Toni Sweet. Chairs. August 28th , 2017.
Sitting in an office chair with arms, arguably, is the norm and preferred form of seating in most workplaces across the world. Ask any of your coworkers or friends if they would prefer a chair with armrests and the great majority of them would probably answer yes. While you may find many people prefer to sit in a chair with armrests, there is also a great number of people who would choose sitting in an armless chair instead. Armless office chairs possess quite a few benefits that office chairs with arms do not offer which makes them a great alternative for your office seating.
Before you go out and purchase a chair, you must decide on a style, color palate, size and where you will place it. A tiny chair in a huge space can seem lost. Massive chairs in an already overcrowded room will just add to the feeling of clutter.
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.
Recliners these days can have all kinds of options installed. Heat, massage, rockers, swivel. . . even mini-fridges if you want to get real fancy! Just remember that the more options you have, the more there is to go wrong. Sometimes sticking with a timeless style will suit you better than having the newest thing the chair engineers can come up with.
Because they are sold at a cheaper price, people often assume that used chairs will not function to the same ability that a brand new chair would. The truth is, most will function just as efficiently and effective as a new chair. If the chair has been lightly used, the chair will most likely last as long as it is warranted for, which varies between different chair manufacturers. If purchasing a used chair from an internet retailer, again, if you have an apprehensions ask if the chair has any problems in functionality or design. Most internet retailers will not sell a chair as used unless it is in almost brand new condition; chairs that are defective or have problems are typically sent back to the original manufacturer for them to dispose of or take parts from, making purchasing online a much more reliable option. Brick and mortar stores may not fully examine a product for defects and will immediately put it back on their showroom floor after a return without prior inspection.
