How to pick the right office chairs for your business

Most of us spend eight or more hours a day at in the office and the majority of that time is no doubt spent sitting on chairs, in meetings, at lunch time and at our desks. That makes the task of selecting office chairs an extremely critical process, considering the huge amount of time we spend sitting on them. Not only are chairs an important aspect of the comfort of employees, they can play an important role in the professional appearance and operation of your work space.

Once you begin your search, you’ll discover that there is a dazzling array of options available for office chairs these days. From basic office chairs to specialised task chairs, executive chairs and chairs for training auditoriums and lecture theatres, it’s important to make the correct choice for your business needs.

So, how do you know which are the right office chairs for you? Your decision on which office chairs to select should be based on the two main factors of class and comfort.

The style of office chair you select will depend on the activities of your company and where you intend to place them within the office space. For example, if you are choosing chairs for a lunch room, you will need to ensure that they are made from a material, such as PVC, that can be easily wiped down in case of spills, or, if you are selecting chairs for a multi-use meeting space that needs to accommodate various numbers of people, chairs that are stackable will enable a more economical use of space.

Regardless of style, all office chairs must prioritise the comfort and wellbeing of employees and clients. You should consider chairs that have been designed with Ergonomic principles in mind. All good quality office chairs should include adjustable features that can be modified according to each individual’s needs. Contoured seats and backs, adjustable seat height, tilt and angle are just some of the things you should look for before purchasing your chairs.
