What We Love
Design for Small Spaces
Designed specifically for small spaces, this is the perfect choice to go for if you do not have much floor space to play around.
Indeed, its small footprint is perhaps the very first thing you will notice when you first lay your eyes upon this swivel glider rocker.
Let us take a moment first to examine its measurements:
As you can see, the overall width of the chair is only 26.5 inches.
When the standard ranges between 28-31 inches, that is pretty impressive a space-saving design we would have to say, which is why it is regarded as the best glider for small space.
Really, do not underestimate what a few inches of difference it will make - at the very least, it gives you the option of having a glider when you think you will have to make do with just any chair in the house.
Incidentally, its seat width is less than 20 inches. While this small rocking chair for nursery may not be a glider for the plus size, we wouldn't say it is ostensibly for the petite only.
Of course, it will fit better if you're on the small side, but we have users testifying how even their 6'5" husband sits perfectly comfortably in it. We'd say if you are on the average size, there shouldn't be any problem in terms of fit.
Multiple Motions, Quiet Movements
Of course, the Kenwood is not all about its small size only. This is a swivel glider rocking chair, meaning it is not just a rocking chair or glider.
With a base that combines gliding with rocking and swivelling simultaneously, you get to control the motions as your baby drifts to sleep.
Glide forward and backward, or swivel 360 degrees for a gentle and unique experience - it's all up to you.
What we like is that it performs all these movements quietly, whisper quiet in fact because boy, would it be such a nuisance if each time you glide forward (or backward), you hear that annoying squeaking sound.
This is made possible because the Kenwood uses durable steel mechanisms instead of wood so it can ensure there is no creaking noise but quiet movements only .
Comfortable and Plush
Rarely do you see us giving a 5 out of 5 rating for a product, but that is the case for the Delta Children Kenwood Glider. One factor contributing to that is how comfortable this glider is.
Indeed, many parents have commended how this small nursery chair with its padded back and thick cushion make it so comfortable to sit on even for long hours.
Emphasis is not just laid on comfort only. The frame of the Kenwood Glider is given extra attention and is built very sturdily with long-lasting materials to ensure they stand up to time.
It has also undergone rigorous test to meet or exceed all industry safety standards so this is a very safe glider you can rely on.
Available in the following shades, there's bound to be one that suits your interior:
One small detail that we highly appreciate is that the arm rests are made a bit lower than usual.
Some may not know, but this is the perfect height for when you nurse your little one as it allows enough space for you to place a nursing pillow (and in the correct position).
It goes to show that so much thought has gone into the design of the Kenwood, truly understanding what a mother needs in a glider and that, is something we truly value.
And it doesn't take long to assemble. Just slide the back into place and secure it, that's it!
Things to Note
Nevertheless, with such a compact design, there's bound to be some functions that you will have to forego. A footrest is one of it.
No doubt it wouldn't be as comfortable, but that is something to be compromised as this chair is meant to squeeze into even the smallest of nursery or living area - it cannot cater to requiring extra space at the front for the legs.
Another thing you'll have to forego is the reclining feature. Again for the same reasons but this time it is space at the back.
You see, reclining will require you to place the glider a certain distance away from the wall (so that it will have enough space for when you recline backwards) but again, this will defeat the space-saving design that is the purpose of the Kenwood.
Not that it is a common feature in gliders to start with, given so many gliders in the market do not have it but surely the ability to recline adds a few brownie points in the comfort department as you're able to lay at a more comfortable angle.
Nevertheless, it is till a good small glider chair for nursery to have with the rest of its motion controls.
To sum up, the Delta Children Kenwood Glider Swivel Rocker is, without a doubt, one of the best gliders for nursery we have ever came across.
It is small in size but big on both function and style, making it the perfect choice for comfort in compact spaces.
So yes, before you think any chair will do just because you think you don't have the space for a nursery glider, think again. You won't need to sacrifice comfort for floor space anymore with this one, that's for sure.
Even if you are not short on space, it is the perfect choice if you are not into the big bulky type of design. So comfortable and fit into any nook and cranny, it truly is the best swivel glider rocking chair for small spaces!
