What to Look for in a Home Office Chair?
When buying a home office chair online, you will need to rely on the pictures and descriptions to give you the details you need to decide. Finding the right criteria to look for will make it easier to decipher whether this product is the best option for your needs.
The right home office chair in NZ needs to be comfortable and good at preventing muscle strain – after all, when working from home you are going to spend a lot of time seated, maintaining healthy posture can prevent a multitude of back, neck and joint problems.
There are several types of chairs that could be used as a home office chair in NZ:
Executive office chairs
Leather office chairs
Mesh office chairs
Balance ball chairs
Whichever type of chair you choose, it is the details that will be important to ensure that you are comfortable while you work.
A great home office chair in NZ needs to be completely height adjustable and have a seat depth that is suitable for you. It needs to offer the right level of support for your legs if you are tall, and not so deep if you are short. The seat needs to offer adequate cushioning, but not so much that lateral movement is difficult – if you sink into it too much, you will struggle to change position easily.
The backrest should offer firm support for the lower and middle parts of the back. It needs to be high enough to provide complete support from behind, and an adjustable backrest can allow you to choose the way it supports – and even provide the option to recline so you are not in the same position all day.
If you choose to buy a home office chair in NZ that has armrests, ensure that they too are adjustable. Not only so that you can get close enough to the desk to work comfortably, but also so that they can be set further back or further forward to suit your comfort.
In terms of construction, there is no ‘ideal’ material – this is more personal choice. However, it is important that the chair is strong, and on a firm base of at 5 castors. This base allows for the chair to move around freely but check to see if the castors are suitable for your flooring. Some work better on hard floors, where others are more suitable for carpet.
Choosing the right home office chair in NZ will have a huge impact on your comfort and long-term health while working remotely – so trust Hurdleys to help choose the best one for you.
