If we talk about the choice of the necessary furniture to create a workplace in the office, the staff are rarely involved in the purchase of certain devices, but the responsibility for the selection of furniture for home use lies entirely on the host home. In this article we will talk about how to choose the right computer chair that will not only meet the basic principles of ergonomics, but also organically fit into the existing interior.
Criteria for choosing computer chairs for home use
The main criterion for the selection of computer chairs for home use is the duration of the use of a technical device. Someone holds the monitor for half an hour a day, checking e-mails before going to sleep, and others - are working full time as a freelancer. It is obvious that the level of requirements for the piece of furniture, in both cases will be different. Let's take a closer look at options for use of different models of computer chairs in terms of the amount of time spent.
If you plan to purchase the chair for a household that spends on the computer no more than one or two hours a day in the aggregate, the requirements for such a piece of furniture will be low. In order to check e-mail or a short time to sit in social networks and fairly easy chair with a backrest or a small chair in keeping with the rest of upholstered furniture.

The average duration of work at the computer
If a person spends on the computer for two to five hours a day in the aggregate, the minimum set of criteria for the selection of furniture can not do. Armchair for medium loads (duration of use) must have the following settings:
- adjustable seat height and backrest;
- possibility of changing the back angle;
- ability to seat depth adjustment;
- portability of the assembly.

In the chair for medium load duration backrest must have an orthopedic form, ie repeating curves of the spine. Visually, this back is easy to determine - in the area of the waist design fits snugly to the body, providing maximum support, "unloading" of the spine muscles.
Most modern models with orthopedic elements used Upholstered upholstery - on a rigid frame tensioned technical fabric (or a substitute), and in the lumbar region, an additional supporting strip.
Full-time jobs at home
If you spend at the computer more than five hours per day, ie, workplace for you is so in the truest sense of the word, the conventional height adjustment of the seat and the backrest can not be without.

In a separate room equipped as an office or in the living room with a working area, a leather chair looks luxurious, bringing notes of room design comfort and chic. Often these computer chairs have a very impressive size, equipped with armrests and head restraints (some models have additional removable footrest).
Chair, which will serve as part of furnishing a child's room should be not only ergonomic, but also practical. Adjusting the height of the backrest and seat is required. But one should also not forget about the requirements for the upholstery of seats - hygroscopic fabric, breathable and quickly absorbs moisture.
