How To Choose The Right Office Chair For Your Office

Regardless of whether the chair is for your employees or your home office:

Make sure you’re getting your money’s worth! In terms of quality and comfort!

The point is to be able to work long hours without straining your back! Thus, boosting mood and concentration too!

1. Construction (Materials And Durability)

How much weight can the chair stand? Do the wheels and base look sturdy?

Is the material breathable? PU leather and foam tend to feel warm fast if you’re not going to turn on the air conditioner!

In this list, you’ll find chairs with mesh backs for better ventilation!

2. Comfort Level

While you can’t always try the chair for yourself, there are things you can look out for in a comfy chair (same as you would for a gaming chair):

  • Adjustability  (e.g. arm rests, seat height, head rest, etc)
  • Knees should rest at a 90 degree angle when you sit on the chair
  • A thick cushion that is contoured
  • Curved back that follows the spine

3. Do You Need Lumbar And Back Support?

Spend about as much time in your office chair as you sleep on your mattress?

That’s why it’s important to get a chair with adequate lumbar support. There are some models that even have a firmness control in case you need the support to be softer!

4. Can The Chair Recline?

Not a deal breaker for most people:

But if you fancy taking naps in your office chair (instead of your sofa bed), look for this feature! Don’t assume that every office chair can recline like a massage chair!

Conclusion

Out of this list of the best office chairs you can get in Malaysia, items 7 (low back) and 10 (high back) will fit budgets under RM200.

While items 1,5 and 6 have our vote for best value for money!
