Office Chairs Features Comparison
Adjustability goes a long way toward making an office chair comfortable and ergonomic. The best cheap office chairs have adjustable seat height, armrests, and tilt. A deep seat pan is best for tall users; short users should choose a seat that's not so deep. Try to test an office chair before buying it to make sure the seat fits your frame. The best budget office chairs have padded, adjustable armrests. Finding adjustable armrests can be a challenge, so if you resort to a chair with static armrests, be sure the height is right for you. The chair should be made of material that's breathable and easy to clean. The most breathable and popular material is mesh, while leather wipes off easily. Other features common to all our picks include a 360-degree swivel and a five-point or five-leg base to prevent the chair from tipping.
