Lift chairs are becoming more valuable to Australians as many baby boomers, the largest generation, begin to retire and settle down. They not only provide the support you need now but will help well into the future, which makes them a pragmatic choice no matter which option you choose. However, it is important to note that there are quite a few varieties that you can pick from, and knowing the benefits of each will help you make an informed choice. Here are three different types of lift chairs that you might want to consider investigating further to see if it fits your needs.
Recliner Lift Chairs
Recliner lift chairs are one of, if not the most, popular variants out there. They not only work like a normal, comfortable chair, but they have a full range of motion from the elevated lift position they are put in to help you enter and exit, back into a regular seated position, and then further back into a more comfortable, semi-prone position which you can sleep on. For those who enjoy a quick siesta in the middle of the day or like lying down while watching their movies or reading from their favourite book, recliner lift chairs are the clear choice.
Dual Seated Lift Chairs
For those who prefer company when they are seated, dual lift chairs are a great option. These resemble small sofas rather than a singular chair but work in exactly the same fashion as you are familiar with from other lift chairs. Often they come with a little space between the two seats where you will find cupholders and a storage area, but there are other models available with no gap. These chairs are perfect for couples who both are starting to spend more time at home and want to enjoy their retirement together.
Mobile Lift Chairs
For those who might not necessarily always want their lift chair in the same place, there are several different types of recliner lift chairs (and non-recliner lift chairs) that can be moved around. Some come with small wheels that you lock in place when you want to be stationary, and others are simply lighter and have better handles for portability. Whatever your needs may be, if you want a chair you can enjoy in any room of your house without too much effort, a mobile lift chair is something you might want to look at more.
