Chair Buying Guide: The Best Chair For Work Or Your Home Office

Buying an office chair is an important investment and needs some careful consideration. It's not quite as simple as finding a chair that looks good, it's also important to find a chair that works for you as well. Let us help you find the best chair for work or the best home office chair.

Why is it so important to choose the right chair when working?

Before you decide which chair is best, we need to understand why it’s so important to choose the right chair for you. Did you know that the chair you choose can affect your:

Health

Most office workers spend over 40 hours a week sitting down.  If the office chair is not supportive of joints and muscles this can lead to posture related injuries.

Productivity

If you find yourself sat in an uncomfortable chair you will inevitably find that your productivity slips as a result!

Types of Office Chair

To support your health and your productivity you need to consider which type of chair is going to be best for you. There are several types of office chair for work, including:


Executive Chair

Premium, professional and high backed,  executive chairs offer comfort and support.

Swivel Computer Chair (Also known as Operator)

A traditional desk chair designed to be specifically paired with smaller computer desks.

Fixed Chair

Stationary and non-adjustable fixed chairs are often ideal as meeting room or low use chairs.

Kneeling Chair/Stool

This range promotes movement as there is no back support, great for strengthening core muscles as you work.

Ergonomic Chair


Perhaps the most important aspect when it comes to choosing the right office chair is adjustabilty. Ensuring that you can adjust the chair to match your individual body shape.

Choose the ergonomic features that allow the right kind of movement to enable you to easily find the optimum working position for your body!  This will help to protect your joints and make sitting and working as comfortable as possible.

Ergonomic Features

No matter which type of office chair you think would be best for you, you should consider their ergonomic features. Each chair will have different ones, including:

Backrest Tilt

This mechanism changes the angle of the backrest relative to the seat, taking some of the weight off your upper body and reducing pressure on your back.

Lumbar Support

Promotes good posture by supporting the lower portion of the spine.

Armrests

Relieve stress on shoulders and the neck by helping to maintain a good posture - ideal for those who suffer with shoulder or neck pain.

Adjustable Seat

Adjust your chair so that your feet are on the floor and you are at the correct working height for your desk

Adjustable Height

Increase blood flow by adjusting the height of the seat to ensure knees are at a 90 degree angle.

Headrests

What Chair is right for me?


When choosing the best chair for work, you also want to consider your work style and environment in which you work. Consider things like:

Time Spent Sitting

From a couple of hours catching up on emails to over 8 hours working with limited breaks - the amount of time that you spend working is important when deciding on the right office chair.  Don't forget to check out the weight capacity that would be suitable for your body type as well in the products description.
