Before buying, just sit in that chair. Picture yourself at your desk, typing out an important mail to your boss or working on something revolutionary. In no time, you will realize if that is the chair you want or if you want to keep browsing.
And if you do decide to keep browsing, do the same with the next chair. And the next, till you finally find the one that is the perfect fit!
2. Never underestimate the power of the common “lumbar support”
Since you will be spending the majority of your day seated in this chair, adequate back support is mandatory to ensure that you won’t end up with a sore back by the end of the day. Nothing hampers productivity more than body ailments.
You may have to pay a little extra for this support on this fully adjustable office chairs, but considering what you get in return, that is an investment worth making.
3. A budget a day keeps overspending at bay!
While buying office chairs, it is extremely easy to go over budget. There would be many new features to chairs that you might not be aware of, till the time you reach the shop and once you become aware of said features, thanks to the smooth tongued sales people at the store, you might decide that you want those!
The best way to avoid overspending is to make sure that you decide on a budget. But also, if possible, have a little wiggle room to increase it, just in case an offer sounds too good to pass.
