Where to use your beanbag sofa?

Beanbag sofas are great because you can place them wherever you want, and they're super comfortable.

Besides that, you can also move them to various locations, so you can take them to the garden, man cave, or even pool, for example. We've provided several suggestions for where you might use your beanbag sofa.

Living room:

A beanbag sofa may not be what comes to mind when you think of your living room, but there are actually a lot of new colours and styles on the market these days compared to the older beanbags that looked a bit more childlike.

There are a lot of reasons why a beanbag sofa would be a good addition to a living room, especially if you don’t have a lot of room for an extra chair.

A beanbag sofa gives your living room a cosy, not overcrowded look, while also ensuring that your small children are safe while they watch TV.

The wide array of colours and styles makes a beanbag sofa a great addition to your existing decor, no matter what its style or colour.

Bedroom:

Teenagers and children often have a beanbag sofa in their bedrooms, since it is the perfect way to make use of bold colours without jamming the room with furniture.

Man/Woman cave:

If you want to create a man cave or woman cave filled with fun decor, a beanbag sofa is just the thing. Whether you have a lot of space or not, sitting and relaxing on beanbag sofas can be a simple, enjoyable, and relaxing way to spend time with your friends while enjoying a few drinks or reading a good book.

Den:

Beanbag sofas can be a great choice for adding to areas in your home where people spend time watching TV or relaxing.

If you have a den or chill area in your house, for example, a beanbag sofa can be a fantastic addition.

They can be used in a variety of colours and sizes, making them easy to match to a variety of environments.

When sitting on a beanbag sofa, people can feel relaxed and enjoy the vibe.

Garden room/Conservatory:

If you have a garden room or conservatory, adding some beanbag sofas is a great idea.

Garden furniture is usually costly, and space might not be available for another piece, so having one large piece of garden furniture and some brightly coloured beanbag sofas on the floor may make people feel comfortable when they visit.

Balcony:

You might think that a balcony is limited to hanging laundry if you don't have a large terrace or a garden, but that's not the case at all.

Combine a couple of colourful beanbag sofas with some decorative panels to create your own private summer vibe.

Garden:

Beanbag sofas are a nice alternative to garden furniture, which is frequently uncomfortably positioned to sit on unless you want to spend a lot of money on high-quality stuff.

In addition to creating a relaxing, chilled-out atmosphere, using a selection of beanbag sofas for the garden maximises a small space without making it feel cramped and busy.

Children may also sit down in beanbag chairs in the garden without you worrying about them falling off.

Poolside:

There's nothing better than relaxing on a beanbag sofa around a pool because they're not heavy or difficult to move around when the weather gets a bit colder or you need to go inside.

Camping:

There are no luxuries or home comforts to speak of when camping, so it is a relatively low-maintenance activity.

That being said, being back to basics doesn't mean there is nothing to worry about. You will need quite a lot of equipment, including chairs that can fold up and be carried with you.

Beanbag sofas are much more flexible and convenient to take with you, and they are also much more comfortable than foldable camping chairs.

Office:

In old-fashioned offices, the lighting is usually guaranteed to give you a headache and everyone works in isolation in their cubicle in silence.

There are now many modern offices that encourage people to spend time there and enjoy themselves.

They are open-plan, collaborative, and intended to inspire a sense of pleasure, energy, and creativity.

Beanbag sofas are a common sight in these environments, as are brainstorming benches, meeting rooms, and break rooms where people want to relax.

Who can use a beanbag sofa?

Beanbag sofas are incredibly convenient, comfortable and enjoyable to use, and although they’re perfectly safe to use for most people, it's important to remember that beanbags are not without risks when not used correctly.

Beanbag sofas can be used by children of all ages, but if being used by young children, they should always be supervised - especially babies and children under the age of 2, who should never be left alone on a beanbag sofa.

If you have mobility problems, back issues or have trouble standing up without assistance, you should avoid beanbags completely or make sure you’re able to get help when you need to stand up.

Is a beanbag sofa a good alternative to a normal sofa?

Beanbag sofas are not long term alternatives to actual sofas for a number of reasons, but that doesn’t mean they can't be used in conjunction or that they can't be used as a substitute in a number of situations.

When you have a small living room and wish to add an armchair but don’t have enough room, for example, a beanbag sofa may be a good option.

Beanbag sofas are also versatile and easy to transport, making them ideal for having on hand when you have visitors. You can put your beanbags away after you've finished using them if you need to free up more space.

How to care for your beanbag sofa

Beanbag sofas are pretty simple to take care of. Though beanbags.co.uk beanbags do not include removable covers, they are water-resistant and constructed from 100% polyester material that can be wiped clean with a damp cloth. To keep your beanbag sofa in the best shape, don't eat or drink strong-coloured foods or liquids nearby, and if they do get spilled, they need to be cleaned immediately.
