Choosing The Best Bean Bag Refill

Choosing The Best Bean Bag Refill

Even the highest-quality bean bag chairs will eventually lose their shape and compress over time, but the good news is that you can always get a bean bag refill to give your bean bag chair a new lease of life.

There are several different types of bean bag refills available, and being familiar with all of them can guide you in selecting the one that is right for you:



  • Shredded Foam. 

Refilling bean bags with shredded foam is a popular choice. Because of the shredded foam's flexibility, it's common to spot stuffed animals and pillows filled with shredded foam. Even more manufacturers are turning to shredded memory foam for its maximum comfort and other benefits.


  • EPS (Expanded PolyStyrene) Beads.

The most common bean bag chair filling is made of EPS beads. Because of their styrofoam-like construction and look, these beads are surprisingly light and rigid. EPS beads are more durable than conventional fills because they can endure both moisture and heat. It's also a recyclable fill material.



  • EPP (Expanded PolyproPylene) Beads

These beads are composed of thermoplastic polymer and are extremely durable. They will outlast the majority of other types of beads. However,  when exposed to oxygen, its filling degrades rapidly.
