5 Things To Consider When Choosing a New Riser Recliner

We’ve been hand-crafting furniture here at The Recliner Factory for over 20 years now, helping thousands of customers like you relax and enjoy a great quality of life.

With so many options to choose from, we recognize that selecting a new riser recliner can be quite a daunting task. To help make this process as easy as possible for you, we’ve put together 5 useful things to consider when choosing a new riser recliner:

1. Single or Dual Motor?

One of the first things you should consider is the type of riser recliner chair you need. They usually come in a choice of 2 options:

Single motor system

A single motor system is operated by one motor which controls all of the electric functions on the chair. This means the backrest, footrest and riser functions move in unison. 

Dual motor system

A dual motor system option allows independent operation of the seat and leg sections, giving you more variation in your access to positions.

2. Measurements

When choosing a new riser recliner the correct seat depth, height, width and foot rest position are all essential to your comfort.

A correctly fitting riser recliner ensures that you maintain a supportive and comfortable posture for the duration of time you are sat down.  

All of our riser recliners are available in a choice of five standard sizes– Petite, Standard, Petite with Standard width, Grand, and Grand with Petite width. This ensures that you are sitting in the most comfortable position chair for your specific needs and requirements.

3. Style

Your new riser recliner will be the focal point of your living room, so it’s important that you choose the correct style:

–  The pattern and colour of your new recliner should compliment your existing furniture and decor

–  Different backrest styles provide different levels of support. Opt for a waterfall back if you prefer more support.

– Arm rest styles- You will also need to consider the type of arm rest for your riser recliner which can range from traditional, scrolled or wooden finished.
