The Home Office Chair buying guide

The Home Office Chair buying guide

Whatever your situation at home - it is vital that you have an ergonomic chair which enables you to work well at your desk at home.

 What should an office chair have?

 Your chair needs to be:

  • Adjustable in height – to ensure you can get up and down easily, sit at a comfortable height to work, and helps to make sure you don’t get back or neck pain.
  • Adjustable tilt - is very useful as this can help to ensure your pelvis is in the correct position.

What type of chair is best for office work?

Depending on how many hours you sit at your desk – there are different chairs to suit differing needs. The most basic and cheapest type of office chair is the Operator office chairs.  The ERGO range is ideal for this purpose. With a recommended time of no more than 5 hours a day this is suited to lighter use. 

For a standard office chair - the  ERGO TRIO is an excellent choice. As an ergonomic high back operator chair, it is a great quality item for the home office.

What is the best office chair for sitting long hours?

  • Heavy Duty chairs with larger seat areas and more upholstery are definitely a good choice if you are sitting for long hours.
