Are you looking to buy a bean bag chair for your teenage son or daughter? Perhaps they have asked you for one for their bedroom, or maybe it’s a surprise present. Either way, they are fantastic gifts that can really add some character to any room of the house. They’re comfortable, fun to sit on, and perfect for any age. You’re never too old for a bean bag chair.
If you’re in the market for a bean bag chair for your teenager, you’ve come to the right place. As seating options go, they are one of the best choices out there, with a vast array of different options to choose from. You may remember bean bag chairs as a kooky novelty item from your youth, but they are making a comeback and are an increasingly popular accessory for any teenager’s bedroom. A bean bag chair can be a fantastic hangout spot for friends to sit and chat, play video games, or watch TV. And when their friends go home, it also provides a comfortable place to sit alone and read or study.
With so many choices available, it can be difficult to pick just one. Which bean bag you choose for your teenage son or daughter will depend on several things, including the layout and design of their bedroom, what they will use it for, and their personal style preferences.
To help you make the right choice, let’s take a look at some of the factors you need to consider when purchasing a bean bag chair.
The most important factors to help you choose a bean bag chair for teenagers
The fabric of your bean bag chair is probably the most important factor as it will completely determine the level of comfort it provides and what you can do with it. Cotton is a simple yet effective choice as it is comfortable and breathable, although you will have more trouble removing heavy stains. Find out the difference between cotton and polyester.
Denim and faux suede look more luxurious and aesthetically pleasing and will look great in any room. Polyester is one of the most practical fabrics as it is easy to clean and durable so it can be used outside, although it doesn’t provide the attractiveness or comfort of other options. Faux-fur is the optimum choice if you’re after extreme comfort, although it is the most difficult to clean and should not be taken outside.
Size and shape:
The size and shape of the beanbag you choose will depend on the dimensions of your teenager. If they are particularly tall, you will need a larger model to accommodate them, while smaller teenagers could make do with a less sizable option. Remember that younger teenagers can be prone to growth spurts so it may pay to be more generous with the size so they don’t outgrow it.
Do you have enough room in your home to keep a giant beanbag? We offer chairs in a range of sizes, so whether your home is small or large, there will be a chair to sit you. The shape is also important, depending on what the chair will be used for. If your teenager likes to sit up and read or study, they will want a chair with more back support, whereas if they are just interested in napping and lounging in the sun, then a softer, more comforting option might be best.
DIfferent teenagers have different senses of style. Some like things that are pink and fluffy, while others have a darker, edgier fashion sense. Our bean bag chairs come in a huge range of colours, shapes and materials to suit any preference.
When choosing a bean bag chair, it is essential you pay attention to the filling that you buy. Our bean bag chairs do not come ready-packed, so you’ll need to purchase it separately. Polyester beads are the most common and provide the best value for money, while natural materials such as soft pine shavings can add a pleasant aroma and comforting feel.
We have bean bag chairs to suit any price range, from the simple Rio design to the more luxurious Lambswool chair, made from authentic, pure Australian lambswool. Decide how much you are willing to spend before making your choice.
Where are you planning to keep your teenager’s new bean bag chair? The right model for you may depend on the room in which it is used most frequently. More comfortable fur and suede chairs would be best suited to an indoor room such as a bedroom or lounge, while if it is for outdoor use, you will need a more durable polyester chair. Many of our chairs are lightweight and portable, allowing users to transport them between rooms, while others are larger and better suited to a fixed position.
