What is a hammock net for the home?

It’s often confused with a trampoline or a hammock. Let’s say it’s a cousin of the trampoline for its large surface area, without the bouncy side, or of the hammock for its comfort. But above all, it’s a design that comes directly from the world of boating.

From the world of sailing, the hammock net has retained its sleek elegance, its sporting and travelling spirit and its great practicality. On a catamaran, the hammock net connects the two hulls in the same way as the house net, connecting different areas of your home. During a stopover, the catamaran’s hammock net provides an extra space where you can rest and relax while taking in the scenery. In the same way, installing a hammock net in your home creates a unique and original space. The feeling of being suspended instantly gives you a sense of relaxation and letting go. A hammock net is a new space for reading, relaxing, watching a film or daydreaming. A design element in its own right, the hammock net is a refuge from routine, which explains its success. Feelnets, the specialist in made-to-measure hammock nets, offers you a whole range of hammock nets adapted to your particular needs.

The hammock nets can be installed:


  • Interior Mezzanine Net: A home hammock net can be installed as an interior mezzanine, creating a suspended openwork floor, ideal for adding a space for leisure or relaxation while allowing light to pass through. For more information, see our Feelnets guide How to install a hammock net in a home.
  • Ceiling space: Installing a hammock net can compensate for a lack of ceiling height, transforming an often underused space into a leisure or relaxation area. As we explain in our article Mezzanine netting in the attic: extending your home at lower cost (and with much less work), a hammock net can be stretched in an attic or over a void, creating a secure and original space, while allowing light to circulate.
  • In a stairwell: by exploiting the cut-outs made in the landing and the space created for the staircase.
  • Outdoors: To enjoy the outdoors, choose a suitable location, such as a garden or terrace, to install a hammock net. This can create a unique outdoor relaxation area.
  • Children’s bedroom: A hammock net can also be a creative solution for a child’s bedroom, providing an original and safe play area.

Can I install a round, square or rectangular hammock net in my home?

Yes, you can install a hammock net in any shape you like. At Feelnets, we can meet all your requirements in this area. For more information, see our article Indoor hammock nets for atypical spaces: is it possible to install a net in a round, triangular space with more than four sides?


Can a hammock net be installed anywhere and on any surface?

No, you can’t install a hammock net on a flimsy support such as plasterboard, for example, but rather on more solid materials such as brick, concrete, stone, wood or metal. For more information, you can consult our guide: In which framework can a made-to-measure hammock net be installed?


Is it possible to install a hammock net if the space to be enclosed is not four-sided, but only three-sided?

Yes, it is possible to install a hammock net even if the space to be enclosed has only three sides. However, it is important to note that fixing on all four sides is recommended to ensure secure installation. In some cases, however, this depends on the specific configuration of the space and the anticipated load on the hammock net. Other solutions are possible, such as fixing a bar or a metal cable. Don’t hesitate to ask us for advice.

Can I install my hammock net myself or do I need a professional?

You can install a hammock net yourself. However, this also depends on your DIY skills, the complexity of the installation and the configuration of your space.

If you’re not comfortable with DIY or if the installation seems complex, it may be wise to call in a professional. Feelnets has the largest network of hammock net installers in France who will be able to help you find a solution tailored to your needs.


What mesh size should I choose for my hammock net?

At Feelnets, we offer two mesh sizes, 13 × 13 mm and 30 × 30 mm for hammock nets. Wider meshes let in light but are also thicker, giving a false ceiling effect when viewed from below. What’s more, they’re not very comfortable for children’s little feet.

If you want to let light through from the room above, opt for a 30 × 30 mm hammock net. If this isn’t necessary, and the room has no light, choose the more comfortable 30 × 30 mm.

If you’re still unsure, take a look at our table comparing the different sizes of hammock net mesh:

Is the hammock net safe and a good solution for children?

The hammock net is a perfect solution for children. It’s a perfectly safe play area that they’ll really enjoy. As we wrote in our article Why the hammock net is a brilliant idea for your children, the hammock net is a reassuring, comfortable space. In a house, the hammock net evokes a tree house where children can invent all sorts of stories and dream.


What weight can a hammock net withstand?

The load-bearing capacity of a house hammock net depends on the type of net, its dimensions and the materials used. In general, hammock nets are designed to withstand significant loads. EN 1263-1 standard hammock nets, for example, are suitable for a variety of applications, including mezzanines. At Feelnets, our hammock nets can withstand 200 kg per square metre.

In conclusion, the use of hammock nets for mezzanines offers a solution that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. These hammock nets, installed between two storeys of living space or in voids over living rooms, create stylish, secure mezzanines.

Whether you want to optimise space in a loft room, create a high partition or simply add a contemporary touch, hammock nets for mezzanines can be adapted to a variety of interior configurations.

By adopting this leading trend, you can enhance your interior space while enjoying the practical and aesthetic benefits offered by hammock nets for mezzanines.
