Riser recliner chairs are designed to help users get in and out of their seat with minimal hassle. From comfort to practicality, there are many issues you will need to take into account when buying one of these specialist seating solutions. To help you decide which is the best type of chair for you, here are five things to bear in mind.
1. Ease of use
Ease of use is a key consideration, especially if you suffer from mobility problems or debilitating medical conditions such as back pain or arthritis. Most riser recliner chairs can be operated with the simple touch of a button, allowing you to move from a sitting position to a standing posture with ease and comfort. This can make day to day life much more convenient and give you greater freedom of movement.
A chair that is too short, too high or too wide and deep can be uncomfortable, restrictive and put added pressure on your body. To avoid these problems, you need to make sure that the chair you buy offers sufficient support for your back and legs and promotes healthy posture while allowing you to spread your weight evenly across the seat. You should also check the dimensions of the frame to ensure it is suitable for your individual proportions.
It is also important to consider the width, height and depth of the chair to ensure it is the right size for your chosen room. In addition, you should check that you have enough space to accommodate for it when it is fully reclined. At Adjustamatic, our riser recliners include an innovative Wallhugger® feature, which allows the seat to be positioned within a few inches of the wall. This means that the backrest moves away from the wall rather than into it when it reclines, helping to save space.
As well as functionality, you need to think about how the chair will look in your home. Fortunately, there are many upholsteries to choose from so you shouldn’t struggle to find a style that suits your home décor, whether it’s modern or traditional. We may also be able to match the fabric of the chair to your current furniture so that you don’t have to spend time and money redecorating.
Then there are added features to think about. For example, do you want the leg rest to rise as the chair reclines, or would you prefer to control these parts separately? It’s a good idea to ask yourself questions like this beforehand to make sure you are getting everything you need.
Once you have taken all of these points into consideration, you can arrange for a home consultation from one of our advisors for advice and to view our full range and fabrics. This should help you to make up your mind and purchase with confidence.
