Purchasing a Lazyboy recliner may not be as easy as it seems. Majority of Americans can readily recognize a Lazy boy recliner by merely glancing at it but upon closer inspection, these recliners may have serious defects that could ruin a comfortable seating experience.
To make sure that you donâ€™t regret buying the recliner in the first place, here are some helpful tips to follow:
1. Location of the recliner
Before embarking on a quest to buy the lazyboy recliner, take some time to measure the area where you plan to put the recliner. You have to take into account the actual space needed when the lazyboy recliner is on full recline otherwise it may end up hitting other pieces of furniture or worse, not being able to recline to its full length.
2. Have kids? Go for stronger, stain resistant materials
If you live with children, chances are that stains and other forms of dirt will find its way on to the recliner. One should carefully select materials that can resist stains and are easy to clean if in case fluids like alcohol or fruit punch gets spilled on it. Retailers may offer to have the recliner treated with some sort of stain repellant and it usually comes with a warranty. If the stain repellant does not work, you should be able to request for a replacement or have it upholstered.
3. Avoid pushy salesmen
Do not let yourself be convinced into buying a lazyboy recliner just because the salesperson tells you so or promises you a great deal on the item. Chances are they are working for a commission on the sale and are not concerned on your concerns about the recliner. You should realize that in the end, it is the buyer that has to live with the recliner, not them.
4. Is it pet safe?
Most pets have the knack for climbing onto any new piece of furniture and making it part of their property. Cats and dogs readily use the recliner when not in use by other family members and as such, can lead to scratches, holes, and tears in the fabric. If you have pets that love to claw or gnaw things, you may want to get a stronger material for your recliner or find ways to keep the pets away from your $1000.00 investment.
5. Understand the warranty
Many people take for granted the terms and fine print of the warranty. In most cases there are some warranties that may cover the labor but not the cost of new parts. Some may even charge you extra for the shipping and delivery. Take time to understand what the warranty covers and what it does not. The warranty is meant for your protection.
In the end, the decision of buying a lazyboy recliner should always be based on what your needs are. Donâ€™t rush. Compare prices and warranties to get the best deal.
