Power Chair Recliners, Power Seat Lift Recliners, Home Theater Recliners
Remodeling my living room and throwing out the dog furniture and it's time to buy a recliner!. Replacing old worn out couches and chairs with good leather furniture is expensive, but essential, plus I wanted more power.
Choosing a recliner involves a lot more than a trip to the internet where I usually shop. I had to actually go to a furniture store and park my megabutt into different styles and types of chairs on display to find one that "fit". It's a lifelong decision here! It would be easier if I were talented enough to build my own power recliner.
The colors that recliners come in now are still a bit old fashioned, but I guess they go with what works and sells well. I have an eclectic living room, but large pieces of furniture should blend in and accessorize, not dominate. I'm choosing a Navy Blue with power recline.
Some may think that power recline is a lazy feature. I can assure you that it is not. Although it is hard to pull that dumb stick back to recline the back and output the footrest, having a power motor doing it will allow you to start and stop the recline/footrest exactly where you want it to go for the most comfort possible.

Power Lift Chairs and Recliners
Going with a power lift function is for medical reasons. At times it may be essential for handicapped people and megabuttically challenged people, but raising and lowering yourself into a chair can be considered actual exercise if done right.
The power lift function also calls to mind scenes depicting fighter pilots ejecting from cockpits. I know the power lift chair is in no way that powerful, but some yahoo would probably make it that way.
Deciding to get a power lift chair is a personal decision and I really recommend the power recline function instead. It is possible to get both functions in one chair. That's taking power to the max.

Home Theater Seating
We do watch a lot of movies and I considered buying the home theater seats. They do come in a power recline option and have the cutest little cup holder and side storage compartment in the arms, but they generally only come in black. What's up with that?
I suppose the home theater should be dark to allow best movie watching. But what happens when you need to get up for snacks? It will be so dark that you'll stub your toe. I guess you could keep bags of chips in the convenient arm storage compartment. Candy bars too. You can even buy them in the great big economy bags. Now that's what I'm talking about.
But no, black chairs are not for me. I like the Navy Blue one.
