When investing in a recliner chair, you will want to find something that fits your needs, gives you excellent comfort and is going to last. There’s no point spending money on a poor quality chair that won’t stand the test of time or intended use.
As purveyors of quality comfort furniture, including recliners and lift chairs, we believe we can help you find the perfect chair. Below are 3 tips to help you find the best recliner chair.
Tip 1: Functionality
Functionality is the first thing you need to think about when finding your perfect recliner chair. The chair should have the ability to do what you want and need in terms of mobility and comfort. Things to consider:
- Should it be Manual, Motorised, or Battery operated? Motorised chairs add luxury to the recliner experience and will also be beneficial for users with mobility concerns.
- What motion functions do you want or require? At IMG Comfort, we have a range of electric recliner chairs and lift chairs with varying motion abilities. Our chairs include functions such as an integrated footstool, swivel, a reclining motion, adjustable head and neck support, rocking and gliding. Our electric lift chairs also offer excellent lumbar support and a lift function to help the user move effortlessly from a sitting position to a standing one.
Tip 2: Size
After picking your functionality, you will want to pick the size of the chair. The size of the chair will need to be appropriate for both the user of the chair (in regards to height and weight) as well as appropriate for the space of the room.
When you are seated in the recliner, your arms should rest comfortably on the armrests and your legs should be at a 90-degree angle with your feet flat on the floor. The seat of the chair should also accommodate your hips, without being too snug. Recliners and lift chairs from IMG come in 2-3 sizes (Compact, Standard and Large) depending on the model you choose.
The second size consideration is in regards to the space you plan to put the chair. Ask yourself questions like; Will it be free-standing in the room or will it be near a wall? Is there room for an ottoman or does it need an integrated footstool? This should help you to make a final decision on the size requirements of the chair.
Tip 3: Material & Colour
Our third tip is in regards to style choices – material and colour. You will want to think about what material and colour is going to be most suitable for your home and the intended use of the chair.
IMG have a multitude of wood, top-grain leathers and fabrics options available in a variety of colours for your chosen lift or recliner chair. Opting for a material that is easy to clean, such as the high-performance Aquaclean range, will help your chair last.
