Continue reading to find out what to consider before you take the plunge and treat yourself to a new recliner. 

What You Get

There’s nothing better than kicking back after a hard day at work in your comfortable reclining chair. These old school pieces have not historically been known for their sleek and stylish aesthetic but times have changed. There’s now a huge range of products on the market that suit all decors and styles. You can choose from every fabric imaginable, a range of different mechanisms and any size which means they are accessible for all. As well as making a stylish addition to any room a recliner can be great for your posture and health. With many offering lower back support and the option to raise your feet above heart level who knew that being so comfy could actually be good for you. Raising your feet above heart level will improve your circulation and reduce swelling and soreness in your legs, something that will sound appealing to people who find themselves on their feet for most of the day. The added extra lower back support will reduce the amount of stress on your ligaments and muscles that’s caused by slouching therefore improving your posture and decreasing the risk of back strain and pain. 

Swivel Recliners

Swivel recliners are the newest addition to the reclining chair family. Many of them look sleek and minimalist meaning they fit perfectly into any home that has a modern touch. They are also great for supporting your lower back so as we mentioned before you’ll be less likely to develop back pain from slouching. As well as supporting people who have mobility issues they are great for working from home as these chairs offer great support and comfort for all. If working from home isn’t your thing they’re also great for gaming and watching sport. With this high end alternative to a classic recliner you’ll get ultimate comfort and enjoyment when you choose to sit back, relax and enjoy some “you” time.

Motorised Recliners

If you’ve ever had a manual recliner you’ll know that it can sometimes be difficult to reach the lever and you’ll end up twisting in many different directions trying to find it. This is not good for your back. Luckily, this is a thing of the past as motorised recliners have swooped in to save the day. You get the same level of comfort and support with the luxury of being able to press a button to sit back and recline. An important factor to consider when choosing a motorised recliner is its weight. A manufacturer’s choice of motor can make the chair really heavy so you need to make sure that you’re able to move it when repositioning. If you ask your sales representative then they’ll be able to give you information about this prior to your purchase.


Purchasing a motorised reclining chair really is an easy investment to make. By considering the above points you can choose the perfect chair for you and never look back.
