You need to take extra care when filling a bean bag chair. It is best done with someone else helping you out - otherwise you can end up with thousands of polystyrene beads rolling around the floor of your living room. The best approach is to put the bag that contains the beads inside the bean bag chair and gently open it. Then the beads need to be gently poured in. Filling bean bags needs to be done indoors - as even the vaguest hint of breeze can cause the beads to scatter everywhere. One key consideration is how full the bean bag should be stuffed with polystyrene beads. Many people have their own preference - however you should bear in mind that if a bean bag chair is understuffed it won't provide adequate support for you and may be a little uncomfortable. A fully stuffed bean bag provides very firm support. It is recommended that people with bad backs overfill their bean bag chair - as a fuller bag will provide particularly good support for your back. In general though, a good rule of thumb is to fill the bean bag to 6 inches above the widest point of the bag.
With the wide variety of bean bags available on the market, there is a wide variety of fabrics available. Vinyl is very common in bean bag chairs, although some people feel that vinyl is too sticky and not as comfortable as cloth bean bag chairs. Vinyl is easy to wipe up and keep clean which is a definite advantage. When selecting vinyl ensure the fabric uses lead-free vinyl inks. Other bean bags come in leather, fun fur, microfibre, denim and cotton. If possible when choosing a fabric, look for a bean bag chair that has a liner so that the cover can be removed and washed periodically. Regardless of the fabric you prefer, look for a high quality fabric. The fabric should use lead-free vinyl inks and stand up to wear and tear as they are pushed and pulled in all directions. Since they sit on the floor the fabric must be durable to ensure the bean bag lasts for many years. The seams should be double stitched with clear nylon for added strength as you do not want the bean bag chair to spring a leak. The zippers should be locking to ensure the safety of children. The zippers must be locked to keep children from being able to open the bag and ingest the fill. As well the bean bag should be double zippered to ensure the safety of the bag and to keep the fill inside the bag.
