Choosing furniture that’s beautiful will make any room of your home look more appealing and give it a visually striking aesthetic. While gorgeous furnishings are wonderful for adding style to your space, comfort and the correct fit are just as important. If you choose pieces that don’t fit your lifestyle or your body type, you could end up avoiding sitting on your new furniture altogether.
Having comfortable furniture that fits the room and your size will ensure that you’ve made a wise investment that you’ll love to sink into every single day. So, how do you know how to find the right furniture that fits? Read on to learn more about choosing leather furniture that will fit you and your home perfectly.

The Best Furniture Size for Your Body Type
Furniture That Is Too Short
If you’re tall, you need furniture that will fit you comfortably so you can sit and stretch out without feeling cramped. Furniture that’s too short can cause you to feel extremely uncomfortable and it promotes bad posture. When your chairs and sofas are too short, you’ll kink your neck and end up with recurring pain. In some cases, you could overextend your neck and wind up with a pinched nerve or a muscle strain. It’s also extremely difficult to see forward when watching TV if your furniture is too short. You may even deal with leg and ankle pain since your body will naturally use your legs as support. This puts excess pressure on the limbs, which defeats the purpose of comfortable furniture in the first place!
Furniture That Is Too Tall
For those on the shorter side, it’s possible to buy furniture that is too tall for your body type. This is also bad since it will affect your posture, too. As you sit on furniture that is too tall, your chin will tend to tuck into your chest. This results in serious neck pain over time that can be hard to correct. Ideally, furniture that fits your body type and height should support five distinct pressure points on the body. These pressure points include the head, shoulders, lumbar and lower back, knees, and feet. If the back of your furniture is too high, it causes a choking feeling on the neck. If the back is too low, you’ll end up looking at the ceiling. Perfect-fitting furniture should support your back and neck while promoting good posture so you can face forward and read or watch television comfortably.
Perfect Fit Furniture
It’s always wise to find furniture that fits you perfectly to encourage good posture and reduce neck, back, and leg pain. Furniture that fits your body type perfectly will give you the support and comfort you need to enjoy the pieces you’ve selected. Use a tape measure and record the distance from the back of your knee to your heel. Then, measure the length from your tailbone to the back of your knee. And finally, measure the arm from the elbow to the palm of your hand and your body width from hip to hip. These measurements will help us create the custom leather furniture you need in the perfect dimensions for your size.
After you have your body measurements, make sure that the chair or sofa you want supports your tailbone and lower back when you’re seated all the way back. Your feet should remain flat on the floor and should never extend or dangle so your heels need to rest on the floor. This simple test ensures you’re getting the leg, knee, and back support you need to be comfortable. Make sure the armrests of your leather sofa, sectional, or recliner extend from the elbow to the end of your hand for excellent wrist and arm support. The width of the furniture should leave at least a one-inch gap when you sit down for the perfect fit.
The Benefits of Adjustable Power Headrests
The ability to adjust the headrest on your leather furniture is an added bonus that provides consistent support for your neck. Not only will have leather furniture that fits your body type, you’ll be able to adjust the headrest for the perfect amount of support you need. When you can adjust the headrest to suit your needs, it’s much easier to avoid neck strain. You should be able to change the height depending on where you’re looking. This option provides you with viewing convenience for TV along with comfort while reading. Some headrests adjust in height, while others allow you to adjust the sides or width for additional support. An adjustable power headrest is one of the most effective ways to be sure you’re getting the support you need from your furniture.
