Recliners: Comfortable, Inviting—and Now More Stylish Than Ever
Gone are the days of the clumsy eyesore your grandpa once nodded off in. Today’s recliners are downright stylish and available in a huge array of designs, fabrics and colors to complement any home. Beyond reclining, they can rock, swivel and power up infinitive positions for comfort. When it comes to choosing a recliner, one size definitely does not fit all.
How to choose the right recliner:
Price shop. While you may want a top-of-the-line recliner that’s a few thousand dollars, that may not be realistic. Instead, set your budget and focus on the best recliners in your price range.
Choose a fabric. From leather to leather blends, cotton to plush, there’s a lot to consider. If you have kids or pets, you may want to stay away from plush recliners. Durable and stain-resistant fabrics may be a better choice.

Know your style. With today’s recliners, you don’t have to choose comfort over style. Do you fancy an ample, overstuffed recliner or a sleek, modern design? Choose the one that complements your other furniture and accessories.

Find your size. While that huge recliner looks pretty inviting—will it fit in the space you have? Be sure to measure the space and the recliner before you make a purchase. While some recliners need as much as three feet of free space behind them to fully recline—the latest options known as zero wall recliners require only three inches of space between the chair and the wall given their smart design.
Consider your options. Today’s recliners can do amazing things. Some can swivel and rock. Power-operated models provide infinite positions for ultimate comfort. While others serve up style and convenience with cup holders and hidden cubbies. It’s all about what works for you and your budget.
