2 min

Do you need to buy a new chair for your home?

Buying a new chair isn’t as simple as heading down to your local furniture store and picking something out willy nilly. There’s a lot you have to consider if you’re going to buy a chair that you’ll love for years to come. In the end, the type of chair that you get should depend on what you’re using it for.

Everything from color, shape, and size matters, and in this post, we’re going to be exclusively discussing chair size. Keep reading and you’ll know exactly which size of chair to get for your house.

What Are You Using the Chair For?

Before you start looking at chairs, you need to figure out what you’re using the chair for. Obviously, a chair for your dining room is going to have different requirements to a chair that goes in your living or family room. Office chairs are in their own little world of height and comfort requirements.

Once you know what type of chair you’re trying to buy, you can start looking at where in your house you’re going to put it and how you’re going to be affected by sitting in it.

Looking At Your Room

If you’re getting a lounge chair to put in your family room, for example, you need to think about where in the room you’re going to put it and how much space you have for the chair to exist. The last thing you want is to go out and buy a chair that’s going to dominate your living space and take away from the overall vibe of the room.

The next step, then, is to measure the space that you want to put the chair in. This should give you a solid idea of how much room you’ve got to work with when you go to purchase your chair.

For dining chairs, you need to look at your dining area and how much space you’ve got, but also how high your table is. You want your chairs to be tall and support people’s backs, but they should also look the part when placed with your dining table.

Your Comfort

Comfort is an important thing in a chair and size has a lot to do with it. Let’s think about office chairs here, where comfort and support become the two biggest factors in choosing a chair. With more and more people working from home post-pandemic, you might be spending 8-hours per day in this chair, so something like an ergonomic office chair for posture is going to be a good way to go.

These chairs have high backs to support your posture and give you the ability to adjust the height of the seat so that you’re always at the best level to safely do your work.

The Best Chair Size

Now that you know how to choose the best chair size, you can go out and find the perfect chair for your home office, dining room, or living space. Getting a good chair can be a game-changer for your general comfort, whether it’s in front of the TV or at your computer, so get one that’s the right size, feels good, and looks great.
