If you’re in the market for reclining furniture, the one thing that’s probably most important to you is comfort! Test out a reclining sofa, loveseat or chair before buying. It may look comfortable, but you need to make sure it feels as snuggly as it looks.
Consider your available floor space before making a purchase, too. Measure the recliner when it’s upright and when it’s in the reclined position. Do you have enough room for a 3 seater recliner sofa? How about a recliner sofa set? Don’t forget you’ll want to leave ample room between your reclining furniture and other items, such as accent chairs and tables, so you don’t disrupt traffic flow.
What type of material do you prefer? Leather is a popular choice. A leather reclining sofa is durable and can usually stand up to claw and bite marks from your beloved pets! Or if you have little ones (‘nough said!) you may want to invest in a fabric recliner sofa that’s stain-resistant.
You’ll also want to choose between manual and power recline. Manual recliners typically have a lever or require body weight to recline, while a power reclining sofa can lean back with the push of a button.
