Do you remember those countless hours in class sitting through lectures but found it hard to pay attention because you couldn’t seem to stay comfortable? The devil is in the details which means quality, size, and comfort of a school chair can adversely affect a student’s learning experience.
School is stressful enough so a comfortable learning environment is absolutely paramount. Similar to an office environment, proper lumbar support maintains the spine’s natural arch so this leads to reduced back strain during long hours of learning. Having ample space below the chair allows easy access to books, bags, laptops, and other personal effects and also helps with organization.

It is time to purchase new school chairs for your classroom, but the amount of choices available can be overwhelming. To help you decide which will work best for your particular needs, we have provided five essential criteria for you to consider.
Chair Height and Age of Students
Will these chairs be used primarily for Kindergarten classrooms or might they also be used for older children? It is important to consider this question when choosing a chair so that you purchase chairs that the students fit in properly and avoid returns. Chairs are available in several seat heights to accommodate all student ages. A common stack chair may range in sizes of 10″H, 12″H, 14″H, 16″H and 18″H. These heights are measured from the floor to the seat surface. You can follow this rule to measure your existing chairs and order more of the same size, or use the guide below if ordering for the first time. If the chairs are to be used by various age groups, either purchase different sizes to accommodate each age or purchase the chair height made to accommodate the oldest in the group, as it is better for chairs to be too big than too small.
