What to Consider When Buying Living Room Chairs:
Space: This may be the single most important factor for a lot of apartment dwellers or homeowners who don't have much room to work with. Futons are great for studios and one-bedrooms, while those who have too much space to fill may want to look for a sprawling sectional and matching accent chairs to fill up unused space.
Materials: Add some sophistication to your space with real or imitation leather living room seating or keep things simple with soft fabrics. Parents may want to find something that's easy to clean in a dark color in case the kids get carried away with their next art project, while pet owners will want to be conscious of materials that kitty or Fido may scratch or leave loose fur on.
Storage: If you're the type of person who can't stand clutter, try looking for living room seating that includes built-in storage. Many recliners and sofas will have hidden storage compartments beneath the armrests that are ideal for hiding away remotes, magazines and newspapers.
Extra amenities: While you're upgrading your living room seating options, why not go big with a chair that features heating and massage options. Chairs that include these luxurious amenities will usually have an attached remote for controlling the temperature and intensity, which means you won't have to get up to change the settings.
