A hammock chair is associated mostly with outdoor use. However, the ever changing weather makes people realize that indoor hammock chair is a good idea.
Watching the world go by indoors in a hammock chair provides a little bit of luxury and a cozy place of retreat. Outdoor hammock chair though is still a best nestling place for the tired and wandering soul.
Where to hang a hammock chair
Hanging a hammock chair is laborious and you need to have a complete set of tools. A good location should be considered whether you want it indoors or outdoors. Just keep in mind that the hammock chair should rotate or swing freely without hitting walls if indoors or any obstacle such as tree, porch or beam if outdoors.
Hanging a Hammock with No Stand
If the hammock does not have a stand, hanging it is not a problem. A little improvisation shall do the trick. The following are some of the styles in hanging a hammock that could be done when there is no stand available or you just want the thrill of it.
But first we give you a better understanding of the hammock’s basic parts; we enumerate here its 3 simple components or parts:
•Eyes: The loops at the end of the ropes or strings of the hammock.
•Bed: The part where you sit or lay down.
•Scale Lines: The strings or ropes that connect the bed from the eyes.
Here are two of the most popular styles of hanging a hammock chair which could be done anywhere you want as long as you have something to hang it into.
1. Without Spread Bar
When hanging a hammock swing style without spread bar allows you to rock/swing back and forth while you relax. Hanging this way, you will need two anchors on which to hang the eyes of the hammock or one sturdy tree branch if you want it outside.
If inside the house, you have to drill two hooks right into the ceiling beam. Using knot (tying the rope to the hook) or carabiner, attach the rope into the eyes of the hanging hammock and make sure the bed is leveled.
If you want the hammock to be hung from a tree, just wrap the two ropes tightly over the tree branch and then fasten the rope to the eyes of the hammock also using a carabiner or a knot.
2. With Spread Bar
Using the same techniques, when you want a spread bar into the hammock, follow the steps above but only you have to use a single anchor instead of two.
