WHAT YOU SHOULD CONSIDER BEFORE YOU BUY A RECLINER

THE TOP 5 THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN BUYING A RECLINER  

Recliners are a great alternative if you are looking to upgrade your generic lounge suite. Recliners are perfect for those who are looking for something more comfortable for their family, especially for future years to come. Everyone loves a good recliner that they can recline back and lean into to relax after a long week. There are numerous different recliners that are available on the market and if you are searching for the perfect one some real consideration needs to go into the buying process.
 

WHY BUY A RECLINER? 

While recliners have very similar qualities as a normal sofa, they have added benefits that a couch does not. Recliners are known to assist with combating stress. This is due to the position that your body is in when sitting in a recliner helping to reduce tension in the body. If your back is strained or you find you have tension in your spine or shoulders due to sitting for long hours or from old age, a recliner will help to ease that pain.
 
It is important to remember that not all recliners are built the same and thus are not all of the same quality. It is important to invest in a good quality recliner as that will be the one that provides you with the comfort and support you need.
 

OUR TOP 5 THINGS YOU NEED TO TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION WHEN PURCHASING A RECLINER FOR YOUR HOME

1 COST 

If you are weighing up between various similar recliners, the price may be the biggest driver for your final choice. Recliners are generally more expensive than just a normal chair or sofa – they are more than just a chair and have added functions that drive up the price. So, it is important to establish a strict budget before you start your shopping endeavours. The more added extras that your recliner has, and the better its quality and finishes are the more expensive it will be.
 

2 TYPES OF RECLINERS

As mentioned before, there are many different styles of recliners. Therefore, regardless of what you first had in mind you may decide to go a different route once you view a few different options. It is important that the recliner you select properly suits you and your lifestyle, as well as your needs.
 

3 SIZE

Don’t let some people fool you, size does matter, particularly when it comes to fitting furniture into the rooms of your home. It is vital that you properly measure out the space in the room you plan on placing the recliner in to ensure that there is enough space for the recliner to fully open without bumping into anything, as well as enough space to still move and walk around in the room. After you determine what size will be fit into your living room, you will need to consider if it complements your body type to ensure it will effectively support you.
 

4 MATERIAL USED

The type of material and its quality will play a major role in whether you purchase a particular recliner or not. Recliners are available in various styles, materials, and finishes – and can be made from different types of fabrics. There are some material types that are more expensive than others, such as leather, as the cost of the raw material is higher.
 

FABRIC UPHOLSTERY

Fabric recliners are extremely comfortable and cosy which is why most people are more drawn to them. Fabric recliners can be crafted from different kinds of materials from velvet, cotton and chenille to linen, polyester and acrylic blends. It is important you choose a fabric that breathes well to ensure it stays looking and feeling as fresh as possible as time goes by. As with anything there are positives and negatives, one downside to fabric recliners is that they can be easily stained and so require much more maintenance than leather recliners.
 

LEATHER UPHOLSTERY

Leather recliners are perfect for adding some class and style to your room. Leather recliners do not just look great, they also feel great. Leather is a much more durable material than fabric and so you may find that it will last longer in your home if properly looked after and maintained. However, leather recliners are prone to getting scratched and scarred by children and pets with sharp nails or claws.
 

5 FEATURES OR FUNCTIONS 

Nowadays recliners come with so many added features that set them apart from simple sofas or rockers. If you want to get the most out of your recliner, we recommend that you look for a recliner that has extra features of functions to make it a worthwhile investment.
 

CUP OR GLASS HOLDER 

Cup or glass holders are a great extra to have in your recliner as it gives you a safe place to set down your drink without it spilling. This simple yet convenient addition will be greatly appreciated when reclining back after a long week at work to enjoy an ice-cold drink.
 

WIRELESS BATTERY OR USB PORTS 

In today’s day and age, it is almost essential that you stay connected at all times. Having a wireless battery or USB ports built into your recliner allows you to charge your electronics from your recliner and stay in touch with family and friends at all times. The wireless feature has the added benefit of having no cords for anyone to trip and fall over, and when the power goes off it can still function.
