In this post

    Electric recliners are becoming popular in the modern world we live in today but what is an electric riser recliner and how do they work? Discover not only how recliner sofas work but if recliner sofas are good for your specific needs and requirements.

    How Does a Riser Recliner Sofa Work?

    A riser recliner sofa works in the same way as a riser recliner chair. You still get precisely the same comfort and mechanics but there is two part to the riser recliner sofa and they can move independently of one another. You are able to raise, lower and recline at the touch of a button. Here’s how electric recliner sofas work:

    Sitting In an Electric Riser Recliner Sofa

    • To sit in an electric riser recliner sofa, you should raise the chair to a comfortable height by pressing the appropriate button on your handset.
    • Once the recliner sofa has stopped, you should position yourself between the arms. You can do this by backing towards the seat and allow the back of your legs to touch the seat.
    • Once you have reached this position and you feel secure, you are ready to lower the chair. Use the buttons on your handset to start lowering the chair.
    • At this stage you should allow yourself to follow the recliner sofa down. You can do this by sitting on the seat during the downward movement until you are in a comfortable seated position.

    How To Recline in a Recliner Sofa

    • Your recliner sofa is infinitely variable for you to find the best position to relax in.
    • To recline the recliner sofa, use the button on the hand control and release it when you have reached your desired position.
    • You can, of course, also stop the recliner sofa in any position you desire by simply releasing your finger from the hand control buttons.

    Getting Out of A Recliner Sofa

    • When you wish to get out of the recliner sofa, push the rise button on your handset. The chair will first return to a seated position and can then gently lift you to a secure standing position.
    • Once you have reached a point where you feel confident enough to stand, release the button.

    What do I Need to Consider When Buying a Riser Recliner Sofa?

    With so many suppliers out there, it can seem a little daunting to choose the best riser recliner sofa. The good news is there are some simple things to consider which can help make it easier.

    Shopping For Choice

    First of all, your new riser recliner sofa needs to match your individual needs, so is there a wide range of sofa styles and designs, with an extensive selection of fabrics and leathers to choose from? Do they make their recliners sofas themselves – and in the UK?

    Value Your Time

    There are local and national retailers near the town high street, but they aren’t always the easiest to get to. As you know, the trend for shopping is increasingly moving away from expensively run shops and towards a more personal experience from reputable online retailers.

    You could opt for a home consultation where items are demonstrated in your own home by experienced product specialists.

    You’ve earned your right to relax in comfort, so enjoy sitting comfortably on your chosen recliner sofa.

    Special Features

    Choose the size to suit your space.

    With two- and three-seater riser recliner options available, you can select a sofa that slots seamlessly into your room.

    It’s what’s on the inside that counts.

    While two recliner sofas might be the same style and colour, it’s what’s underneath that makes all the difference.

    Are there any special features or accessories available, like a built-in massage system or a reading light?

    For a completely stress-free, relaxed experience, take out a Guardsman Protection Plan for your
    fabric or leather furniture to shield your furniture from those occasional mishaps, spills and stains.

    Tried and Tested

    Trust in quality too. As a general rule of thumb, look for well-established names with decades of experience, especially if they have good reviews from other happily satisfied customers.

    The best recommendations come from people who are looking for the same comfort and support that you are.

    What if a Recliner Sofa Stops Working?

    Recliner sofas don’t need to be serviced annually. It is advisable to choose a company that can arrange for one of its own, specialist engineers to visit if you experience any problems though.

    In the unlikely event that you have any problems with a Willowbrook riser recliner sofa, you can call our customer care line and speak to one of our experienced technical advisors who will be able to help you with any simple issues over the phone.

    If the problem is more serious, they will arrange for one of our in-house engineers to visit your home at a time and date suitable to you.
