Adjustable Office Chair

Most office chairs are adjustable in some way. You want an office chair with at least adjustable height and armrests. However, the ideal office chair should be adjustable in five+ ways.

Office chair adjustments can include the following:

  • Height adjustable armrests
  • Height adjustable backrest
  • Adjustable backrest angle
  • Height adjustable seat
  • Adjustable seat angle/tilt
  • Adjustable backrest tension
  • Forward/backward adjustable seat

Ultimately, you need to find an office chair that is adjustable to suit your unique spine to ensure that you are comfortable, and your back is fully supported.

Additionally, your office chair should not require tools to adjust.

Office chair with castors VS office chair without castors

office chair with wheels

If your desk or work surface is quite wide (you can’t reach the edge when sitting in the middle), you need an office chair with castors. An office chair with castors gives you increased mobility in your work space and reduces the strain of stretching to reach things.

If you do decide to get a rolling office chair, make sure the wheelbase is well-built and that it easily glides across the floor.

A chair without castors should only be used as a visitor’s chair. These chairs are not recommended for working at desks.

Office Chair Material

Office chairs are available in a variety of materials, especially when referring to the seat and the backrest. From leather and fabric to mesh and plastic.

Mesh is a popular office chair material, especially when it comes to backrests, due to its breathability. Mesh office chairs are shaped ergonomically and provides support for your back.
