When I was a teenager, I hung a hammock in my room. I don’t know how I got the gumption to do it, but I’d brought a simple cotton hammock back from Mexico and somehow found a pair of strong hammock hooks meant to screw into wood studs. Which is what I did: a hook on opposite walls so the hammock hung at an angle, with no obstructions.
My friends and I spent hours in that hammock, one or the other take turns swinging and hanging out. It was a joy. When I left home, I took the hooks with me, hoping to find another space with beams strong enough to hold a hammock. I still have them. Although that’s not to say I haven’t continued to put up hammocks here and there, in a variety of ways.
Hammocks can, of course, be tied between two trees, or from one patio railing to another, which I did with the small jute hammock I brought back from the Amazon.
…we wonder if you could use these hooks in sheet rock, with molly bolts and possible wood cladding between the studs (consult with someone about it!)…
…you can always use a hammock stand, if you’ve got the room…bought or… …DIY. Check out this handsome one that uses 4 x 4s and special brackets. Also available here.
