A Guide To Choosing A Comfortable Office Chair

A Guide To Choosing A Comfortable Office Chair


Anyone with a 9-5 job will vouch for comfortable office chairs. Unless you have a job that requires you to travel or move around much, you’ll probably be sitting in your chair for 8 hours. And owing to today’s sedentary lifestyle, advising you to walk around every 5 minutes is a waste of breathe. So here’s the next best thing, invest in a high-end office chair. The chair will at least correct your posture and reduce physical discomfort to some extent.

While choosing an office chair, you need to make a checklist; the chair should check everything off of the list. The first thing is mobility and arm rests. Since it’s an accessory for your office, look for something with wheels so you can shuffle about with ease. Arm rests too are vital to provide support for when you’re either reading something or signing some document. You don’t want your arm dangling while perusing a vital document. The arm rests should preferably have some padding to avoid any discomfort to your elbows.

The next thing to check off your list is lumbar support. The high end office chairs must provide you with good lumbar support. The chair should be curved inwardly to match the curvature of the spinal cord, to help the back bend naturally and at the same time provide enough support for the back. The material of the chair follows suit. A hard chair would be might uncomfortable to sit in for 8 hours for the better part of your life. Avoid leather as well; it’ll stick to your body and make you sweat. Chose a chair that is made from light material- your skin should be able to breathe.

Although most chairs come with adjustable heights, make sure that the height at which you’re comfortable can be achieved when you sit in the chair. Your legs should not be hanging in the air. Only when your legs are firmly placed on the ground, you know that are sitting at the correct height. The high end office chairs come with hydraulic adjustments.

These are just general requirements that one should look for while shopping for an office chair. If you have any more requirements, you could definitely add them to your list!
