Rocking Chair / April 28, 2018 / Reyna Bush
First, you need to decide between a traditional rocker and a glider. Traditional indoor rockers are the kind that rock on two long curved pieces while gliders are mechanical pieces of furniture that mimic the feeling of a rocking chair by gliding along rungs. There are pros and cons to both approaches. With a traditional rocking chair, there is no risk of mechanical creaking or grinding noises, but there is a risk of catching a toe, foot, hand, or tail under one of the rockers if you are not careful. With the glider, the rise can be more smooth, but the mechanical parts need to be covered up and the decorating options are not as great because there is upholstery on the chair. A traditional rocker is plain and you can dress it up as much or as little as you want.
Children can enjoy rocking chairs right alongside their parents. Child size rocking chairs designed for safety and fun are easy to acquire. You can get a wooden rocking chair for kids in the same style as traditional adult rocking chairs, and in a wide range of colors. For very little ones, toddler rockers are available for sale. These chairs have special kid-safe paint, for when those little ones like to chew, rounded corners to prevent accidents, and a low seat so that toddlers can touch the ground when they rock.
