Hanging a Hammock Indoors

Posted by on

Outdoors are the not the only domain of the hammock.  They can be equally well enjoyed inside.  Whether it's a hammock chair in the lounge for watching TV or a king size cotton hammock in the bedroom for a great night sleep

Indoor Hammock

Setting up a hammock indoors is a reasonably easy job.  Basically, you need a couple of strong wall attachments for the hammock to fix too.  These can vary on the type of wall you have, brick/wood etc.  For wood, you can use something like a screw eye hook which can usually be screwed directly into a beam or solid wall joist by hand, or with a small pilot hole.  Space these out approx 4m apart and at a height so when the hammock is hung it will at its lowest point come to rest between your hips and thighs. This is usually somewhere between 1.5m - 2m.

For a concrete wallyou will likely need a specialised concrete attachment, something like a dynabolt but preferably with an eye hook on the end.  Check at your local hardware store, they are likely to have a range of suitable fixtures and fittings and can provide good advice.  Just ensure what you get is capable of holding your weight, and so is the wall!  We don't want you going and pulling your house down.

With the wall fittings in place, you can then easily tie up your hammock when in use, and simply untie and remove when you want it out of the way. Using a wall hook is good for this as you can just take down one side and hook both loops over the one hook, keeping the hammock against the wall and out of the way when not in use.

If you are hanging a chair hammock indoors, you simply need one strong ceiling beam to attach a fitting to and hang from.

So give it a try, find a spot inside and you can enjoy your hammock all year round. Then grab a book, your laptop and blanket, curl up and gently sway away the hours.
