A bean bag pillow, by definition, is considered a bag of dried beans. However, despite its simple name, this unique piece of furniture does not have to be filled with beans. Actually, there are some fillings available for your bean bag chair. Each is unique and has a range of advantages and disadvantages.
1. Polystyrene Beads
For several years, one of the most common beanbag fillers was polystyrene beads. These beads provide unique comfort. They press and shift to shape your body as you sink into the comfort of your chair.

2. Styrofoam Nuts
Other forms of fillers are Styrofoam beans. The advantage of using Styrofoam nuts is that every time you receive a package in the mail, chances are you will get an entirely new supply of beans. It can be thrown into your bean bag chair to help fill it again when the contents begin to break down. Some bean packers here and there will keep your chair in ideal condition.
3. Rice and Beans
Dry beans and / or rice can also be used to fill your bean bags. These items are relatively inexpensive and are available in your supermarket every day. However, if you live in a humid/humid environment, this might not be the best solution for you. Using rice and/or beans as filling can also attract moths, insects, or even mice.
4. Wood Shavings
Maybe what is not very well known are wood shavings? Wood shavings of all types can be used to fill your bag. Cedar chips are particularly attractive to many people because they don’t only smell fragrant, they also repel fleas. If you have a pet in your home, cedar wood chips might be the right filler for you.
5. Polyester Fillings
The contents of the pillow are also sometimes used to fill your bean bag. Although this is a rather inexpensive solution, it basically makes a giant pillow and does not have the buoyancy given by beads. After several packs, the filling will be packed and need to be reprocessed.
Assuming you are not allergic to them, fur and eyelashes are good kinds of stuff. However, before you can fill your bean bag with fur, you must have a second casing to put down the feather. Otherwise, they will work through the fabric of your chair.
7. Polyurethane Foam
Polyurethane foam is the latest type of professional bean bag filling. This filler is made of small pieces of high-density foam. It provides much-needed support, is very comfortable and can be shaken to repeatedly reform. Find the right charger for you. Whatever you decide to use, you will definitely sit and relax in the comfort of your beanbag chair.
