There are few better feelings than when you sit down after a long day and take the weight off your feet. All the stress and troubles of the day seem to disappear and you feel nice and relaxed, very peaceful. If you want to improve that feeling considerably, consider buying a Relaxer Chair.
Relaxer chairs come in all shapes, sizes, colours, materials and some even have special functions like massage chairs. You name it, there’s probably a relaxer chair that fits the description. You can even buy garden relaxer chairs, which you can use in the garden or on your garden patio to catch some rays on a nice day.
When buying a relaxer chair, there are some important things you should consider:
Does the chair fit in with design of the room in which you intend to place it? For example, if your living room is bright and airy, there is not much point buying a very dark coloured chair and putting it in a corner- it will look very much out of place. In this case, you should think about buying a light coloured chair in whites/blues or creams. Alternatively if your room is full of lovely old wood furniture, consider buying a darker relaxer chair made from oak or other dark woods. Make sure the chair fits the room!
This is a personal preference really, but equally it can depend on what else is in the room. The best relaxer chairs are made from leather as it is durable and looks very classy. Black leather chairs are particularly popular, however lighter leather is also in fashion. Leather is also very comfortable to sit on, and doesn’t tend to attract smells. However on a blisteringly hot day, make sure you’re wearing a t shirt before you sit down! Other material like synthetics are also an option. These are generally found on cheaper chairs, but if you get the right combination of synthetic and metal or wood, you’re definitely on to a winner! Pure wood relaxer chairs are also popular in the market.
The main reason why you’d want to buy a chair to relax in at the end of the day. The simplest way to see if you like a chair is to SIT DOWN and test it out! You’ll know if it’s the one for you because you will feel totally at ease and you won’t want to move. If you suffer from back pain, you should look at a chair with maximum padding on the back support, and one that provides support to your legs too. This will take the pressure off your spine and make you feel nice and lazy.
Fixed or Reclinable?
A good question. And depends on how much you will use the chair. If it’s going to become your main place to sit down, you should go for reclinable as you want full versitility. If it’s going to be used infrequently, just go for a fixed because they are generally cheaper. Let’s put it this way though- when you sit down in the realxer chair, it’s one thing going “oh yes this is comfy”, and another thing being able to flick a switch and recline back going “OOOOOOHHHEEEE” as you feel the full comfory of a recliner.
You’ll find a new type of relaxer chair on the market these days- a massage chair. Again if you suffer from a bad back or arthritis, consider getting one of these. At the touch of a button, the chair sends pulses through your body, massaging your back and legs and taking all your strain away. Other special functions include built in fridges, drinks holders, tv remote holders and heaters for cold winter days. You’re looking at an increase in price with these options, but they are well worth it, especially if you’re a sports fan.
Do you want a foot rest or don’t you? Well most recliner chairs these days come with a foot rest. Ideally if you’re planning to spend a lot of time in the relaxer chair, you’ll want a foot rest. It’s just more comfy that way. But factors such as room space and price can be issues when looking at foot rests.
