Bean Bag Chairs are a great way to dress up any room. They are great in a child’s room as the perfect support for the video player or as a nest for the reader in your family. Bean Bag Chairs work great as extra seating in your family room, they can be easily stored in a closet and pulled out when the kids have friends over or when you host a party. Sitting in a bean bag chair is a cozy nest for your guests and is much better than sitting in a hard chair.
Bean Bag Chairs come in such a wide range of fabrics these days that they do not have to be hidden away; they can be a part of your décor. With the high quality fabric and the unique designs available choosing a Bean Bag Chair that suits your room is as simple following a few simple steps.
With the wide variety of bean bags available on the market, there is a wide variety of fabrics available. Vinyl is very common in bean bag chairs, although some people feel that vinyl is too sticky and not as comfortable as cloth bean bag chairs. Vinyl is easy to wipe up and keep clean which is a definite advantage. When selecting vinyl ensure the fabric uses lead-free vinyl inks. Other bean bags come in leather, fun fur, microfibre, denim and cotton. If possible when choosing a fabric, look for a bean bag chair that has a liner so that the cover can be removed and washed periodically.
Regardless of the fabric you prefer, look for a high quality fabric. The fabric should use lead-free vinyl inks and stand up to wear and tear as they are pushed and pulled in all directions. Since they sit on the floor the fabric must be durable to ensure the bean bag lasts for many years. The seams should be double stitched with clear nylon for added strength as you do not want the bean bag chair to spring a leak. The zippers should be locking to ensure the safety of children. The zippers must be locked to keep children from being able to open the bag and ingest the fill. As well the bean bag should be double zippered to ensure the safety of the bag and to keep the fill inside the bag.
When looking for a bean bag chair, look at the shape that best suits your needs. Bean bag chairs with a pear shaped design offer better back support because they are taller and cover more of your body. The flatter pancake shaped bean bag chair works great for two people or as a coffee table substitute. The pancake works better as a lounger than as a chair. Some bean bag chairs are designed specifically for children; they are smaller and adjust better to small bodies. Look at shape and dimensions of the chair when making your choice to ensure they meet your needs.
When choosing the fill for your bean bag chair look for high quality recycled polystyrene fill. You want a bean bag chair that has enough fill to offer support but enough give to be comfortable. Polystyrene fill is the best as it is soft enough to provide great comfort but is also strong enough to withstand lots of compression without losing its sponginess. For the benefit of the environment, choose 100% recycled polystyrene. When choosing fill be sure to look for polystyrene that is fire retardant or complies with flammability standards.
