What is the average cost of a good recliner?

The cost of a quality recliner armchair will vary depending on whether it is leather or fabric, whether it is a manual or power recliner chair, and whether it includes additional features like storage, heated seats or integrated charging - but you can expect to pay from about £500 for a standard model, up to £1500 or more for a luxury option. A quality recliner chair is more of an investment piece of furniture, and something you will get many years of use from as long as you properly care for it.

Are recliners good or bad for your back?

Generally, recliner chairs are good for your back, as most recliner models come with additional supportive padding that can help to alleviate back pain. A quality recliner armchair will be constructed from multiple layers of supportive foam, sometimes with additional fibre wadding or even pocket springs, all of which can provide great comfort and help to prevent and alleviate back pain.

Is it worth buying a power recliner?

We certainly think so - and many of our customers agree! There are few better feelings than pressing the recline button on an electric recliner chair at the end of a long day, and feeling it smoothly glide into your ultimate sitting position. Power recliner chairs are particularly helpful for older people or those with reduced mobility, as they can simply recline at the touch of a button, and return to their original position the same way once it’s time to get up again.

How much does an electric recliner cost to run?

While the specifics vary from model to model, an electric recliner sofa typically consumes 14W per day on standby mode – or around 10p per day. In motion, a recliner uses 58W of power to actually recline, roughly working out to 8p for a couple hours of constant use.
