18 Indoor Hammocks to Take a Relaxing Snooze In Any Time

Hammocks are typically used outside, but that doesn’t mean you can’t break the rules a bit and bring them inside by adding one to your bedroom, living room, sunroom, or even your attic! If you have the space for it and the tools to hang one securely, then why not? If you’re not yet convinced it’ll look good, maybe the following examples will change your mind about it.

By the Window

There’s no better place to put a hammock than beside a huge window, if you have one! Check out this elegant example from Remodelista in a bright room that has a library feel to it. Another from Design Sponge features a hammock by two large windows in a modern living room.

Peaceful and White

Hammocks come in all different colors and designs, but sometimes, you just can’t go wrong with keeping it white — or at least netural. Here’s a simple cream-colored hammock added to a bedroom at the Hotel Daniel in Vienna, featured on Remodelista.
