How to Choose the Right Recliner

Choosing a recliner for your living room is no small feat. It’s a big decision. You’ll spend quite a few hours in that chair — watching sports games and binge-worthy sitcoms.  To make sure you find the right recliner that works in your space, here’s a quick guide on choosing the right recliner for you. The right chair is out there, you just have to look and sit.

Upholstery Options

Recliners come in a wide range of fabric, but the most common options are suede, regular and synthetic leather, and cloth. Let’s be honest – you want to make sure the recliner you choose is comfortable enough for naps and television show binges.  Here are some perks you get with these fabrics: 

Suede: Soft, stylish, and comfortable

Regular/Synthetic Leather: Durable and stylish

Cloth: Durable and comfortable


Quick pro tip – depending on your needs, some materials may be better suited for you than others. If you have a big family or pets, suede or cloth may not be the best material since they hold stains in easier.


Choosing The Right Size

You don’t want to choose the perfect chair, only to discover it’s too big for your living room! Double check the space where you want to put your chair so you can get one that’s a great fit. Keep in mind – since it’s a recliner, make sure it has room to fully ‘recline’ backwards (don’t let a wall get in the way!)


Matching Your Décor
