For many, buying a recliner can be a daunting task if they’re looking for the best recliner in their living space but have nowhere to start. Our recliner buying guide from Watson’s outlines everything you need to know about recliners before deciding to purchase a new one for your living space. 

What Do I Need to Know?

There are many recliner options available to purchase, but it can be hard to find the right for you. While Waton’s has a large selection of available recliners, we understand that you may have specific needs and reasons for choosing a specific type of recliner. Watson’s hope to provide you with as much information as possible through this recliner guide no matter what type of recliner you choose. 

Your Living Space

Consider your space when choosing the right size recliner chair. Take the time to consider the dimensions and features of your room in which the recliner will be placed before you head to your furniture retailer. Measuring your room, taking pictures, and considering your room’s style can help build a smooth buying process. Once you’ve decided where your recliner will sit in your living space, then you can find the right type of chair for your space.

Choosing the Right Recliner

Finding the right chair means that the purchaser needs to consider their own personal dimensions. When it comes to the right furniture, one size does not fit all. Your goal should be to find personalized comfort and support no matter your size. This means that you should choose a size based on the height and style that appeals to you the most. Additionally, finding which fabrics, leathers, and handle options is important in finding the best recliner for your needs.

Recliner Buying Guide

A pivotal decision when selecting a recliner for your home is the choice of fabric or leather upholstery that best suits your needs. Some important factors to consider when choosing your chair cover include comfort, appearance, durability, maintenance, and cost. 

Leather’s distinctive grain and texture is where it gets most of its value. However, it is important to consider that not all leather is created the same way. The more processing leather undergoes, the less valuable the leather becomes. Make sure you know the type of leather that is covering the recliner you plan to buy. 

Those who decide on fabric upholstery should consider natural or human-made fibres when deciding on fabric recliners. Some fabrics offer unique properties that can withstand wear and tear including performance fabrics, stain-resistant fabrics, eco-friendly fabrics, antimicrobial fabrics, and pet-friendly fabrics. 

After deciding on an upholstery type, color, and pattern to coordinate with the rest of your room, buyers need to consider the cost of the recliners they hope to purchase.

Recliner Cost

Quality, customization, and upgrades are a few of many different factors that influence the cost of a recliner. It is important to consider how often your recliner will be used when determining if the price of the recliner can be made within your budget. 

Quality furniture is essential for daily use. Warranty and protection plans will also give you an idea of what your post-purchase protection options look like.
