While the idea of having a swing indoors might seem like a lofty idea, it’s much more attainable than you’d expect. Regarding height requirements, almost all child sized swings and suspended furniture can fit into a standard 8' ceiling.
As for structural support, the joists and beams in most ceilings are strong enough to bear the furniture’s weight. For safety, it is important to ensure the swing or suspended piece is connected to the ceiling with strong rope, cable, or chain and at least two screws with eyehooks.
Before installing your swing, check in with a contractor, architect or engineer to be sure that you’ll be swinging safely!
