Recliners have been immensely popular ever since their introduction, with a new level of comfort offered to consumers. With recliners now coming in such a variety of shapes and styles, you might be unsure of how to choose the right type – thankfully, we’re here to help.
The reason for the popularity of recliners is simple: they are relaxing, they are easy to operate, and they provide great support and relief for your back and neck. To get the most comfort out of your recliner, it’s important to make sure that you get the right type for you.
Types of recliner
When choosing a recliner, consider what you’ll need and want it for the most. If you struggle with back pain, then all types of recliner will provide the same basic function of reclining back, which relives pressure and tension in the upper and lower back. Using a recliner also helps with good posture and positioning, especially when compared to sitting on a normal chair or sofa.
Rocker recliners do exactly what the name suggests – they rock back and forth as well as reclining, which can help you doze off if you have trouble sleeping – a surprising amount of people use their recliners to sleep!
If you’re looking for the ultimate relaxation chair, then a massage recliner is just what you need. As well as reclining, these chairs will massage your back and legs, and some come with a heating function.
If the traditional recliner look isn’t for you, they’re also available in wing-back chair designs and contemporary styles. Whatever the style of your home, there’s bound to be recliners designed to suit your taste.
If you have weak knees or limited use of your legs, then a lift chair recliner is a great option for you. Motorised so that the seat is lifted up from the base of the chair, lift chairs make it much easier to get back up once you’re done relaxing.
Recliners can often be made to your exact specifications, especially useful if your reason for getting a recliner is related to back or neck problems rather than just purely for relaxation – but a custom made recliner can also mean you’re getting the ultimate chair for relaxation with a recliner tailored specifically to your requirements.
So, when it comes to choosing the right type of recliner, consider what your needs are – is it purely a luxury for the finest relaxation furniture, or is it a bit of a necessity due to complications with posture and back pain?
