You probably already know how versatile and comfortable bean bags are in the home, and the same is true outdoors. They’re not just for kids either.
When the weather is great any kind of bean bag can be used outdoors, even those with cotton canvas covers. But, as we know all too well, there are many times when it’s not safe to leave stuff in the garden for too long because there is always a chance of rain.
And, believe me, you don’t want a cotton covered bean bag to get soaking wet because you will regret it.
Bean bags designed for indoor or outdoor use tend to have polyester fabric covers which are, at the very least, shower-resistant. They are also much easier to keep clean, as any marks can usually just be wiped off.
There isn’t so much choice in the way of patterns or designs as there is with the indoor variety but you still have a fair range of options.
