Fluid’s Ultimate Guide to Office Chairs

In today's fast-paced corporate world, the importance of comfort and productivity in the workplace cannot be overstated. Whether you're equipping a bustling corporate office or setting up a productive workspace, the right office chair is a key component.

With your people often spending more than 30 hours a week in these chairs, providing your staff with high-quality ergonomic chairs is a viable investment that will pay off with improved well-being and productivity.

With a world of variety in the workplace chairs available on the market, it can be hard to know what is best for your office needs. That’s why Fluid has put together this comprehensive guide to give you all the information you need to make an informed choice for your space.

In this guide, we'll explore the world of office chairs and provide insights into how to make the right choice for your unique requirements. We'll also showcase some noteworthy options available in our expert range at Fluid.

How Much Does an Office Chair Cost?

The cost of office chairs can vary significantly based on factors like materials, features, and brand reputation. Generally, office chairs can range from budget-friendly options in the £100- £200 range, all the way up to premium chairs that can exceed £1,000. It's crucial to strike a balance between your budget and your work requirements when selecting an office chair.

If you want to ensure you are getting the best chairs possible for your office space but need to avoid high capital expenditure, furniture rental can be a great option. FluidSpace Flex™ is a subscription-based office furniture rental scheme that gives organisations complete flexibility to increase or reduce their furniture on demand. With low monthly costs instead of large initial outlays, it allows organisations to retain capital for business growth, all without compromising when it comes to getting the right furniture.

What Are the Best Office Chairs?

Selecting the ideal office chair hinges on your organisation's unique needs, which means that the answer to this question is different for everyone.

There are many options when it comes to meeting the demands of a dynamic modern workplace and choosing the right seating can have a big impact. It's more than just furniture; it's a potentially productivity-enhancing and comfort-promoting tool for your employees that represents your brand’s values.

Every office chair in our collection has been carefully selected for comfort, functionality, and

aesthetics. Our most popular office chairs are supremely comfortable and offer an array of practical features including in-built lumbar arch support and adjustable armrests, heights, and backs for full personalisation. This helps to ensure employees can sit comfortably and stay focused all day long.

How Do I Choose an Office Chair?

Choosing the right office chair involves choosing between several factors, but here are some of the main considerations that should guide you to the perfect chair:

Ergonomics: Look for chairs with adjustable features such as lumbar support, seat height,

and armrests. Ergonomic chairs are designed to support your body's natural posture,

reducing the risk of strain and discomfort during long hours of work.

Comfort: Opt for a chair with ample padding and breathable materials to enhance comfort.

Seat depth and width should also accommodate the body size and shape of the user.

Durability: A well-constructed chair with high-quality materials will last longer, provide

better value for your investment and avoid unnecessary landfill.

Mobility: Consider whether you need a chair with wheels for easy movement around the

office or a static stable chair.

Style: Choose a chair that complements your office's aesthetic while maintaining

functionality - style over substance is what often leads to injuries.

Your office chair choice reflects your workplace culture, be it adaptable, flexible, or ergonomic-focused. It goes beyond mere furniture, empowering your team's excellence and enhancing your organisation's success.

What's a Task Chair?

A task chair is a highly versatile seating option designed to cater to various workspaces and body types. Unlike specialised chairs that target specific body areas, task chairs are adjustable and intended to accommodate a wide range of individuals. This adaptability makes them a common choice in shared workspaces, where diverse users have varying needs.

What Is the Best Office Chair for Long Hours?

An ergonomic chair is designed to provide optimal support and comfort for the human body, taking into account factors such as posture, health, and overall well-being. One of the compelling reasons to invest in an ergonomic office chair is the array of health benefits it offers through regular use.

These chairs excel at alleviating lower back pain, offering vital support to the spine, maintaining joints in a neutral position, and relieving strain on the neck and shoulders. Their ergonomic features contribute to a healthier and more comfortable workspace, making them an essential choice for those prioritising the physical well-being of staff during long hours of work.

Now, let's explore some office chair options available at Fluid to help you make an informed choice:
