The three most popular and commonly used types of recliners are the two-position recliner, the rocker or wall-saver, and the pushback or flex-back. The traditional two position recliner is the cheapest and most basic of all types of recliners. Some of its areas are upholstered with genuine leather like the arm, seat base and leg. One can be bought for less than a hundred dollars. Several parts such as the back are covered by vinyl, unlike others fully covered with leather. The usual warranty period for these recliners is just one year. There are also few styles to choose from. The rocker recliner is the most famous type of recliner and therefore most largely manufactured. It can be rocked back and forth while sitting upright or reclined. It has many different adjustable reclining angles. The wall-saver option allows you to place it very close to the wall to save space. It cannot be rocked while it is against the wall. It has a larger selection of fabrics and styles. The warranty is usually 5 years on frame and the unit has a lifetime guarantee. It is also more expensive than two position recliner.
When you test out a used lazy boy recliner you may find the reclining mechanism too stiff or too loose. This is something that might be very easily adjusted even though it might have an impact on the price that the seller is asking. If you can, you may want to try adjusting the tension to see if this is a simple fix or something more seriously wrong with the reclining mechanism. Several companies sell slipcovers for Lazy Boy recliners and small problems with the upholstery may be easily fixed by purchasing a new slipcover. If the recliner you are considering purchasing already has a slipcover, be sure to remove it to see if the original upholstery is in good condition. Check with your local re-upholsterers to see if they can reupholster your recliner at a reasonable price. A used lazy boy recliner with a good frame and reclining mechanism may still be a bargain if you can get it reupholstered.
The cushion can be made from fiber or foam. Fiber cushion is filled with synthetic loose fibers. It is very durable but you wont be able to maintain the cushions shape. As a result, one area may have little padding while another area will have a lot of padding. Foam cushion is able to mold the persons body contour effectively. High quality foam cushion is made from memory foam. Gel cushion is able to distribute the persons weight evenly. Because it is made from gel, the manufacturer adds a cushion to reduce the pressure. Gel cushion is heavy and bulky so it is hard to move around. Air cushion is lightweight and able to relieve the pressures from the body. Air cushion may require more maintenance.
This class of recliner comes in a variety of styles and features. The motorized versions usually come with a remote control panel. This enables you to activate and deactivate different features on the recliner. Many relaxation recliners come with air massage systems. Air compression massages used to inflate and deflate air bags. These airbags push and pull on the larger muscles of the body for relief of stiffness. Relaxation recliners are built to help you unwind. A variety of therapeutic features including full body heat, vibration massage and even a built in MP3 music player provide a complete relaxation environment.
