How To Choose a Recliner Chair: Some Tips to Follow

What is it that you are looking for? With this checklist, I hope that you will have a better idea when you are making your decision.

  • Function. How much do you want the chair to recline? Do you just want it to tilt backward a little bit or are you looking for one that you can recline the back into a flat position? You will like to find out how many reclining angles it offers? Do you also want massage options, rocking function and built-in extras such as cup-holders?
  • Space required. A fully reclining position for the back may need up to three feet of space behind the chair. If your office or home space is limited, you can consider a wall-saver recliner.
  • The measurements. Will the chair fit your body size and the space you have for this piece of furniture?
  • How much weight can the chair support? Preferably the frame should be made of metal or hard wood.
  • The material or in another word upholstery. What materials are used to stuff and cover the chair or chair set? Is it leather or vinyl, foam or cotton and how thick is the padding? Is the material durable and stain resistant or is it easily cleaned? Do you want it to be fire-resistant? Does it cost much on maintenance? Does it have the color that you want?
  • If it is a push-back recliner, is it easy to adjust positions? If it is one that comes with a control, is the device easy to read and use?
  • Do you have special concerns? For example, if you have long limbs, if you are heavy or big-sized, or left-handed, you would want to double check if the chair will suit your needs before purchase. If the purchase is for an elderly person, would they be strong enough to maneuver the positions? Do you have small pets at home that the moving parts of the chair may cause danger to the pets?
  • Is it easy to resemble?
  • Lastly, do look up on the return policy for just in case you need to return it.
