Let's get into what benefits a good office chair can give you:

  • Provides lumbar and pelvic support, taking the strain off your muscles.
  • Prevents headaches, exhaustion, and slouching.
  • Aids comfort, concentration, and the ability to work effectively.
  • Increased productivity and the strength to work those long days.

Before You Take a Seat: Factors to Think About When Buying an Office Chair

An office chair is an essential piece of furniture in any workspace. However, choosing the right one for you can take time and effort. Factors such as comfort, adjustability, style, and price can all make a difference to your overall satisfaction with your purchase. 

Let's take a look at how to choose the right chair for you:

  • Size and Comfort

    Office chairs must have the correct seat, backrest, and armrest dimensions to ensure maximum productivity and comfort for long periods.

  • Material and Durability

    A good office chair is made with high-quality materials that ensure its durability and longevity.

  • Adjustable Height and Seat Slide

    When looking for an office chair that offers ultimate comfort, you need to consider whether an adjustable height and seat slide are important features for you. These features allow you to customise your chair according to your body, preventing discomfort and fatigue.

  • Supportive Backrests and Armrests

    Having a supportive backrest and armrests is a key factor in maintaining good posture and reducing pain and discomfort in the neck, shoulders, and lower back. Feel free to come down to our Huddersfield furniture showroom to try which chair provides the support you need.

FAQs: All About Office Chairs

Are office chairs good for your back?

Yes, office chairs can be good for your back when they are ergonomically designed and properly adjusted. Our office chairs are designed with comfort and style in mind, but if you're looking for that extra bit of support - our ergonomic office chairs are perfect for the job. 

Thanks to their smart design, an ergonomic office chair can promote a healthy sitting posture, reducing the risk of back pain and related discomfort.

When used correctly, an office chair with proper ergonomic features can help to distribute your body weight evenly, reducing the pressure on specific areas of the back and minimising strain on the spine. It can also promote good blood circulation and decrease the likelihood of muscle stiffness and tension.

You should take small 5-minute breaks every so often to walk around and stretch your legs - this can make you feel energised and reduce lethargy.

Are ergonomic chairs better than office chairs?

Depending on your needs, an ergonomic chair is a type of office chair specifically designed to prioritise comfort, support, and proper body alignment during prolonged sitting. While all ergonomic chairs are office chairs, not all office chairs are necessarily ergonomic. At Order Office Furniture, we have the best of both worlds.

The main difference between ergonomic chairs and standard office chairs lies in their design and features. Ergonomic chairs are engineered with various adjustable components, such as seat height, backrest angle, lumbar support, armrest height, and seat depth, which can be customised to fit your body and preferences. These adjustments allow for better alignment of the spine, reduced strain on muscles and joints, and improved overall comfort.

Is it better to have your office chair lower or higher?

The optimal height for your office chair depends on your height, desk height, and personal comfort preferences. However, having your office chair set at a height that allows for proper alignment and support of your body while sitting is generally recommended.

What does this mean? Your feet should be flat on the floor or supported by a footrest. Your knees should be at a 90-degree angle, or slightly greater, with your thighs parallel to the floor. This position helps promote good circulation and reduces pressure on your lower back and legs.

If your office chair is too low, it can cause your knees to be higher than your hips, leading to discomfort and increased pressure on the thighs. Whereas, if your chair is too high, it can cause your feet to dangle or your knees to be lower than your hips, which can strain your lower back.
