Considerations before you buy a Recliner Chair

Before you invest in a recliner chair, there are some factors to consider, and this guide will help you choose the best recliner chair for your living space.

The size of the room

To choose the best option for the space that you have, you must measure the room where your new recliner chair will be located. This can easily be done by measuring the entire room and making a sketch of the room. The artwork does not need to be perfect; it must just give a consultant an idea of what you need and whether the recliner that you want will fit into the space.

How the recliner chair fits your body

When you sit in a recliner chair that does not fit your body, it can cause discomfort and even unnecessary pain. With Lay-Z-Boy, consultants can take your measurements and find reclining chairs that fit your body perfectly. There is a wide range to choose from and you will ensure that optimal comfort is achieved.

Recliner Options and Upgrades

To truly ensure optimal comfort, recliner chairs have the benefit of additional options and upgrades including:

  • Swivel bases
  • Power or manual recline
  • Rocker recliner
  • Unique seating spring system
  • Extended handles
  • High Lift Inclining Chair
  • Recline away from wall, and more.

Durability and Quality of the recliner chair

One important consideration is that you must be able to look underneath the reclining chair to determine:

  • Whether the frame has four sides
  • The material from which the base is made, whether hardwood or plastic.
  • Whether there is a mesh layer between the cushion and the springs.

These considerations will determine the quality and the durability of the chair. When shopping for a recliner chair, if the consultant does not allow you to view the underside of the chair, it is an immediate red flag. Ensure that you only use trusted, reputable providers such as Lay-Z-Boy for your recliner chair needs.

Fabric and measurements

Another personal option that you must consider is the upholstery fabric of your new recliner. There are many different fabrics and leather options to choose from, so this step in the process of obtaining a recliner chair may seem intimidating.
