Amish crafted stained cedar wood glider with nice finish and smoothed edges. Extra wide model with 34 inch back and a rounded front bench edge.

I like this model. A solid, hand-made piece.

      We had an old metal glider on our porch. It was my very favorite outdoor place to sit!

      Well, rock and roll and swing too ... I surely do love to glide whenever I find a glider!

      @Bellezza-Decor: Me too. It has a deep seat angle that looks just right for a lazy afternoon on the porch :)

      I like the wooden glider chair in hardwood.

      Oh I agree, gliding is much more soothing than a rocking motion, and more fun than sitting still. :)

      I remember the Retro style all metal glider bench, in the Florida 60's. Then it was a glider that after years of delightful use, got fresh coats of paint to spruce it up. Sweet!
