With the help of furniture, accessories and wall coverings we are able to put our own stamp on our homes and mark them as our own space in the world. One great group of accessories for the home are bean bags, so let’s take a look at how they can be used in various rooms in the home.
Alternative Seating In The Lounge
Few people are willing to part with their sofa, but for those who are large bean bags are a great contemporary alternative form of seating. Bean bags are a increasingly popular furniture choice and as a result there are many designs available including those designed to act as a sofa a seat 3 or 4 people. They are renowned for being comfortable and it is possible to choose between various levels of firmness. If you don’t feel you can forgo a sofa entirely then why not opt for one 3 seat sofa and a couple of co-ordinating bean bag chairs?
Create A Chill Out Zone For Your Teen
As your kids grow into teenagers, you will find that they spend an increasing amount of time shut away in their bedroom. What better way to show you understand by making sure that their bedroom suits their personality? Bean bags are a great way to create the ideal chill out spot for your teen to relax.
Bean bags are available in a wide range of colors and fabrics, so why not combine a few different ones and place them in the corner of your teen’s bedroomto create a snug little area where your teen can relax and read, use their laptop or chat with friends. For girls, why not pair faux fur with animal print for a funky look, while boys will appreciate leather and camo print.
A bean bag corner is also a great idea for younger kids and makes a great spot for story time!
Make Use Of Dead Space
Every home has little nooks and crannies that no-one ever knows what to do with. The space under the stairs or the landing are difficult to furnish, but when you leave them unfurnished they look very bare. Why not add a bean bag and a floor lamp in these spaces for an extra little snug spot in which to relax.
Take It Outside
If you have a deck, patio or balcony then beanbags can offer an ideal option for furnishing your outdoor area. Look for beanbags in suitable fabrics and use them to lounge on your patio with a cool drink. Bean bag furniture is much easier to store over the winter months than wooden or plastic patio sets because they can simply be wrapped up and placed in a storage shed or loft until the weather breaks.
Bean bag chairs are not only comfortable, but they are very versatile and can be used to add seating to almost any room within your home. Whether you are looking for a way to bring a seating area into your bedroom or some way to fill an otherwise dead space under the stairs bean bags are a great option. Use them to add your own style into your home.
