When you want to combine comfort, functionality, and elegance in a room purely for entertainment purposes, then the home theatre recline seat or seating system is your answer.
A home theatre recliner features many additional characteristics that are similar to that of a movie theatre, to give you that theatre experience in the comfort of your own home.
Choosing the Best Home Theatre Recliner
Now that you have finally made the choice to enhance your home with better viewing and relaxation experience, with either the addition of one or more theatre recliner seats, here are a few dynamics to consider;
The upholstery of your home theatre recliner is important, you are going to be using this seat frequently, as well as eating and drinking on it, so spills are a given.
Choose a fabric that iseasy to clean and maintain, breathable and that is stain resistant. Likewise, I would strongly recommend a good PU leather, which you only need to wipe clean with a damp cloth, although this option might be a bit cold in winter time.
Good comfortable padding and support is a must, you are going to be spending many hours in this chair, so you want something comfortable and that will not cause a backache from lack of support. Similarly, a padded footrest and armrest is a must for any home theatre recliner.
Recline and Footrest
Two most important aspects of functionality I would say is the recline function and a retractable footrest. Choose something that can recline to a few positions and a footrest that is adjustable.
Manual or Power
Most theatre recliners are power operated as they have specific features that require power, such as a USB charger port, massaging and heating functions. However a manually operated recliner can be just as effective, and much more mobile and budget friendly.
Home Theatre Features
Imagine you are in a movie theatre, you have a cold drink in your cup holder, popcorn in hand, and you are leaning back in a comfortable seat, with the best view in the house. Now, for your home theatre you want a similar experience and so much more.
Look for features such as an armrest tray, storage in the armrest or sides, cup holders, iPad, phone or USB docking ports, LED lighting. Mostly I would recommend a cup holder for a basic start as an additional feature.
Budget and Space
Lastly, we look at your limiting factors. The space you have available, taking into consideration the size of the recliner when in full recline with the footrest out. And the much dreaded budget part!
These two options should be your first choice affecting factors, unfortunately!
