There is no denying the greatness of a hammock. When presented with the option of a hanging porch swing, an Adirondack chair, a tire swing, or a hammock, a hammock always wins, right?

So why limit your hammock enjoyment to the backyard? Here are three reasons you should put a hammock inside the house — more specifically, in your kitchen.

1. They’re super comfortable.

Not only do hammocks beat out Adirondack chairs and other loungers, but they also win when compared to bar stools and dining chairs. Sure, you can’t exactly pull a hammock up to a breakfast table, but you can climb into one to sip your morning coffee (use a lidded tumbler or travel mug!) or nibble on a muffin while you read the paper.

2. There are no bees or mosquitos in the kitchen.

That is, there usually are no bees or mosquitos in the kitchen. Even if there are some bees or mosquitos in your kitchen, chances are there are less in there than in your backyard. You can crank up the air conditioning (or point a fan your way) and slide into your kitchen hammock, and you won’t have to worry about being attacked by pesky insects.

3. It will add a level of fun to your kitchen.

If you’re a kid at heart, we can think of no better way to add some playfulness to your kitchen. Except maybe a slide. Can you add a slide to your kitchen?

Bonus reason: Indoor hammocks are trendy.

We don’t usually care what’s trendy or what the Kardashians are up to, but for what it’s worth, Kendall Jenner hung up a hammock in her condo’s breakfast nook.
