Exploring the different types of office chairs to find your perfect sit can elevate your work-from-home experience and contribute to your overall mood, health and productivity. 

At Slouch, we want you to explore your options before making a decision and this guide to different types of office chairs is a good place to start. 

So let’s help you on your way to selecting the ideal office chair and create a stylish, comfortable, and functional home office space.

WHEN EXPLORING TYPES OF OFFICE CHAIRS, CONSIDER YOUR SPACE

Investing in the right office chairs really can make all the difference. But with a myriad of options available, it can be a daunting task to decide which type of office chair is best suited for your needs. In this comprehensive guide, we will explore various types of office chairs and help you determine the one that fits your home office like a glove.

Before you start browsing for office chairs, it’s essential to take into account the available space in your home office. The dimensions of your workspace can significantly influence your choice of chair. 

COMPACT OFFICE CHAIRS

If space is a key concern, compact office chairs are designed to fit snugly into smaller spaces without sacrificing comfort. 

Their streamlined design and scaled-down dimensions make them perfect for those working in tight quarters.

ERGONOMIC CHAIRS

Ergonomic chairs are designed to adapt to your needs, your shape and your movements. Whether you need more or less support or have a larger or smaller frame, ergonomic chairs feature a range of adjustable components to accommodate various body types and positions. 

Because they can be customised to meet your unique needs, ergonomic chairs can come with an array of hidden quality of life and health benefits in the long term.

STACKABLE CHAIRS

For multi-purpose home offices, where your workspace shares a room with other activities, stackable chairs are a versatile solution. When not in use, these chairs can be stacked and stored away, freeing up valuable space.

HOW DO YOU WORK FROM HOME?

Your preferred work style significantly influences your choice of an office chair. 

Do you prefer sitting at an office desk, working from a standing position, or even reclining? Here’s what to consider:

TASK CHAIRS

Task One Grey Frame Office Chair With Arms and Fog Seat

Task chairs are the unsung heroes of desk work and form our flagship product at Slouch. Our Grey Task One Office Chair With Arms and a fog seat in particular is a wonderful chair option, supporting the arms and able to fit in nicely with a variety of room colour schemes. 

They are versatile, offering good lumbar support, and are adjustable to suit various work positions. Speaking of different positions – the Black Task One Armless Office Chair and Charcoal Seat is a great option. 

Dark and mysterious, it makes for a stylish home office addition and gives you more freedom to move throughout the day.

Our heavily tested, high-quality Task One chairs can accommodate a wide variety of movements and weights, conform to your body and are easy to move around. 

Whether you’re typing up reports or sketching out your latest project, task chairs have your back.

STANDING DESKS AND STOOLS

Stools that complement standing desks are a fantastic choice for high-energy individuals who prefer to be on their feet working from a standing position more than sitting down.

RECLINING CHAIRS

If you like to unwind while you work or take short breaks, a reclining chair might be your perfect match. These chairs often come with built-in footrests, making them an excellent choice for quick power naps. 

Shh, we won’t tell if you don’t.

KNEELING CHAIRS

Kneeling chairs are designed to improve your posture and reduce lower back strain. They’re perfect if you prefer a more forward-leaning work position.

BALL CHAIRS

For those seeking a more active sitting experience, ball chairs encourage engagement of your core muscles while working, so you’ll be getting a work-out over the course of the day. 

This promotes better posture and balance, making them an excellent choice for the health-conscious worker. 

You also might feel the burn after a few hours, but who knows – you might be into that.

WOOD? PLASTIC? MESH? THE STYLE OF CHAIR MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE

Aside from how it feels, there’s no reason your office chair shouldn’t harmonise with your home office’s decor:

EXECUTIVE CHAIRS

If style is your top priority and budget is less of a concern, executive chairs should be on your radar. These chairs exude elegance and often feature luxurious leather upholstery. They make a statement in any home office, adding a touch of sophistication.

BUDGET-FRIENDLY CHAIRS

For those with a higher priority on affordability, budget-friendly office chairs offer a range of options that won’t break the bank. 

These chairs are perfect for cost-conscious consumers who still want functionality.

MESH CHAIRS
