There’s nothing Dad loves more than kicking back in a comfortable chair on a Sunday afternoon or at the end of a long day. Finding a recliner that’s a good fit for him and his lounging needs is simple with our tips.

 

Think Comfort

When it comes to recliners, comfort is key. You’ll want to select a recliner that offers total body and lumbar support, with a headrest that will cushion his head and neck. Look for a chair with a deep comfortable seat and plush cushioned back, and test the footrest to make sure that it’s comfortable and easy to adjust when he puts his feet up.

For the ultimate in relaxation, speciality recliners include built-in heat and massage options, and many power recliners are now available with built-in USB charging ports to power up his phone and devices while he kicks back.

 

Consider Function

Traditional rocker recliners rock when upright and lower to a reclined position with a hand lever. Swivel recliners allow him to face any direction, so he never misses a moment of the big game.

Power lift recliners are the perfect choice for ergonomics and comfort lifestyle. At just the touch of a button, a power lift recliner allows him to effortlessly relax and recline, or smoothly glide back to a standing position.

If you want the luxury of a power recliner without the look of a power cord, many new power recliners offer a wireless power option. Rechargeable lithium-ion battery packs allow you to place his recliner anywhere in the living room without needing to plug into a wall outlet, and provide about a week of wireless reclining before needing to be recharged.

 

Choose Quality

Leather recliners are the most durable. Features like gently distressed or soft plush top-grain leathers, with or without nailhead trim, create a rugged masculine or soft luxury appearance and feel. If he prefers upholstered fabric, you can get the same feel from synthetic microfiber, which also resists wrinkling and moisture. For long lasting durability, performance fabrics are both stain and fade resistant, and available in a variety of patterns.

You’ll also want to focus on the frame, and look for heavy-duty screws which can withstand the motion of a recliner. While a hardwood frame can be a bit of an investment, a solid wood frame is built to last, making it worth the investment.
