Indoor Camping Ideas
3 Ways to Build a Blanket Fort for Indoor Camping
Your living room is an obvious first option for your indoor campsite. The space alone is ideal for a family-sized camping outfit. Not to mention, all the living room furniture to aid in your fort building endeavors.
To create a family-sized lodge, align your couches across from each other with plenty of space in between for sleeping. Use a floor lamp or a tall chair in between your couches to prop up a blanket roof and give it some height.
Living room bonus: A built-in fireplace is a perfect place to build a campfire. Get the marshmallows ready!
Build a blanket fort in your dining room to maintain a proximity to food without the fear of animals being attracted to the smell. A yurt is a logical design for a table fort, especially if the table is round.
Create a steep roof by setting an ottoman on the center of the table, then drape blankets over it and let them cascade to the floor. Stack heavy books on top of the blankets on the ottoman to keep the blankets from slipping off. You can increase the size of your yurt by pulling your dining chairs away from the table and letting the blankets bridge the gap.
The beauty of indoor camping is that you can mimic a camping experience and still get to sleep in your own bed. Maximize space above your bed by creating a bedroom lean-to.
Use pushpins to hang your longest sheet near the ceiling on the wall next to the bed and let it drape across the bed to a chair on the opposite side. Maintain an outdoor atmosphere with mini trees. A makeshift firepit is simple to create with a ring of pillows around your laptop as it plays a crackling fire video on YouTube.
Bask in the glow of your digital campfire and enjoy the peaceful absence of mosquitos.
