Upgrading Your Home Office: Three Office Chairs You Need To Check Out
When you think of upgrading your home office you might immediately go to new computers, monitors, or a bigger desk. However, one of the most important additions you can make to your workspace is a quality chair. If you’re like me, between working from home and playing video games, I spend most of my waking hours sitting in my techno cave office. With that being said, here are three office chairs you need to check out before you buy your next one.
3 Best Home Office Chairs
If you regularly follow the Clever Dude, then you know over the last year I have slowly been upgrading our family home office. In the last 12 months, we have bought and reviewed new computers, desks, monitors, and a host of other home office staples in an attempt to make post-COVID life more bearable.
When we started this journey I was pretty much a novice when it came to any technology, unless it was equipped on a Mercedes or a Porsche. After watching countless hours of tech YouTube videos and reading tons of articles about what software coders and programmers use, here are the three best office chairs I have come across.
The first chair on our list is the True Innovations Mesh Chair. This is the chair I actually bought because it was both comfortable and cost-effective. You will find out later in this article how expensive office chairs can get. The True Innovations chair offers a mesh back with adjustable lumbar support, fully adjustable armrests, and a soft foam cushion on the seat. You can pick up this mesh chair at Costco for the low price of about $120, backed by Costcos unbeatable warranty.
The Flexfit Hyken Mesh Task Chair is a favorite of coders and software engineers for its moderate cost and overall functionality. Many reviews of the Hyken claim that the chair is perfect for work tasks or if you want to just kick back and watch a movie. The Hyken comes with a mesh back, mesh seat, adjustable armrests, and a weight capacity of 275 lbs. One thing this chair has over the Costco chair is the headrest. If you find yourself lounging in your chair instead of working as I do, the headrest can be a nice feature.
As far as the price goes the Hyken is a little more expensive, clocking in at $193 on Amazon right now. Despite the rave reviews on the Hyken, I chose the Costco Chair because it was a little cheaper and I don’t need a headrest. However, they do sell this chair at Staples as well if you want to go check it out in person.
The final office chair on our list is the Herman Miller Aeron Ergonomic Chair. This chair is pretty expensive at around $1,400, depending on where you buy it. It offers almost limitless customization though. There are loads of knobs and levers to adjust almost every aspect of the Aeron from seating angle, armrests, lumbar support, and tons more.
If you have over $1,000 to spend on an office chair, buy a Herman Miller and skip all the others. The Aeron especially is a highly coveted place to sit and even used ones sell for tons of money.
At the end of the day, the type of office chair you decide to buy will depend on your personal needs. That said, all of the chairs listed above are great options if you’re in the market for a new one.
