There are so many reasons to buy a hammock for your home, all of them wonderful. What if you live in an apartment or in a townhouse with little or no yard? Is there an alternative for you? Yes - these attractive porch hammocks and hammock chairs will fit into even the smallest of spaces while providing relaxation and comfort.
There are a variety of choices for your porch or balcony even if the space is tight. First, you should evaluate how much space you have to work with. Look at the descriptions of each of our hammocks and hammock chairs to see what the maximum and minimum hanging distances are. This is the distance from one mounting ring to the other from which the hammock or hammock chair will be suspended. Hammocks will usually be suspended from two separate points, while a hammock chair is often mounted from one central point. For the smallest of spaces, a hammock chair is often your best choice, and is just as comfortable as a standard hammock, with a surprising amount of room to "stretch out" across the width of the chair.
If you have drywall or wood mounting surfaces, our standard hardware will work fine for mounting. If the roof is masonry, however, you will need special masonry mounting components, which can be found easily at most hardware or home improvement stores.
Hammocks without spreader bars take up much less space than those with spreader bars, and are versatile. Especially nice are the Mayan and Brazilian hammocks, which are not only roomy, but colorful and stylish as well. The Mayan and Brazilian hammocks are available in either cotton or nylon open weave. The ropes of the weave will cradle you in softness as you admire the view from your deck. If you decide on a hammock chair, most of them will work well on a porch or balcony. Two varieties to consider are the Mayan hammock chair, which is made of the traditional cotton or nylon open weave, or an air chair, which is made of a durable nylon canvas. The air chair is designed for perfect total body support to provide comfort and proper spinal alignment.
Any of these choices will add a level of comfort to your deck or balcony that you would never expect in a confined space.
