Rocking Chair / April 30, 2018 / Reyna Bush
Those who already own a rocker or two don't need to be told of the wonders of this humble type of furniture, but for those of us who have yet to make a rocker a part of our lives, we might benefit from a little information regarding rockers. The first thing to know is that there are rockers to suit all people, even those who find rockers a little hazardous due to the potential for crushed toes (these people will want to go with a glider rocking chair). Wooden rocking chairs are the most popular rockers by far, but there are also wicker rocking chairs as well as plastic rocking chairs. Most people will prefer natural materials, but artificial ones like resin wicker and plastic can make good outdoor rocking chairs that are better able to cope with direct sunlight, rain, etc. When buying a rocker, make sure to get a good feeling for the chair by sitting in it and just rocking for a while.
The relaxation a rocking chair brings is not only for adults but can also benefit children as well. Studies have shown that the back and forth rocking movement provides a calming effect for those who engage in it. There are plenty of rocking chairs out there, so what's the secret to knowing which one is the right one for your child? You only need to know 3 things that will help you select the perfect one. Read on to find out what those three things are.
