Between bus benches, car seats, and office desks, we spend a lot of time sitting, but surprisingly little time feeling comfortable. That’s because so many chairs exist solely to serve a function — a place to wait, work, or eat. And, since function comes first, these chairs are often neither aesthetically appealing nor comfortable. That makes it easy to forget the sheer pleasure of just sitting down and kicking your feet up.
Whether you’re reading a book or watching a movie, a comfortable chair can ease the stress from a busy day. The best recliners for your home are the ones that do it all — reclining, massaging, and heating. That way, you can make every day feel like a spa day. Read on for our picks of 3 affordable massaging recliners from Amazon.
1. Esright Massage Recliner Chair
The Esright Massage Recliner comes with a variety of features including reclining, swiveling, heating, and massaging. Plus, it comes with two cupholders and side pouches for magazines, books, and remotes, meaning once you’re settled in, you won’t have to worry about getting up to get a drink or turn the TV on.
Pros: Users commented positively on how comfortable it was and how easy it was to assemble.
Cons: Some reviewers found that it required a lot of force to push the footrest down.
2. U-MAX Recliner Power Lift Chair
For smaller spaces, the U-MAX recliner offers many features — heating, reclining, and massaging — plus the ability to be kept near a wall. The wall-hugger design has a power lift feature that tilts away from the wall, allowing it to recline without needing to be kept in the middle of a room.
Pros: The massage feature can be localized to particular areas, and users found it easy to assemble.
Cons: Some reviewers commented that it wasn’t as comfortable for taller people.
3. Best Choice Products Faux Leather Massage Recliner
The Best Choice recliner has a separate footrest which can be plugged in and turned on for a leg massage, but the footrest can be moved out of the way when not in use. The recliner also features heating and massaging, but has a more sleek design than the other chairs.
Pros: Reviewers found it a comfortable and affordable option for people of multiple heights.
Cons: Some users complained about the smell of the synthetic materials, and that the massage feature wasn’t as thorough as they had hoped.
