Re: What to look for when buying a recliner?

First of all, it's good to look out for it's constructions. It should be easy to operate. Also, the gap between the seat and leg rest should be 5 inches or less. Make sure your feet can touch the floor while in the sitting position and your head comfortably fits the headrest.
Finally, measurements of your room or space matters a lot. Measure the recliner while fully reclined.
