What features to look for in an ideal recliner for sleeping?
Size matters when it comes to reclining. Size, in this case, refers to the general dimensions of the recliner. The recliner you buy should be able to fit into the room without looking out of place. If you live in a small residence, you can pick out a wall-hugger recliner such as the NHI Express Addison recliner to save on space. Even when reclined, wall-huggers do not eat up much space.
Another thing to consider is the size of the chair. How wide the recliner is will indicate if you have enough room to be comfortable. Small recliners go up to 33 inches wide while standard recliners will stretch up to 44 inches.
You can measure your width to have a rough idea of the size of the recliner to get.
Weight capacity refers to the maximum amount of mass the recliner can support without breaking down. Different recliner chairs, depending on their size, can support varying amounts of weight. Standard recliners can support 200 to 300lbs comfortably. There are larger recliners designed to withstand more weight. These large recliners can hold a maximum of 500lbs.
Many manufacturers indicate the maximum weight capacity of their product specifications. It is only prudent to check the capacity before having to squeeze in every time or return it. In the case the information is not indicated, look for customer reviews to get an idea.
Understanding the different types of recliners in the market will do a couple of things. It will open your range of choices, and it will lessen the confusion when selecting.
As the name indicates, the recliner has a rocking motion to it. Many people over thousands of years have found the rocking motion soothing.

Who does not want to have a little massage while relaxing? Massage recliners are popular and they come with an array of accessories. Offering multiple massage modes allows the user to pick the setting they most need. Different modes can be controlled by remote control. Rather convenient don’t you think?

Recliners often spot cotton, leather, microfiber, wool or polyurethane fabrics. As a consumer, you can get each of these materials depending on the quality and design. The strength and grade of fabric will reflect on the cost of the recliner.
Some materials are more challenging to keep clean, especially in bright colors. Microfiber and polyurethane have proved a lot easier to clean. They are a favorite among busy households.
Check to see when the recliner you want has a warranty. Warranties are crucial especially if you are not entirely sure of the performance of the product. Warranties allow replacements, repairs, and refunds if there is a problem with the product. This is only allowed during the warranty period.
It is possible to get more features on a recliner that make it more convenient. Some models have heating pads. The heating pads can be used to relieve stress from the neck and back muscles.
In some recliners, they will provide an attachable tray that can be used to serve food. In cases where the users have physical limitations, the tray brings food and medicine closer.
