When choosing an office chair, you’ll want to choose something that provides comfort, support and style. Wheeled feet and 360 rotation are great features to look for, which allow you to move your office chair around more easily and help reduce strain on your spine and neck. The fabric you choose is important too - would you prefer tactile velvet or fabric, or the luxe feel of leather or leather-look?
Since you’ll sit in your office chair almost every day for hours on end, it’s a good idea to invest in something that will provide comfort and lasting quality. A good rule of thumb is to spend between £100 and £250, although you could easily spend more if you’re after ultimate luxury or added features.
There are a lot of similarities between a gaming chair and an office chair - but definitely a few differences too. Gaming chairs tend to have a higher, solid back, usually with a headrest, and are often designed with a more sports-inspired or futuristic twist, sometimes with features like LED lights or built-in speakers. There are also other styles of gaming chairs that are closer to the floor, like rocker chairs. Office chairs, on the other hand, tend to have a more subdued and classic style, no headrest, are available with mesh or lower backs for better airflow, and either offer better ergonomic support or are more in keeping with the rest of your decor.
On average, a computer or office chair should last around 5-10 years before needing a replacement - although, this of course depends on the quality of build, fabrics used, and how often you use it. If you’re starting to experience back pain after using your current office chair, find the seat uncomfortable, or the armrests, back or wheels are broken - it’s a good idea to replace yours with a new model.
