Rise & Recliner Chairs: A Buyer's Guide

Posted on May 16, 2018

Sherborne Standard Olivia Fabric Riser Recliner chair

An inappropriate chair can bring extreme discomfort and add stress to your feet, back, knees and thighs further worsening your condition instead of helping it.

Buying a comfortable rise and recliner chair that gives you the best body support is therefore imperative. To get the best comfort and value for your money, you need to understand exactly what you should be looking for when buying a rise & recliner chair.

Single vs Dual MotorĀ 

With a single-motor chair, you’ll be able to move your seat back to the desired position. This model features a footrest that moves with the recliner automatically. So, if you want different seating and footrest positions, this chair may not be suitable for you.

With a dual motor, you can adjust the footrest and seat position independently. You can recline comfortably while finding a comfortable foot resting position. In addition, a dual motor chair has a full reclining angle to give the desired seating position for you.

Chair Style

This includes chair colour and upholstery material – the upholstery can be fabric or leather. If you are looking for different colour and design choices, a fabric model is perfect. But, maintaining fabric upholstery is difficult – over time, the fabric can become stained and succumb to wear and tear.

However, leather is known to age well, and is low on maintenance too. If cosines and warmth are a priority, a fabric model is perhaps best for you.

Well-Fitting Chair

Test the chair by sitting on it, before buying. At Recliners and Beds we are on hand to offer our expertise. knowledge and high-quality service in making sure you have the perfect chair. We will assess and find the correct chair for you, by considering the seat height, width and depth – you should feel comfortable and relaxed. For able body support, rise & recliner chairs must feature:

  • Extra support for your head and lower back
  • Excellent leg support for your entire lower leg, down to the heel. The leg-rest must be at the same height as the chair seat
  • Correct cushioning that is soft enough to be comfortable, but firm enough to not allow you to feel the chair’s hard frame.

Recliners and Beds have a range of fabric and leather rise & recliner chair models, which are all warranty backed to ensure complete peace of mind for you.
