The Top Small Recliner for Your Bedroom According to Our Experts


Small Recliner for Your Bedroom

Your bedroom should be a place of peace and comfort. Your bed is the focal point, of course, but what else should go inside your favorite room in the house? Anything that makes you feel relaxed, comfortable, healthy, soothed, and happy could be placed in your bedroom. If you’re looking for a spot to take a quick nap or read as part of your bedtime routine, you’ll want to shop for small recliners for the bedroom. Neither of these activities should be done in bed, so it’s a great addition to your room!

Is it Okay to Take a Nap?

You may have read that experts advise against taking a nap, as it may make it harder to fall asleep at night. This is true, but it’s important to note that this is referring to long daytime sleeping of an hour or two. In fact, studies show that a short afternoon nap is great for adults! When done in the mid-afternoon, a nap can boost memory, improve job performance, lift your mood, make you more alert, and ease stress.

You’ll want to follow a few guidelines in order to reap the most benefits and avoid any nighttime disruptions to your sleep schedule. Aim to nap for only about 20 minutes. The longer you nap, the more likely you are to feel groggy afterward. As well, it is advised to take naps in the early afternoon. Napping after 3 p.m. can interfere with nighttime sleep. Experts also advise against napping in your bed and instead recommend you find a few minutes of shut eye elsewhere, like a favorite recliner.

If you’ve ever fallen asleep in a recliner and absolutely loved your nap, you’re not alone. Recliners have been a favorite nap spot ever since they were invented. Did you know you can buy your next recliner, one made specifically to sleep in, from us here at City Mattress? It is true!

Why You Shouldn’t Nap in Bed

You may be wondering why you would nap in one of our  small recliners for your bedroom instead of your bed. After all, you’ve worked to make your bed a true slumber oasis, from the mattress to the sheets to the pillows. You want to sleep there whenever you can! Actually, experts advise against this. In fact, you’re not supposed to do anything in bed other than romantic activities and sleep for the night.

Because you’re trying to keep your nap short, around 20 minutes, it’s better to nap in a recliner rather than crawling into bed. The reason? It’ll be difficult to keep your nap short!
