What To Consider When Buying A Red Office Chair
I love a beautifully-designed red chair. When buying a red chair you will want to consider many variables that are similar to buying any type of home office chair. Core variables to consider include price, design, material, and general aesthetics. However when buying a red chair you will want to think about the color and shade of red, how the red looks relative to your broader home office work environment, and the ease at which you can maintain and keep the chair red overtime so that it preserves its natural color.
Shades of Red and Design Standards
There are many different shades of red. When evaluating a red chair to purchase, you should think about the environment you will place your chair in. Is the room well-lit or darker? Is there a carpet on the floors? What color is the room painted? If you have your heart set on buying a red chair, you will still want to match the type of red color with the environment that the chair will be placed in and used.
Generally speaking, red chairs are associated with home office workers that also like gaming. Many gaming chairs happen to be red. A red chair conveys power, speed, and agility. A red chair can be both serious and fun. The most iconic of red chairs is actually not found in the office. It was first championed in the design standards by the famous auto manufacturer Ferrari. Today many home office chairs that are red have an uncanny resemblance to the Ferrari design standards.
If you love the color red for your chair, you will want to take extra caution to maintain, clean, and preserve the red color of your chair. This is because red chairs, for better or worse, can show dirt, dog fur, or other wear and tear more so than darker shaded chairs. This is particularly true if the red is a very light hue. Chair cleaning and maintenance, luckily, are quite simple. But, it is something you should consider when buying a chair nevertheless. Budget in seat maintenance. You will want to take a few minutes per month to wipe down or clean a chair, as a red chair will look best when well-preserved.
How a Red Office Chair Looks In Your Home
Beyond the shade of red, you should strongly consider other aspects of the chair besides its color. For example, is the chair comfortable to sit in? What does your body – and in particular your lower back – need to work effectively throughout the day in your home office? Think about the ergonomic design standards that the chair has. Is its height or tilt easily adjustable? Does the red chair have armrests or not? These are questions that all home office chairs must have independent of the color. If you have your heart set on red, you should then think about other attributes of the chair that will make it a pleasant experience to use besides the shade of color.
I once had the incredible misfortune of buying an uncomfortable home office chair. Even though the chair looked nice and was high-quality, it was very uncomfortable to sit in for long periods of time. Ever since that experience, I have been converted to prioritizing comfort over all else when selecting a chair. That is because I am in my home office chair for upwards of 12 hours per day. I strongly encourage you to buy a chair that has lumbar support, arm and neck support, and general ergonomic features. If you are open to other colors, check out our ergonomic office chair section!
Red Chair For The Home Office
When growing up, my parents had a red office chair. There were two great things about the chair. It not only felt great to sit in, but it looked wonderful with the white walls and natural light that came in through the windows. A red chair is different. It is unique. As such, red chairs look great on video calls.
Red chairs are reasonably priced and you should not expect to pay a premium for the color. This is great news for you because you can get the chair of your dreams in the color or shade of red you most like without having to pay more. As long as you factor in that you might need to spend a little bit more time cleaning your chair for general upkeep you will be good to go with any of the red chairs we have reviewed.
