Choosing a Recliner for Your Nursery: The Benefits of Comfort

Home Comfort Guides

When selecting a recliner for a nursery room, it's essential to prioritize comfort and functionality. The nursery is a space where both you and your baby will spend a significant amount of time, so choosing the right recliner is crucial for creating a comfortable and nurturing environment. 

Beyond its traditional role in living rooms, a recliner proves to be an invaluable asset in a nursery, offering unparalleled comfort and versatility. One of the primary benefits lies in the comfort it provides during those late-night feedings or soothing sessions. The ergonomic design ensures proper support for those long sleepless nights and helps to reduce strains.

The versatility of recliners makes them suitable for nurseries with a variety of decor styles and themes. For nurseries with a modern aesthetic, sleek and streamlined recliners with clean lines and neutral colors can effortlessly complement the contemporary decor while still providing the necessary comfort. In contrast, for nurseries with a more traditional or classic vibe, plush recliners upholstered in soft fabrics such as linen or velvet can add a touch of elegance and warmth to the space. The wide range of recliner designs available ensures that there is an option to suit every nursery's unique style, whether it's rustic, minimalist, or eclectic.

Here are a few key factors to consider when searching for the perfect recliner:

Comfort and Support:

Look for a recliner that provides ample cushioning and support. Our signature Homebody recliner has padded armrests, a well-padded seat, and proper lumbar support. The goal is to create a cozy space for feeding, soothing, and spending quality time with your baby. Test the recliner in-store if possible, paying attention to how it feels when fully reclined and whether it suits your body's contours.

Easy-to-Clean Fabric:

Nursery furniture is prone to spills and stains, so opt for a recliner with easy-to-clean fabric. Stain-resistant or machine-washable materials are ideal choices, as they can withstand the inevitable messes that come with caring for a baby. Darker or patterned fabrics can also help camouflage minor stains. All Homebody recliners are made with performance fabrics that are spill-proof, easy to clean, and OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 Certified, meaning they are screened for harmful substances, and are PFAS and PFC-free with no “forever chemicals” or toxic flame retardants.

Space Considerations:

Measure the available space in the nursery before purchasing a recliner. Consider the chair's dimensions, especially if the nursery is smaller or has specific layout constraints. With only 2” of clearance needed, the Homebody recliner is a great option for any space. The 140-degree recline that Homebody offers is perfect for every feeding session or quick nap for mom while baby naps.  Wall-hugger or space-saving recliners are excellent choices for rooms with limited space, as they can be placed closer to the wall without sacrificing functionality.

Safety Features:

Safety is paramount, especially in a room designed for a newborn or young child. Ensure that the recliner has a secure locking mechanism when in the upright position. This prevents accidental reclining and adds an extra layer of safety, particularly if there are curious toddlers in the house. 

Grow with your Piece:

For growing families, you may want to consider a modular option that can adapt to your ever changing needs. A single recliner may be the choice for a newborn but when it is no longer needed, do you just get rid of it? Homebody’s recliners are fully modular, meaning you can add on to your single recliner and turn your nursery piece into a couch or sectional for another space!

Durable Construction:

Invest in a recliner with a sturdy and durable construction. Look for high-quality materials, such as hardwood frames and reinforced joints, to ensure the chair withstands the test of time. Homebody’s recliner is built with strong FSC-certified wood frames and 5 layers of cushioning in every seat to ensure lifelong enjoyment. A well-built recliner not only provides comfort but also ensures longevity, making it a worthwhile investment for your nursery.

In conclusion, finding the right recliner for a nursery involves a careful balance of comfort, practicality, and style. By considering factors such as comfort and support, easy maintenance, motion features, space considerations, safety features, and durable construction, you can choose a recliner that enhances the functionality and aesthetics of your nursery while creating a cozy haven for bonding with your baby.
