It’s time to do away with your office chair if your back is screaming, “Ouch!”. Because you spend so much time sitting down at your computer, you deserve ergonomic office furniture. You work hard, and because of this, your office furniture should be undeniably comfortable. The perfect office furniture is stylish and yet functional, enhancing your productivity. It’s incredibly hard to work when this is not the case. Lackluster office design hinders motivation and creativity. At the same time, office furniture that’s not ergonomic can cause strain on the body. Is your office chair stylish and ergonomic? If not, it’s time for a replacement. Here are some telltale indicators that you need a new office chair.
Damaged Office Chair Parts
This sign is the most evident. If any part of your chair has broken, replacement should be soon. Of course, if your chair has fallen completely apart, please replace it quickly. However, you should pay attention to minor damage as well. We recommend that you look for loose or stuck wheels. Also, check to see if you can still adjust your office chair.
A Seat Cushion That’s No Longer, Well, Cushiony
Does your seat cushion seem flat? As your office chair ages, its seat cushion’s foam begins to flatten and compress. The seat cushion plays a vital role because it helps to prevent back and body pain. When it compresses, there is less support. Show your body a lot of love by purchasing a new chair. Mark Downs has plenty of stylish, comfortable, and affordable options.
The Wrong Fit
This sign makes more sense outside of a home office. In a home office, you can customize your office space. However, if you’re not working remotely, you may find that the office furniture at your job was never the right fit for you in the first place. Are the armrests too far apart? Are you not able to adjust the backrests to align with your height? You should talk to your boss about this, especially if these obstacles make working challenging?
A Drab Office Chair
Because you spend a large percentage of your life working, you deserve to work in style. When you sit in a sleek and well-designed office chair, and you like the way your office looks, it makes you feel proud and accomplished (believe it or not). There is a lot of science behind how office design affects productivity and mood. You’d be surprised what adding pops of color to your office space can do!
