Hammocks are the latest trend in outdoor furniture that can be used anywhere. They’re super comfortable and easy to set up, which is great for those who live in small spaces or don’t have a yard!
A hammock is an excellent way to relax outdoors with your partner or catch some zzzs after a long day at work. The best part: they come in all shapes and sizes so you’ll find one perfect for any occasion!

An Excuse to Finish That Book
We all have books we have not finished or books we want to read. This twist on the traditional hammock will allow you to get some serious reading and be comfortable while doing it.

What Should I Look for When Buying a Hammock?
When buying a hammock with spreader bars be aware that they feel unstable and not really the way hammocks were meant to be used. The fabric of a hammock is designed to envelop you and give you body support from all sides. Allowing you to totally relax and not feel as though you will fall out.
This is doubly true when you are considering sharing with someone else neither of you will be able to move with the hammock spread out over spreader bars.
You should also consider what fabric is suitable for you and your area. Parachute fabric dries easily whereas a cotton or cotton blend will not.
When buying a hammock consider if you will be taking it on camping adventures and buy one that you can extra’s for and adapts. For example mosquito netting, sleeping pads for warmth, pillow, or wet weather covers.
