10 Cool & Quirky Places to Hang a Hammock Indoors.

Lounging under the sun with the cool breeze on your skin is one of the most likely places to unwind in a hammock.

But the garden isn’t the only place to find ultimate relaxation as you sway! Empty living room corners, blank spaces in the library, and an open stretch of window can be some of the best places to lounge in a hammock indoors.

If you want to bring a taste of the Caribbean home with you and recreate that sleepy, carefree feeling in the comfort of your home, we can help!

Here’s our list of 10 cool and quirky places to hang a hammock indoors that’ll bring the Caribbean inside!

1. In the Bedroom

One of the most ideal places to hang a hammock indoors is in the bedroom. Either in an empty corner, by the window, above your bed, or instead of your bed will be awesome for those lazy Sundays at home. Simply slip a rug underneath and scatter a few plants nearby, and you’ve bagged yourself the sweetest reading chair!

2. By the Living Room Couch

Is there a vacant space next to your living room couch that you don’t know what to do with? Or do you struggle to find enough chairs when family or friends come to visit? Fixing Hammock Chairs to the ceiling by the couch could be just the thing you need! It could become your new reading chair, the extra seat for a friend, a meditation spot, or just a fashion accessory to make your living room more boho!

3. In a Games Room

Ditch the sofa in a games room! Who needs it when the kids could lounge on a hammock while playing video games instead? It’ll take up less space than a comforter and, if you get Jumbo Caribbean Hammocks, the kids can share it with their friends on game nights! Plus, if your kids are younger and take frequent naps, you can use it as a comfortable place to relax with them during sleepy time.


4. On the Porch

It’s not technically inside, but hanging a hammock on your porch is one of the best ways to feel like you’re living in an American movie! Gently swinging above the decking on a warm evening after work can be one of the best places to relax and unwind. Plus, if you ever get locked out of the house, you (or your kids) will have a place to rest until someone gets home!

5. In a Hallway Corner

If you have a big upstairs hallway with a corner you just don’t know what to do with, hanging a hammock can offer the perfect solution! It’s a great way to make use of all available space and maximize the “zones” you and your family have to escape the chaos. If the corner is by a window, this is even better! You can relax as you watch the birds in the trees. It’ll look good and feel good!

6. Under the Stairs

Not everyone has a cupboard under the stairs. If your stairwell is exposed underneath, this could be the perfect place to hang an indoor Hammock Chair. Provided the ceiling is strong enough, you can fix the hammock to the higher part of the ceiling. It’ll create the perfect spot to put on your shoes before you head out the door!

7. Under a Bunk Bed

Hanging a hammock under a strong, sturdy bunk bed is one of the easiest ways to make a kids’ bedroom look cool! Your kids could use it while playing video games, chilling on their laptops, or doing homework. It’s also a great social spot for when they have their friends over. While their friend may not feel too comfortable using it as a bed during sleepovers, they’ll have that option if they fancy trying something new!

8. Across a Big Window

Having the sun kissing your skin as you sway is the Caribbean way to enjoy a hammock! If you’ve got a big window in your hallway or bedroom, attaching a hammock from one wall to the other can create the ultimate sweet spot for chilling out. If you don’t have a window big enough, a hammock chair in the orangery or along the back patio doors can work just as well!


9. In the Library

What better place to read and relax in a hammock than in the library? Fixing a hammock between two walls or dangling a Hammock Chair from the ceiling next to your bookshelves can create the perfect reading hideaway. You could spend hours swaying gently and getting lost in a good book. When your eyes get tired and you start to feel sleepy, no one will even notice if you drift off!

10. In a Finished Basement

Provided your basement isn’t a uber-creepy place to be, setting up a hammock down there could be an enjoyable and practical hanging spot! You could get some shut-eye while you’re waiting for the washing machine to finish. Or you could use it as a comfy place to sit while you’re sorting through the laundry. If you have gym equipment down in your basement, it could also offer a nice meditation spot to cool you down after a workout.


There are so many cool and quirky places to hang a hammock indoors. As long as your walls, ceilings, and fixings are secure, you can set up a hammock almost anywhere in your home to create a pleasant place to relax. All you need to do is sit back, put your feet up, and enjoy!
