You read that right, I mean NETS not NESTS. The pictures are everywhere, and the reading nets look like a fun addition to a home library. Is it a DIY project, or do you need to call in your contractor?
Some suspended nets add a touch of whimsy to a very contemporary design, while maintaining a strictly adult aesthetic. (Source: Egue y Seta designed house in Barcelona, Spain. Photography by VICUGO FOTO.)
Other reading nets are clearly built with children in mind. (Source: Andrew Maynard Architects designed modern extension in family home. Photography by Peter Bennetts.)
Even traditional libraries can accommodate these fun additions. (Source: Spanish Creative Studio playoffice designed ‘reading net’.)
In theory, this shouldn’t be a terribly difficult project. After all, they are just nets suspended from the existing home architecture. Still, there are important safety issues which must be considered.
Instructables has some very, very rudimentary instructions for this bed net on their site. ( www.instructables.com/community/Net-Bed-hammock-style-Mattress-alternative/) While it isn’t exactly the same as the nets featured in the pictures above, it gives the very experienced DIYers a place to start. You still need to decide how many pounds your net will need to support, how to best support the weight, what kind of netting you need, and if you need to build a separate frame or just tie it off to an existing structure. If this is beyond your skill level, then call in the professionals.
If you search “cargo” or “playground” netting, you probably can find someone in your area to help you select the correct netting and give you tips for installation. For example, https://trampolin-technik.de/de/wohnungsnetz/1552-sicherungsnetz-fur-den-innenbereich-3700730400107.html appears to have lots of tips, they are just not in English.
If all of this seems too complicated, you can always hang a hammock in your library and relax. (Source: trendir.com )
