- Beanbags Buying Guide
Beanbags from Dunelm Mill
In essence a beanbag is a sealed bag that contains either dried beans or polystyrene. In recent years beanbags have become increasingly popular with all ages. Originally designed as a fun child’s seat, beanbags are now a truly fashionable product and are readily available in many different forms. Faux leather designs are often considered to be a stylish alternative to sofas in the home especially when living room space is limited.
Styles of Beanbags
Beanbags have really evolved in recent years. Originally beanbags were reserved for small soft circles for children to sit on; however, the range available today is truly magnificent. Options include different materials, shapes, sizes, purposes and designs. Below are a few of the most common styles available.
Chic Living Room Accessories
Beanbags are the perfect alternative to sofas. Not only do they take up less room than traditional living room furniture but they are also a great deal cheaper. Furthermore, beanbags can also be easily moved from room to room depending on what purpose you have in mind for your living room. For example, beanbags are perfect accessories for the lounge when you have visitors; however, they are also easily stored away in a spare room if they are not in constant use.
Cosy Garden Furniture
The hardwearing properties of our beanbags, especially those made of leather or faux leather, make them the perfect seating choice for the garden. Whether you like to sit comfortably reading a book in the garden or be a sun worshipper on your balcony, our range of beanbags is the perfect option. The leather and faux leather options are ideal for the garden as they can simply be wiped clean after use and stored in the home.
Our beanbag range wouldn’t be complete without a fantastic collection of beanbags designed specifically for children. Our range of children’s beanbags comes in a variety of bright colours, shapes and sizes. These beanbags are the perfect addition to a child’s playroom; they don’t take up much room and are very stylish. Whether your child prefers a pretty pink beanbag or one adorned with footballs, our beanbag collection has something to keep everyone happy.
Here at Dunelm Mill, all of our beanbags are filled with small polystyrene balls and are available in a variety of sizes, colours and designs. However, perhaps the most important aspect to consider when purchasing a beanbag is the material in which it is composed.
Beanbags are traditionally made from cotton or cotton based fabrics. This type of fabric is one of the most popular styles for children’s beanbags. There are several reasons for this such as the wide variety of colours available in cotton. However, perhaps the key benefit for children’s beanbags is the ease of cleaning.
PVC beanbags have grown in popularity over recent years. Generally considered to be a very practical yet stylish option these beanbags have become a must have in any modern home. Whether your teenage kids crave a comfy yet fashionable seat for their bedrooms or you desperately need extra seating in the family room but don’t have the budget or space, then PVC beanbags could be the perfect choice. This style of beanbag will complement most modern interiors and are very practical due to the easy clean properties of the material. PVC beanbags are available in a wide range of sizes and designs so you’re sure to find the ideal fit for your home.
Faux leather beanbags are also a very popular choice for customers who crave the leather look without the steep price tag. Faux leather beanbags are ideal for snuggling up and watching a film inside or grabbing a breath of fresh air in the garden. Faux leather is wipe clean and waterproof making them ideal for indoors and out. The faux leather beanbag is also one of our most stylish; available in subtle black or dark brown these beanbags will complement most contemporary homes.
All of our beanbags come with their own individual cleaning instructions that are specifically designed for each individual beanbag. However, below are a few handy hints to help you care for your beanbag.
- Do not machine wash your beanbag unless otherwise stated on the individual care instructions
- PVC and faux leather beanbags can be wiped clean with a damp cloth
- Avoid placing your beanbag directly in front of an open heat source such as a fire
