Some types of hammocks, such as Brazilian and Mayan hammocks, are hung directly from trees, posts, ceiling joists etc, however, other hammocks have to be attached to a hammock stand to make them useable. You can buy these types of hammocks in packages, and the stand and hammock will come together, ready to be set up. If you have found yourself in need of a stand, however, then you'll need to know if your hammock has "spreader bars" or not.
A rope hammock is the first thing most people think of, when picturing a hammock. Rope hammocks offer the most traditional look. They are usually made from cotton or polyester rope. They are very durable, don't require much maintenance and cost less than other types. A big advantage of a rope hammock is that it "breathes", letting you get the most benefit from breezes on a hot day. Rope hammocks are reasonably comfortable, but the rope might leave impressions on your skin. Hammocks with smaller spaces between the ropes are more comfortable.
Hammocks are generally available in two main types of cord. Nylon and cotton, and often they are a combination of both. A nylon hammock is usually just that, 100% cotton. Whereas a cotton hammock will often be made so the body, the part you lie in is cotton and the arms/ends of the hammock where the weight is taken is made from nylon. This is done so to create a stronger more durable hammock while still giving you the added benefit of extra comfort from the cotton cord.
Joining the two concepts of "stationary" and "hammock" together may appear to be the most counterintuitive suggestion. This is especially true because the stereotypical hammock that people often think about is one that swings between two trees or posts. However, a stationary hammock, otherwise known as a four-point hammock, is in fact the most famous of the kinds of hammock and is used often when camping or lazing around at home.
