A Swing In Your Child's Room: Would You Dare?

Are we taking things to the next level when we start talking about hanging swings inside the house? Perhaps. But how cool would that be?! After finding myself a bit intrigued by the idea, I thought it might be fun to track down some swinging inspiration -- like the indoor tire swing pictured above. Why not bring a bit of the playground inside

See more below:

This setup looks pretty basic but still manages to be pretty. I'm ready to sit down for a good swing to give it a test!

Fun, right? You can't go wrong with a circle seat. 

It's a swing, it's a chair, it's awesome.  

Tall ceilings are probably a must -- and of course avoid windows and walls for maximum swinging fun. 

You can literally swing from the rafters here. This one is a bit like a trapeze, yes? 

So there you have it. Swings. Inside the house. For your kids!

I love the idea, maybe not so much in the bedroom, but more in a children's playroom. That being said, when my children become teenagers, I wouldn't say no to a swinging chair seat ;)

My children spend their days inventing their own creative ways to cause extensive damage to themselves and/or our house. I don't think I need to make it easier for them to do so.

I love it, but don't have the room for it.

I agree with jessie when they are little definitely! But not teens. I can see our boys causingajor damage. Lol

We just put one in this weekend. They are great for kids with ASD and sensory disorders, like my son has. My 2 year old loves it as well and it's great when it too yuck out to go to the park.

No- but my kids are a little on the clumsy side. They'd hang themselves!

My daughter enjoys launching off of settings way to much. I think the urge to land on the bed would be to much to handle, cute idea though.
