Glider rockers are common in many homes. Glider rockers do not take up a lot of space and they offer more comfortable seating and generally provide a smoother movement than conventional rocking chairs. And a glider rocker is more stable and harder to tip over than conventional rocking chairs. Because they do not take up a lot of room, glider rockers are perfect for nurseries and living rooms. Most glider rockers are made from a simple wood base that is outfitted with a series of cushions and pillows. Your glider rocker will be one of the most used pieces of furniture in the room, so it certainly makes sense to purchase the right one for you.
