What is the best riser recliner chair? These are the best lift chairs in the UK
Everyone who is looking for a riser recliner chair is looking for something different. There are lift chairs with single motors, dual motors, massage. Chairs with button back, T-back and waterfall back. That is even before you begin to look at the range of fabrics, comfort and user weight limits. All of the above make it very difficult to write this article of riser recliner chair reviews, but I am going to attempt to put together our own personal favourite list of 5 best riser recliner chairs. We took in to account user feedback, functionality, design and reliability when putting together this list of the best rise and recline chairs.
I have tried to include a recliner chair on this list that will suit everyone, the elderly, disabled, large person and small person.
5: The Canterbury
You will generally find that when looking for the best riser recliner chair that includes massage, you will be looking the best part of £1,000. The Canterbury lift chair offers users the chance to pay less and get the benefit of having a dual motor chair, in leather no less. This is probably the best value recliner chair here, well worthy of a place on this list.
With a long list of great reviews, the Canterbury black leather recliner chair is well worth a look if you on the search for a quality, relatively cheap recliner chair.

4: The LC101
The LC101 is a best selling riser recliner for good reason. For the money, you will struggle to find a better chair. This single motor chair has a reclining motion that will lay almost flat to a sleeping position. The manufacturers have designed this chair for people who will be spending a lot of time in it.

3: The Evesham
I think of the Evesham as a kind of all rounder. It does more or less everything well. This dual motor riser recliner has a quiet lifting motion and beautiful fabric, plus it is great value for the price you will pay.
The Evesham lift chair is a dual motor recliner, meaning that the footrest and backrest can be operated independently. This lift chair has an easy to operate handset.

2: The Hainworth
It was a close call. I was really close to calling the Hainworth number 1. When you think about what you need in a chair, I think of 3 things; comfort, function and price. The Hainworth ticks all three boxes. With dual motor function, massage and heat included, plus the chair is made of leather, it was difficult to come up with a better chair than this.
When I thought about putting together a page about riser recliner chair reviews, I already knew that the Hainworth would be on the list.
The massage and heat features are what makes this lift chair stand out.

1: The Oldbury
The Oldbury is like a hidden gem. It is not available in most mobility outlets and can be found more or less exclusively on Amazon. A friend recently purchased this chair for a parent and have since commented that it has made such a difference that they would have gladly paid double what was paid. The Oldbury is especially good for elderly people or those with memory problems or issues such as arthritis, thanks to it’s easy to operate remote control.
The attractive fabric adds to quality of this chair. It has a silent lift and recline motor that has proven to be very reliable and is also capable of lifting upto 23st. The word budget sometimes bring negative feeling in terms of quality, that is not the case here, this is quality at a budget price.
We fully recommend the Oldbury as the best riser recliner chair and best in class. The Oldbury is a highly recommended mobility aid.
