Now that recliners come in more versatile designs, homeowners can choose to deck out their living rooms both with comfort and style. If you’re looking at getting one or two of these for your home, you can start off by choosing between two styles: one with a built-in footrest and one with a separate ottoman.
Recliner chairs that come with a separate ottoman are best used as design accents, alongside other living room furniture, given their unique look that sets it apart from plush sofas and armchairs. While you can choose to select one that matches the other sofas or loveseats, choosing a recliner that mildly contrasts with the other furniture can serve to turn the piece into the room’s focal point. For example, if your sofa set is all white, choose a recliner and ottoman done in a bright splash of color to make it stand out and draw guests’ eyes towards the space.
