The Importance of a Good Office Chair

The importance of a good office chair cannot be over emphasised. I remember how badly my lower back suffered while I was pregnant at my previous job. I had over 3 pillows but they hardly helped. I was sitting for long hours with very little breaks here and there, so I needed a very comfortable office chair. I had little or no support from the chairs at work even before I fell pregnant, so you can imagine the torture I went through heavily pregnant with twins.

I had my chairs changed many times but there was hardly any difference, I was just not comfortable sitting on any of them. They were either too wobbly, too stiff or just not comfortable, regardless of the sitting position I was in.

So I have made it a mission to shop around for a very comfortable chair for our home office once it is ready and good to go. A comfortable office chair is the best office furniture because we tend to sit for long periods of time, so we need an office chair with adequate support. Sitting on the office chair is where most of the office magic happens, we all spend a good amount of time on it so this is one office furniture we should pay special attention to.

Here are 2 main benefits of good office chairs

  1. It will ensure we don’t suffer from back aches and pains. It will provide proper lumbar and pelvic support which results in our back muscles being less stressed.

2. It will keep us comfortable; which helps because it means we can get more work done.

Sitting on an uncomfortable chair is one of the worst things you could do to me. I don’t sit still, so I need a versatile chair that cn recline, move and keep up with my many sitting positions. That is one key feature I look out for in office chairs. And I think I will find the design I want at Furniture At Work. It is a UK office furniture specialist with very affordable prices, so it is definitely worth checking out for deals.

What do you look out for in an office chair? How would you describe a good office chair?

A Fantastic Home Office

I am currently in the middle of sorting out our home office. There was a designated room meant to be a study but I never got to sorting it out until now. It is still a work-in-progress. We have got a few bits and bobs like a printer, drawers and shelves sorted but there is still a lot more to go in and go out. And I need to crack on with the decorating.

At the moment, I work anywhere and everywhere around my house, but I tend to favour my bed (very bad I know) and the couch (also very bad). You can also find me working in a room at the top floor of my house. It is my little Writers’ Coven I told you all about some months ago. I love working there because there is a ceiling window, and it looks amazing especially in the summer.  The direct sunlight keeps me awake and alert. I get to take some amazing product shots there as well, which is why I cherish this particular work space so much.

Here are the features I look out for in a home work space –

 

Direct sunlight

I need at least 1 window in my work space, and I like to sit close to it. It keeps me very awake and alert. And that is the reason why my top floor bedroom is my writing refuge. The ceiling window keeps my creative juice flowing.

 

Comfortable sitting and typing position

Like most busy mothers I know, I suffer from aches and pains every now and again. I spend hours in a day on my laptop, so I like my work space to be very comfortable. I pay special attention to my sitting position position. I make sure I am sitting and typing in the right posture with regular breaks.

I am currently shopping around for some home office furniture, and I have my eye on some loose home office furniture, and I am hoping to get them all in the next few months.

 

Perfect Temperature

I recently wrote about how I struggle with keeping our house warm during winter, and keeping it cool during summer. I work from home, so I need my home office to have the right temperature, especially in extreme weather situations. I won’t be able to get any work done if the temperature isn’t right.

Sensible Storage

I like to have my home office very organised. I can’t think in a mess, so everything has to go into the right place. Our home office is only a small room, so I have to make the most of the tiny space, and that is where sensible storage comes in handy. I got a couple of movable drawers which I have found very handy. And I also have a book shelf, which stores majority of my work stuff, in an organised manner.

 

These are the features I look out for in a home office. What do you look out for?
