Hammocks seem to be a quintessential signal of summer and are adored throughout the world for being a guiltless relaxation tool. Despite their lack of arch support (in most models anyways) many people both young and old feel incredible comfort and ease when wrapped in the luxurious netting. A welcome addition to any new home, hammocks help transform your outdoor space into a relaxation retreat, even if just for a ten minute nap. The only trouble might be sharing the hammock with all the members of your household! Whether you’re after an ultimate tranquility oasis, or a beautiful touch to your backyard, here are some inspiring ways you can incorporate hammocks into your indoor/outdoor space:
The classic hammock with minimal hardware can add colour and beauty to almost any new home. This relaxing sunroom is adorned with elements of rest and playfulness, highlighted by the ultimate symbol of both; the hammock. In a bright yellow and purple stripe, this hammock adds playful beauty and charm to this room and with the ceiling fan positioned directly a top, it is by no doubt a spot for great rest and recharge.
When the outdoor space in your new home lacks the trees or posts to support a hanging hammock, you could consider using a design which is self- supported like this floating bed which can accommodate up to 4 people. The feeling of suspension giving way to swaying in the breeze can still be achieved while feeling sturdy and well supported.
Incorporating a lush hammock into your new home’s outdoor living space can be both a conversation piece and the trophy seat. The playfulness of the hammock can utilized for added seating during gatherings or as a restful retreat when the yard has cleared.
A fully suspended hammock like this can certainly be a focal point in your new home; admired from both inside and outside. The flat bed support ensures maximum comfort, allowing hours of lounge time.
