Uplevel Dad’s Recliner to a Massage Chair

Dads and recliners go together like meat and potatoes or football and Sunday. Chances are your father has one, and that it’s his favorite seat in the house. Who doesn’t love kick back and unwind? But what if that chair was a massage chair that could also help dad relax? You just might be able to borrow the car more often or not worry about the dent you made in your fender.

Massage chairs come with a variety of options as well as price tags for all budgets, big and small. Which one do you think Dad would love?

Does Dad Snore? An Adjustable Bed Helps Everyone Sleep at Night

If you think adjustable beds are for only hospitals, think again. Chris Schollenberger, director of PureSleep at Art Van Furniture, says power base beds, also known as adjustable beds, offer lifestyle benefits. And they’re more versatile than you think.

“With a power base bed, you sleep better, live better and feel better,” says Chris. “And the health benefits are amazing.”

Power base beds can raise the bed up to 70 degrees at the head and 40 degrees at the foot. We sat down with Chris to learn about their great features, and here’s what he had to say:

What are some of the health benefits?

Adjustable beds help alleviate a lot of common health issues. Those who suffer from acid reflux can adjust the bed just 10 degrees to let gravity keep acid down at night. People with asthma or airway issues can adjust the head of the bed five to 10 degrees to help aid with breathing. If you or someone you love snores, power base beds can help. Some beds have an anti-snore button that will automatically adjust the bed to the best angle for breathing.

Those with chronic back pain can elevate the head and foot of the bed. Or if you have circulation issues, adjust the bed to keep your feet up. Some of the beds even have a massage feature, which promotes good circulation.

What about lifestyle benefits?

If you like to read, elevate your bed upright to 70% and enjoy a book in your quiet bedroom. You can also watch TV in bed sitting up. And if you bring work home, get away from the hustle and bustle of your home, and sit in your bed with your laptop.

Are adjustable beds expensive?

No. They’re very affordable. In fact; the prices are dropping as power bases become more popular and mainstream. The base model starts at $429, and virtually every mattress Art Van Furniture carries at its PureSleep locations is power-based compatible.

Will my bedroom look like a sick ward?

No. In past, these beds used to look like hospital beds. Now they look like furniture. Most bases include Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capabilities built in. Some models include a nightlight under the bed, which makes it easy to get up at night. And you can plug in and charge your phone from your bed.

The great thing about power base beds is that it’s there when you need it. When it’s flat, you can’t tell the difference between the power base bed and a regular foundation. But it’s convenient to have the option to use it whenever you want.

5 Things You Need To Know About How to Buy a Recliner

There’s no better seat for Dad in the house than a comfortable recliner. If you haven’t shopped for a recliner in decades, it’s important to know how to buy a recliner. Today’s options are stylish, high tech, super pampering, and even a little deceitful when it comes to looks. At first glance you might not even realize that comfortable chair is a recliner.

Comfort

The entire purpose of a recliner is to provide you with a comfortable seat. But what does that mean to you? You will want a chair that fits your height and width. Check the placement of the headrest. Do you prefer power features that make the chair completely adjustable? Or do you just want a chair that allows you to put up your feet? It helps to test drive a few styles to find out your preferences.

Size

How much space do you have for a recliner? Remember, you have to consider not just the chair, but the room it will need to recline. Some models are made to sit against a wall, while others require more clearance. When you shop for a chair, measure it closed as well as fully reclined; you need two to three feet of space behind it to fully expand. If space is tight, consider a wall recliner, which takes up less space and is a good choice for a smaller room.

Fabric

Recliners come in a wide range of colors and upholstery options, and each has its advantages. If you have children, leather can be a great choice as is not only luxurious; it wipes clean. If you have pets, microsuede is durable and stain-resistant. Consider your lifestyle and how much wear and tear your recliner will be getting and choose the upholstery that is the best fit.

5 Things Every Man Cave Needs

It may sound like something out of the Stone Age, but a man cave is a thoroughly modern way to give men a space of their own and women a little peace and quiet.

Adding one is simple, so make room in your basement, unused bedroom or even your garage. Here’s what you need:
