Buying Guide

High back recliners are casual living room furniture pieces that provide the support you need to remain comfortable for hours at a time. When it comes to choosing between electric or manual recliners, there is no right choice. It all comes down to personal preference.

The simple difference between the two is that one has a motor and the other doesn’t. You may be most familiar with manual recliners where you simply pull a mechanism that uses your body weight to push the chair back into the reclined position. These are easy to use and are more affordable than a motorized recliner.

If money is no object, an electric or power recliner offers the convenience and luxury of pushing a button and automatically transitioning into a reclined position. However, keep in mind that power recliners need to be plugged into a power source. If there are no outlets near where you want to place the chair, you’ll have to investigate battery-powered options.

A high back recliner that’s worth buying must have durable upholstery. You wouldn’t want a rip in the covering nor a seat full of stains after using your recliner for only a while. With this in mind, make sure the fabric is of high quality, easy to clean, stain-resistant, long-lasting, and soft to touch. In this case, leather ticks off all the right boxes.

The cushions should also be comfy to sit and relax on while retaining their shape well. Make sure your high back recliner features high-density foam padding for the utmost comfort.

Additional features to look for include an adjustable headrest, an extendable footrest, a seamless reclining mechanism, along with a motion or massage setting.
