Ashley Furnitures Review: Recliners and More

The La-Z-Boy name became synonymous with recliners after the company made its first reclining chair in 1928 in Monroe, Michigan. The first La-Z-Boy reclining sofas was originally a wood-slat porch chair, which was later upholstered at a buyer’s suggestion.

The company was a very modest operation at that time, and the name La-Z-Boy was later suggested by an employee who won $25 for coming up with it.

While La-Z-Boy makes upholstered furniture only, the La-Z-Boy corporation owns several other well-known brands, such as American Drew, Kincaid Furniture, Hammary, and Lea, which also manufacture case goods.

 

The La-Z-Boy Brand

The company is so well-known for its sofa reclining that the name of the company is often used to mean “recliner.”

You will find Ashley Furnitures in the mid-price point, and it is good value for the price. The quality and price points are comparable to Lane, Broyhill, and Pottery Barn.

Style-wise, La-Z-Boy has stayed close to its traditional roots, but the company has been making an effort to change that image by bringing in fresher design in response to changing demographics. The company brought in Brooke Shields in 2010 to enhance its appeal to younger female buyers.

Ashley Furniture Stores

La-Z-Boy manufactures upholstered seating furniture — sofa with recliner, chairs, sofas, theater seating, sectionals, and sleepers in a variety of fabrics and leather.

Most La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries try to stock for immediate delivery, but the Ashley Furniture Store can be custom ordered. This adds to the delivery time frame up to eight to 10 weeks.

Customization is limited to fabric only. La-Z-Boy offers close to a thousand fabric and leather choices in different grades. The choice of fabric affects your final price, as is to be expected when you buy any piece of upholstered furniture.

The Good

This is a well-known brand of affordable furniture with a reputation built up over time.

It offers good value for the price. La-Z-Boy furniture is widely available at Ashley Furniture Outlets.

The company is also trying to become more environmentally friendly by taking steps such as reusing or recycling most factory scraps. Most of the furniture is made in America. The frames and many of the components for furniture that reclines are manufactured domestically.

The Not So Good

Maybe the biggest consumer peeve is not enough variety in style, although the company is trying to address that. Also, because many La-Z-Boy Galleries are individually franchised stores, and not company-owned, your shopping experience might vary considerably from one store to another. Guarantees may also differ from Ashley Home Furniture Store to store. You also cannot buy a La-Z-Boy product in one area and have it shipped by a La-Z-Boy store in another part of the country.

Where to Buy La-Z-Boy Furniture

La-Z-Boy products are available worldwide through several different channels, such as company-owned and individually franchised La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries, La-Z-Boy Comfort Studios and independent retailers who carry a mix of furniture from different brands.

La-Z-Boy products can be seen and purchased online on its website, which also has a store locator to help you find your nearest store.

It is best to test drive upholstered furniture before you buy.

WHAT ARE HOT TUB SHELLS MADE OF?

Your hot tub’s shell keeps your water contained inside your tub; it’s also a key determining factor in how well your spa retains heat. As the surface of your hot tub presents to the world, the shell must be strong enough to stand up to mishaps and to withstand years of regular use. If aesthetic concerns are important to you, it must be visually appealing as well as highly functional. Hot tub shells come in a variety of materials, each possessing their own strengths and weaknesses. Learning more about what hot tub shells are made of can give you a better idea about which hot tub would be best suited for your needs.

Until the 1970s, hot tub shells were primarily constructed out of wood. Today, only a few manufacturers continue to craft shells this way; these days, a typical hottub shell is most likely to be made from vinyl, rotomolded plastic, or acrylic. Hot tubs can also be constructed from cement, stainless steel, fiberglass, or inflatable PVC, though these are less common.

HOT TUB SHELLS MADE FROM VINYL

Some cheapest hottubs are constructed through a process in which a vinyl liner is placed over a frame made from another material, such as cement. This is the same method that’s frequently used in the manufacturing of swimming pools. Vinyl liner hot tubs are commonly found attached to inground pools; while they’re inexpensive to produce, they don’t retain heat well. A vinyl liner hot tub may be relatively cheap to purchase, especially if it’s part of a package deal with your swimming pool, but what you save on the sticker price may be eaten up by the cost of the electricity it takes to keep your hot tub warm. Vinyl is not an especially durable material; a vinyl hot tub shell is more likely to crack or tear than a shell made from stronger materials. Continuous exposure to sunlight will fade the color of your vinyl hot tub liner, while an incorrect balance of chemicals in your hot tub can damage it.

HOT TUB SHELLS MADE FROM ROTOMOLDED PLASTIC

Rotomolded swim hot tubs are made from plastic powder, which is added to a mold, heated until it melts, and then rotated until it covers every bit of the mold in a smooth and even layer. Unlike the glossy surface of acrylic shells, rotomolded plastic shells have a dull matte finish. Compared to acrylic shells, plastic shells are relatively lightweight. This results in a lighter and more easily transportable hot tub, which may give you more options as to where it may be placed in your yard or on your deck. The downside, however, is an inability to efficiently retain heat. As with hot tubs built with vinyl liners, the initial savings from their lower purchase price will be eroded over time, as owners of rotomolded hot tubs typically pay more in electricity than owners of more energy-efficient spas.

HOT TUB SHELLS MADE FROM ACRYLIC

An acrylic hot tub shell is made from a single sheet of acrylic, which is heated until it begins to melt, then placed over a mold. Vacuums help suck away any air trapped between the mold and the acrylic sheet, resulting in a smooth and perfectly formed shell. After the acrylic has cooled and hardened, it’s reinforced with a combination of resin and fiberglass to give it additional strength. Some acrylic shells are formed through a variant process in which a layer of the polymer acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, known as ABS, is pre-applied to the sheet before molding. The resulting hot tub shell is durable, energy efficient, and aesthetically pleasing. This video provides an overview of the way in which acrylic shells are formed.

If you own an acrylic hot tub, expect it to withstand normal wear and tear for many years without showing signs of damage. Acrylic hot tubs are produced in a variety of stunning colors and patterns. Also, acrylic hot tubs retain their heat very well when insulated with a high-quality material.

Acrylic hot tubs are heavier than rotomolded hot tubs. As they can’t be easily repositioned, they work best as a permanent installation in your backyard or on your deck. While acrylic tubs are more expensive than vinyl or plastic tubs, their excellent temperature retention translates to lower energy needs than other hot tubs. This in turn reduces the ongoing cost of the electricity needed to keep your water hot.

While hot tub shells made of other materials have some advantages, hot tubs with acrylic shells are the connoisseur’s choice, aimed at those who value quality, performance, and appearance. For a better idea of which hot tub shell would be best for you, visit your local hot tub dealer. Your dealer can answer all your questions about energy costs and durability; you may even be able to take a test soak. When purchasing a hot tub, many decisions are involved, such as determining which shell material would work best for your lifestyle. Your hot tub dealer can help you find the solution that works best for you.

HOT TUB BUYING GUIDE – FOR NEW HOT TUB BUYERS

If you are shopping for a new hot tub, it can be difficult to sift through all the information available. Deciding which factors are the most important and choosing the right hot tub for you can seem impossible. You need a hot tub buying guide to help.

For those looking to buy their first hot tub there can be a lot of guess work regarding how often you’ll use the tub and for what. If you are looking to replace your old tub it can be a bit easier. At least you know how you will use it. Even if you’re looking for a replacement tub, though, you probably bought your last one quite some time ago. Features, styles, and materials have come a long way. You might just find yourself second guessing what options are right for you.

This post aims to un-muddy the waters somewhat, to help you focus on the important parts of buying a new discounted hot tubs.

Where is the Hot Tub Going?

The first consideration is where you are going to put the hot tubs. First of all will it be outdoors or indoors? If outdoors you’ll need to make sure the thermal properties and build quality of the hot tub can stand up to your climate year round. If indoors, it won’t need to be quite so sturdy. You will need to make sure that it isn’t too big to pass through doorways and hallways on its way to its final location though.

Once you’ve decided on out or in, you need to make sure that the place you intend to install the tub meets all the requirements. The surface the tub will rest on needs to be flat, level and solid. A poured concrete patio or a solid deck is fine, but paving stones are a bad idea. They can shift and cause structural problems for your factory direct hot tub’s frame. In-ground hot tubs are, of course, dug in. They still need to be level, though.

The hot tub will also need power and water, so should be conveniently located for both. Hot tubs come in 110V, 220V and mixed voltage varieties. You’ll need to make sure you have the correct wiring in place to run the hot tub. You will also need to empty and refill the tub a few times a year. This is much easier to do if you have a convenient source of running water nearby. And speaking of draining and refilling, the site for the (hot tubs prices) also needs to have adequate drainage.

It is also important to make sure that there is enough room on all sides of the hot tub to service it when necessary.

How many People do You Know?

It goes without saying your popularity will increase once you take the splash into a new hot tub. All kidding aside, you need to consider how many people are in the family and how many will use the spa. If your a family of four or more you will want a 7′ to 8′ hot tub that will fit your family. If you are just a couple, a smaller hot tub might do the trick but do consider you may have some friends over at some point.

Hot tubs come in all shapes and sizes, you just need to choose the right one for you and your guests. The other thing that may help make your choice is the power source you can dedicate to your new hot tub. If you only have a 110v available you will be looking at a smaller hot tub or sacrifice the hydrotherapy in a larger tub.

What’s it For?

There are a few reasons people buy a hot tub.

  • Recreation
  • Fitness
  • Relaxation/stress management
  • Medical treatment,

Your main reason will determine the type of tub you want, and what features you’ll need. If you are buying one for fitness, you may want to look into models with built-in exercise equipment or maybe get a swim spa. If you are interested in hydrotherapy*, you’ll be most interested in temperature controls and the variety of jets the different models have. Your use for the hot tub will determining the features you need.

There are portable hot tubs and then there are really portable hot tubs that you can put up and take down in minutes. You will want to decide if that is the type of portability you want in your hot tub. The blowup tubs or the soft-sided tubs can be taken anywhere and moved easily. However, you do give up a little in the hydrotherapy department and the aesthetics of the unit.

*Please also remember that any medical treatments that involving your hot tub should also involve the advice of a qualified physician.

Consider the Cost

It’s important to consider of the purchase price of your hot tub. It’s even more important to consider the total cost of ownership. Especially for an outdoor tub, you should be asking how efficient the heating system is, how well the tub retains heat, and how effective the water filtration system is.

It might be a bit more for the model with solid foam insulation, for example, but many people will recoup that extra money in the first year through lower heating costs. More efficient heaters means less energy, and money, spent getting the tub up to heat. More effective filtration means less time and money spent on chemicals and adjustments to water chemistry.

Sometimes spending a bit more can actually save you money.

Also included in the cost of ownership are accessories and chemicals. You will need a hot tub cover that fits your tub, and a cover lifter is never a bad idea. You’ll probably want some sturdy steps to help getting in and out easily as well. None of these things are generally included in the purchase price of a new hot tub, but you should certainly include them in your budget.

Hot Tub Buying Guide – Try before you Buy

It’s a great idea to do your research into the different models, features and specifications online. It’s also a great idea to make a list of a few models that meet your needs on paper, and then go to a local dealer if possible to try them out. Most reputable dealers will be able to arrange for you to test a few models and see how they feel “in the flesh”. And if you can not try them out in your trunks, then just sit in them dry it will still give you an idea. You will want a tub with different seating levels because not everyone is six foot tall. Consider the kids, smaller, or large adults when trying the seating in the hot tubs.

When it’s time to buy you can either buy from a dealer or online, but make sure to ask about warranty service, and only buy from a seller that’s been in business for a while – they are more likely to still be around a year or two down the road.

New or Used

I am a big believer in looking for used hot tubs! For whatever reason you can find hot tubs on Craigslist or other classifieds all the time. Whether people are moving or looking to change their backyard you can find used hot tubs and a lot of times people just want them moved and are not looking to make much or anything back in return. The secret to this is to be patient and find the right tub, you don’t want someone else’s problems. If you take your time and wait for the right hot tub to come along you may save yourself a bunch of money and be just as happy as you would be buying new.

A few things to look at if you are buying used is moist and wet foam insulation means it has a leak steer clear of this. The hot tub cover is really heavy, you will have to replace it with a new hot tub cover. The jets fallout when the tub goes on means you will have to replace a few jets make sure they are still available.

That’s most of what you need to keep in mind while shopping for a new hot tub. There are other factors and details that you can think about, but if you stick to these bases you can’t go too far wrong. We hope are hot tub buying guide will be helpful in your search for the perfect hot tub for you. The hours of stress relief and the soothing of aching muscles, the better sleeps and full range of motion in the morning will make the hours invested in picking out your perfect hot tub worthwhile!

8 Popular Cabinet Door Styles for Kitchens of All Kinds

Your cabinet door style can be one of the most important factors in your kitchen’s new design. Not only are cabinet doors one of the most visible design elements in a kitchen cabinets wholesale, but they can also be one of the most expensive. From the elaborate to the simple, there’s a door style for every home design. Take a look at some of the better-known styles here and see which will work for your home’s style and your budget.

Shaker. The Shaker-style discount cabinetry cabinet door is the most common door style in kitchens today. This five-piece flat-panel style has a frame made from four pieces and a single flat center panel for the fifth piece.

Shaker cabinetry gets its name from the distinctive Shaker furniture style, which uses simple, clean lines and emphasizes utility. Shaker-style doors became popular because their simple style lends itself to just about any decor — from contemporary to traditional — with variations in wood species, stains, paint colors and hardware.

This classic style can work with a variety of budgets, depending on the wood used. Some manufacturers can even replace the center door panel with a more cost-effective material. Using a natural finish rather than a painted one could save you up to 20 percent on your purchase, too.

Louvered. Horizontal wood slats are typically used on windows, furniture pieces and interior doors, but they add a distinct architectural style to discount kitchen cabinets. However, be aware that these beauties come with a heavy price tag.

Many louvered doors have spaces between each slat, making them great for cabinets that require ventilation — like a cabinet near a radiator, a dedicated clothes drying cabinet in a laundry room or cabinetry for cable boxes and DVD players.

Flat. Simple but stylish, the flat-panel cabinet door is void of any expensive details. Its hard lines and minimalist form make it a great fit for contemporary and modern interiors.

Many flat doors come in decorative laminate or wood. Laminate tends to be more budget friendly and offers a greater variety of colors and sheens.

Inset. Although this style tends to be one of the most expensive on the market, it’s a classic look that’ll last for generations. The inset door gets its name because it is set inside of the kitchen cabinets cheap frame — typical cabinet doors rest on the outside of the frame. The door is designed and constructed with extremely precise measurements so that it nests inside the frame and opens and closes properly, even when the wood expands and contracts.

This door style usually requires exposed hinges rather than the typical concealed hinges of other door styles that are included in the cost of the cabinet box. Make sure that your budget takes this into account — two hinges per door will quickly add up.

Distressed. If you’ve always dreamed of having an antique-style kitchen, then you’ll love the distressed-looking cabinets available from most manufacturers. Choose any door style and opt to have the corners rubbed off or have other distressing techniques done for that age-old feeling. All this extra work will cost you, though; there’s usually a 15 to 20 percent upcharge for a tradesperson to actually destroy your brand-new doors.

Beadboard. Love cottage style? It doesn’t get more cottage chic than beadboard. The center panel of the cabinet doors in this style are made to look like traditional beadboard paneling. Beadboard was used in the past as a decorative wall treatment before plaster, drywall and paint became common.

While all-white beadboard cabinetry can give your kitchen a bright and clean feel, all the little cracks and crevasses on this door style can be a pain to keep clean.

Thermofoil. These doors are molded out of MDF (medium-density fiberboard), wrapped in a plastic-type coating and then baked under intense heat to create an impervious seal. Durable and cost effective, they come only in solid colors and imitation wood grain.

Often mass-produced, thermofoil cabinetry comes at very competitive price points. It’s durable, but it’s also extremely difficult to repair any damage to it. Some lighter colors can also yellow from sunlight and heat over time.

Custom. Can’t find any door style on the market that really complements your unique design intention? Design your own!

Contact a local designer or craftsperson to help you create a personalized design. This Shaker-style cabinet door has a center panel of corrugated metal instead of wood for an industrial and utilitarian look that can stand up to years of abuse.

However, in order to get the right recliner, you have to take a number of factors into consideration.

With these basic factors in mind, you have to consider other factors as well, before you can finally decide on what sort of recliner you want for yourself.

Considering Durability And Comfort 

When you are investing in a recliner, durability is one of the most important factors that you have to consider when you are buying. This is because recliners are long term investments, and when you are buying one, you expect several years of consistent service from them, no matter how often it is used.

The material also determines the comfort that the recliner offers to the use. Leather is a very durable material, and much favored by people who are looking for recliners. It is also easier to maintain than the alternative, which is fabric. However, in some cases, it is seen that fabric recliners are more comfortable than leather ones, because of their soft surface and comfortable weave. Depending on the amount of time that you are willing to dedicate to your recliner for its washing and maintenance, you can choose from any option, which you find comfortable and durable.

Considering The Mechanics In Your Recliner

Depending on the look of your room, and also the amount of space in your room, you can choose the kind of recliner that will best suite your needs. If you have a small room, then you have to choose those reclining sofas which consume less amount of space, while not compromising on the comfort factor. Even when it is in the reclined position, it should look compact. However, in case of large rooms, you can get recliners which stretch out to a large extent with its backrest and footrest.

The Budget 

This is another important factor that you have to consider when you are picking out a recliner for yourself from sofas stores. The budget is very important because it can determine things like the size, the material, the features and other things about your recliner. You have to have a very clear idea about the amount of money that you are willing to spend on your recliner, so that you can make the optimal choice, within your budget.

When you are choosing your recliner, you have to take care of certain final things, before you can actually purchase it. Before you buy, it is always best to test it, and make sure that you will feel comfortable and at home in the recliner. You also need to know what the different things are that you have to take care of in the recliner to increase durability. You must make sure that your recliner packs all the features that you need, in order to have a comfortable experience.
