Selecting the best massage chair for your living room can be a really tough choice. Trying to find something that fits in with the décor and is the right size for all those who will be using it can be a complicated endeavour. Above everything else, just finding a chair or recliner that is comfortable and easy to maintain can take hours of consideration and in-store testing. So, if you are on the market for the best massage chair for your home, make sure you check out the following guide to help you through the process.
Choose a size
Before you start looking at styles or anything else, you need to know what size you’ll be aiming for. How much physical space have you left available in your living room? If your massage chair has a reclining option, then make sure you have left adequate room space to accommodate this function. If the chair is a present for a young child, then it obviously doesn’t have to be massive in size.
Seek comfort over style
At the end of the day, do you want something that is comfortable or something that is stylish? There’s nothing saying you can’t necessarily have both, however, if it is a choice between comfort and style, you’ll definitely want the former. The best massage chair can be quite expensive, so you want something that is going to be the most valuable in the long run. You want a chair that is going to get plenty of use and become a family-favourite. A good massage is great for your mental health and boosting workplace productivity, so it could be a nifty addition to the office!
Try and fit it into the décor (if possible)
At the end of the day, comfort and utility should be the primary endeavour, however, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be looking for styles that will fit quite nicely with your current interior design and décor. The great thing about the market is that there are so many different styles and varieties available, so much so that it is unlikely that you won’t find something that will fit in well with your current style.
Have a set budget
No matter how good a massage chair may be, you don’t want to blow 2 months wages on it. This is why it is really important to have a maximum price in mind before heading to the store. There is no point looking at some of the more opulent and expensive options, because you might end up paying for something you really can’t afford. A lot of customers are impulse buyers, so the best way of preventing an impulsive decision is to avoid the catalyst. As soon as you walk into a furniture retailer, ask one of the sales reps for assistance and make sure they are aware of your price range. On the other hand, if you’re shopping online, use search filters to narrow down your search results. Easy!
When in doubt, go classic
If you are unsure about what type of style you want for your massage chair, go for a more classic model. This is because a classic style is generally the most adaptable and can generally fit in most interior spaces. Furthermore, the classic style breathes a certain level of class, traditionalism and sophistication that more modern, contemporary styles can’t really replicate.
Likewise, the more classic styles often have more durability, since they are often made from leather. Leather is quite easy to clean and maintain, particularly because spills don’t soak into the material is quickly. All you have to do is wipe down your leather massage chair every few weeks with a damp cloth. There are special cleaners available, however, a damp cloth will generally suffice.
