When you are looking to decorate your kids’ bedroom or even a reading space in your home, it is well worth considering the type of chair they will have.
You don’t want them to be uncomfortable and want to provide them with a space where they can relax while engaging in online learning or reading a book. This is where bean bag chairs come in to play.
In case you’ve never heard of them, a bean bag chair is, in essence, a sack full of polystyrene or naturally occurring beans, which adapt to the shape of the person who sits in it. They spread the weight evenly, meaning that they are comfortable for even the fussiest of children, making them ideal as a gift for your kid.
If you don’t have a bean bag chair for your children yet, here are five reasons why you should seriously consider getting one!
They Are Supportive
A kids bean bag chair will be more supportive than a standard wooden chair, as it supports good posture by molding itself to the shape of your child’s body. For many children and even adults, standard furniture can be too hard and uncomfortable, or it can be so squidgy that it offers no support. A bean bag seat achieves the perfect balance between the two, helping your child to sit upright and even helping babies who may need to have their heads supported.
They Are Comfortable
As mentioned before, a bean bag chair adapts to the shape of your child’s body and spine, and therefore, they are great for maximizing comfort. The filling enables your child to sit as they are, as it conforms and offers extra support for children who may be fussy and like to wriggle around. The majority of bean bag chairs also have soft fabric surfaces, which will add to the comfort that your child or toddler has while using them.
They Are Multi-Functional
If you are investing in a bean bag chair for a baby, it is worth noting that you can add adjustments so it can be used in the home, the car, or when traveling. You can have straps added to a bean bag chair to hold a baby in place on a car trip, and of course, they are adjustable for seat belts. When the child is older, they can support them as they begin to read and write. So not only are bean bag chairs multi-functional, they are cost-effective too.
They Are Light
It’s never easy when a child wants to move into their bedroom to access a better light source for reading, and the chair is too heavy. This can cause them to pull or push the chair on the floor, creating an awful noise that can damage the wooden flooring. A bean bag chair is light enough for them to move on their own, so they can adjust it in the room to where they want to sit without needing your help, enabling them to develop their independence.
They Are Easy Maintenance
Finally, bean bag chairs are easy to maintain. If the surface becomes dirty, you can unzip it and put it into the washing machine or clean it with a damp sponge. They do not require dry cleaning and are often made of natural materials, meaning they are easy to wash with basic washing detergent too.
