Jump straight to the…

Manual Rise and Recline Chair Cost

Manual rise and recline chairs tend to cost less as they aren’t made with electrical motors that move the chair and allow for all the functions. Instead, using a simple lever, you can lay back and relax in these manual riser recliners.

A manual recline chair costs less, here's a manual recline chair that's operated by a lever on the side of the chair.

Manual recliners tend to cost less money because they don’t contain electrical motors.

To find a quality manual rise and recline armchair will cost you anywhere from £500/£600 upwards. There is a wide range of customisation options available, and you can get manual recliners in different fabrics and sizes to suit your comfort needs as well as decor preferences.

Manual rise and recline armchairs are ideal if you’re looking for a straightforward riser recliner chair and still have the mobility and strength required for manual operation. This is usually done via a lever on the side of the chair that will start the reclining process and lift up the footrest.

An electric riser recliner is the way to go if you need a little more help or would just like the convenience of a motor operated reclining function. This electric reclining movement is controlled through a remote usually kept on the side of the chair and attached via a coiled wire.

Electric Rise Recliner Prices

Electric riser recliner chairs can vary much more in price. This, in short, is because there is a lot more going on a lot more inside these chairs.

The motors that allow for the armchair to offer a rise and recline & tilt-in-space functions as well as move the footplate will add expense, especially if you opt for a chair with dual motor single or dual motor.

Dual motor electric rise and recline chairs allow you to operate the backrest and footplate independently of one another. For more information, take a look at our post on single and dual motor riser recliners.

This mode of operation will give the seated person more control over the angles they are sitting at, this dual motor style of rise and recline chair also adds more expense to the overall cost as a second motor is being used.

Like with manual riser recliners, the cost of electric rise and recline chairs will also vary depending on how customised you want your chair to be and the fabrics you use to make the chair yours.

Lower end electric rise and recline chairs cost anywhere from £550 upwards. These chairs have standard rise and recline functions and come in stock sizes (or only one size in some cases) and have fewer fabric options.

Electric rise and recline chairs designed with higher quality fabrics will cost more, but they will come with the benefits of individual dual motor operation and a wider range of fabric customisation options.

More bespoke electric riser recliner chairs cost anywhere between £900 and £1200. These will offer more size options (i.e., small, medium, large) and more fabrics choices.

A stock rise and recline chair with good adjustability is the ideal starting point for anyone looking for a chair because of the design flexibility, size customisation and motor options. You can choose what is best suited to you.
