When it comes to choosing home furniture, nothing really screams plush and comfortable like a bean bag. Once you sit on these chairs, you’ll find that it’s difficult to get off of them.

If you are now planning to buy a bean bag, there are several factors that you need to consider first. The size, material, filling – these are just some of the things that you need to think about. Keep in mind that there are different types of bean bags on the market, but not all of them are created equally. Read on to learn more about useful tips in selecting the best bean bags that suits your needs and preferences.

  1. The beans

The bean bag chairs from Tesco have different bean densities. It is highly recommended that you purchase a product with a higher bean density to ensure long-lasting comfort. Bean bag chairs with low density costs less, but they can easily flatten out with everyday use. Products with higher density can retain their shape for a longer period of time, usually spanning from two to three years. If the beans do shrink, don’t fret because you can still replace them.

  1. Size

Another important factor to consider is the size. Similar to apparel, we also use the terms XL, XXL, and XXXL when talking about the size of a bean bag. However, it’s a little bit different compared to t-shirt sizes. When you say XL, these are bean bags that are suited for children, while the two bigger sizes are for adults. The XXL is suited for smaller spaces. Some chairs are so big that you can be fully enveloped in it, and there are also other products that can accommodate two to three adults.

  1. Removable outer sleeve

It is ideal that you search for a chair that has a removable outer cover. In addition, it would also be great if you can buy one with a waterproof inner liner to protect the beans inside the chair. With a removable sleeve, it will be easier for you to wash your chair. It’ll also make it easier for you to repair it.

  1. Fabric

Usually, bean bags are made from different fabrics ranging from cotton, microfiber, or vinyl. The third one is one of the most popular. The microfiber lining is a great option if you want a product that is easy to clean. There are also chairs made from smooth silk and velvet.
