Choosing an Ergonomic Chair in Singapore 2021

Now that work from home has gradually become the norm, a lot of office workers, students, and business owners are swiftly transitioning from the traditional office space set-up to the home office set-up. Along with this, comes a new set of challenges with adjusting to the new work environment. If you tend to sit for long hours back in the office, expect to spend longer hours in a sitting position while working remotely. Research shows that office workers spend 75% of their waking hours sitting down. With much of this time spent sitting, it is no surprise to have body aches after a whole day of working in front of your desk. But chances are, the blame is on your chair. This is where having an ergonomic chair will be of great use. Having one in your home will serve you a lot of benefits not just in improving your sitting posture but also in increasing your levels of work productivity.

1. Traditional Office Chair with Handrest

Whether you’re getting your home office set up or looking to update your office space with new equipment and furnishings, a traditional office chair with handrest should be more than suffice for your working needs. An ergonomic chair is more than just a fancy chair. It’s a necessity for everyone who spends 8-10 hours sitting in front of the desk. This type of ergonomic chair has a sleek and modern design perfect for offices with a contemporary look.

2. Futuristic Ergonomic Chair

If you wish to create a conceptual look with your office set-up, a futuristic ergonomic chair would be a wonderful addition. This kind of office chair has a contemporary look with leading-edge features to keep you comfortable even while sitting for hours. A futuristic-styled ergonomic chair adds drama to the interior of your office or home. If you have a huge contemporary office style, having this type of chair on your desk will definitely induce a sense of authority and sophistication.

3. Petite Ergonomic Office Chair

Petite office chairs are obviously small chairs that can fit in offices with limited areas. Although smaller than most ergonomic chairs, they still serve their purpose and provide quality seating features and comfort. Some people don’t have an extra room to convert into a home office. They often find comfortable nooks in their homes where they can configure into a working area. This is where petite office chairs will come in handy. You can still have a visually appealing office even with limited space.

4. Executive Office Chair

This is probably the most popular type of office chair. Just as its name infers, executive office chairs are typically used by executives. It is designed to look elegant and imposing. This type of chair has plenty of cushioning in the seats which makes it very comfortable to sit on. But executive office chairs are not limited to the higher-ups. You can get one for yourself if you want to! Regardless of your office style, an executive office chair would look just fine because this type of chair is pretty much very versatile.

5. Gaming Ergonomic Chair

Similar to the traditional office chair, but with more features and emphasis on comfort and function. In addition to the all functions that the average office chair provides, these gaming chairs take it to the next level with adjustable headrest, handrest, possibly legrest. These features come at a price though, aside from the hefty pricetag, the chair itself is usually much heavier.

There you have your options. Now the next step is all about choosing the right chair for your particular office interior style. It’s actually pretty simple. As you now know, an ergonomic chair is versatile in design. So, it doesn’t matter whether your office is modern, minimalistic, contemporary, or even a little unconventional in design.
