Small/Petite Lift Chairs vs. Standard Lift Chairs

Although it’s called the Perfect Sleep Chair, you can do a lot more in this chair than just sleep. It’s ideal for watching TV, reading a book, or simply relaxing at the end of a long day. Many people who have purchased a Perfect Sleep Chair in the past describe it like lying on a cloud. People who have struggled to get a good night’s sleep for years are finally getting the rest they need with this incredible luxury recliner.

The Perfect Sleep Chair is ideal for those with mobility issues because it helps transfer them from a reclining to a standing position with just the touch of a button. Whether you have a permanent disability, or you need a bit of a boost while recovering from surgery, you will surely appreciate this feature.

We have designed the Perfect Sleep Chair with both mobility and comfort in mind. While not all customers use the mobility features, everyone can appreciate the softness and comfort of our small lift chairs. Even if you have no trouble getting in or out of a chair, it’s reassuring to know that you can have mobility help available as you age.

Our competitors sometimes use an assembly line to create mobility chairs, as well as low-quality materials that don’t offer the durability you would expect for such an investment. You never have to worry about these issues when you buy from us. At the Perfect Sleep Chair, we create each mobility chair by hand using only high-quality hardwoods and upholstery. We truly mean it when we say that our chairs are built to last. You can enjoy your chair knowing that we offer a lifetime guarantee on the frame itself and a three-year guarantee on all electric parts.

Best of all, we deliver your customized chair to your home ourselves and set it up for you. We can even haul your old chair away! Some of the features that all of our chairs share include:

  • Zero gravity position, which means that you can recline all the way back with your feet at a higher point than your head
  • The ability to go from seated to full standing by pushing a mobility button in approximately 50 seconds
  • Side pockets to hold remotes, magazines, or whatever you wish to store
  • The fabric is resistant to staining
  • Overstuffed back and headrest
  • Soft high-density foam for ideal sleeping conditions
  • Heat and massage features

After ordering this customized lift chair and having us set it up in your home, you may just wonder how you ever lived without it.

Is a Standard or Petite Lift Chair Right for You?

You’re convinced of the benefits of the Perfect Sleep Chair, but you can’t decide whether you should order the standard size or a petite lift chair. This decision mainly depends on your height and weight. It’s important to consider the height, size, and width of small lift chairs before deciding on the one you want. We have created our petite lift chair for people who are approximately 5’2” in height. People of smaller stature often find that the standard Perfect Sleep Chair is too deep for them to sit in comfortably. The petite lift chair also has a weight restriction of 250 pounds.

When ordering the petite chair, we offer you a wide range of colors and fabrics, so you get just the chair you want. The padding of the back of the chair rest makes you feel embraced in a tight hug and provides the ultimate in comfort. You can extend the leg rest to your comfort level as well.

What to Expect from Our Regular-Sized Lift Chair

We recommend going with the regular lift chair if you’re a taller or heavier person. It can accommodate up to 375 pounds and is long enough for someone who is over six feet tall. The width of the chair is 38 inches, and each armrest is 20 inches long. You will enjoy better posture, improved alignment of your spine, and reduced back pain all while getting a better night’s sleep. If you’re a larger person, you know how difficult it can be to achieve these things sleeping on a typical bed. You need something built just for you.

Other Considerations When Selecting a Regular or Petite Lift Chair

Your height and weight are one of the primary concerns when deciding which size of lift chair is right for you. However, you also need to consider the size of your living space. Those who have a small living space will likely need to push their Perfect Sleep chair against the wall. This can cause you to repeatedly strike the wall if it opens from the back when you slide the chair out. The best way to work around this is to specify that you would like a regular or petite lift chair with a sliding mechanism that allows it to open from the front when you provide us with your order specifications.

We also recommend that you spend some time thinking about the color and type of fabric that you want since you will most likely have this chair for the rest of your life. Leather is an attractive option; however, it may not be practical if you live in a very hot climate or you tend to sweat a lot. Micro-suede is an alternative to leather that’s more breathable, but it also tends to be slightly less durable.

There’s no right or wrong when it comes to making a list of your product specifications. The only thing that matters is your comfort and satisfaction. Please contact us if you need additional assistance choosing your size or deciding on other features.
