Prices for Riser Recliner Chairs Recliner Chairs

The first question that people think about before deciding to purchase a riser recliner chair is how much it will cost. 

While you can get basic riser recliner chairs for as little as £150, the cheapest models are likely to be single-motor versions that don't let you control the back and footrest independently. 

Typical prices for dual-motor riser recliner chairs range from £750 right up to £5000 depending on the features they offer. 

The price you pay may also depend on the fabric you choose, as well as the specific supplier you opt for. 

Getting financial support to buy a riser recliner chair

If you need a riser recliner chair because of a medical condition or to help you live independently at home, you may be eligible to get one through your local authority.

Different local authorities have different rules around what they'll pay for, but your first step should be to contact your local council and book an assessment.

If you have a specific mobility problem and you need special equipment to live independently you may also qualify for VAT exemption. Visit the HMRC website for more information on VAT relief for disabled people.

Choosing the right chair, whatever the price

If your recliner isn’t right, not only will it be uncomfortable, but it could cause you long term physical problems. It’s important to remember that most chairs will feel comfortable when you first sit on them, but to be really sure about the comfort level you need to sit in one for about an hour. 

As that's not very practical in a shop or showroom, the only way you'll really be able to tell is once you're using it at home. It's wise to check that the retailer has a good returns policy, so that you can get a full refund should it prove unsuitable within a certain time limit, such as 28 days.
