Bean Bag Chairs - How to Choose the Right Fabric
Bean bag chair – never has an object of seating been so singularly loved by householders everywhere. Why? Lots of reasons really but the main one is probably that beanbags are just so versatile. You can quite simply put down a beanbag in any room in the house and it’ll unobtrusively just lie there just waiting for someone to come along and sit on it.
They’re great for squeezing some seating into smaller spacer too. Teenagers love them in their bedroom (well, you know how they’re rather lie than sit at that age), and students too are rather fond of them.
Bean bag chairs Are Easy to Move Around
Another big plus about bean bags is that they’re easy to shift around from one room to another. That’s because, unlike say a sofa chair or settee, they’re not the slightest bit heavy.
And don’t worry about them spoiling the look of your interior design either. Beanbags can also look classy and fun at the same time, depending on the type of fabric you use and the stuffing.
And the best bit? They’re not expensive. Oh yes, we almost forgot – and kids love to sit in them too.
Easy Cleaning and Storage with Beanbags
Just as they’re easy to move around and fit into small spaces, beanbags can also be tucked away into the bottom of a wardrobe or squashed onto a closet when not in use (try doing that with a sofa chair!).
Cleaning-wise it’s usually just a case of removing the fabric and sticking it in the washing machine.
