Should I Choose a Patio Swivel Glider or Lounge Chair for my Lanai?

Should I Choose a Patio Swivel Glider or Lounge Chair for my Lanai?

Some things to consider when making your decision –

  • Lounge chairs and swivel gliders use close to the same amount of space. Since there arent any gains to be made in that area definitely go with the one you prefer in comfort and looks.
  • Lounge chairs are typically lighter and easier to move around your patio or lanai easier that swivel gliders. Gliders usually have a metal base that makes them heavier than lounge chairs.
  • Swivel Gliders tend to run $50 to $100 more on average when compared to the price of a lounge chair.
  • Create the look you want to achieve with either the chair or glider by choosing your preferred fabric. The possibilites are endless!

Are you ready to make a decision? Will it be the Swivel Glider or the Lounge Chair for your outdoor space?

Space isnt a deciding factor because both swivel glider and lounge chair use about the same amount of space. If you need to move the chairs often a lounge chair might make the better choice. Of course everyone considers pricing when buying furniture so the lounge chair is cheaper and will win in the price category. And finally, the area of comfort and swivel gliders were designed with more comfort in mind as you can recline back and the swivel glider is just a better overall option for comfort. When you consider all the factors it looks like a draw with advantages being about the same for the 2 types of patio chairs. For me personally, I will choose comfort and go with the swivel gliders. I think they’re more comfortable and even more unique and appealing looking.
