If you want to buy a hammock, one of the first things you must decide is if you want to invest in rope hammocks or fabric hammocks. There are advantages to both, and your decision will ultimately boil down to personal preference, environmental conditions and budget. If you're ready to enjoy all the benefits of owning a hammock just like the ones you find in tropical resorts and vacation homes, let's get started.

One of the most important considerations when shopping for a backyard hammock is the weather in your area. For a great part of the country, hammocks are ideal for the summer and fall months and must be placed in storage for the harsh winter months and the rainy days of spring. Some people even opt to hang their hammocks on the front porch or inside their homes for year-round use. Whether you choose rope or fabric hammocks, you can count on one thing: comfort.

The Advantages of Fabric Hammocks

When it comes to investing in fabric hammocks, you have a number of different choices. You can choose from a variety of synthetic fabrics that tend to be easier to clean and maintain than their cotton counterparts. The cotton hammocks tend to be softer to the touch and often last longer because they are made of higher quality components. When you opt for a hammock that has a single bed surface rather than a mesh surface, you find you tend to get more back support. The rope varieties tend to be more forgiving and also tend to hold more weight.

If you want to buy a hammock made of synthetic materials or cotton, you can also choose from a number of different styles, colors and patterns. You can choose hammocks with authentic Mayan designs and other patterns that are reflective of the communities where this fine furniture originated. You can also find a number of hammock accessories like pillows, neck rolls, and canopies to match your hammock bed.
