Office Chairs - How to Choose the Right Chair for your Office

Posted by Office Furniture on February 25th, 2019

Choosing the right office chair can be a daunting task- there are so many different office chairs out there. On average, office workers spend around 7 hours per day in their chairs, so they need to be right for us. No one can make the decision for you, it is completely down to individual preference and what feels best for you. So, how DO we choose the right chair and what options are out there?

Good Posture is Key

As most office workers spend a great amount of time sitting down, it is essential that we choose a chair that supports our back and protects our posture. Choosing the wrong type of chair could lead to you sitting in a bad position. Therefore, this could damage your spine and your back, thus causing pain and discomfort.

Back pain is a problem that affects hundreds of thousands of office workers all over the world. Sitting in the wrong position could result in back pain or make it worse it if you already suffer from it. You should choose a chair that allows you to keep an upright position. If you feel yourself slouching (where your spine curves into a C position) then you are using the wrong chair for you. 

One Size Certainly Doesn't Fit All

A common mistake that people make is assuming that because a chair is popular amongst office workers, that it'll be a good choice for them. This is definitely not the case. Everyone is different and unique and just because a chair works for one person, doesn't mean that it will work for all. It is important to try a chair before you buy it. This will give you the opportunity to ensure that it is comfortable, supportive and suits your needs.   

Adjustable vs Non Adjustable

What are the most important features to look out for in a chair? What office chairs will support our backs and ensure that we are comfortable? A key thing to look for is an office chair that can be adjusted. There are many options that come with one adjustable part, but you should look for a chair that can be adjusted in several places. This includes the height, the back and the arms. This will enable you to position the chair in a way that is right for you.

The most important things to remember when choosing an office chair is that it is supportive, comfortable and adjustable. This will ensure that you have many happy and pleasant days sitting in your new office chair.
