Hammocks are popular because you can relax and swing yourself into a nice afternoon nap. Hanging beds extend that idea on a larger scale as they can give you much more room to stretch out and share it as well. Unlike hammocks, hanging beds suspend from the ceiling which gives two great advantages – they are space saving and cleaning under beds becomes a non-issue!
The whole bed can be raised right to the ceiling leaving the room seemingly empty. This is a great feature for those who live in small spaces and need to have multi-functional rooms. The hanging bed concept can also be applied to outdoor spaces like the veranda where some people who live in very hot climates might choose to sleep for comfort. Getting your own hanging bed is a swinging idea! – Via
