How to Choose the Right Drafting Office Chair

The chair that is used when drafting is very important. The right chair can make working much more comfortable. The wrong chair can affect the quality of the drawings that are made. There are several things to look for when choosing a drafting office chair.

Fully Adjustable Seat and Back

The first thing to look for is a fully adjustable seat and back. A good chair will have a lever to adjust the height so that it can be used at any drafting table or desk. It is also helpful to look for a chair that has additional levers that allow for adjustments to the angle of the seat and the angle of the back. If the chair has arms, then the arms should be adjustable in some way. A fully adjustable chair can be personalized so that it is comfortable and functional.

Foot Support

The next thing to look for is foot support. Foot support makes it easier to perform detailed drafting by helping to stabilize the body. It becomes simpler to lean forward when working on a small section of a drawing. A drafting office chair should have a circular footrest on the bottom or an area where the feet can be safely rested while working. It is also a good idea to find a chair that has adjustable foot support so that it can be raised or lowered depending on the needs of the draftsperson.


Try to find a chair that has casters. Casters are the wheels on the bottom. Casters are important because it allows for easy mobility while working. The chair can be slid to the side when working on a large drawing. They also make it simple to move between workstations or around a small area inside of an office. Check if the casters lock. Locking casters on a chair can provide added stability when performing delicate work.

Ergonomic Design

The final thing to look for is an ergonomic design. The chair will likely be occupied for hours every day. A poorly designed chair can lead to back, shoulder and neck problems. Choose a chair that has an ergonomic design that includes lumbar support. Extra support and an ergonomic design can make it easier to create large drawings and plans.
