Recliners are a welcome addition to any room with enough space to have it, but you’ll want to make sure the padding and upholstery are built to last. A good chair will have a heavy-duty frame and screws, easy to use levers, or a quiet motor (if it’s electric) and include options like heat, massage, or built-in USB ports to charge smartphones. Fabric options seem never-ending, so the key is finding a material that’s durable and resists stains. In the end, a chair should feel comfortable, elevate your pressure points, be easy to operate, and let you relax for long periods of time. Here are a few other considerations to keep in mind as you shop.
