It all began with a new kind of camping. A few years ago, a friend of mine who resembles Charlie Brown with his huge bald head, got me interested in hammock camping. Light, easy, and comfortable, hammock camping also allows on to fit a chihuahua nicely between one’s legs. My children and I enjoyed our hammocks so much we decided to bring that same fun to our living room.
Tips To Hammock Furnishing
- Hooks: If you are drilling into wood or metal, you shouldn’t have a problem. Large, thick eye hooks are available at your local hardware store and will hold to to three hundred pounds. With drywall, you are going to have to create an additional support in the attic. Check out this Instagram video showing examples of different supports and enjoy that trip to the attic. Should be fun.
- Placement: Think layers. Hammocks convert a small space into endless reclining possibilities. Some hang lower to the ground while others can droop higher, out of the way. When the party goes late and the couches get filled up quickly, bust out those hammocks and find everyone a spot. It’ll look like a scene out of Gilligan’s Island.
- Other Ideas: What else can you hang on your porch or living room? Outdoor swings make beautiful sitting areas in a living room. How about a wooden swing filled with pillows? Single sitting hammocks can hang in the corner and offer a comfortable place to read a good book. Be creative.
- Hanging Beds: While not everyone may wish to sleep in a hammock every night, it’s not so bad. A hammock needs to be taut enough to support the back. Think about a way to hang your bed like the hotels of Tulum, Mexico. The mattresses are supported on plywood and hang freely from four hooks. This allows the bed to swing to and fro with the Caribbean breeze. Or whatever kind of breeze you may have.
