Riser Recliners are great because they are essentially reclining relaxer chairs, just with an added bonus. Unless you own one yourself, it's difficult to tell a riser recliner from a normal chair. This means you get the total comfort expected of a relaxer chair; the kind of comfort that makes you never want to get up. There is no loss of quality on riser recliners, infact most comfort chair manufacturers make riser versions of their chairs, for example Lazy Boy.
At the press of a button you can alter the position of the recliner, from a normal upright position to fully reclined. This allows you to experience a plethora of positions, thereby never suffering from pressure point soreness. If you feel an ache from pressure, simply change the position you're sitting in!
The chairs are operated by small motors which power a piston at the rear of the chair, allowing it to move up or down. It is possible to change the speed of the mechanics, depending on how fast you want the chair to move. If you find it difficult to move due to things like back pain, it is advisable to have a slower, more controlled chair movement. This will minimise potential pain occuring in tender areas.
There are so many different types of riser recliner available on the market it's crazy. Pretty much every taste has been catered for, with a massive range of designs from traditional material to black leather.
Leather riser recliner chairs are mostly at the top end of the price range. These look great in pretty much all rooms, regardless of room design or furniture. There is something about a black leather chair that makes a room inviting and friendly. Furtheremore, there are few chairs that can match the sheer comfort of leather.
That is not to say material chairs are not woth considering. There are many good quality materials available, in a variety of different colours and designs. Even though the prices of material recliners are generally lower, the quality is definitely not sacrificed. Infact it is even possible to pick up a better deal for the same amount as a leather chair!
