Reclining furniture

I'm wondering how other people use their reclining furniture. In our family room, we have a couch, loveseat, and chair, which all recline. I almost never sit on these pieces of furniture without kicking up the footrest. Does anybody else do this?

We have a rocker recliner. I rock, but donít recline. Partly I am afraid one of the cats will crawl under it unbeknownst to me and I might trap them under it and possibly hurt them.

We have two recliners in our family room. One of them is mine, mine, mine. My computer sits beside it, and I almost always immediately kick my feet up when I sit down, and leave it that way until I need to get up for something.

We are in the market for new furniture. It will be reclining! Our current furniture doesn't recline, but we always have our feet up on the couch/loveseat.

What brand do you have? I've just started looking.

We just traded our reclining couch and loveseat for a new loveseat and chair. All recline. Our old loveseat also rocked, but we do have a rocking chair, so.. When I sat on the couch, I often had the recliner out, but sat sideways on the couch for some odd reason.

Funny, because I usually leave the recliner out when I get up, too!

our furniture is Lane. We've had it, I think, for around 15 years. It has held up well, and it is still comfortable!

Our couch has recliners on both ends. They are electric and can be adjusted to infinite settings. I'm always reclined to some degree, DH hardly ever reclines.

We have a reclining couch. We just moved into the house. It is the only furniture we have in the living room. Love it!

We have to reclining chairs. dH’s is quite comfy. I have the exact same chair and I hate it. It’s my first purchase when Covid is done....to go to a furniture store and buy a non-reclining big comfy chair.

I love reclining chairs. We have a reclining loveseat and a reclining chair in our family room. While I might sit up if we have company, I always recline to read or watch tv.

I always like to put my feet up in the evening. My last few years of teaching I would even come home and sit down and put my feet up for a few minutes before starting dinner etc.

In the living room I have ottomans. It's just not as comfortable!

I gave away a very nice recliner to the National Kidney Foundation because of the cats. And I know exactly which one would be the first to settle down under it.

I almost wish I had one now as I'm recovering from surgery. I haven't used my bed since last Saturday and sometimes finding a comfortable position in a chair or on the couch can be tricky. So if you're considering getting one, and don't have cats there is a very practical reason, hopefully, you'll never need it for practical reasons!

I have used recliners for several surgery recoveries. They are great for respiratory illnesses too.

We bought LazyBoy reclining furniture. It is over 25 years old. My DD now has it and the fabric is still in great shape. It is so comfortable. Yes we recline.

We had one but it took up so much room I gave it to my brother in law. He loves it! We bought a beautiful grey couch and I had our loveseat recovered to compliment the couch. We also bought a green leather chair. And a lovely new rug. We love our family room!

a beautiful couch that is basically two huge recliners and a separate long lounge with a reclining back. Two people can fit on one recliner section. It was practically new, but his new GF did not want it b/c his old GF had selected it (seriously). My gain!

We LOVE the recliners, but did find that adding a lumbar support pillow made them more comfy. When I hurt my ribs a couple of years ago in a fall, I actually had to sleep partially sitting up on the recliner for two months. The only real problem is that the furniture is too big for my living room. Someday, I may replace it, but it is still only about four or five years old and has lots of life left in it.

I don't have any reclining furniture. I had a reclining sofa for many years but I very rarely put the footrest up. When I replaced that sofa I didn't see any reason to get another sofa recliner. I have an ottoman for when I want to put my feet up.

I always kick up the recliner part! I'm short so my legs just kind of hang there so it is much more comfortable to it the legs up on it. we just got the recliner and so happy with them. we have a couch and love seat...everyone but the dog has a recliner section.

We love our reclining sofa and love seat! I'm terrible about not pushing the footrest down when I get up, though. I have no idea why. When I see it later, I put it down.

Do you have a coffee table? I'm afraid to have one since the footrest would knock into it if it's too close, and it seems useless if it's too far away. I always wondered what others did.

we don't have a coffee table. Part of the reason was because of the recliner always hitting the coffee table. It does get a bit inconvenient when we want to put down a drink or a snack!
