What types of rocking chairs are there?
Nowadays, there are many types of rocking chairs, including traditional, glider, spring, swivel and reclining rockers.
Traditional rockers rock on curved legs, and are renowned for being both cheap and durable.
Glider rockers use swivels and levers to recline, and though they might be more expensive than traditional rockers, they also tend to be more comfortable.
Spring rockers operate upon springs inside a box. These are the most durable, but their heavy upholstery frequently drives up the price.
Swivel rockers allow you to spin in your seat, providing you with more comfort and flexibility. With that said, these tend to be expensive.
Finally, reclining rockers come with a reclining feature, and while this makes the chair more comfortable, it also means it is more expensive and less durable than other models.
