What kind of hammock is right for me?


Before you head out on the hunt, think about what you will use the hammock for — and how many people will be using it. If you are looking forward to sprawling out with your kids or significant other, a larger hammock bed or swing is the best option. On the other hand, if you prefer it to be a getaway spot for some quality "me" time, then a hammock chair or Cacoon is ideal.

What material is best for a hammock?


Since it will be spending most of its time outdoors (at least in most cases), your piece should be waterproof and weatherproof. Durable options include fabric, rope, cotton or quilted, though the material you end up with is also dictated by your style.

Where should I place my hammock?


Most homeowners place hammocks outdoors in a variety of locations, depending on the type. Hanging hammocks and chairs can be mounted from a covered porch, deck or patio, as long as there is a ceiling to hang it from. These also work well indoors, if you want a fun swing or Cacoon for your kids to enjoy. Hammock beds are ideal for placing between trees in the backyard or putting on a stand for your patio. Wherever it goes, be sure it is properly installed and offers shade to ensure optimal relaxation (and napping).
