Bean bags are a fairly simple piece of furniture, design-wise, but they are highly versatile, and can be used in virtually every room in the house or office. Beanbags are particularly useful in smaller spaces, where a lack of space may limit the amount of furniture that can be used. For this reason, bean bag chairs are an inexpensive and space saving solution for many students and for children’s bedrooms - they serve as a great alternative to bulky furniture.
Beanbags are very comfortable to sit on, they mould to fit the shape of your body, and are fairly lightweight so can be moved to different rooms as and when required. A bean bag chair can be used as a less expensive seating area, than, let’s say, an average sized bulky settee. They can also be stored away very easily in a wardrobe or trunk, ready for use. Bean bags are also very easy to clean - you simply remove the outer material and wash it separately.
Perhaps beanbags are most commonly used in kid’s rooms – and with the large selection of fabrics and patterns available, it’s very easy to customise your own kid’s bean bag. If you are looking for material for your children’s bean bags, Curtains made simple have over 100 different children’s fabric patterns. They have a huge selection to suit the colour scheme of any room, and cute colours and patterns to make any child happy! You can email Curtains made simple on

But beanbags are not limited to indoor use! You can even use them on your patio/in the garden on sunny days, as a comfy change from lawn/patio chairs. Beanbags can be bought in many different sizes, to accommodate everyone. When you are choosing your beanbag fabric, take into consideration the purpose of the beanbag. If you plan to use the beanbag in a children’s room, or outdoors, you will need to choose a fairy durable and easy-to-clean fabric. If you choose a washable material, small spills can easily be cleaned up using spot cleaning, this saves on washing the entire outer cover every time a child spills a drink!
If you plan to use a bean bag in the lounge or in adult bedrooms, you can choose more luxurious beanbag covers - why not try velvet, for an ultra soft touch and maximum comfort! Velvet is available in a wide range of colours, so you will easily find a tone to exactly match your current room décor. You can also think about using leather for your beanbag cover. Leather is very durable, and can usually be cleaned with minimum fuss, but it stills adds a classy touch to any room. And for those with more fun tastes - try fur! There are many different fake furs available, and neutral fur fabrics can look lovely in bedroom areas.
And don’t forget the dogs and cats in your family! You can buy extra durable cat and dog bean bags for your pets – they’ll love having a rest on them, and they don’t need to take up much space, they can be placed in the kitchen, lounge, or in virtually any other corner throughout your house.
Whatever your requirements, a beanbag can provide you with a comfortable and luxurious touch for your home. And don’t forget - once you’ve purchased a beanbag at an inexpensive price, you can change the cover at any time, and in doing so, you can create a brand new look for your beanbag over and over again!
