The office chair can be one of the most ignored pieces of office furniture, while also being the most important. You may not think much about purchasing a new office chair, but you have to consider how much time you will spend sitting. If you choose the first office chair you come across, you could be left feeling uncomfortable throughout the work day, which can lead to harm in your health and a decrease in productivity within the workplace.
So how should you go about choosing your office chair?
You must first consider what kind of support you need from your office chair. While tall people tend to look for support higher up their back near their shoulders, shorter individuals tend to want more support for their lower back and lumbar support. Consider your height and size before making a decision about your chair. Sit in multiple options to determine which chair feels the most comfortable.
Your office chair should also have the ability to be adjusted. This means that you should be able to change the height of the chair itself, the height of your arm rests, and how far the back of your chair can recline. These subtle movements can make the all of the difference while sitting through an eight hour work day. You also want to make sure your office chair provides you with the option to move. If you work on hardwood floors, the wheels of your chair should allow you to move around easily.
