If you love the idea of adding a bean bag chair to your home, but are not sure if it is right for you, then you might be overthinking it. Sure, if you were a hardcore gamer, then there would not be a doubt that this piece of furniture should be a staple in your home. Alternately, if you are a college student then you likely know that these are the best chairs to get comfortable in for a long night of studying. However, what if you are neither of these? Can you really pull off this type of furniture in your home? Absolutely!

Beanbags Are for Everyone

Beanbag furniture is perfect for everyone, from toddlers to seniors. One of the reasons why these balls of beans have been associated with gamers and students is because these groups of individuals sit for long periods of time. This is the only type of furniture that is as soothing as it is supportive. When you melt into one, the beans disperse to cradle every inch of your body, from behind your knees to your lower back to the nape of your neck.

If they can keep someone comfortable and pain-free sitting in them for hours, just imagine how great you will feel after just watching a movie or sitting down to talk on the phone in one.

Diverse Styles  

Another reason why these chairs are appropriate for every age is because of the diverse styles they are available in. There are kid size bean bags that your child will love. He will need no help getting up or down, nor will he have to sit with feet dangling, like on a traditional couch. Medium-sized ones are ideal for teenagers, game and media rooms, or dorms. They can even be used to fill in that awkward empty corner in your living room.

If you are considering saying goodbye to that uncomfortable living room furniture and replacing it with a bean bag sofa and chair it will probably be one of the best decisions you will ever make. Plenty of people are saying goodbye to those overpriced, uncomfortable, boring pieces of furniture these days.


Unlike traditional furniture that breaks down and becomes extremely uncomfortable in overused areas, this is not something you will experience with bean bags. The beans flow freely and spring back to shape. Some will never need refilling while others that are heavily used may need an occasional bag of beans added from time-to-time. This is a whole lot less expensive than buying all new furniture. Plus, if you choose a chair with a removable cover, you can take it off and wash it whenever you need to.
