Everyone needs a comfortable place to sit/relax – whether in the living room, in the kitchen, in the bedroom, at the backyard or even when out there camping.

One size fits all does not work when it comes to furniture. Different people are created differently and therefore, have different needs when it comes to furniture.

Some people have small bodies. Others have average bodies. And there are plus size people like me who have bodies larger than the average person.

The small and average people are okay with the ordinary furniture but we, the plus size people, require plus size furniture – for maximum comfort and safety.

Furniture for heavy weight is able to accommodate the size and weight of any plus size people. Ordinary furniture is not only uncomfortable but also risky. It could collapse under your weight causing injuries.

Don’t settle for risky and uncomfortable furniture! Choose heavy duty furniture!

The following are some of my top recommendations when it comes to furniture for heavy and big people;

Factors to consider when buying plus size furniture


Comfort is paramount. It should come above everything else.

Obviously, padding and cushioning make all heavy duty dining chairs comfortable. Something else you can count on for extra comfort is an armrest and back support.

Size and weight rating

Granted, it’s better to go for heavy duty kitchen chairs with the depth and the breadth to support the biggest man on earth. For instance, we saw that the flash Hercules stacking Chiavari chair can take in a massive 1000lbs!

Ease of assembly

Avoid kitchen chairs for heavy people with poorly written instructions or with missing installation hardware.  Imagine having to call some fancy engineer each time you need to disassemble your chair?


If it can be versatile enough to be used in your office, kitchen and also in the living room, why not?


The décor is important. Getting one of the adorable chairs for heavy guys could be nice for your room as it certainly uplifts the mood in the room and of course makes guys to feel warm and appreciated.


Price and lightness can also contribute to making it one of the better plus size dining chairs to have, holding all factors constant.

I hope the post helps you find the best plus size furniture for all your needs.
