How to Buy a Recliner

Here are a few tips to help find the right Recliner for your home.

Yes, recliners are happening again… but they aren’t quite the same giant dad chairs you might remember from your youth. Today, you can find more modern chairs that don’t even look like recliners; all the reclining elements are hidden. These are definitely the way to go. If something screams “I’m a recliner” to you, back away slowly and keep looking for other options.

Recliners are one piece of furniture that you just have to buy in person. Whether it looks like one or not, the whole point of a recliner is the comfy factor, but it’s important to make sure it won’t overwhelm your space. If you aren’t confident in your ability to visualize this, bring along a photo of where you plan to put your recliner when you go shopping, and ask for help with the task of imagining. You can also try putting a photo of your current furniture alongside a photo of the recliner and simply seeing whether it seems to match -- if it looks like it doesn’t go, it doesn’t go.
