Clean Your Chair Regularly - Spills and stains are bound to happen as well as unpleasant order, which is why it is important to be proactive in cleaning your office chair regularly. A good upholstery cleaner will do the trick and keep your chair looking new for years. Keep your upholstery cleaner and a clean rag in a convenient location in case a spill happens. As soon as something is spilled, quickly use your upholstery cleaner blotting the stain with a clean rag before the stain has time to spread and set in the fabric. It is also possible to make your own fabric cleaner with warm water and a little detergent. Be careful to clean gently in order to avoid ruining or damaging the fabric. If you are accident prone, there is also the option to opt for a vinyl or leather office chair which would be much simpler to clean.
After you determine the ideal height for the backrest of your chair, your next concern is making sure your thighs will fit properly on the seat. The average seat depth on any given office chair is typically about 19 inches deep, however, if you are taller most likely this means you have longer legs. Longer legs requires a longer seat to ensure that your thighs will fit properly across the entire length of the seat without a lot of extra room between the back of your knees and the edge of the seat. Some high end chair manufacturers such as ErgoCentric Seating have a special upgrade option that allows the user to choose a longer seat of 21 inches deep. Another great way to solve the problem of having a seat that is too short is to look for chairs that have a seat slider option. A seat slider allows the user to adjust the depth of the chair by pulling up on a lever generally located underneath the front of the seat. When this lever is pulled up, you can then bring the chair forward or back to make the seat either longer or shorter depending on your needs.
When buying a leather chair for your living room, it’s important to understand that not all leathers are exactly the same. There is a big difference, both in look and feel, between a chair crafted from rugged, rustic cow leather and one made from soft, supple dyed leather. Basically, the leather style you choose will be mostly based on your personal preferences, as well as the look you are trying to create in the room. Although natural brown leather has a very authentic look, you might find that you prefer one of the brighter dyed shades. It’s also important to remember that leather is one material that gets better with time. It will get just a bit softer and more comfortable each time you sit in it, adding to the chair’s comfort and good looks. Leather is also a material that can be cleaned when necessary, which will help to contribute to the longevity of the chair.
Do Not Lean Too Far Forward or Too Far Back - Be wary to not lean too far back in your chair so that the wheels or legs lift up from the floor. Leaning too far back can cause the chair to give from under you and cause structural damage, or loosen key components that can cause the chair to break or fall apart. Not only that, but you can hurt yourself as well! On the contrary, you also need to make sure not to lean too far forward by putting all your weight on the front of your chair. The chair can tip over leading to your chair getting damaged or even worse you getting hurt by falling onto your desk.
Shopping for bosses may seem difficult at first, but not if you go this route. Getting a nice executive chair for your boss is a great way to earn brownie points at the office and show your boss they’re appreciated at the same time. Chairs from this style, like the 811-LX Avenger Chair by OFM, often feature soft leather upholsteries to encase plush comfort. The best part is that these chairs likely won’t cost you any more than other great boss gifts, such as a gift certificate to a fancy restaurant for two, or a popular sporting event. Most great executive chairs offer amazing design and comfort for less than $200.
