A reclining sofa looks and feels comfortable and is a great way to fully relax and enjoy your evening. Spread out or settle on one end, with the option to recline back, after a tiring day, this can feel like pure bliss. Many models feature lumbar support, and all should have readily accessible controls for reclining. Grab a comfy blanket and watch television or read a book, and with the pull of a lever, you go from a seated upright position to a relaxed reclined chair position that is easy on the lower lumbar region of your back.
Before qualifying for inclusion in our recommendations, each reclining sofa must survive a range of tests, examining various factors, including:
- Comfort – whether reclined or upright, this should be paramount, with neither losing out to each other
- Quality – the mechanism should work smoothly and efficiently, with each individual component displaying an incomparable quality
- Value for money – weighing up price vs quality
- Fire retardancy – each reclining sofa should comply with fire safety regulations
- Fabric – the fabric should be durable and hardwearing, yet retaining the greatest level of comfort
