DH and I are looking for a nice piece of furniture that we can use in the nursery, but then eventually move into a living room. So my question is:
Is there a huge difference between gliders sold in baby stores vs. gliders sold in regular furniture stores? We were at Babies r us today, and the gliders that were on display there just seemed very nursery oriented. Most of them had a seperate ottoman. I wasn't cray about any of the models I saw there, and I am guessing that I will end up tripping over the ottoman more often than I will use it.
We also went to a furniture store and checked out a Lazy Boy glider that reclines. It seemed to be more solid, and would transition better into another room. I am inclined to buy this glider, but will I regret that decision later and wish I went with a baby-oriented glider?
Also, is there a benefit to having an ottoman with a glider, or will a reclining glider be okay? Am I really going to be rocking at the same time I have my feet up? I dunno. Maybe I am over thinking this?
Thanks for any advice - I greatly appreciate it!
