When it comes to furniture, the layout of your living room can have a big impact on how you feel. Whether you’re watching TV or just relaxing with friends, having two recliner chairs together is one way to make sure everyone has an enjoyable time.
But there are several different ways that they can be arranged about each other. In this article, we will explore how best to arrange two recliner chairs together and the pros and cons of each option so that you can make an informed decision about which arrangement will work best for your space!
Recliner Chair Arrangement Ideas
Arrangement #One: The chairs are placed on the same side of a sofa, facing each other. This is one of the most common arrangements because it offers ample room for two people to recline and enjoy their time together with plenty of legroom. The downside, however, is that this arrangement can make it tough to access the sofa without disturbing the recliners.
Arrangement #Two: You will place the chairs on opposite sides of a window, facing each other. This is an excellent option for those who want to enjoy uninterrupted views and have two people sitting by themselves while still having enough space to access the windows or furniture in this area if they need to. The downside, however, is that this arrangement leaves little room for people to walk around the chairs and can make it difficult for them to access the windows or furniture in this area if they need to.
Arrangement #Three: One chair faces a window while the other sits against a wall on one side of a sofa. This arrangement is perfect for those who need to have people walking around the chairs and want a lot of space. The downside, however, is that this leaves little room for windows or furniture in this area if they need to be accessed.
Arrangement #Five: Recliner one faces a window while the other sits against a wall on one side of an armchair. This arrangement is ideal for those who need people to be walking around them and want plenty of space without sacrificing access to windows or furniture in this area if they need it. The downside, however, is that when you’re sitting close together like this, there’s no natural way to face one another.
Arrangement #Six: One chair faces a window while the other sits against a wall on the side of an armchair with its back facing out towards you and your partner.
This arrangement is perfect for those who need people to be walking around them, want plenty of space without sacrificing access to windows or furniture in this area if they need it, and want a way to face one another.
The downside is that because the chairs are pushed against an armchair with their backs facing you, there isn’t much space between them for other things like a side table, tray of food, drink bottles–anything but your two bodies.
Arrangement #Six: The two chairs are parallel with one another facing in the same direction.
This arrangement looks nice from a distance but also means that you can’t face each other, and there’s not much space between them for anything else either–if they were too far apart to be near one another then they would look strange.
Arrangement #Seven: The two chairs are sitting in an L-shape with their backs facing one another.
This is the most intimate of these six arrangements–you’re literally back to back but you can still see each other’s faces because they’re not facing away from each other like Arrangements One and Two.
It also leaves a lot of room for other things, like drinks or your feet.
Arrangement #Eight: The two chairs are sitting back-to-back, with their backs facing opposite directions and the arms touching on either end. This is how you would typically see two recliners at home if they’re not next to each other.
Arrangement #Nine: This is the most common way to arrange two recliners in an open space, with one chair facing away from the other and their arms each toward opposite ends of the room.
Arrangement #Ten: The chairs are turned so they’re side-to-side but still back-to-back, with the arms touching on either end.
Arrangement #Eleven: The chairs are facing each other and their backs touch at one side of the room or where they’re sitting. This arrangement is typically only available for those who have two recliners that also happen to be next to each other in a small space.
Arrangement #Twelve: The two chairs are sitting in a U-shape with their backs facing one another and their arms touching the backrests on either side. This is how you would typically see two recliners at an outdoor movie theater–unless they have some sort of armrests.
How to Protect Recliners from Stains
The cover material for your reclining chair should be resistant to stains. Wool, cotton, and linen are popular materials because they’re natural fibers that resist dirt, fading, or oil from food.
If you can’t find a slipcover in one of these fabrics but still want the stain protection benefits of using these types of fabric then consider purchasing a washable slipcover in another fabric such as one made from 100% cotton.
