Having a balcony with a swing can be just what you need. We’ve listed a few balcony ideas with swings to help you create a relaxing haven with your outdoor areas
It harks back to the wind in our faces, swishing past our ears, hair flying all over the place as we climb higher and higher with each swing. The sense of freedom and weightlessness, the pure joy of not having any worries, the memory of feeling on top of the world – there is something particularly exhilarating about being a child on a swing. We may not swing as high as we used to as kids, but we still get so much joy from relaxing on a swing for the balcony. The soft rocking and gentle breeze instil a sense of calm.
In the last few years of lockdowns and now a post-pandemic world, we are spending a lot more time at home which had made us really appreciate our outdoor spaces so much more. We’ve realised just how important it is for our wellbeing and mental health to connect with our surroundings and whatever form of nature we can get. Garden, rooftop terrace or balcony design became a popular query, especially for urban dwellings. And, of course, the swing reigns supreme in turning an ordinary balcony into a haven of peace. Here are a list of garden and balcony swing ideas along with a few design tips to give your outdoor spaces a fun makeover.

Balcony Design Ideas to Help You Craft the Perfect Outdoor Space
Beautiful Homes Service for Your Home Interior Design and Décor
Take inspiration from these swing ideas for the balcony and other outdoor spaces – whether small or large. From traditional to boho-chic to rustic to modern, there is a swing style out there for any kind of space. Work in a few of our below-mentioned balcony design ideas along with a swing to craft your perfect spot.
This freestanding wooden jhula design for balcony adds a traditional flair to your outdoor spaces. Every element from the ornate carvings and elephant figurines to the canopy and finials elevates the décor with Old-World charm.
Wood and cane are a match made in heaven. Create a natural and rustic vibe in your balcony or other outdoor spaces by using these materials paired with organic textures and earth tones. Add a soft and comfy swing cushion, something you can just sink into like the one seen here.
This two-seater cane jhula for home balcony is the perfect for spending time with loved ones. The comfortable seating and simple, ceiling-hung design make it the ideal addition to a medium-sized outdoor area while cane works well with most décor styles, adding an organic texture to the visual. The neutral, grey colour-scheme is elevated with a patterned flooring and pops of vibrant colour with the soft furnishings and wall décor.
This hammock style jhula is a great small balcony swing idea. If you love the feel of relaxing in a hammock but your outdoor space is too small for one, this compact, ceiling-hung version in a swing form is perfect to snuggle up and enjoy some alone time. The style will also work well with quite a few décor styles from Boho-chic to beach-vibes to a nature-inspired space.
This balcony isn’t big on floor space but it is well-designed and showcases the ideal way to plan a small outdoor area. By using expansive, floor-to-ceiling sliding windows and continuing the same balcony flooring to the outdoor area, there is a visual connection formed giving the appearance of a larger area. A muted colour scheme is uplifted by live plants, minimal prints and a conservative use of brass accents. This swing for small balcony adds a more contemporary feel to the space and becomes the focal piece. Yet, it does not overpower the compact balcony. Wood, cane and brass work beautifully with the houndstooth patterned cushion; all coming together to create a peaceful zone.
If you’ve got a big enough balcony, it’s the perfect place to take a nap, especially if your surrounded by relaxing landscape. A bigger swing, like the one in the image, is almost like a gently rocking daybed – perfectly positioned to take in the sights and sounds of nature yet shaded from direct sun. A swing like this is a great garden jhoola design hanging in your patio and perfect to curl up in.
Remember the pure joy of swinging higher and higher as a child – it’s innate. Kids will always want to swing higher and faster so safety is the most important factor if you have kids using the swing especially on balconies and terraces. Make sure the space is enclosed in some way – metal safety ‘nets’ or even grills from top to bottom don’t take much away from your view but add a lot of safety.
When designing these areas, try a less is more approach. You don’t need to keep it stark and clinical, just creating a relaxing space with less. Not everything needs to conform to the minimalist design, you’re aiming to cut the unnecessary clutter to create a soothing vibe. Pick and choose from these balcony design ideas to create your ideal spot.
