Whether you’re looking for comfortable seating by your pool, on your deck, around a firepit, or anywhere else in your backyard, a bean bag lounger is a great option. They’re easy to maintain, move around, and they’re suitable for all kinds of people, young and old.
Let’s look at some of the features of a backyard bean bag lounger.
What to Look for in a Backyard Bean Bag
Not all bean bags are suitable for outdoor use. There are a few essential features that you need to look for when you’re shopping online.
Even if you don’t have a pool, your backyard bean bag is bound to get wet from rain and moisture in the air. If it isn’t water resistant, you’ll have a sopping mess on your hands in no time. This can encourage mould which can be quite harmful to the health of your family. (Understand the difference between waterproof and water resistant)
Intense heat and sun can damage a backyard bean bag or make it dangerous to sit on.
Whether from food and drink, animals, or other elements, your backyard bean bag is bound to get dirty. Select a bean bag that’s stain-resistant and easy to wipe clean, or with a machine-washable cover.
Mould and Mildew Resistant
As already mentioned, mould and mildew can be a big problem for your family. Because you’ll likely store your bean bag lounger in a moist environment, and because such a large portion of it sits directly on the ground, it must resist the growth of mould and mildew as much as possible.
Our Favourite Bean Bag Loungers
Now that we know what to look for in the perfect backyard bean bag, we can look at some of our favourites for various uses.
Best for One
There’s nothing more relaxing than a bit of me time. Imagine comfortable seating beside a glistening swimming pool on a hot day or maybe nestling by a firepit with a good book on a cool evening. We love the Kahuna Single Lounger for these purposes. It comes in a range of fabric and colour options to suit your personal taste.
Best for Two
Just like the Single Lounger, the Big Kahuna Double Lounger comes in a variety of fabrics and colours. The advantage is the size. These are great to use outdoors on your deck for your next family barbeque, or just spending some time together on your patio.
Caring for Your Outdoor Bean Bag Lounger
To take proper care of your lounger, store it inside during winter months, before storms, and whenever it’s not in use. Be sure to inspect it frequently for damage and wipe with a damp cloth when it’s dirty. Also, flip and rotate it around, so the same parts aren’t always on the ground or exposed to the sun.
Cheaper isn’t always better. When you consider the quality of our bean bag loungers, and the way they work so well in the outdoors, we believe we provide excellent value.
Enjoy the sun and the great outdoors with a bean bag lounger. Be sure to make time to relax and enjoy your comfortable new seating!
