Purchasing a used office chair is much more affordable than purchasing a brand new chair. Because the chair has been previously used by another customer, office furniture dealers are able to provide a chair that once could have cost $500 brand new for a highly discounted price. This is beneficial to any business or home customer that is looking to save money while providing their employees or themselves with a comfortable chair to sit in. When looking for a used chair, be certain to fully understand the pricing. If a chair appears to be significantly lower in price than its original cost, ask a sales representative why there is such a large discrepancy in price. Do not be afraid to ask the same questions that you would normally ask when purchasing a new item, you will want to be certain that the product you are purchasing, although used, will last you for years to come. Many used office chairs also do not come with their original warranties, making it even more important to fully understand why the chair is considered to be used.
Carefully check and inspect the materials used for the chair. Mesh is quite popular today for the standard chairs while leather remains the top choice for executive office chairs. The kind of chair you buy depends on how you are going to use it but always make sure you have the information on the materials used, how durable the wheels and other bearings are, and ask how much the warranty covers.
As is the case with any chair, you’ll want to look for a leather chair that provides you with good back support. Ideally, you should try sitting in the chair before your purchase it, making sure it fits your body comfortably and provides good support. Of course, this can be difficult to do if you plan to purchase your chair online. If this is the case, it can be worth your effort to look for the same chair model in a local store, even if you plan to make your actual purchase online. When choosing a leather chair for the living room, many people also like to purchase a matching ottoman. By purchasing an ottoman along with the chair, you’ll be able to make sure the leather finish is a good match.
Your dining table is another key piece of furniture that will determine how many chairs will be able to fit around the table. Be sure to measure your dining table’s length prior to purchasing and then find out the overall width of the chairs to be certain that they will fit around the table. If your current dining chairs already fit comfortably around your dining table, this will be a good indication of how many new chairs you will need to purchase.
The last key option you will want to take into consideration when choosing your desk chair is the type of armrest you will want. If your desk height is lower than a standard desk and you are not going to have a lot of clearance from the desk to the top of your thighs, consider getting a chair without arms. Armrests are not always necessary features to have, especially if you spend most of your time typing. You may also opt for an armless chair if you have a keyboard tray installed underneath your desk which will add even less room to move around. If you have a standard height desk, it is always safe to get adjustable height armrests as an assurance that they will fit properly under your desk. If you use your armrests often, look for a chair that has upholstered or padded armrests, which are cushioned and more comfortable. If you only want to use your armrests from time to time, look for a chair that has swing away arms which allows you to essentially swing the arms away when not in use.
