Recliner chairs with built-in footrests look like standard armchairs except with the added comfort you can enjoy while you watch a good movie. As they look like your everyday armchair, they’ll easily fit into the rest of your living room set if you want to keep the furniture coordinated.
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.
