Leather recliners are the epitome of luxury. They come in any color, can be large or small, and can be electric or manually reclined. There are some that will even lift you out of your chair when you are done relaxing. Here are some tips for how to buy the best leather recliner.
The most important decision to make when choosing a recliner is whether or not you want an electric or manual recliner. Manual recliners tend to have the handle that you pull to recline, or they use the weight of your body pushing back on the back of the chair to recline it. With an electric recliner, there is a button you can push to recline then another button to come back to a seated position.
An extension of the electric recliner is the recliner that will recline back for relaxation and also recline forward and lift you out of your chair.
Another important choice is to select a chair that fits your space. There are smaller chairs that recline for smaller spaces. For larger sitting areas there are oversized recliners, reclining leather loveseats and reclining leather couches and sectionals. All of these come in almost any color to complement your space.
There are a number of different accessories that you can select to have on your leather recliner too. Some chairs have storage in the armrests, cup holders, USB or other electrical outlets and some even come with a detachable/removable writing desks.
Recliners can range in price from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars. If you want the leather look, but not the leather price, consider a faux, or synthetic leather recliner. The synthetic leather will not hold up as well to constant direct sunlight or pets. But, visually, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between real leather and faux leather. The only clear difference is the price tag.
The most important part of selecting a leather recliner is physically going to a store and sitting in the chair. In the age of internet shopping, it is unusual to go to a place to try something out first. But when shopping for a leather chair, it is necessary. You can always go back to your computer and order it online, but make sure you try them out.
As with any decision you make, buying the best leather recliner will be based on what will fit your style, preferences and budget.
