5 Reasons Why You Need To Get An Outdoor Bean Bag For Your Garden

As a 90’s baby, the word ‘bean bag’ makes my heart swell with nostalgic happiness. The 90’s were all about bean bags and inflatable furniture, though I have to say that bean bags were definitely way more comfortable and fun than the inflatable chairs we used to have. 

I think that’s time for bean bags to make a comeback, don’t you? What better way to soak up the sun in your garden than by lying on a comfy bean bag that moulds and adapts to your body’s shape and weight? 

There are loads of benefits to having an outdoor bean bag, especially if you’re looking for comfortable seating for your garden. Let’s take a look at 5 reasons why you need to get an outdoor bean bag for your garden. 

Firstly, bean bags are portable.

When you’re chasing those rays around the garden, you want a piece of furniture that you can easily move around. Outdoor bean bags definitely tick this box. Bean bags are lightweight and easy to move so you can position them wherever you want to within your home or garden. Outdoor beanbags from Big Bertha are made with SmartCanvas™ material – a premium outdoor fabric that makes them perfect for both indoor and outdoor use as the fabric is strong and durable. 

Bean bags come in all different shapes and sizes. 

Bean bags have come a long way since the 90s. No longer are they just big cotton sacks full of polystyrene balls! Bean bag specialists like Big Bertha have created several amazing ranges of bean bags all designed for life both indoors and outdoors. These bean bags come in a huge array of shapes and sizes, all with their own set of specifications that make them great for various different activities.

Finding the right bean bag for you will depend on what you want to use it for, but for those looking to sunbathe and enjoy some quiet, relaxing time in the garden, I’d recommend Big Bertha’s Sun Lounger Bean Bag. The Sun Lounger Bean Bag has been designed to provide the best comfort possible when lounging out in the sunshine, reading, relaxing, and even taking a little nap. If you are looking for something with a bit more back support, the XXL Braced bean bag or Gamer bean bags are also brilliant bean bags offering you a comfortable cushion support to lean into. This is great for those looking to read, relax, or even work from home in their garden.

Bean bags are extra comfortable, especially when compared to regular outdoor furniture sets.

Normal garden furniture is great, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes garden furniture sets aren’t always very comfortable – especially if you want to spend a good amount of time out in your garden. Outdoor furniture is designed to be weather resistant which often means that seating doesn’t usually come with a lot of padding, making it uncomfortable and likely to cause muscle ache and tension.

Bean bags offer a great alternative, or addition, to these outdoor furniture sets. The soft interior of bean bags means that your body is able to relax in comfort as the bean bag moulds to your shape and changes as you move. Bean bags are the ultimate cosy furniture; they help to support your muscles and relieve your pressure points, ensuring that you’re able to unwind in comfort. 

Bean Bags can help to prevent and relieve back pain.

Speaking of comfort, bean bags have been shown to help prevent and reduce back pain and tension by providing your body with proper support. They can help to support your muscles and joints properly, which in turn helps them to realign themselves and relieve pain and discomfort. The fact that bean bags adapt to everyone’s body shape and weight means that everyone can benefit from proper support and reduced back pain when relaxing on a bean bag. 

They make stylish additions to your outdoor space.

As I mentioned earlier, bean bags have come a long way, especially when it comes to aesthetics. There are now huge ranges of designs that have been produced with luxury and style in mind. From leather to faux rabbit fur, these items are now so much more than simply additional seating for your home or garden.

    I do quite like these as they are super comfy and also easy to move when needed. I’d need a few to make sure the kids don’t fight over them.

    This looks so much better than the bean bags that I used to have as a kid. And relaxing on that in the garden sounds dreamy x
