Looking for reclining furniture that checks all your boxes? Furniture shopping can sometimes be stressful, but at Wallaroo’s we strive to make it an easy and pleasant experience. Reclining furniture comes with its own set of challenges, but we’re here to help! Here are 4 tips for finding the best reclining furniture.
Tip #1 Go for high-quality reclining mechanisms.
The first decision to make when it comes to choosing reclining furniture is whether you want a powered or manual piece. With powered, you’ll need to make sure you have an outlet nearby so your piece will operate properly. If you choose to go the powered route, make sure you know you’re getting a high-quality motor. At Wallaroo’s, we use German Okin motors in our powered reclining products. These are top-of-the-line motors that won’t quit working after a couple years like some other types. Our Dakota Powered Reclining Set is a great option for those looking for a living room set with powered mechanisms. If you decide to forego powered recliners, check out the Montana Manual Reclining Set!
Tip #2 Pay attention to the quality of the leather.
Everyone loves the look of leather, but it can sometimes be hard to keep looking nice. Cheaper reclining furniture is often upholstered with fake leather that will crack and peel, and that’s never a good look. Pay attention to the quality of leather when purchasing reclining furniture. Our Nirvana Reclining Sectional is made with top-grain leather which is recommended for furniture because of its durability and toughness. The difference between full-grain leather and top-grain leather is that the top layer of full-grain leather has been removed to give it a softer, more comfortable feel.
Tip #3 Look for the added features.
Another benefit to reclining furniture is it often has additional features that non-reclining furniture doesn’t always have. We’re talking cupholders, storage consoles, rocking chairs, fold-down tabletops, and more! That’s not to say you can’t ever find those features in non-reclining furniture. The Alex Sectional has a massive hidden storage compartment, and the Brooklyn Sectional has cup holders and a storage console!
Tip #4 If recliners aren’t your style, get creative!
Maybe reclining furniture isn’t your thing, that’s okay! We get creative here at Wallaroo’s to offer our customers a variety of products. If you love all the benefits of reclining furniture but it’s not not your style, check out the Cracken sectional! This sleek, modern sectional gives you the look you love with all the benefits of a reclining piece. We call the Cracken our lounge sectional because the backrests are adjustable. You can keep them in the seated position, or move them back to lounge in style!
