Type of Bean Bag Refills in Singapore
It is a known fact that bean bags have become an increasingly popular item to own in Singaporean homes. Comfortable, funky, and pretty, what is there not to like about them? While the records of Masons Home Decor does show that there is actually a substantial market of Singaporeans who purchase a bean bag solely for home decor purposes, there are many others who would actually love to snuggle in one on a daily basis!
Being so light and easy to carry has resulted in some users bringing their bean bag to every part of their home or office they go to. Do this for 5 to 7 years and you may realise that the beads or filling in your bean bag will start to lose its volume. When this happens, do not panic!
There has also been much debate on EPP vs EPS bean bag refills. We have here today in detail, the types of bean bag refills available in Singapore, so that you may determine which would suit you best!
Expanded Polystyrene (EPS)
Expanded Polypropylene (EPP)
Other possible types of bean bag fillers
Compressed foam has evolved into memory foam over the years, due to the emergence of technology. This material is used mainly for bean bag chairs or loungers to provide a very firm yet comfortable experience. It is a type of Polyurethane Foam that reacts to body heat to provide the user with optimum comfort.
- Memory foam molds to a warm body to accommodate to the shape of the body.
- High ergonomic properties that are perfect for maintaining preferred body posture.
- Not suitable for bean bags of irregular shapes.
- Unsuitable if you wish to snuggle and move within your seat along with the beads within your bean bag.
- After a period of 5 years, memory foam may not recover to its original shape. Therefore, it is more suitable for individual use only.
Micro beads are made from the most common type of plastic in the world – Polyethylene. They are manufactured to be no more than 1 mm in diameter, and can be comfortable to fill bean bags that are meant to be extremely firm.
As mentioned above, it is ideal for bean bags if you want them to be firm, rigid, and hard.
Micro-beads are really tiny, having them compacted into a bead bag would result in it to be much heavier than when filled with any of the bean bag fillings discussed above.
If you are looking for a rigid bean bag, you would have found your solution. But if you would prefer a bean bag to be something you can snuggle into, this option of filling is not the one for you.
