What Are The Best Recliner Chairs To Buy?

What Are The Best Recliner Chairs To Buy?
February 19, 2018

Are you looking for the best recliner chairs? Well, the good news is that you’ve got plenty to choose from.

To help you on your way, we’ve compiled a handy guide to help you find the best recliner chairs for you.

Think about your individual needs

This is always the best place to start. With so many recliner chairs to choose from, it’s important to make sure you get the right one for you – and that means taking the time to consider what you need.

If you sometimes find it hard to sit down on or get up from a standard chair or sofa, then a recliner chair could be the solution. The same criteria apply if your doctor has suggested you raise your legs when you sit down – or you suffer from chronic pain and would feel more comfortable and supported if you could adjust your seating position.

Electric or manual?

It’s up to you whether you go for an electric or manual recliner chair. It’s all about what works for you.

If you have poor posture, severely limited mobility, aching joints or arthritic pain, then an electric recliner chair is likely to be your best option. Single and double motors are available – the former control the back and leg rest at the same time, while the latter can operate them together or independently. If you’re after the most convenient option, then a double motor chair that lets you manipulate the position until it’s just right for you could be the best choice.

Manual recliner chairs simply have a handle or a leaver at the size. By moving this, you can reposition your seat or tip forward as you need. One of the main benefits of this kind of recliner is that it’s really low maintenance. You don’t have to plug it into a power socket or worry about power cuts. They also tend to have lower price tags than electric versions. But remember, they may not be the best option if your mobility is severely limited.

Consider the size

How big or small would you like your recliner chair to be? And how much space do you have to accommodate it in your home? You’ll want a recliner chair that provides maximum comfort and support for your needs – and it should slot seamlessly into your home, too.

Make sure you measure your space so you know what you can get – and check the minimum and maximum dimensions of the recliner chair you’re interested in before you buy it.

Choose your colours carefully

Your recliner chair will play a key part in keeping you comfortable when you take a seat. But it’s also worth thinking about how it fits in with your interior, too. If you’re style conscious, you’ll want to consider the colour of your walls and the furnishings you already have – so you can choose a style that works with your current décor.

How about luxurious leather? Or perhaps you could keep things simple with a neutral tone (like cream or brown). You could go for a bolder shade (like red or blue) if you’re feeling brave. And how about a pattern? If it works with your lounge, then this could be the way to go.

Make sure you read the specifications

When you find a chair you like, don’t just look at the pictures. It’s important to read the description to check that it meets your needs. Don’t forget to read the full specifications before making any final decisions. Spending a little time doing this now will make all the difference in the long run – and you’ll know exactly what you’re getting when you place your order.
