As you move into the new year after a busy festive period, simple home comforts and great TV are most people’s top priority. So, what’s the best armchair for watching your fave TV series? We share some of our top tips to help you get the most from your Netflix, Prime or Disney boxed set. We’ll also share some great comfort shows too – read on…
Get comfortable with the right TV setup
Whether you’re trying to reposition your old armchair, or you’ve invested into a brand-new chair, it’s important to make sure it’s setup correctly so you can get the best TV view. Unless you’re restricted by furniture within your living room, avoid having to crane your neck at awkward angles to see the TV screen. If you have a reclining chair, then allow enough room for the footrest to extend and the seat to go back. Think about the location of any side tables.
Choose features and functions to support your comfort
Once you have chosen the right spot for your armchair, the next thing to consider is the level of functions and features you need. If your old armchair is worn-out and no longer comfortable, then maybe it’s time to look for an upgrade. Recliner armchairs are a great option for comfy TV viewing, and power recliners often include extra exciting features too.
Our top-selling Rockingham recliner with heat and massage offers the ultimate level of relaxation, allowing you to soothe away any aches or pains. This recliner chair also has a rocking and swivel ability, along with a handy drinks holder and side pockets for your TV control. So, whether your fave old comfort series is a classic Star Trek, or a comedy show like Malcolm in the Middle, you can move with the action, or sit back and laugh in comfort.
Practical and comfortable TB viewing
When you’re looking for a comfy armchair to watch TV, consider the upholstery that suits your home life and interior décor style. If you have small children prone to spillages and sticky fingers, then a recliner with a soft-bonded leather cover is a practical solution. But if your children are nearly grown up or with families of their own, pick a cosy warm fabric.
Our popular Keston with a super-soft jumbo cord cover is ideal for snuggling up to re-watch the entire series of Friends (for the umpteenth time!). This reclining armchair also has smart yet practical faux leather sides. Available as a manual latch or electric model with button control, just choose your level of comfort and budget. You’ll lose hours in this armchair - and the best bit of all - you can even buy a matching reclining sofa for everyone’s comfort.
Relax with the right level of support
If you’re a late-night boxed set binger, then you’ll need to consider what’s underneath the surface of your armchair. Go for deep foam padding, especially across the seat, back and armrests. The Keston has a gorgeous pillow back, along with a deeply padded seat and armrests, providing you with full support for lengthy TV sessions. And the Rockingham also offers superb support with foam padding in all the right places for comfortable viewing.
Transform your living room to a cosy space
When you upgrade your armchair, you’ll also be upgrading your living room. So, consider the look you want to achieve, as well as your ability to view your fave TV series in comfort. After all, we all love to sit back, relax and enjoy the comfort of our favourite hit TV series after a long day at work. By adding a comfy recliner to your home, you will transform your living spaces, and create a truly cosy space to curl up and unwind during a wintry evening.
