Recliner Reviews:

What we are hoping to provide is a general guide to buying a recliner chair and give you things to consider and some top models to choose from. You need to consider style, fit, price and fabric. Pick a style first and try to figure out which room the "comfortable chair" will go in. That will give you an idea of what color to choose (to match the surrounding furniture). Next, determine how much money you want to spend (recliners are $300-$2000) and then decide which type of recliner you want (two-position recliner, rocker recliner, push-back recliner). The traditional two-position recliner is the cheapest type available and has a mechanism where the user can pull out the foot rest and fully recline. They are very comfortable and affordable but tend to be limited in colors, fabrics, and styles. The Rocker Recliner, or wall-saver recliner, is the most popular type of recliner and comes in the leather-vinyl combination (leather match). You get a wide range of reclining angles and the "wall-saver" option is great for small places. The flex-back recliner, or push-back recliners, are the most expensive and often come in leather. The stylish simplicity of these chairs help them fit into modern homes. Keep reading to find out which are the best recliners and where to buy them.
