Can You Leave an Outdoor Bean Bag Outside?
Surprisingly, one of the most common questions asked is, can you leave an Outdoor Bean Bag outside.
The answer is yes, but it depends on the type of bean bag you choose.
Waterproof outdoor bean bags are designed to withstand the elements and can be left outside without worry. However, it is best practice to give them some protection in prolonged bad weather. In winter, we recommend moving the beanbag inside or at least to a protected area.
When choosing a waterproof bean bag, it's important to look for those made with materials like olefin fabric, which is highly resistant to water and fading from UV rays.
Olefin is a popular choice for outdoor bean bags because of its durability and ability to maintain its color and shape over time. Beanbags made from olefin fabric will also dry quickly in the sun and wind. If it is cloudy and cold, it will naturally take longer, and to aid in drying, it is best to tip the chair so that the water runs off.
The Cobana Outdoor Beanbag is made from 100% Olefin fabric, so it won’t become mouldy due to moisture or fade in the sun.
What to Consider When Styling Your Ultimate Outdoor Living Space
When styling your outdoor living space with bean bags, there are a few things to keep in mind to create the perfect atmosphere.
Firstly, consider the color scheme you want to use and how it will complement your outdoor surroundings.
If you have a lot of greenery and natural elements, you may opt for neutral colors that blend in, or add a pop of color to create contrast.
The SACKit Cobana Outdoor beanbag range is available in 13 colors, making it easy to select a bean bag that matches your style and complements your outdoor décor.
From classic neutrals to bold and bright hues, the Cobana range has something for everyone.
Secondly, consider the size and shape of the bean bags you choose. The structured design of the SACKit bean bags works well for a casual and relaxed feel and can be teamed with the SACKit ‘beanbag sacks’ and footstools for a more structured and modern look.
Consider the placement of your bean bags and how they will be used. Creating cosy seating areas for conversation or relaxation is a great way to encourage outdoor gatherings and make the most of your outdoor space.
And lastly, if you have little ones, why not include them in the fun?
The Cobana Outdoor Bean bag chair is also available for children, allowing them to enjoy the same comfort and style as the adults. Placing a few bean bags together in a designated play area or near the pool is a great way to keep kids entertained and create a family-friendly outdoor space.
So, whether you're hosting a party or just enjoying a lazy day in the sun, the versatility of outdoor bean bags makes them a must-have for any outdoor living area.
