Buyer's Guide: Which office chair is best for you?

Dec. 18, 2021 | 06:26:35

Choosing an office chair may seem like a simple task, but when you really consider it, you will find that many factors can influence your decision.

From the average amount of time you spend sitting down each day to the climate in your country/region, these variables can and should influence your decision when selecting a new office chair. Many of us don't pay attention to the way we sit in our office chairs, which can ruin our posture.

However, instead of a brief overview of office chairs in general, I will take the time to look closely at all the different types of chairs to help you make a more informed decision.


Mesh office chairs

Mesh office chairs are often a great choice for offices located in hot climates or generally hot offices. Mesh materials with ventilation holes allow air to flow freely, keeping you cooler during the day.

Mesh chairs tend to be very light. Therefore, if you need to move your chair multiple times a day, mesh chairs can help with this situation.

Leather Office Chairs

Leather office chairs immediately exude style and comfort from the get-go. Although comfortable, not all leather office chairs can be used for long periods of time.

Often, leather office chairs can be very expensive, but cheaper leather products do exist.

Ideally, leather chairs should be used in a cool environment. Sitting in a hot environment, the leather can become sticky and make the user sweat more than usual.

If you are making a statement and sitting in a cool environment, a leather office chair may be your best choice.

Task/Operator Chair

Task/Operator office chairs are considered to be the most basic type of office chair. With this label, they also tend to be the cheapest.

They do the simple job of providing a seat, and the extra benefits, such as adjustable lumbar support and headrest, tend to bypass the design phase.

If you are not looking for your chair to meet the requirements of a specific job, rather than a place to park yourself for an hour or two, then a task chair may be your best option. However, if you are a person who sits for long periods of time during the day, something more robust may be required.


Kneeling chairs

As you probably know, sitting all day is not the healthiest thing for us to do. Our bodies are not designed to sit for long periods of time, day in and day out. Unfortunately, for many modern workers, it is nearly impossible to get away from this.

For those who are concerned about back pain, or if you already have back pain, a kneeling chair may be a solution that can reduce the stress you put on your body.

A kneeling chair can help you rethink your posture and even encourage you to sit in a healthy way. The main purpose of a kneeling chair is to reduce the pressure on the lower back by distributing our weight between the knees and hips.


Ergonomic office chairs

Arguably the most popular type of chair in the office environment. Ergonomic office chairs offer a variety of benefits that often far outweigh the drawbacks (the drawbacks are cost related).

Cheap ergonomic office chairs do exist, but when the price point reflects their function, this type of chair really starts to excel. First, ergonomic chairs are designed for the user. A variety of adjustable features such as lumbar, seat, backrest, armrests, headrest and height meet the needs of the user. The combination of all these features can help prevent the occurrence of repetitive strain injuries, which are common among office workers.

Ergonomic chairs are built to last. With a sturdy design and adjustable features, it's easy to sit in an ergonomic chair for long periods of time. For those who spend their days at a desk (for most people), ergonomic chairs seem simple. Most importantly, ergonomic chairs come in all shapes, sizes and materials. From leather to mesh and fabric, ergonomic chairs are available to meet the needs of a large audience.

Heavy duty office chairs

Heavy duty office chairs are undoubtedly the largest and most sturdy type of chair on the market. They are specifically designed to cater to the larger users who need it the most.

They have larger seats and backs than regular seats and backs, and this should be the preferred type of chair if you want that bulkier chair.

They have also been specifically tested to withstand heavier weights with stronger materials and stronger gas struts, so there is no need to worry about the mechanism bending under pressure. Although it is highly recommended that you check the model specifications before you buy.

Designer Office Chairs

As you might imagine, designer office chairs look good. If you want something different to provide that "wow" factor, designer chairs are perfect for this requirement.

While their design is particularly distinctive, they do offer a lot of options in terms of comfort and support. Designer office chairs are not limited by material choice or size. They tend to mix and match with other types of office chairs while looking very stylish.


High Back Office Chairs

High-back office chairs are designed for taller people. Sitting in a chair for long periods of time without proper back and neck support can be very uncomfortable, so it is important to get the right office chair for your body type.

All of our high-back office chairs are ergonomically designed to provide the support you need throughout your workday.

High-back office chairs come in a variety of styles, colors and features, making it easy to find the right chair for you.

Choose from a variety of colors in mesh fabric, leather or fabric. Many of our high-back office chairs also feature a headrest that adjusts independently of the backrest for a perfect fit.


Gaming Chairs

Designed with style and comfort in mind, gaming chairs often have ergonomic features to help you through long gaming sessions.

Gaming chairs are modeled after the bucket seats of racing chairs and have a very distinctive look. The shape allows you to lean into them, and thanks to their high backs, your entire back, neck and head are supported.

While they are marketed towards gamers, if you really like the look of these chairs, they can easily do the job of a more traditional office chair.

Ergonomic stools

Ergonomic stools are a great alternative to more traditional office chairs. They are a great way to take a quick break from long hours of sitting.

Ergonomic stools can help improve your productivity, increase work efficiency, and even exercise your core muscles.

Perfectly paired with a standing desk, ergonomic stools allow the thighs to slope downward, putting the pelvis and lower back in a neutral position, which puts the spine in its natural curve.


I hope I can help you make a more informed purchase decision on your next office chair.
