Recommendations for Bean Bag Filling: How to Fill Bean Bags?

Instructions for Filling your Bean Bag

How do you fill bean bags? Ok… We get this question lots… You are wondering how to fill them, especially without spilling all the beans everywhere  but inside the bean bag cover itself. We are going to make this as simple as possible for you. Follow these steps and you should not have too much spillage.

Zipper Instructions – please note, but Australian law, our bean bags’ zippers are supplied with no lids, this is to prevent children from opening the bean bag and accessing the bean fill, which can be a safety hazard for children: Watch this video here.

  1. All Mooi Living Designer Bean Bags  meet Australian Safety Standards and therefore all zipper pullers of the covers have been removed so they are not accidentally opened by children. A paper clip is best used to open the bean bag cover to pour the beans in.
  2. If you ordered a bean bag with an inner mesh bag, please make sure that you fill the inner bag with the bean or foam filling. Once filled, put inside the covers.
  3. Grab someone (if you can) to help you out. If not use some large bulldog clips to clip the bean bags to a suitable surface/object that can hold your cover up.
  4. We do recommend filling your bean bag in a bath or a more confined area to prevent beans spilling everywhere.
  5. To fill your bean bags with as less spillage as possible, we recommend  creating a funnel with a piece of cupboard to help funnel the beans into your bean bag cover.
  6. Cut the corner of the bag of beans (not the whole top) otherwise you are asking for spillage.
  7. Slowly pour the bag of beans into the funnel. Once funnel is full, lift the bean bag cover and manuvre it around to let the beans fill the cover.
  8. Repeat step 6 until your bean bag cover looks full.
  9. Once bean bag cover is full, close it with a paperclip and shake it up to see if you have enough beans in it. Sit on it, get a good feel and decide if you need more beans or not.
  10. If your bean bag needs more beans repeat steps 6-8.
  11.  Once bean bags are full to your desire, the most important thing is, sit back, relax and enjoy!

Filling Requirements for each Bean Bag

Indoor Bean Bags

  1. Komfort Triangle Large: 480 litres of beans or 10kg of Foam Fill 
  2. Vintage Chair & Ottoman: 350 litres of beans for the chair & 50 litres for the ottoman – 8-9kg of Foam Fill for both recommended
  3. Komfort Triangle Bean Bag: 280-300 litres of bean fill or 6-7kg of Foam 
  4. Daybed Lounger: 380 litres of beans recommended
  5. Chill Bean Bag Lounger: 600 litres of bean filling recommended
  6. Boss Bean Bag: 350 Litres of beans 
  7. Brooklyn Leather Look: 350-400L of bean Fill or 8-9kg of foam fill
  8. Mini Triangles: 120-150L of Bean Filling
Please note, foam filling can be quite squishy, so it really comes down to personal preference. We recommend ordering 10% more so that you can fill to your liking. Alternatively, adding some bean fill will firm up your bean bag. So if you feel that the foam has not filled your bean bag to your liking, simply add some bean filling.
 

 Outdoor Bean Bags

  1. Cojelo Sauve UV Lounger: 500 litres of bean for filling
  2. Unplug Triangle Bean Bag: 300 litres of beans recommended
  3. Universal Cushion: 300-340 litres of beans recommended
  4. Serenity Chair: 325 litres of bean filling recommended
  5. Bora Bora Chair: 450 litres of bean filling recommended
  6. Isla Lounger: 500-550 litres of bean filling recommended
  7. Lachlan Lounger: 550 litres of bean filling recommended
  8. Nevaeh Sunbed: 1000 litres of bean filling recommended
  9. Mini Pods: 270 litres of bean filling recommended

The Nevaeh double sun bed, requires a little work to get the right shape. Most importantly, you will need to ensure the inner bag is lined up with the covers. Watch this instruction video for more details.

You can certainly fill your outdoor bean bags with foam, however we highly recommend filling with the bean filling from Kmart or other major retailers.
 
Micro-beads are also a great alternative. As they are smaller than your regular bean fill, they make less surface noise, not to mention they are incredibly comfortable. You can purchase micro beads through Amazon or local suppliers.

  1. Hello Rosie,

    Unfortunately, we don’t. Freight would be astronomical if we did. However, you can purchase the beans from your local Kmart or Big W.

  4. Hello Avril,

    It’s amazing! So soft. But it is a little heavier. We recommend getting your foam fill from the guys at Foam for Home.
