The size of your room
Filter your search by trying to think of the style you want that can match your room. Perhaps you want a modern recliner or a traditional one? Check out the range before buying any one.
Space and style
These days, you can get a recliner that's space-saving too, so have an idea of the space you would allot for a recliner and where in your home you're going to put it. Also, plan whether you're going to install it near the window, or wall. Measure the space before you shop for a recliner so that you buy the right one.
Scour the market for a recliner that fits your budget. Put your needs for a recliner into perspective before you decide on one and limit your spending based on that. After all, if you look around, you'll find that recliners cost anything between $99 and $2,000, so get real on your affordability.
Also, look online for recliners as you can read reviews of recliners and find out who makes the best leather recliners. Good salespeople can also advise you according to your budget.
Who will use it the most
If you're going to be using the recliner most, you need to try it out before buying it. After all, you need to check for comfort, whether your feet stay in it or out, etc. The comfort a recliner offers is proportionate to your height and weight, so if you have short legs, you won't touch the floor, making the recliner difficult to use and very uncomfortable
