How to Hang A Hammock Indoors
A few years ago I bought a hammock in Nicaragua, and have been aching to get it hung up in my loft. It goes perfectly with my bohemian decorating style, and it is a really cool piece to add to the room. Unique pieces of furniture can give rooms character and I really enjoy having different kinds of pieces in the house. The hammock is perfect for lazy day napping and reading, so why not put it in my living room?
First take two heavy duty wall hook screws and set aside.
Next, find two studs in the wall.
Mark a hole in each stud in adjacent walls so the hammock will go across a corner of the room. Take into consideration how much the hammock will stretch so you don't put it too low or too high. We guestimated it to be about 5 or 6 feet for my particular hammock.
Drill a hole in each spot.
Then screw in the hooks.
Hang your hammock and test it before use!
