Can you hang an indoor hammock in an apartment?

If you have been thinking about getting one, but have doubts about whether it can be done if you are leasing or renting, the answer to this question is YES! Your hammock swing chair or full body hammock can go in any bedroom, room, porch or balcony.

Before you install your hammock indoors, make sure there is enough space for it to move freely. Next, with the help of a stud finder, you need to find a stud behind the drywall ceiling or wall, drill a few holes on the ceiling joists and voila!

IMPORTANT: If your lease states you can place holes in your wall, most likely there should be no problem hanging a hammock.  You can always confirm with the landlord. If you don’t know about specific guidelines in your lease, you should reach out to your landlord and ask. In this case, it’s better to ask for permission first as opposed to apologizing later, especially when it involves your lease agreement.

FINAL STEPS: Once you are ready, hang it up, relax and enjoy the comfort of an indoor hammock or swing chair. Whenever you are ready to move out, just patch up the holes with some spackle (a compound specifically made to cover cracks and holes in walls). Use a putty knife to cover the holes in the drywall and add a fresh coat of paint . That's it! The ceiling or walls will look as good as new.


GOOD NEWS: However, if for any reason you find out that you are not able to do any structural altercation in your apartment or rental home (like drilling holes to add hooks), you aren’t out of luck. All modern hammocks can be used indoors with floor hammock stands to suspend them. Hammock stands are easy to move around and designed to be used with all standard hammocks or chair swings.

Ready to make the move?  An indoor hammock chair or hammock in your apartment or rental home might be just what you need to relax, unwind and enjoy a good book.
