Things to bear in mind when buying a recliner chair

Do you have enough space – you’ll need to allow extra room for when the chair is fully reclined and extended. And, because recliner chairs tend to be a fair bit larger than heavier than a conventional armchair, you’ll also need to ensure the chair will fit through the door when it is delivered.

Chairs can be adjusted manually or electrically powered. Electrically powered chairs are also available with a single motor that will adjust the leg rest and the back rest at the same time or with a double motor where you can adjust the leg rest and back rest independently.

Some chairs also come fitted with a back-up battery just in case there is power cut, and you don’t find yourself stuck and unable to get out of the chair.

Financial Support when Buying Recliner Chair

Those with certain medical conditions may qualify for VAT exemption which will result in a considerable saving.

To claim this relief, you just need to confirm to the retailer that you are disabled or suffer from a long-term illness. In most cases this will be a simple box tick during the check out process, you don’t need to submit any documentation or personal details.
