Office Desk Chairs

By: Kent Pinkerton

The most important aspect of your office is the office chair - it should not just be comfortable: it should be designed to allow you to work long hours without developing back aches.

When seated, the height of the chair should be such that your feet can rest comfortably on the floor. Your thighs should be parallel to the floor and your body angled between 90-105 degrees. The chair should offer your back good support and for this you should consider an ergonomically designed chair.

Choose a chair in which you can adjust the seat height. The seat should have enough depth and width to support even a larger sized user. The forward or backward tilt of the seat and back rest should be adjustable. The chair must be made of easy to maintain material with comfortable padding. The fabric should breath and the color must not run onto clothes. If the chair has an armrest it should be adjustable and allow the arms to be placed comfortably and shoulders positioned in a normal stance. The elbows and lower arm should rest lightly. If you choose a swivel chair then it must have high quality mechanicals so that you can reach different areas of the desk without straining and move around without the wheels getting stuck.

Check out the different designs and options. Try and match the chair and desk. If you have an antique desk you must choose an antique style chair. Similarly, glass furniture must have a chair that enhances the design and beauty of glass. Check out the choices, compare prices, ask about warranties, and choose a chair that will serve you well through the years.

Comfort is the golden key. If you do have any health problems then choose a chair after consulting your doctor or physiotherapist. There are specially designed chairs for people with back problems, frozen shoulders, or spinal injuries.
