Are you ready for some football? The season is here to cheer for your favorite teams! You’ll want to make sure your home is ready for you and your guests. Every football fan wants to cheer on their team in comfort, and recliners fit the bill perfectly.

When you think of recliners, do you picture those big brown reclining chairs from the past? Not that there’s anything wrong with those brown recliners—but these days, there are many different styles, shapes, and sizes to choose from. So what makes a great recliner for enjoying this year’s exciting games? We’ll go over what features to look for, as well as our picks for the perfect game day chair. Let’s get started!

Recliner Features to Look For

Reclining seating has been popular for many years, and for good reasons. When they first came out in stores, consumers fell in love with their comfort and style.

Every sports fan has their own preference when it comes to seating options. For most people, comfort is a top priority—adjustable headrests are a popular and desirable feature. You can position the footrest and chair back at just the right positions for maximum comfort. The size and viewing angle are also important, especially when the chair is reclined.

If you’re looking for a durable recliner that offers stain and wear-and-tear protection, consider a leather reclining seat. Wide cushions offer maximum comfort for you and your game day guests.

Need to choose between a manual or a power recliner? While manual recliners operate as one unit, power reclining sofas and chairs have individual parts that can each be adjusted. This makes it easier to find individual comfort levels that suit you best. Ideal for people with disabilities and physical limitations, power recliners also offer more settings and positions than manual recliners. Recliners with power seating also require a battery pack or an electrical cord, so make sure there’s an outlet nearby.

Sometimes, certain power recliners are covered by insurance for medical reasons. (Be sure to check with your insurance company.)
