Hammocks for two people

Two Person Hammocks

Everyone enjoys the idea of swaying in a hammock on the patio or their backyard.

But what if you want to share that experience with someone else? 

What if the idea of cuddling in a soft cotton hammock is appealing for both of you?

Your idea can be shared but you will need to make sure that you have a swing that will support more than one person.

You are going to need a hammock for two people or often referred to as a double or a two person hammock.

More people means more support is needed.

Along with it you will need the support mechanism, whether that is two trees or a stand with the proper rope suspension system to handle the additional weight.

When you are considering a double hammock one of the most important elements is the actual laying surface area.

Which is how much room is there for you and your loved one that is not cords, ropes, chains or other support devices? 

The actual area that you can use to relax on is the most important factor when you are considering sharing with another person.

Double hammocks allow for more than one person.

Consider a bed if it is a single chances are (unless you are really small people) two people are not going to be able to stretch out and be comfortable even in the cuddle mode. 

The same is going to apply to the hammock surface area; the more you have the more comfortable you will be sharing it with someone else.

The final consideration is what kind of support will you need to hang the hammock? 

Will it be two trees or a stand?

If so you need to make sure that either will be able to handle the combined weight of two people and maybe the family pet if they decide to join in the fun.
