You know, hammocks have been around for thousands of years. The early Maya civilization invented the hammocks for sleeping, and even today in most parts of the world, hammocks are predominantly used as a sleeping mechanism. Most people in the U.S. though use hammocks for comfort and leisure, myself included. I have a couple hammocks I use frequently, if not everyday. I’ve opted to sleep on my hammock instead of my bed on numerous occasions, and don’t make it a daily habit because I prefer to sleep with my wife on our bed!
Hammocks rank high up there, as one of the absolute best things ever! Very few things beat unwinding for a long, undisturbed snooze in a yard hammock. If you haven’t had the experience then you’re definitely missing out. If you’re in that situation I’ve got a couple pointers to give when you’re looking to buy a hammock for your home decor.
Overall, the ideal hammock is the most comfy hammock. A lot of people in the U.S. are primarily accustomed to the popular white cord hammocks, that have been mainstream here in the U.S. but aren’t the ideal hammocks when it comes to comfort. This type of hammock makes for easier tipping, it’s harder to get in and out of, and can also leave you with rope marks, making your body look like a “human waffle”. There are a lot of different hammock types and styles, and each one provides it’s own unique set of advantages, so be sure to explore your options when looking to buy a hammock.
Look for a big hammock. If comfort is what you’re looking for then I think that the more room you have the more comfort you feel. With a larger hammock you also have the option to share your hammock with another person, and still comfortable. Instead of having to buy two hammocks, you can buy one and still be just fine. Trying to fit 3, 4, 5 people is when things really start getting interesting. =D I prefer big hammocks, and think they’re a lot more comfortable, but the proper hammock will be great.
I definitely look for design and style when choosing my hammocks. Having an eye-catching hammock is a fantastic touch to any outdoor or home decor setting. Don’t try to look for the cheapest option out there, because it’s like they always say: ‘You get what you pay for’. You want a hammock that’ll look good, but is high quality and comfortable as well. There are all types of styles, and colors of hammocks, so look for one that expresses your personality.
