Outdoor Patio Gliders
I will look at some outdoor patio gliders that will give you someplace to sit close to someone. You can place one of these gliders in any area indoors or outdoors for a romantic getaway or just someplace to read a good book. Having some motion will let your mood relax after a long day in the traffic or office.
The styles that are shown in this article are just some of the many variations that are ready for purchase today. Not all styles will fit in all outdoor decors. Look at your decor and needs before making your decision. I have a glider at the lake and use it when relaxing and having a nice cold drink.
Some of these gliders are part of a collection of patio furniture, you can get matching items. Just follow the links in each section for more details.
Now lets look at the details of each glider and see what will work for you.

My thoughts on these gliders
Depending on your decor needs, you will find one of these outdoor patio gliders will give you hours of sitting time with a friend. Most of these gliders will come with matching furniture for a bigger outdoor area. I have a metal glider with a cushion, this is a very nice piece of furniture for long term sitting and conversations.

I have never used a glider before, which is why this article is very helpful for me. I should ask my aunt to get one for her backyard. My family members will definitely enjoy relaxing on a patio glider.
I really like the look of the Delahey glider. It seems like the assembly will take some time, due to the various moving parts that we have to deal with. How long do you think a glider can last before it breaks down?
The Delahey Glider is made of a hardwood material. It has brass and stainless steel moving parts. If you keep the wood treated with the proper oil and keep the hardware from rusting, it will last a long time. Hardwoods are made to last a lifetime in the outdoor environment, they do tend to cost a lot more. If your hardware starts to rust it can be replaced at your local hardware store.
Hi!! I’m renovating my house and my husband and I are actually looking for outdoor furniture! I like the options you showed on this page and I love the Azalea Ridge glider! I think it would look very nice on my deck 🙂 It looks very comfortable too. Nice review, thank you!
The Azalea Ridge collection is one of the biggest collections in the outdoor furniture line. The resin wicker will outlast the cushions by many years. One of the biggest problems is the replacement cushions are almost the cost of a new piece of furniture. Please protect your investment with storage for your cushions.
What good timing for me to find your site! I am going to be converting my outdoor deck into an enclosed patio of some sort and I didn’t want to get any patio furniture until this project is done so the furniture will stay nice. I like the idea of having a glider in my newly enclosed patio space! When the project is done I will have to come back and visit your site so I can select the best glider for me!!
I enclosed my outdoor deck about 13 years ago, and made it a three season room. I have mostly indoor furniture in this room as we have a heat and AC unit for this room and use it almost all year round. I have a glider at the lake that we put out when we go. It makes for a great place to sit and watch the world go by
