3 Crucial Questions to Decide the Right Hammock for Purchase

“Which Hammock Stand Material Will Please Me?”

First, locate the place where you want to base your hammock! 

Second, decide on the right material that fits the ambiance!

Wood Hammock Stands

  • Wood stands come in a huge diversity of designs thanks to the oil or stain type they have.
  • The best wood stands out there are made of rigid and moisture-resistant woods.
  • Choose a dark-toned wood for the feeling of support and brighter shade for a relaxing and happy vibe, but it’s all about your preference.

Metal Hammock Stands 

  • Steel is the most popular material for metal stands.
  • The rust-proof coating is the most ideal feature for outdoor use. 
  • Steel hammock stands are really made for a bolder look.
  • A metal stand is a better option than wood when it comes to adjusting mainly for wear and tear issues.

“What Size of Hammock Stand Do I Really Want?”


  • Most stands are designed as 4 feet wide with a flexible length.
  • If you’ve already got the hammock at home, add 2 more feet to the hammock’s length and that’s the size of the stand you want.
  • Common lengths for hammock stands are 5 feet, 9.5 feet, 14.5 feet, and 15 feet.

Weight Capacity

  • Are you using it on your own or with someone else? Choose a stronger and more durable base if you want to fit 2 adults at once.
  • Most hammock stands can bear a load of 350 to 500 pounds. 
  • Choose a double hammock stand if you aim for a heavier duty weight base.

“Which Features are the Most Important to Me?”

A right stand is extremely crucial to help the hammock function properly. Here are the 3 most common features to ask for when shopping for the right hammocks.

Spreader Bars or No Spreader Bars?

  • Are you going to nap on your hammock every now and then? If yes, choose the one with spreader bars!
  • Are you aiming for a “cocoon” kind of rest? Then the one without spreader bars allows the hammock to cradle you.


  • Many hammocks with stands today come flexible to be lengthened or shortened to fit your hammock size.
  • Adjust the height of your hammock with an included S-hook.


  • Lightweight hammock stands made of aluminum are considered best for camping and travel.
  • Go for the ones with lockable wheels so you can move them around with a snap of a finger!
