There are a large variety of desk chairs out there in all different colors, sizes, upholstery options, and adjustments; but how do you know which one will work best for your office space? A good desk chair, whether it is for your desk at your work office or home office, will provide you with enough support to keep you comfortable throughout your sitting duration. With good support comes less back, neck, and muscle pain that can occur from poorly designed office chairs. While some desk chairs are specifically designed to eliminate pre-existing health issues such as lower back pain, other desk chairs are made to match other office furniture. For example if you have a desk in a mahogany finish, some may want to find a wooden desk chair with a mahogany finished frame to match their desk. Whether you spend much of your day sitting in your desk chair or if your desk chair is more for show, there are certain guidelines that should be followed when choosing a desk chair.
First and foremost, you will need to determine the type of desk chair you need. There are numerous desk chairs out there ranging from high back, ergonomic, mid back, wood, and more; making it important for you to know how much time you will be spending in your desk chair. If you will be spending the majority of the day sitting in your office chair, a high back desk chair might be a good choice for you since higher backrests support the spine which in turn reduces neck and upper back strain. If you have pre-existing health problems such as lower back pain, it might be best for you to choose an ergonomic desk chair that will allow you to make the necessary adjustments to meet your needs. If you do not spend most of your day sitting in your desk chair and do not experience pain from standard task chairs, a mid back chair would suite you just fine. If your desk chair is really more for show and you will be spending minimal time sitting in it, perhaps look for a wooden desk chair to match your furniture in your office or try looking for a modern chair. There are many modern office chairs that look great and fit in nicely to almost any office space, however, be aware that most modern chairs lack the support some people need.
Once you have determined the type of desk chair you need, you will then want to look at the features you will want included in your chair, including the option of casters or glides. Most desk chairs come standard with rolling casters which allow you to move quickly and efficiently from one spot to another. Desk chairs that have glides are stationary, meaning they do not move unless you pick the chair up yourself. A desk chair with glides would be ideal for extended height applications where your work station is higher than a typical desk and you need a steady chair to work on your projects. Many architects, artists, painters, and lab personnel opt for this style of seating as their work requires them to sit still. Some desk chairs also come with the option of having pressure breaking casters, which lock to prevent movement while you work whenever pressure is exerted on the wheels.
Another important option that must be taken into account when choosing a desk chair is making sure to select a chair that will fit properly underneath your desk. This will require knowing the dimensions of the chair you are interested in which is typically displayed under the product descriptions on most office chair retailer’s websites. You should also know the height of your desk and how much clearance is needed for you to be sitting comfortably underneath your desk. You should be able to sit comfortably with your feet firmly planted on the floor with knees bent at a 90 degree angle. If you need an extended height desk chair, choose a desk chair that has a foot ring. If you are of shorter stature, search for a petite chair that will allow you to have your feet firmly planted on the floor otherwise you may find that you are not able to place your feet on the floor. The same goes for taller users; be sure to look for a big and tall chair that are specifically constructed for people over 6 feet tall and generally have higher weight ratings as well.
The last key option you will want to take into consideration when choosing your desk chair is the type of armrest you will want. If your desk height is lower than a standard desk and you are not going to have a lot of clearance from the desk to the top of your thighs, consider getting a chair without arms. Armrests are not always necessary features to have, especially if you spend most of your time typing. You may also opt for an armless chair if you have a keyboard tray installed underneath your desk which will add even less room to move around. If you have a standard height desk, it is always safe to get adjustable height armrests as an assurance that they will fit properly under your desk. If you use your armrests often, look for a chair that has upholstered or padded armrests, which are cushioned and more comfortable. If you only want to use your armrests from time to time, look for a chair that has swing away arms which allows you to essentially swing the arms away when not in use.
The last step to take in choosing a desk chair is determining the type of upholstery you would like to have. Personal preferences will vary between individuals, some opt for leather because it has more of a prestigious look to it while others may opt for mesh to keep cool all throughout the year. This decision is ultimately up to you and what you think will be most comfortable for your desk. Some chairs even come in a combination of different upholsteries if you find it difficult to select only one. If you want to match the desk chair to a certain room, choose a color that matches the room.
Ever find yourself realizing you need something at the last minute? Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us including myself but sometimes if you realize it too late it is no longer possible to get. If this doesn’t apply to you, surely you’ve been
asked to meet an important deadline that seems almost impossible to meet. In the world of office chairs if you are given a strict deadline or need chairs delivered right away, it is almost impossible to make that happen. Some chairs are created from scratch and require long lead times to put together, while other manufacturers are just faced with too many orders to get them out in the same day let alone the same week.
Fear not though, because Sitbetter.com has recently added a whole category of diverse chairs (from big and tall chairs to reception chairs) that will ship the same day if ordered before 1 p.m. PST (that gives you East Coasters almost until the end of the work day to get your order in!). If you are faced with a big deadline or need your chairs right away, then look no further than Sitbetter for your same day shipping needs (while supplies last). The best part of all is these chairs are cheaper than normal because they are stocked in our warehouse in sunny San Diego, California so you are getting the best deal out there!

Now…. since I mentioned what ergonomic chairs are not, today I thought I’d try to say what they are!
Firstly, they almost always have multiple adjustments, chair height, back height, seat depth, back to seat angle, arms adjustable, etc. etc. etc….. in other words, a good ergonomic chair is going to adjust to your body, not force the body to adjust to you!
Take the chair I pictured above, not only does it do all the above, the individual sections of the back can adjust independently, making the Verte chair a unique and special (and VERY comfortable) ergonomic chair!
So again, don’t take a sales guy’s word on what’s an ergonomic chair, but look at the quality, the adjustability and other factors before choosing the chair that’s right for you!
I reviewed this chair yesterday…. funny thing is, I was looking around the web and actually discovered there were sites offering this chair as an ‘ergonomic chair’! How absolutely ridiculous!
Now, granted, there are a ton of definitions of ‘ergonomics’ out there, ask 10 people what the term represents and you’ll get 15 definitions! My own personal definition is: adapting your space to your body, not adapting your body to your space.
I’m going to venture, this particular chair above, while being very comfortable for shorter periods of time, is NOT an ergonomic chair! Look, the best this chair does is rotate, go up and down and lean back. Very nice for a conference chair, but not very good for working long hours in front of the computer!
An ergonomic chair, just briefly (I’ll get into the whole aspect of what you want out of one soon enough), is going to have things like adjustable arms, the back will adjust in multiple ways, in other words, that chair is going to adjust to your body, not force you into an awkward, uncomfortable and unhealthy situation.
My whole point here is that you shouldn’t automatically believe a chair is ergonomic simply because someone selling it says it is. Check out the chair, heck, check out the business selling it- do they really know what they’re talking about or just trying to sell you something, anything.

e B7406! This is a chair which is comfortable, durable and has a great price!
When I first sat in it, I was amazed, it has the feel of another chair which costs hundreds more. There is a bit of a underhang right under the lumbar support, so you really get the benefit of a soft and comfortable support right at the lumbar region. The padding is soft and comfortable, the covering is actually called CaresSoft, but you’ll find it difficult to tell the difference between it and leather. The style is contemporary, yet fits in well with a good number of decors, so it will basically fit in just about anywhere!
If you’re considering a purchase of a number of chairs for the conference room, or only one for your home office, this really is a great, inexpensive choice!
