Traditionally, hammocks are hung outdoors, but more and more people are bringing them indoors as well. Listed below are a few gorgeous options that are relaxation-ready for your bedroom or porch.
And if you’d rather not fuss with the installation, you can opt for a free-standing swing or a seat that hangs from the ceiling via a piece of hardware. Either way, make sure your securing indoor option to a sturdy framing, and using these tips for outdoor installation:
- Look for healthy hardwood trees at least 38 inches in circumference.
- The trees should be spaced so the hammock is taut when you hang it—a distance at least one foot longer than your hammock should suffice.
- Install eyebolts at least 2 inches into the tree; they should be 3/8 inch or larger in diameter. Place them 5 to 6 feet high so you won’t bottom out.
