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.
Often times while you are working you may find your chair’s armrests get in the way. Whether you are sitting down in your chair or standing up to take a break, arm rests always tend to get in the way. If your workstation is ergonomically set up to have a keyboard tray installed underneath your desk, having a chair with armrests can be even more troublesome in trying to find a way to fit them beneath both your desk and your keyboard tray. Having armrests on a chair will also defeat the ergonomic benefits of using a keyboard tray because it will make you type in an unnatural position leading to strain on your wrists. Sliding into an armless chair is effortless, and getting in and out of your chair will no longer seem like a chore. Reaching for things near or on your desk will also be much simpler without arms being in the way.
While you can use any other chair for computer work, true ergonomic computer chairs only allow its user to work with a PC while sitting on it. It is characterized with heightened legs and a lounge style seat. Sitting on this kind of position promotes eye level alignment between you and the computer monitor. If you see a true ergonomic computer chair, you may note that it has a futuristic look. It is also not commonly used around offices but are rather common in gaming rooms.
A modern-day alternative to the traditional folding wooden chair is metal folding chairs. They can be a great addition to any home or garden and can be color coordinated with the rest of your home. Also used as the perfect addition to your office, sleek metal chairs will look classy whilst saving space in the work place.
Accent chairs must also fit the mood of the room. When it comes to design, the choices can be overwhelming. You can either stick to period pieces that all go together seamlessly or you can combine styles to add some contrast and interest. A contemporary chair that is not too over-the-top and upholstered in cream, black or brown leather or fabric can complement more traditional furnishings. An armless chair that is close to the floor and has no visible wood or metal details would go well in any living room setting. Accent armless chairs are favorites of kids and pets. Getting into and out of the chair is very easy.
