The days are getting shorter and cooler. Suddenly, you find yourself putting away the patio furniture, covering up the gas grill, and putting up the backyard hammock until next year. Paints a sad picture, doesn’t it? Fortunately, no matter what climate you’re living in, you can enjoy the relaxing benefits of a hammock in your home all year round.
If your idea of a hammock is a bunch of nylon strings tied between two trees, you don’t know what you’re missing. Hammocks come in a variety of sizes and materials. Hammocks with their own stands mean they can be set up anywhere in your home. Beautiful quilted hammocks are too nice to keep outdoors. They make a great addition to any sunroom or cozy nook in your house.
Not only can you use your hammock for a quick siesta in the afternoon, you can sleep in a hammock every night. The Venezuelans have been doing it for centuries! Imagine drifting to sleep, rocking softly back and forth, enveloped in a comfy and secure cocoon.
Perhaps you aren’t ready to dedicate and entire room to a hammock, or live in small quarters such as an apartment or condo. A hammock chair is the perfect solution. You can enjoy the same comfort and design without taking up as much space. Hammocks and hammock chairs come in a variety of styles. One is sure to make a statement in your living space.
Once you’ve chosen the perfect hammock or hammock chair for your space, you have to decide how you want to hang it. One option is to simply go with a hammock stand. It’s uncomplicated to put up and requires no special tools or skills. However, if you don’t like the look of a hammock stand or want a more permanent feel, consider wall or ceiling mounting your hammock or hammock chair with special hardware. It requires a little more know-how, but can be accomplished with a few simple tools and a stud finder.
The fun doesn’t stop when your hammock is securely in place. Hammock pillows, cushions and other accessories can help you truly personalize your hammock space and experience. Pillows and cushions are a great way to change up the look of your hammock or hammock chair and make it extra cozy. The next time you are considering remodeling a room or purchasing new furniture, remember that you can bring the leisure you enjoy outside with your hammock right into your own home for use all year round.
