Our advice Buying Guide

With small recliners, you can finally say goodbye to bulky motion chairs in your apartment! These amazing armchairs are cropped to keep you and your entire family comfortable and cozy without taking up valuable floor space.

No matter the season, there's always a reason (no rhyme intended) and a good excuse to recline, kick back, relax, and put both your feet up in a comfy recliner. Regardless of what your mobility, comfort and support needs are, you'll be able to select the chair that best suits your personal preferences with the wide selection currently available in the market.

Comfort should be your priority when choosing a small recliner, so you'd be able to make good use out of your new furniture. Your goal, after all, is to sink into the chair, relax, and never wish to get up!

How to measure for a recliner?

First things first, it's important that you take the dimensions of a recliner as well as the room space you have available. It’s worth noting that a small recliner should be positioned between 250 mm and 900 mm away from walls. This is to make room for the reclining action. Bear in mind what we just told you as you have a small room to work on. Petite recliners are the exact recliners you need to incorporate into your home.

The perfect recliner will let your feet reach the ground while in a sitting position. Your head, on the other hand, should comfortably fit the headrest. It's also important for your new small recliner to fit your room's aesthetics.

What are the basic types of reclining mechanisms?

Most recliners have either a power or manual mechanism. Most manual small recliners have a handle release just at the sides of the chairs to elevate the footrest so your legs are at a position that's most comfortable. The only downside to manual small recliners is you'd need to utilize your weight in resetting your chair back to the original position.

Power action small recliners operate with a handset or buttons at the chair's side. The power action will enable you to have control over the reclining position without having to break a sweat. All you have to do is press up and down and you'll be able to fully relax in your new chair!

How to maintain a recliner?

All small recliners come with care guides that you'll use to prolong a product's life. Before you purchase or use a small recliner, make sure you check the maintenance guide. Be careful when you're using wet cleaning products, most especially if you’ve bought an electric power-assisted recliner as their use is not recommended. If you want a small recliner that requires the least bit of maintenance, your best choice would be a leather recliner with a manual mechanism.
