Many of us spend the majority of our time at work in a sitting position, so it’s important to make sure you are sitting on the right chair.  Comfortable office seating, correctly adjusted and used properly is essential for a healthy working environment.

So, where do you start?  What should you be looking for when selecting  office chairs?  Finding the right chair doesn’t always mean spending a huge amount of money; it just means spending it wisely!  At Whitespace we have access to an extensive range of seating from leading manufacturers, ensuring the right solution to suit your budget and comfort requirements will be found to ensure  you and your employees could be sitting comfortably in no time…

Office chairs should have an adjustable seat/height control to ensure your feet rest flat on the floor and feel comfortable when seated, if this is not possible, a footrest may be required. A waterfall (curved) front edge should comfortably support the thighs and leave no pressure behind the knees.  The chair should offer lumbar support to the spine by allowing the chair to mould to the natural curve of the spine. The backrest should also be designed to support both the upper and lower back in all sitting positions.  Adjustable backrests allow users to customise the chair to their own personal preferences.

The armrests can be an important factor for user comfort.  Armrests should support the users’ arms, but not restrict posture or the ability of the chair to slide under the workstation.  Purchasing a chair with adjustable armrests means the chair can be customised to suit individual comfort.
