O’ the joys of kicking back in your recliner enjoying that game or movie anticipating the next great…zzzzzzz. Now that’s a good recliner! The kind that is so comfortable that it’s just as good as sleeping in your bed.
So, how do you pick that perfect recliner? First thing you always have to think about with recliners and furniture is how long do you plan to have it and how much are going to use it? Because if it’s going to be YOUR chair for a long time that’s used every night then price can’t be the driving force. It’s called an investment so price is third on the list.
First on the list is, unfortunately, size. You have to measure your room. If it don’t fit, you can’t sit. If you have a small room or an apartment then your choices are limited. So space is your first step.
Second step is comfort. This is the chair that you will pass out on every night so it has to be very comfortable. Try out every recliner in the stores and they’re like shoes. You will know the very moment you sit in it. No exceptions. Don’t think that you can mold it to your tush or make it comfortable over time. That could happen but don’t take the chance. Try every recliner and the one recliner to rule them all will be felt the moment you kurplunk in it when shopping.
Price. Now price comes into play. Recliners can be expensive. While this is third in the priority line, it’s still a factor. And, you’d be amazed how affordable good recliners can be .
Style and color. Recliners have an image of being the elephant in the room but not anymore. There are so many styles, colors, sizes that all are comfortable.
Nifty features. Recliners have come a long way, baby. Massage thingamijiggies in them. Full reclining positions. Adjustable head sets. Rocking and/or Gliding. Built in speakers, drink holders, ice cooler hidden inside, etc. And, some even can be easily disassembled for storage and moving.
Biggest tip is to SHOP AROUND. There are so many different brands and styles that the perfect one that fits all of the above exists. You just have to find ’em. Researching on the Internet is a great start but (pun intended) your butt in the actual chair is the final word.
If you’re freaked out about not picking the right one then try before you buy at your local rent-to-own store.
Just another ShopRTO comfy furniture tip.
