How Much Does a La-Z-Boy Lift Chair Cost?

Many factors influence the cost of a lift recliner. Quality, customization and upgrades, to name a few. It’s essential to keep in mind how often your recliner will be used and what purpose it will serve. 

Four principle price brackets are identified below, along with the corresponding La-Z-Boy lift power recliner series.

Least Expensive Lift Chair Recliner Cost – Bronze Series ($1,299 – $1,899)

The Margaret and Miller lift recliner styles in the bronze series are priced at the low-mid range of lift chairs now available in the market. Although they are our least expensive lift chairs, the quality of materials and customization options are the main reasons for the higher price.

Lift recliners in the bronze series can be placed just 2 inches from a wall, which fits beautifully in small spaces. Designed for smaller users, it features a shorter seat height and has a weight capacity of 300 pounds.  

Bronze series lift recliners have a wide stance construction with a tubular steel base that provides a solid foundation. Note, they have a one-year warranty on electrical components versus a three-year warranty for styles in other series.

MARGARET BRONZE POWER LIFT RECLINER

The casual style of the Margaret lift recliner blends easily with your existing pieces. It is currently stocked as a “special buy” item in a cream fabric that retails for $1299 (see image to the right). This competitive price is available due to a bulk order of this style in one available cover at a lower cost, then discounted for the consumer. The regular starting cost of the Margaret power lift chair is $1,629.

MILLER BRONZE POWER LIFT RECLINER

Low to Mid Range Lift Chair Recliner Cost – Silver Series ($2,100 – $2,499)

The James power lift chair is the only style in our silver series.  With its convenient space-saving design, you can fully recline with the chair placed just five inches from a wall.  The James lift recliner has a standard seat scale and a lift capacity of 325 pounds.

JAMES SILVER POWER LIFT RECLINER

Comfortable, cool and laid back, James makes relaxing look as great as it feels. It has a standard scale and an inviting bucket style seat.

To help you create a cohesive design, La-Z-Boy offers style sets. The James style is what we call a supergroup as it has a sofa, loveseat and sectional option. To learn more about this style and other power series recliner products, check out this review of the James Power Recliner.

Mid Range Lift Chair Recliner Cost – Gold Series ($3,149 – $3,499)

In this price bracket, the Clayton Gold Power Lift Recliner with massage and heat is available for a starting price of $3,149. One of the main differentiating factors in the gold series Clayton model is the ability for independent back and legrest positions. As a result, there are more options in the controller. Furthermore, the Clayton, along with platinum series lift recliners, feature a box in box construction, and it boasts the highest weight capacity of 500 pounds.

CLAYTON GOLD POWER LIFT RECLINER WITH MASSAGE & HEAT

Functionality and rugged good looks make Clayton a stylish addition to any room. Activate the high/low heat and 6-motor massage for additional comfort. Use the ergonomically designed wired controller to get in or out, or fully recline.

High-End Lift Chair Recliner Cost – Platinum Series ($2,599 – $4,000)

The platinum series lift recliners have a model without massage and heat, so the starting cost is lower. The massage and heat model are priced similarly to the Clayton in the gold series and fall in the mid-price range. However, the additional headrest and lumbar model provide the Astor and Pinnacle lift recliners with their platinum status and corresponding highest price point. When you can adjust the lumbar support and headrest tilt independently to fit your body, you can experience a complete custom fit! 

Designed especially for larger users, lift recliners in the platinum series feature deep, wide seats and come standard with a tall base. This base adds 1.5 inches to the overall height of the recliner.

Could you benefit from having a chair recline into bed layout to reduce pressure on your lower back and spine? For some people, a recliner is a much more comfortable position to be in than lying flat. The added functionality of zero gravity positioning is only available in the platinum series lift chairs. This position involves elevating your legs over your heart’s level, which promotes circulation in the legs and reduces swelling.

PINNACLE PLATINUM POWER LIFT RECLINER

The Pinnacle is not only our top selling lift chair but La-Z-Boy’s best selling recliner family! It has a pillowed tall back and padded rolled arms. Size and comfort are the main reason for its popularity; it’s comfortable without overpowering the room and has a starting price of $2,599.

Options and Upgrades Available For a Power Lift Recliner and How It Affects Price

Take some time to investigate your choices so that your new lift chair recliner doesn’t just suit your home; it suits your way of living.  Power lift recliners have various customization options available.

Upholstery / Cover Options

Your choice of fabric or leather upholstery is a pivotal decision when selecting a lift chair recliner. There are several hundred cover options so you can custom-create a look that’s uniquely yours. Choose from a wide variety of colours, patterns and textures. Life can be hard on furniture, so our fabrics and leathers are wear-tested for quality and durability, ensuring they stay beautiful for years.

Perfect for life’s little mishaps, our stain-resistant iClean™ fabrics repel spills before they turn into stains.  These fabrics have a luxurious feel and are available in dozens of colours and patterns for the Pinnacle power lift chair.

The Pinnacle also has a subset of covers available in “conserve” fabric. Soft, durable, and sustainable “conserve” fabric is made out of recycled water bottles. We use as many as 50 recycled water bottles to create a recliner with this eco-friendly material. They come in a wide range of colours and patterns to complement your room.

It is important to note that leather covers are not available in our massage and heat models.

Seat Cushions

High-quality polyurethane foam gives recliner cushions increased softness and support while providing exceptional durability.

Upgrade to Airform™ responsive cushioning for comfort that contours to your body and reduces pressure to sensitive areas like your hips and back. This upgrade is a good option if you enjoy a firm seat.

Other Factors During Purchase that Affect Lift Chair Recliner Cost

Additional warranty

Most manufacturers offer one year of coverage, so it’s up to the retailer to provide better service and have their own extended warranty service plan. Learn more about the furniture protection plan offered by La-Z-Boy in the Ottawa/Kingston area.

Financing

Purchasing big-ticket furniture items for a house, such as a lift chair recliner, can prove to be quite the investment. Although these items are essential in the process of making a house into a home, it can sometimes be tricky to come up with the cash to cover these expenses right away.

That is why most furniture stores offer the option of furniture financing! Financing allows you to furnish your home sooner and pay off the investment over time.  Learn more about how furniture financing works.

Delivery Costs

The La-Z-Boy Ottawa & Kingston delivery team will unpackage, inspect & set up your delivered furniture, including power chairs and sofas. The team will make sure the furniture is operational and guide you through the process to your satisfaction. Learn more about our delivery and pick up services.

Tax Deduction in Canada

Did you know that you save the tax when you have a doctor’s note? Lift chairs are zero-rated for tax purposes when you have a requisition from your doctor. You will also save the taxes on delivery and warranty charges related to the lift chair!
