Everybody enjoys jumping on a trampoline, but all good things come to an end. The question is what to do when your trampoline is wrecked beyond repair?
The best solution is to turn it into a circular swing bed! You might have come across those luxurious swing beds hanging from ceilings or trees. We all know how expensive they are. This is a great way to have your own without spending a fortune!
To save money, make use of every part of your trampoline, including the ring, springs, and mat. Cover it with sheets to make it comfortable. You can also create an outdoor teepee version by just adding shade from an old tent.
This is a perfect way to relax indoors or out. The best part is that you can design your own recycled trampoline swing bed to match the theme of your home’s interior or outdoor area.

What are the advantages of making a swing bed from recycled trampoline?
1. Relax and unwind
Every summer days are hot and it’s always better to relax outside. But having this weather is also the best season to spend more time with your family outside, gathering together and having snacks or simply relaxing in a comfortable swing bed. Feeling the wind in the morning and cooling off in the evening with this recycled trampoline swing bed is much more comfortable than lying on a plain sofa or even with your traditional porch swing.

Although porch swings are also popular for their relaxing and playing features, a traditional porch swing won’t give you the best way to relax while lying on it, unlike the recycled trampoline swing bed where you can just sit back and relax and even lets you rest your back, stretch and fall asleep on it. Since it’s larger and wider, you can cuddle and spend more time with your friends or family while swinging your day away.
