What to Consider When Looking for a Lift Chair

Maybe you’ve decided to make the smart decision to invest in a lift chair but aren’t sure where to start. The first step is to figure out what your priorities are and decide which features are most important to you. Below are some key considerations to think about before making your decision. 

Size of Room 

One of the most important factors to consider is the size of the space you’re working with. If you have a large living room with plenty of space, you might enjoy a larger chair. If you have a smaller space like a bedroom, you’ll want to check out the smaller, space-saving chairs so it fits well in your home.  

Your Preference in Fabric 

There are a couple things to consider when it comes to picking your fabric. First, think about what fabric you prefer style-wise and what would work best in your house. You could go for a luxurious leather style, a soft and comfortable fabric, something with a pattern or other options. Some fabric options include: 

  • Durasoft 
  • Crypton Aira® 
  • Lexis Sta-Kleen® 
  • Ultraleather™ 

What Color You Want 

You don’t want to get a piece of furniture that doesn’t match the rest of your house, so picking the right color is key. Once you’ve decided what fabric you want, look at what colors the fabric you chose comes in. If you want something more subtle, there are plenty of neutral colors available. Some fabrics also come in burgundy, indigo and more if you’re looking for a pop of color in the room. 

Your Other Furniture 

Going along with the fabric and color, be sure to look at the other furniture in your living room and see what style of lift chair goes best with what you already have. For example, if you have a brown leather couch you can find a lift chair that has a similar style, so the room is cohesive throughout. 

Features and Advancements 

Technology has made lift chairs more advanced than ever with extra features like heated seats, massage options, speed variations, USB charging ports and more. With each chair comes unique features, so start by comparing what each chair has to offer and decide which options are most important to you.
