Very simple, beanbags are hot!

There are no more boring and old-fashioned beanbags to be seen! In recent years they have become an indispensable part of our interior or our garden.

They are fine relaxation furniture and are not only purchased for the teenage bedroom, but also for the children's or living room.

Best bean bags for your child

Colorful colors and patterns are of course the best for a children's beanbag. The children's beanbag completes the nursery and gives your child wonderful moments of relaxation.

Bean bags are also a great gift for a birthday. They come in different price ranges.

The best we tested is this one from Wigiwama. What a sturdy beanbag, really suitable up to an older age and nice to plop on and read a book.

What should you pay attention to when buying a beanbag?

There are different fillings for the beanbag.

Make no mistake when buying a beanbag; EPS from recycling is also simply sold under the name EPS, but it consists of chunks instead of round pearls.

There are also beanbags with foam flake fillings, but just like the recycled EPS chunks, these usually offer insufficient comfort and that is exactly what you want with a beanbag!

So it is certainly worth checking which filling is used in the beanbag before purchasing one.

Beanbags for the home

For the nursery, playroom or living room we see many trendy and comfortable bean bags.

The better beanbags are ergonomically sound and mold themselves perfectly to your body, your back receives very good support.

Please note that the filling is made of new EPS pearls, which stands for comfort.

Beanbags for outside

A sturdy, water-resistant beanbag that can take a beating is an asset to your garden. How nice is it to enjoy the sun in your beanbag?

Make sure you get a bag that can withstand a night out.

Of course it stays nicer if you put it inside, but in principle the outdoor beanbag must be resistant to rain, sun or other weather conditions.

Outdoor bags are available in many trendy colors. There are also the self-inflatable bags made of parachute fabric available for outdoor use.

These are great for a picnic in the park or at the beach because they are so easy to carry.

Beanbag on the case

The beanbag has also become extremely popular in the workplace.

For example, in conference rooms, where colleagues can easily meet and brainstorm together from a comfortable position in the beanbag.

Especially the young and creative companies make use of it.

No boring long table with chairs, but a beautiful lounge area to come up with productive solutions and new ideas!

There are even companies with a chill room, here too the beanbag is seen more and more often.

Catering establishments

The beanbag is of course also a great solution for a restaurant, terrace or beach pavilion. In our spare time we need comfort.

If you are ready for a moment for yourself or just want to have a nice chat with friends, there is nothing better than sinking into a comfortable beanbag with a drink in hand.

Hopefully after reading this article you can make the right choice when buying a beanbag, good luck!

Why buy a children's beanbag?

A beautiful beanbag is a nice addition to the nursery, but can also be an eye-catcher for the living room.

A beanbag is easy to move, so there is always a place where you can put it.

There is always a color or design that fits in your home or in your child's room!

There are even shops where you can supply your own design to have the beanbag printed.

Beanbags are very trendy and can take a beating, so they are very suitable for your children.

Also a nice place for teenagers to play games or read because you can lie on it, hang out and of course sit, whatever you prefer.

It is better for your child's body than a sofa or chair because it takes on the body shape and relieves pressure in the spine.

Your kids can enjoy it together too!

It is also very convenient that most children's beanbags have a removable cover that can be washed at 30 degrees, but it cannot be put in the dryer because of the shrinkage.

If you can remove the stain with a damp cloth, this is preferred.

Conclusion

Many years since their invention, the beanbag is gaining more and more popularity with an even wider target group than before.

Now beautiful beanbags are produced in so many different fabrics, colors and shapes.

Some are made of extra soft fabric, but they are also made of leather, ecological cotton or ribcord.
