Office Chairs for Small Spaces
Not all home offices are created equal; some vary in style, purpose and size. If you’re working with a home office or workstation smaller in size, you’re going to need an office chair and desk that will fit in your space without feeling cramped.
Choosing a Small Office Chair
Before you can style a small home office with a chair and desk, you will need to measure your space. Instead of ‘guesstimating,’ use a measuring tape – the more accurate your measurements, the easier time you will have when it comes to finding the perfect office chair. Designate an area of your home office to place your desk and chair, and measure accordingly. If you already have a small-space desk and are looking for a chair to go with it, measure the desk, and in particular, the space under the desk, by width, height and depth.
Small Space Office Chair Styles
Once you have an idea of the chair measurements that will work with your home office space, you can narrow down your search by style. To do this, pay attention to material, color and design – and match these facets to your office desk and/or the style of your office as a whole. For example, if your small space office desk features metallic accents, a black finish and a traditional silhouette, pairing with it a small space office chair that features metallic hardware, black upholstery and a classic office chair design will create a cohesive look – maintaining a crisp, fresh feel for a smaller home office.
