A popular feature of a living room or rec room is a recliner chair, but if you are tall then you can have trouble finding one of these chairs that is a good fit for your long frame. Fortunately, you can find special made recliners for tall people that allow you to recline back and relax without your legs dangling off the end.
How To Shop For Recliners For Tall People
As you may already know, there are two main problems when it comes to using a recliner chair as a tall person – you need the leg part to actually be long enough for your legs and you need the back to be tall enough for your upper body so that your head is not hanging off the top of the chair when reclined back.Advertisement:
The easiest way to shop for recliners for tall men is to check out the dimensions, or measurements, for the back of the chair and the leg extension part of the chair. As you can imagine, it can be more than a little difficult to actually find these recliners in-stock at local furniture stores. As a result, they often have to be purchased online and delivered to your home.
The good thing about this is that you do not have to worry about getting the chair from the furniture store and into your living room. The bad thing about this is that you do not have any chance to sit in the chair and test out its comfort level before it ends up in your living room. Granted, you can’t be too choosy when it is this difficult to find a chair that you comfortably fit in. I know, because my cousin Chris is over 6-feet tall and has gone through this exact problem.
