How to Choose a Beanbag Chair - Seven Points to Remember
Do you know what to look for when choosing a beanbag chair?
Beanbags have been around forever. Most people probably had one in their house as they were growing up. People still buy them today because they just are a great piece of furniture. If you are buying a bean bags online for the first time, what should you look for?
- Comfort and support
Location: where is the beanbag furniture going to be used? Beanbags make great furniture to use in any room. Many teenagers have them in their bedrooms but they fit just as easily into the game room or even the living room. Some students have them in their dorm at college. I bought my first beanbag chair in college and kept it for many years.
Knowing where the beanbag chair will be will help in determining the other factors.
Color is an obvious factor. You want your beanbag chair to fit in with the décor either as a blend or as a contrast. Some beanbags have a theme for a child's favorite character while others have a sports theme. The choice of color is almost endless.
Material is a factor that takes serious consideration and again depends upon where and by whom the chair is used. Denim and leather are hard wearing while vinyl is a practical choice for a kids bedroom or where drinks are liable to get spilled.
Vinyl is a very easy material to wipe clean with a damp cloth. For a den or living room, high quality cotton or suede are good choices and are just as durable.
