If there is any one factor that you can change to make spending eight hours a day in an office easier, it’s your chair. There is no shortage of evidence proving that being stuck in a chair for too long can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and worsen back pain. In fact, sitting too much is even called worse than smoking. Many people who have office jobs develop problems like numbness, spinal misalignment, joint pain, neck pain, and herniated discs — usually from sitting too long on a poor quality chair without support. While you probably do not want to spend a lot of money on a chair, a high-quality ergonomic chair is an investment in your health, comfort and productivity. Two separate studies, published in 1990 and 2003, found productivity goes up more than 17% when individuals work in an ergonomic setting with an adjustable chair.
It not only will cozy up the space and make it a far more inviting place in which to work, but if it’s a sofabed, your home office can double as a guest room. Place a lamp on a filing cabinet by the couch and it will act as a lamp table by day and as a bedside table whenever guests stay over. Portable, expandable filing systems are just as functional as those in more substantial filing cabinets, but their real advantage is that they can be stashed out of sight. Old suitcases like these could hold all of your important papers in fabulous eclectic style. Old cabinets and chests of drawers are other handy places for stashing cardboard or plastic expandable filing systems. Once you consider the alternatives, a traditional metal filing cabinet is unlikely ever to enter your home office again. Nothing adds more warmth and charm to a room than a relic from the past, and when it’s in natural wood form, the effect is multiplied. Look for industrial-style or antique filing options in secondhand stores or get the look with a reproduction. This one packs in a lot of filing space and adds charm to this otherwise simple home office.
This chair also gets high praise for its passive pelvic support that helps you maintain corrrect spinal alignment. This simple pad helps you maintain the natural curvature at the small of your back to make lower back pain a thing of the past. If you prefer to recline, an optional headrest is available. While the chair’s main selling features are its passive pelvic support and ability to adjust the lumbar for the left and right side of the back independently, you also have the standard chair adjustments. This includes adjusting tilt, arm rest width and height, seat height, and tension. This video gives you a full introduction to the Zody chair.
