If you are looking for especially cheap office chairs, well, consider that cheap can be even extra expensive.

So please make a differentiation between “cheap” and “good value, reasonably priced”!

If you have read our article about “Total Cost of Ownership of Office Furniture” you know that you have to take more than the initial buying price into consideration. You have to think in years of lifecycle cost instead.

Best Home Office Chair’s Features

That said, on amazon there are quite a few cheap chairs, starting as low as $40.

But before you buy solely by price, here are some key aspects to look for:

  • as mentioned above, don’t buy just “cheap”
  • remember that “ergonomics” – the science of optimal office furniture – plays a big role
    • so make sure you buy an ergonomic chair
  • is the chair is big/wide enough for you?
  • does the chair have the optimal sitting height for you?
  • does  the chair come with adjustable armrests
  • make sure the chair is suitable for your weight
  • how good is the back support? Is it good enough for you?
  • does the chair have the ideal height (adjustable?) for your desk and height?
  • make sure you like the design – you will be in the same room for quite some time.

Read the reviews of other customer to decide if the cheap chair you plan to buy is just cheap or “reasonably priced”.


Best Office Chair: Not Cheap but priceworthy

Again, over the timespan of some months or years a chair costing you $200 can be cheaper than a chair costing you $100.

Not to mention the unknown costs of inner resistance to sit on that chair or of back pain, because the chair is ergonomically no fit for you.

After we now have decided that we mean “cheap” in the way of “reasonably priced”, let us check the market for a cheap chair.
