As a frequent computer user, I have come to deeply appreciate a comfortable chair and serene work space. Spending hours, or even a few minutes staring at a computer screen can take a toll on your back, especially if the posture is wrong. After suffering for months, I finally decided to go shopping for a computer chair.
It took me quite a while to get the right chair since I had no guidance. However, I learnt some lessons on what to do when looking for the right chair for my home office. Below are some of the tips I gained during my search.
In every furniture store I visited, the first question I asked was whether I could find a chair that would not hurt my back. However, being a skeptical buyer, I could not take the seller’s word for it. I insisted on trying out every chair suggested. It was important to ascertain that the seat gave me the back support that I deeply craved. In retrospect, that was the best decision. I would so easily have ended up with a seat that was worse than my old one.
It was at the final store I visited that the attendant suggested a reclining chair. I tested a few and eventually settled for one. The attendant assured me that I would not regret buying a recliner. True to his word, I have had the same chair for over a year and my back has not ached once since I got it.
Besides the comfort I get from my recliner, there are a lot more benefits I enjoy. For one, I get to sit in any position I find suitable. Unlike other chairs that only allow an upright position, recliners enable you to tilt the chair as far as you want. These chairs have adjustable lumbar support, a feature that helps in relieving the physical stress that comes with maintaining the same posture for too long.
Additionally, I believe that I am much healthier since I started using a recliner. This chair allows me to change positions as often as I deem fit, which helps in preventing stiff joints. Additionally, reclining chairs prevent blood circulation problems that come about when one maintains a single position for a long time. Poor blood flow can easily result to swollen feet in addition to other more dire health issues. I have noticed that my feet no longer swell since I changed my chair.
Recliners also have the advantage of convenience. You can get a reclining chair with wheels to ease your movement. If you need to move away from your desk, all you have to do is slide your chair without having to stand up. This feature is also appropriate in shared offices as it reduces the noise one makes while dragging a chair.
When looking for a reclining chair, it is important to consider its potential flaws. These chairs may fail to recline if there is a problem with the lever. If you notice such a problem, you should get someone to fix it before it affects your back.
The only computer chair that can serve you better than a reclining seat is an ergonomic recliner. These chairs offer more benefits in addition to those of an ordinary recliner. Ergonomic seats are specifically created to meet the health and comfort needs of the office worker who spends hours seated. Consequently, ergonomic chairs have additional support features compared to ordinary recliners. For instance, some ergonomic recliners include massage and heat options.
Despite my satisfaction with my current computer chair, I would love to own an ergonomic recliner for my home office. With a seat like this, I would not have to move to a couch once I am done using my computer. Imagine being able to relax on the same piece of furniture you sit on while working. Wouldn’t that be perfect? Ergonomic recliners can also serve as a bed as their headrest and backrest can be easily adjusted. With a high-end seat, it would be possible to get a massage that would last as long as you wish while lying on your work chair.
One thing you should have in mind is that you will need to part with a good amount of money for a high-quality chair. There is a significant difference between a computer chair that will get you through a few hours and one on which you can comfortably spend all day. Therefore, if you have to spend the better part of your working day seated, you may need to consider saving up for a good chair.
However, once you buy the comfortable chair you desire, you will soon discover that it was worth every penny. A high-quality computer chair will do more than improve your physical health. It can help you enhance your productivity by reducing the stress you go through while working. Additionally, thinking about the comfort you will enjoy might make you look forward to reporting to work.
During my search, I realized how much an expert’s advice would have helped me. Some furniture sellers and store attendants may always suggest the best options when it comes to easing your work struggles. They may simply not have sufficient knowledge regarding the furniture that would best suit your needs. Hence, it would be wise to have some information when you go shopping.
At one point, the seller suggested a chair that had the same features as my former one. She tried to convince me that I would be quite satisfied with it. I would probably have considered buying the chair if I had no experience with it.
You will need to know more than just the features of the chair or desk you need. It is important to know the average price as well to avoid paying more than you should. A simple search online is one way to find information on the prices of different pieces of furniture. If you know an expert, you can consult them to understand the best material for computer chairs and desks. Showing sellers that you know your way around furniture will prevent them from ripping you off.
