To put it simply, a swing bed is essentially a bed frame suspended above the ground by chains or ropes mounted on the ceiling. The mattress casings of the swings could be made of several diverse issues. The most common ofcourse, is wood. The ropes and/or chains are then mounted on each of the corners of the bed frame and then to the ceiling to raise the frame in regards to a foot or so above the ground. After it's mounted properly, you may have a double, full, or queen-measurement bed dangling on your porch or patio like a swing.
