How to Buy a Recliner that will last you for many years

Having a nice reclining chair is one of life's little treasures. If you can get the right chair, you will enjoy it for many years to come.

Finding that right chair isn't as easy as you might think. If you want something to last you for years to come, you will want to select one that is good quality, with a great warranty, and that fits you proportionally.

Buy a Recliner that will last you for many years
  1. The first step is to look for a manufacturer that builds sturdy recliners. You don't want to replace your chair in a couple of years because the reclining mechanism goes out on you. Lazy Boy is one manufacturer that builds a sturdy chair. Many people are under the assumption that Lazy Boy is just the style of a chair when it is an actual manufacturer who makes great quality recliners.
  2. Next you will want to try them out. When sitting on a reclining chair, make sure that your legs touch the ground and that the edge of the seat fits comfortable under your knees. Chairs will come in all shapes and sizes and it's important to find one that fits proportionally to you. Some are also more narrow. It's important to always "test drive" your chair and not just buy one sight unseen.
  3. Once you've selected a chair that feels comfortable and is a good manufacturer, check on the material. Microfiber is a good fabric because it is made from polyester. If you are buying a cotton chair, you will have to be very careful with it. Leather is a great choice because it is durable and easy to clean, although you will pay much more for the chair.
  4. After you've selected a chair that you love, have it treated with a fabric protection. Even if you think you are not going to eat on your chair, that doesn't mean you won't. And if you have guests over and they spill on it, you don't want to have to worry about it. Have it treated with a stain proof spray.
