We all know poufs are amazing to have in the house, not only because they look good and are very comfortable, but they actually have great benefits - like adding extra seating when family and friends visit for the holidays - and can even encourage you to relax and take some time for yourself. Here’s a list of why poufs are so cool and why you need them in your house right now!
Nothing is better than relaxing in some comfortable seating, and nothing is more comfortable than a pouf. Whether it’s in the living room or in the corner of the bedroom, I bet it will be your favorite spot for when you need to take a couple minutes to yourself or even a couple hours to chill.
We all need to meditate from time to time, to cleanse our minds and revive our energy. And what better way to do it than with a pouf? Being extra comfy, it will allow you to easily focus and free your mind from distractions.
Reading while on a pouf is also a great idea. Place it in a well-lit space, preferably with natural light, and you’ll find yourself spending hours reading through your book list and not even noticing it.
For Intimate Gatherings
Poufs can be a major part in an intimate gathering with friends and family, especially with the holidays coming up. Place them around the living room, set some appetizers on the coffee table, and invite some good friends over: you’ll have an unforgettable night and everybody will love the setting.
After having some relaxing time in the afternoon with the poufs, how about using them to have some fun with your family? Place them in the living room forming a circle and set a couple board games in the middle, creating a fun and intimate space so you can have some quality family time. The kids will love it! Or you can use poufs to comfortably stream your favorite shows and have a movie marathon night!
Nothing’s better for your mood and health than getting some sunlight and fresh air. Put some poufs on the balcony or on the deck and warm yourself by enjoying the afternoon sun on them. It’s even more interesting when you have company: prepare some tea and have a relaxing conversation.
For The Kids
Without a doubt, the kids are the ones most attracted to poufs. One of the pros is that they are very kid-friendly because they’re a type of seating that can’t really hurt children. How about adding a couple to your child’s bedroom and playroom?
To Encourage Reading
Place a pouf or bean bag close to a bookshelf, in a well-lit place, to encourage your children to read more. Being so comfortable and versatile, poufs can be used for long periods of time without the child even noticing or getting tired, and that is great to keep children interested in what they’re doing without getting uncomfortable or distracted.
To Make Playtime Even More Fun
An interesting pro of poufs is that, besides being very comfortable, it gives children the freedom to move their bodies as they want to, allowing them to feel more comfortable, and this is great for playtime. Your kids will love playing on a pouf!
Studying is not often a kid’s favorite thing to do, but by allowing your kid to do it on a place he or she loves - a comfortable spot instead of the old desk by the bed - may encourage him or hre to study more. Or at least not get tired too easily. In this DIY, you can learn how to make a big bean bag they can use to study on.
For the Mama
The pouf is the best friend of nursing mamas. A big bean bag can be used to sit on while nursing the baby or even use a small one as foot rest to elevate your feet which can improve blood circulation!
One of the great benefits of poufs is that they are versatile. They can be used as:
- Foot rests
- End tables
- The possibilities are endless!
And differently from a sofa or chair, poufs can be easily changed from space to space without any effort, they fit anywhere: today you can use it to read a good book by the fireplace, tomorrow you can use it as a foot rest while you watch TV.
There are countless options for poufs, you can choose the perfect one for your house from a very wide range of sizes, shapes, colors, fabrics, weight and others options. It doesn’t matter what your current house decor is, you can easily find one that fits into it!
These were just some ideas as to why poufs are so awesome and also useful around the house, but the truth is: they can simply be used for anything and anyway you want it. There are no rules. Go crazy! I already have some around my house and you should have some too. Choose a couple different ones and go for it!
