These two recliners sat near the top of our list of the top recliners being sold in this year and for good reason. Both of these recliners are awesome at what they do and they do many things, as many as a recliner can really do. While they are both great, one must be better than the other. Some say it’s the HomCom, others say the 360 Degree Swivel recliner is better, but at the moment when we made our list, we gave a slight edge to the HomCom Deluxe.
HomCom Deluxe Recliner
Number two on our list; what more is there to be said? This thing was the top dog in our eyes and is slightly above the second place recliner by Recliner Genius.
- Feature Heavy
- Great Cushioning
- Swivel Base Makes Getting Up A Chore
- Footrest Difficulties
- Less Heat Lower Back
Mecor Heated Recliner Chair
We’ve already mentioned how we feel about this chair, it is the Mercedes Benz of the recliner world. It does many things and on a level that most other manufacturers can’t match and that is why it was placed so high on our list.
- Luxurious Feel
- Feature Heavy
- Great Materials Are Easy To Clean
- Padded Armrests
- Not Very Sturdy
- Less Durable
Swivelling, Rocking & Reclining
The most primitive features of recliners are these. Both are mostly quite exceptional at the basics but the HomCom Deluxe has been known to make it a bit of a hassle to close the footrest. It has also been noted that because of the swivel base, getting up isn’t that easy either. With the Mecor Heated Recliner Chair however, these things had been touched on prior to release; you won’t have the same difficulties. Everything runs smoothly on this recliner and getting up is a breeze. Rocking is more or less the same on both chairs, but the 360 Degree Swivel Recliner seems to have a range wider than the HomCom (you can have a longer recline). Most people would like that and taking all things into consideration, the 360 Degree Swivel Leather Recliner wins this category.
Massage & Heating
This is our toughest category to compare these two recliners because they are both so good at heating and massage. On one hand, we can say that the HomCom’s heating in the lower back could have been done better, but the HomCom Deluxe’s massaging capabilities seem to be a tad better than that of the 360 Degree Swivel Leather Recliner. Neither of the recliners are bad in one of these categories, but since the race is so close you have to pay attention to even the smallest of details. It is for these small details why we have to give this round to the 360 Degree Recliner as well. HomCom could’ve done better on their heating and while it is not that big of a deal, it cost them here.
Cushioning & Comfort
It’s hard to find a recliner without great cushioning and support in today’s day and age, but you can find some. These two recliners certainly aren’t lacking in that area but one is better than the other; and the better one would be the HomCom Deluxe. The HomCom’s body is wider than the 360 Degree Swivel Recliner and has slightly better cushioning which to us equaled in superior comfort. Yes, we enjoyed the PU leather but that isn’t enough to win a category so for that reason alone, HomCom wins.
You have to give it to the designers, they did a wonderful job with how these recliners look. Both are fashionable in their own ways, and both look good to most people. In this particular situation, we liked the HomCom Deluxe better because of its wide design; we like traditional recliners and this Deluxe recliner is great at bringing the best of both worlds. The 360 Degree Swivel Recliner has a thinner body which also looks great, but as they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
As you can very well see, the comparison ends in a draw; that’s how close the race is between these two recliners. Neither have any real or noticeable weakness which makes our final decision making even harder, but just like on our list the slight edge goes to the HomCom Deluxe simply because of its look. When you have two recliners that are so even in just about everything, the small details matter and we chose this recliner for the simple fact that it has a wider frame, and that’s a look we like.
