Lounge chair furniture preferences have evolved in Australia, and recliner chairs are in demand. These premium furnishings, lever-controlled or power-operated, provide loads of benefits for new home owners setting up house, seniors requiring extra support, and everyday Australians with a taste for luxury.
Are recliner chairs good for you?
Sitting in an upright position on an unsuitable chair for long periods is known to cause back pain and other problems. La-Z-Boy recliners, on the other hand, provide adaptable seating positions that alleviate pain and discomfort while encouraging a healthier lifestyle. Here are 4 major benefits of recliner chairs.
- Comfort: Put your feet up and recline in a position that offers maximum relaxation. With a recliner, you don't need to constantly shift or adjust cushions every few minutes. Simply sit back and enjoy.
- Relieve pressure: Take the pressure off your joints and sore muscles at the touch of a button. Why fight gravity when it can work with you for ultimate relaxation 24/7.
- Better mobility: It is natural to feel a bit stiff and tight after remaining in one position for an extended period of time. Treat your joints to a variety of comfy positions on a recliner and appreciate better mobility.
- Independence: Older and less mobile Australians treasure their independence. Consider an electric recliner lift chair that helps you get up and about for enjoying your favourite activities.
The perfect recliner
Are you tall, short, slim or large-framed? There is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to recliners; that's why La-Z-Boy provides loads of lounge chair options for all types of people. Explore our lounging furniture online, or visit your local La-Z-Boy retail showroom to ensure you purchase the perfect recliner that aligns with your back, neck and legs. You can even soothe and manage aches and pains with a recliner lift chair or massage chair in cowhide leather or premium fabric upholstery for classic or contemporary appeal.
