Finding The Perfect Recliner for You

In the quest for the ultimate relaxation spot within our homes, finding the perfect recliner can be a game-changer. Whether you're settling down with a good book, gearing up for a movie marathon, or simply looking to unwind after a long day, the right recliner can provide unparalleled comfort and support. However, with so many options available—wall saver, overstuffed, glider, rocker, lift, and more—how do you choose the one that's right for you? This guide will walk you through the key considerations to help you find a recliner that fits both your space and your lifestyle.

Understand the Different Types of Recliners

Before diving into the specifics, let's break down the types of recliners available and what makes each unique:

Wall Saver Recliners: Ideal for small spaces, wall saver (or wall hugger) recliners are designed to require less clearance from the wall to recline, making them a great option for tight spaces.

Overstuffed Recliners: These recliners are all about comfort, with extra padding for a plush feel. They're perfect for those who prioritize softness and a cozy, enveloping seating experience. 

Glider Recliners: Glider recliners offer a smooth, horizontal motion that's soothing and can be particularly appealing for parents of newborns.

Rocker Recliners: Combining the comfort of a recliner with the relaxing motion of a rocking chair, rocker recliners are ideal for those who find movement comforting or helpful for dozing off.

Lift Recliners: Equipped with a motorized mechanism that tilts the chair up and forward, lift recliners are an excellent choice for individuals with mobility issues, making it easier to get in and out of the chair.

Consider Your Space

Space is a crucial factor when selecting a recliner. Measure your available space and remember that some recliners, like wall savers, are specifically designed for smaller areas. Ensure there's enough room for the recliner to extend fully without hitting other furniture or walls.

Identify Your Needs

Consider what you'll primarily use the recliner for. Do you need extra support for back issues? Is easy access a necessity due to mobility challenges? Or are you looking for a cozy spot to nurse your baby? Your primary use will guide you towards the type of recliner that best suits your needs.

Prioritize Comfort and Support

Sit in various recliners to test their comfort and support. Check if the chair supports your back and neck properly and if your feet touch the floor when seated. Remember, what feels comfortable for a few minutes in a showroom might feel different after extended use.

Evaluate the Build Quality

Look for a recliner with a sturdy frame, high-quality fabric or leather, and a reliable reclining mechanism. A well-built recliner should feel solid and smooth in operation.

Style Matters

Your recliner should complement your room's aesthetic. With a wide range of styles and materials available, you can find a recliner that not only feels great but looks great too.

Test the Features

Many recliners come with additional features such as built-in USB ports, heating, and massage options. Consider which, if any, of these features are important to you and test them out.
