How To Choose The Right Hanging Chair For Your Teen
We all know how picky teens can be when it comes to their clothes, games, hair, friends, and yes, their furniture too. It can be difficult for parents to try and choose something that they know their teenager will love.
That’s why we’ve put together this convenient TEN-STEP guide – to help you pick a hanging chair that will make your teen smile from ear to ear!
- Consider Their Interests
What sort of interests does your teenager have? Think about how they like to spend their free time and weekends. Do they enjoy playing video games? Perhaps a hanging chair that would allow them to recline and play games would be ideal? Do they love everything sports-related? Maybe consider a hanging chair with a sports theme.
Perhaps you have a teen who is a real bookworm, in that case, you might want to try and purchase a hanging chair that has its own light source. Think about your teens’ interests and go from there.
- Decide Where The Chair Will Go
Before you start looking at different types of hanging chairs for your teen, it’s a good idea to first take a walk around your house and try and find a suitable place for the new furniture. This will help give you a better idea of what sort of chair you’ll want to look at.
For example, if your teen enjoys spending lots of time outside you would want to place the chair somewhere in the garden. So immediately you know you need a weatherproof chair and possibly one that has its own stand.
- Choose Between Fixed and Portable Chairs
When it comes to hanging chairs there are two basic options – those that come with their own stand and those that need to be mounted.
Chairs that have their own stands are a good choice if your teen likes to travel or spend time outdoors because they are portable. Indoor chairs with stands are ideal if you rent your property and don’t want to make the chair a permanent fixture.
- Consider Maintenance and Cleaning
Some hanging chairs require more maintenance than others, and it’s an important factor to keep in mind. You need to be sure that you will be able to maintain the chair for your teen and keep it clean. Making sure you understand what’s needed upfront can save you a lot of hassles later on.
- Indoor vs Outdoor Chairs
Before you choose a hanging chair for your teen you’ll want to consider which will be more suitable – an indoor chair or one designed for outdoor use? You might even want to look at a chair that can be used both inside and outdoors – it all depends on your teenager’s lifestyle. If they prefer spending their time inside, a soft comfy indoor chair would be your best bet.
- Hanging Chairs With Stands vs Freehanging
Hanging chairs that come with stands require less set-up and installation than those that need to be mounted to the ceiling or another weight-bearing structure. If you’re not the most hands-on person when it comes to DIY, you’ll probably want to consider a hanging chair with a stand for your teen.
But if the thought of a screwdriver doesn’t fill you with panic – then why not go ahead and mount an eye-catching hanging chair in your teenager’s bedroom?
- Ask Your Teen For Their Opinion
Teens love to give us their opinions, don’t they? Well, when it comes to buying them a hanging chair, these opinions will finally be useful!
Jokes aside, the simplest way to choose a hanging chair that your teen will love is to ask for their opinion. Perhaps present them with a few different options and get their feedback. This will go a long way in making the right choice.
- How To Choose The Best Style
When it comes to choosing the best style of hanging chair for your teen, a good place to start is their bedroom. If this is where you plan to place the chair, have a look around at the decor to give you an idea of what will match. Here you can read: Don’t Be Afraid Of A White Hanging Chair For Your Bedroom
- Consider Weight Capacity
Most hanging chairs are designed to hold a single person, but there are chairs on the market designed for more than one. If your teen is very sociable or has friends that visit often, you might want to look at a chair with a higher weight capacity (because you just know they will all try and get into it!).
Hanging chairs with a higher weight capacity are also ideal for teens who like to snuggle with their pets.
- Think Of The Future
Teenagers don’t remain teenagers forever, in a few years they might be moving on, getting their own place and starting their adult lives.
So when it comes to choosing a hanging chair, or any type of furniture for your teenager it’s not a bad idea to think about the future and whether or not they will be able to take items with them.
Benefits of Hanging Chairs for Teens
A hanging chair is so much more than just a piece of furniture. It can be a place to retreat, a work of art, and more! Let’s look at just a few of the benefits that come along with owning a hanging chair.
- Easy to clean
When it comes to choosing furniture (especially for teenagers), maintenance and cleaning should always be considered. Most of the hanging chairs available today are easy to clean, with removable covers and surfaces that only require a wipedown. So if you have a teen who is a little on the messy side, then a hanging chair is a great option.
Hanging chairs offer a unique seating experience, quite unlike anything else, as well as a high-level of comfort. With the right cushions, a hanging chair can become a soft, welcoming cocoon – perfect for escaping from the world and recharging.
We all know teens love to chill in comfort – that’s why hanging chairs are such a great choice for them!
Hanging chairs are unique because unlike other furniture they don’t sit on the ground. Rather they are suspended – either from the roof or from their stands. This provides a one-of-a-kind seating experience as it feels as though you are floating in the air.
Hanging chairs are also eye-catching and can easily be the focal (and talking) point of the room.
- Relaxing motion
Most hanging chairs have a gentle swaying motion which is perfect for aiding with relaxation.
Just like adults, teens have stresses in their lives and they need places where they can relax and unwind. A hanging chair in their room or placed strategically in the garden can easily become a place of calm for them.
- Aid concentration
As well as being an excellent place to relax a hanging chair is also the ideal place for your teen to study.
We all know that it’s easier to take in information when we are in a relaxed and comfortable state, and because hanging chairs also provide a measure of seclusion, this makes it a perfect aid for learning.
- Good value for money
Furniture is usually a long-term purchase because no-one wants to have to replace expensive items every few years. Luckily when it comes to hanging chairs they always prove to be great value for money!
Most of today’s hanging chairs are built to the highest specifications using tested, durable materials which means that you get a chair that will last for many years to come, provided you maintain it. If you’re looking for value for money, you can’t go wrong with a hanging chair.
- Portable options available
One notable feature of hanging chairs is that there are portable options available.
For parents who don’t want to make a hanging chair a permanent fixture in their home, there is another option – the fold-up hanging chair. These lightweight, easy to transport hanging chairs are ideal for teens on the go and can easily be set up in just a few minutes. They’re perfect for the garden, beach, camping, concerts, outdoor movies, and so much more!
- Hundreds of options to choose from
With so many different styles available there is a hanging chair for every teen – no matter what their tastes! It might take a little effort to find something that they really like but with so many choices it’s bound to happen.
We hope these tips will help you find the PERFECT hanging chair for your teen!
