Having comfortable desk chairs for your kids is not a luxury but an actual need.
Most kid’s rooms will often already have a workstation, but often enough, finding the right chair to fit the desk your kids needs usually takes some thought.
While there may be many options to choose from, you soon realize that only a handful of them can truly deliver the quality, comfort, sturdiness and longevity you are looking for.
In this post, we bring you the handful of comfortable desk chairs that tick all the right boxes and then some.
But first, what do you need to consider when getting your kid a desk chair?
Naturally, the age of your child determines the size of the desk chair that you choose to get for them.
A 3 year old kid going upwards will need a desk chair that they can easily get on to and off. By this age, kids are fascinated by items and activities such as coloring and scribbling as well as supervised painting. If your child is going to play with paint, you best be prepared for a hearty mess with paint all over the floor, clothes, desk and chair.
For that reason, the chair needs to be easy to clean.
If you want your child to use the same chair even as they grow into schooling, you may opt for a chair that is height adjustable. That way, the chair remains usable even as your kid grows taller and bigger.
If it’s good quality, your child will use the same chair until the end of their pre-teens and perhaps be handed down to the younger siblings following suit.
The construction material used on a kid desk chair will determine the level of comfort, longevity and to some degree, versatility in utility.
A metal frame or sturdy molded plastic will mean absolute sturdiness and impressive durability. Well placed plastic elements add a light weight to the chair and make for easy cleaning.
There are numerous designs to work with when it comes to a desk chair for your kid.
Some chairs are stationary meaning your child will have to stand up to get an item from a shelf if it’s a few feet from the chair. Other chairs may have a swivel design making it possible to make 360 degree turn and grab a toy from a shelf behind them. Some other designs will come with a swivel feature and include a castor-wheel base such that your kid can wheel himself from one end of a room to another all in the name of fun!
If your child is in her pre-teens, you can expect them to grow like a weed, really fast! That said, you may want to consider a design with height adjustment that allows you kid to grow while using the seat quite comfortably for years to come.
Now that we have an idea of what to look out for when considering getting a kids desk chair, let’s check out our recommendations that possess the above traits and so much more
