Armless chairs also have a smaller footprint making them great space-savers. Often when office chairs have arms there is the possibility that the chair may not fit properly under your desk which can lead to the hassle of having to return the chair if it does not work for your workplace. Having to measure your desk height along with finding the exact measurements of the chair's seat, arm, and overall height can be tedious and difficult. Buying an armless office chair eliminates this hassle with their ability to fit underneath just about any work station or desk without having to worry about taking precise measurements.
What type of wheels are ideal for hardwood floors? Does your office or home have hardwood floors that you would like to preserve from being scratched and damaged by your office chair? For most of us, the answer to this question is most likely a yes and luckily office furniture manufacturers have recognized the need for office chair wheels that will not damage hard surfaces. Soft casters are typically available as an upgrade on most office chairs and are inexpensive in price, with most costing less than $25 for a set of 5. Soft casters are designed to protect hard surfaces from being damaged from the constant rolling of an office chair and are best used on surfaces with hard wood flooring, tile, linoleum, or any other type of hard flooring. They also roll with more control on hard surfaces than carpet casters would, with more friction being applied between the wheel and the surface it is rolling on. Too much friction makes the chair difficult to move, too little friction makes the chair roll with even the slightest move you make.
Once you have your budget figured out, it is essential to identify the key ergonomic features you will want in your office chair. Some features you maybe looking for are the overall height of the chair, the shape and contour of the back rest, the type of arm rests and whether the chair swivels or is fixed in place. Other features you may want to think about including in your search are ergonomic functions such as seat height, back height, knee tilt, movable arm rests, a seat slider, a ratchet back, and built in lumbar support. You will also need to consider the nature of your work; do you work in a call center sitting in a chair 12 hours a day or do you work from home 3-4 hours a day? You will also need to factor in your height and your weight, if you are under 5'3” you may want to opt for a petite office chair in order to fit your body or conversely if you are 6'4” you will want to look into a big and tall chair to support you. Your chair will need to fit into your pre-exisitng color scheme where you will be using it, so look into similar chair colors as what you already have going on.
