If you frequently have guests, a recliner to sleep in isn’t a bad idea. They’re great to have around for napping or during lazy days. There are so many different recliners to choose from, but we’ve done our research and compiled a list of the best just for you. Before we get started, here are some things you should know about recliners while you’re shopping. Afterward, check out our list of amazingly comfy recliners.
Material: What is the chair upholstered with? Most of the recliners on this list are either leather or fabric. Fabric is warmer, but leather is easier to clean and can be more comfortable. Whichever you choose is a personal preference.
Dimensions: The size of the recliner can tell you whether it’s going to fit in your space. Some of these recliners are large lazy chairs while others are more compact. Choose the one that fits best where you need it.
Color: This is a stylistic choice. Most of the recliners on our list come in a few different colors, so you can choose the one that matches your other furniture. Brown and black is most common for leather recliners.
Power: Power chairs will recline and lift with the help of a motor, so you don’t have to manually open and close the chair. That’s pretty amazing, especially for the elderly. They cost more, but they’re super convenient.
Remote: Power chairs will sometimes come with a remote that allows you to choose when to open and close the chair, how much you want to be reclined and other factors. These remotes are attached so you won’t lose them!
Weight: For delivery, shipping, and general furniture rearranging purposes, knowing the weight of your chair is important. Choose one that you know you can move and set up on your own, especially if you often rearrange furniture.
Now that you know all there is to know about sleeping recliners, we can get to our list. We’ve chosen the most comfortable recliners so that you can spend more time relaxing and less doing research! If you’re pressed for time, check out our top pick and budget pick first. They’re our personal favorites. The rest of the list is full of amazing recliners, so make sure you finish it before you get back to snoozing.
