Designing Your Own Home Theater

Designing Your Own Home Theater

The price of new electronics has fallen in recent years, and the smart TV revolution has made accessing all the movies and shows you could ever hope to see easier than ever before. In other words, the perfect time to create your own home theater is now!

 

 

In this article, we will walk you through the three most important purchases you will need to set up a home theater.

 

The Seating. You can't have a home theater without home theater seating! Head over to Recliners.LA online or in person today to check out our wide selection of theater furniture seating. Featuring options from trusted brands such as Palliser and Fjords, RLA is sure to have a piece that meets both your style and your budget.

 

The Television. Even more crucial to a home theater than theater seating is the big screen -- and this part is the shopping process that can be overwhelming because there are lots of TV options in the market. To generalize broadly, however: plasma TV’s offer the widest range of viewing angles, which is why they are the most popular home theater television choice. LED displays, on the other hand, offer less viewing range, but more resistance to glare. And, for those with the budget, OLED screens are said to offer the best of both worlds.

 

The Mount. Wall mounts are by far the most popular method of displaying flat screen TVs nowadays. Alternatively, however, some people still prefer to place their TV on a stand rather than mounting it. This is especially practical for curved televisions, which are increasingly popular. Regardless of what kind of mount or stand you are looking for, you can be sure to find it from BDI furniture at Recliners.LA

Are you Replacing Your Furniture Too Often?

Are you Replacing Your Furniture Too Often?

Shopping for furniture can be an exciting process. It’s an opportunity to envision a new future for your home -- and an opportunity to turn your stylistic dreams into a stunning reality. Who doesn't love curling up and relaxing on a brand new sofa, recliner, love seat, or home theatre setup? 

 

All the same, if you find yourself shopping for a new furniture on a regular basis, the fun and excitement you normally associate with furniture shopping can quickly turn to dread. Spending hours upon hours perusing various stores looking for reasonable prices -- and spending hundreds upon hundreds of dollars paying for the piece you really want -- can get old pretty quickly! If this sounds like you, then it may be time to recognize the fact that your furniture simply isn't lasting as long as it should be.  

 

In our humble opinion, furniture that does not last for years is simply not worth the price, no matter how impressively low that price may be. High-quality furniture can be surprisingly affordable, which is why you owe it to yourself to invest in fantastic furniture options that give you your money's worth while providing a truly comfortable and relaxing experience. That is one of the many reasons why we are so so proud of what we do here at Recliners.LA!  

 

If you are looking for cheap prices on furniture that is truly built to last, then we suggest checking out popular RLA furniture vendor partners such as La-Z-Boy, Palliser and Ultra Comfort.  

 

Are you feeling ready to upgrade to a slightly higher level of quality at a price that is still reasonable? Higher end options from Recliners.LA include Stressless by Ekornes furniture, Lafer, Fjords furniture, and Himolla.

5  Simple Ways To Create A New Look For Your Home This Fall

5  Simple Ways To Create A New Look For Your Home This Fall

The dog days of summer are in full swing, but believe it or not autumn is just around the corner. Within just a few short weeks, school sessions will be starting again, and fall will be in the air. Cooler weather, longer nights, and brilliant foliage are just a few of the beautiful tell-tale signs that the seasons are finally changing. And for those of us to take home design seriously, these natural processes occurring outdoors are also a sign that it's time to make some changes indoors, as well. Adding a few autumn touches to your home is a fantastic way to enhancing the natural appeal of the fall season!  

 

Though the notion of reimagining your home style might sound rather intimidating, the truth is that there are many simple adaptations you can make without breaking the bank or expending excessive amounts of time and energy. Here are a few of our favorite tips for home design in the fall.  

 

  • Redecorate.Simply adding a few autumn-themed decorations -- from pine cones and adorably folksy knick knacks to a quilt display -- can produce a major change in the overall feel of your living room.  
  • Rearrange.Moving furniture away from the walls can create a cozier feel that works better for fall and winter. Adding a rug or two, or relocating rugs to more prominent places, is another effective way of achieving a similar effect. 
  • Repaint.With less than a day's worth of work, you can reinvigorate your room while adding a more seasonal color. 
  • Redesign the color scheme.Painting isn't the only way to redesign your color scheme. Adding decorations such as the ones mentioned earlier in this article can change the color setup dramatically, for example. 
  • Introduce new furniture.Even if you're not ready to invest in an entirely new set of furniture,adding an extra rocking recliner or ottoman can help create a cozier space that is better equipped to accommodate all the guests you will be receiving when the holiday season rolls around. Visit Recliners.LA online today to browse our extensive selection of furniture options!

RLA Price Guide

There is quite a bit to consider when shopping for new furniture -- as anyone passionate about creating a beautiful and comfortable home environment could tell you. Selecting color schemes, comparing styles, and envisioning room layouts are just a few of the most rewarding and (for some) enjoyable aspects of furniture buying. 

 

Among the many factors that influence customers’ decisions regarding furniture purchases, however, there is one consideration that oftentimes reigns supreme: pricing. Most of us set at least some sort of tentative budget before making important decisions for our homes. And, in many cases, if the price isn't right, nothing else matters.

How to Create a Floor Plan

How to Create a Floor Plan

Creating a detailed floor plan for your home can be one of the most useful and insightful tricks for interior design. And this is especially true for anyone who is considering purchasing furniture online. Careful planning is the best way to ensure that furniture you haven't seen in-person will fit in with your existing setup, after all. 

 

Here is a brief overview on how you can put together a functional floor plan for your home before you begin shopping for furniture: 

 

Measuring Your Space 

The first step in creating an accurate floor plan is to measure the dimensions of your room. Pay special attention to doorways and any irregular nooks or corners. Also, if you have large items that you don't plan on moving or don't see yourself putting elsewhere, you might as well factor them into the floor plan in order to give yourself a more accurate portrait of the space you're working with.  

 

Drawing it up 

Once you have the measurements for your room, it's time to draw up your floor plan. We recommend using graph paper and pencil for maximum accuracy and flexibility. Alternatively, if you prefer to take a more tech-based approach, then you may wish to check out MagicPlan, a free floor plan creation app available for both iPhone and Android OS phones.  

 

Envisioning the future. 

With your existing space and setup mapped out, finding the perfect furniture and decor for your space should be a breeze. Of course, there are still many factors left to consider, such as color schemes, style, design, and what type of furniture you plan on incorporating. However, the most basic question of whether furniture will fit in at all is answered -- and you have an accurate and insightful template that will help you weigh your options and envision the future of your home.

4 Quick Tips for Online Furniture Shopping

4 Quick Tips for Online Furniture Shopping

It’s no secret that furniture shopping can be quite a hassle. Running from store to store, dealing with pressure from pushy sales people, and trying to keep pricing information and other specifications organized is enough to frustrate anyone. (And the worst part is, since you are furniture shopping, you might not even have a comfy recliner to sink into once you get home from this whole stressful ordeal!)

 

 

The good news? Online furniture stores have made the whole process so much easier! Anyone with a decent internet connection and a computer or mobile device can now browse thousands of furniture options from an incredibly diverse array of manufacturers, all from the comfort of their own home. No more cross-town pilgrimages or store-locating fiascos -- shopping online means you can shop in your pajamas if you'd like.

 

In 2017, most of us have ordered a meal, bought a Christmas gift, and paid for a Netflix subscription online. All the same, making a larger purchase such as buying a sofa or recliner through the web can still be intimidating. How can you be sure you're getting a good deal on a piece that will really fit your style and your home?

 

Fortunately, there is a time-tested art to online furniture shopping. As long as you know what to look for, you shouldn’t have anything to worry about. So sit back, relax, and check out these four quick tips for online furniture shopping:

 

Get the specs. Any trustworthy furniture vendor will post the measurements of every item they're selling -- a fact you can use to verify online sellers while also making interior design plans that much easier.

Check out the pics. Online photo galleries are another must from internet vendors -- checking out a wide variety of furniture pics will help you make the right decision for your home’s unique style.

Find vendor info. In addition to learning about the online store that you are shopping from, you should also make it your business to learn about the furniture manufacturer.

Return policies and shipping details matter. When shopping online, the fine print is more important than ever, so don't forget to investigate the details.

The Ottoman Empire

The Ottoman Empire

 No, we're not talking about the epic kingdom that once spanned across parts of Europe, Asia, and Africa. We're talking about our epic collection of ottoman furniture here at Recliners.LA!  

 

For the curious, ottoman furniture does take its name from the former empire. This nifty style of furniture first became popular in the 1700's in Turkey, but the rest of the world was impressed, and ottomans soon became popular all around the globe. 

 

Today, ottomans remain popular in large part because of their versatility. Ottomans can be used interchangeably as chairs, tables, and footrests. And some ottomans even include extra features such as interior storage space or a wooden tabletop surface.  

 

If you are looking to make your living room more comfortable, or to add versatile furniture to your collection, or to accommodate more people with the same amount of space, then an ottoman might be the right furniture option for you. If you like the simple yet regal style that has been wowing people around the world for almost 300 years, then an ottoman might be right for you. And if you’re just not sure, then we encourage you to browse our ottoman selection and consider how the following pieces might fit into your home. 

 

The Double Ottoman Table Ottoman, from Stressless by Ekornes, is one of our personal favorites. On sale now for just $1,095, this is a steal from one of the most widely respected furniture companies in the world.  

 

If you’re a fan of matching ottomans, on the other hand, then perhaps the Consul Recliner and Ottoman, also from Stressless by Ekornes, is a good choice for you. This Recliner/Ottoman combo is available now for $1,695.  

 

To find more great sales on great ottomans, and to browse our entire RLA ottoman collection, head over to Recliners.LA online today.  

Find The Perfect Table For Your Living Room

 Find The Perfect Table For Your Living Room

A great table is oftentimes one of the last details people consider when putting together a living room furniture set. If you're still searching for this final puzzle piece to the living room of your dreams, then this overview of Recliners.LA table options is for you. Read on to learn more about the options we offer and the deals that you can find online right now.  

 

 

Computer Stands and Swing Tables. If you're still not sold on the idea of using a living room table at all, then you may wish to consider an attachable stand rather than a full sized table. These nifty and space-efficient options give you all the functional practicality of a table without any of the commitment that a more traditional option would entail. This swing table accessory offered by Stressless, Ekornes is a great option for any proud owner of an Ekornes chair, and makes snacking, computing, or enjoying a hot cocoa easy and comfy. The Stressless Computer Table Accessory is a similar option also offered by Ekornes that is designed more explicitly for computing, and if you work from home then there is no better way to make work truly relaxing! 

 

Coffee tables. If you prefer a homier, more traditional look (and all the space that it offers), then you'll be glad to hear that Recliners.LA offers a number of coffee tables as well. One of our personal favorites is the Stream 1501 from BDI USA: we could go on and on about how great BDI furniture is, by why not click on the link and check out their selection for yourself? 

 

End pieces. End tables are the perfect middle ground between large coffee tables and mini-sized stands: the Ellipse Occasional Table from Ekornes and the Bink Table from BDI are two of our most popular choices.

How to Adapt Your Home for Limited Mobility

How to Adapt Your Home for Limited Mobility 

If you or a loved one has experienced illness or injury that's led  to limited mobility, then it is undoubtedly a tumultuous time for you. You may be feeling confused, overwhelmed, or even frustrated -- and this is perfectly normal. Adapting to limited mobility, whether temporary or permanent, can be a huge challenge.  

 

One of the best ways to overcome these challenges is to adapt your house to be more practical and comfortable for someone with limited mobility. This will help you overcome the physical challenges associated with limited mobility; and, just as importantly, it will help you overcome the emotional challenges of this trying time. After all, when home feels like home, everything is a little bit more manageable. 

 

So, without further ado, here are a few simple tips on how you can make your home a safer and more functional place for someone with limited mobility.  

 

  • Identify trouble spots.Every home has places that are potentially challenging or dangerous for those with limited mobility. Examples may include: stairs, tight corners, doorways, slippery floors, showers, sinks, and outdoor areas. Think about which places are difficult to navigate for yourself or your loved one, and then think about how you might be able to make these spaces more manageable. In some cases, this could be as simple as adding a carpet or removing a door; in other cases, you may need to perform a more involved task such as installing a ramp. 

 

  • Think about the simple comforts.A complete overhaul of the home may not be possible or even desirable. Instead, focus on small but meaningful changes and comforts you can add to the home, taking the wants and needs of your loved one into consideration. Making access to things such as the thermostat, the telephone, and kitchen appliances can make a huge difference, for example. 

 

  • Furniture and lift chairs.Speaking of comfort (and we admit that we're biased here), you may wish to consider investing in alift chair from Recliners.LA. Designed with limited mobility in mind, these fantastic chairs from companies such as Ultra Comfort and La-Z-Boy furniture make sitting and standing easier for those who may otherwise have issues. Visit Recliners.LA online today to learn more about our lift chair selection.
