How to choose the right gaming chair for you

Since gaming chairs vary in so many ways, it’s extremely important for you to know what you’re looking for and what qualities to prioritize. For example, is comfort or style the most important? Are you looking for a PC gaming chair or a racing simulator seat?

Secretlab chair and gaming set-up

Let’s dive deeper into how you can determine whether the chair you’re looking at is the one for you. There are a few characteristics or qualities to specifically look at, including:

  • Quality
  • Budget
  • Armrests
  • Upholstery
  • Weight capacity and recommended height
  • Console compatibility
  • Size or dimensions
  • Ergonomics

Here’s why they’re important. If you are slightly taller or wider set than the average individual, you don’t want to go with your average chair. There are gaming chairs made for taller people or with a higher weight capacity so you can avoid being hunched over or squished in the chair.

Knowing the size or dimensions allows you to choose a chair that fits into the space you have dedicated for it. There’s nothing worse than having a humongous chair and zero space to move with it. Additionally, it’s helpful to know the dimensions if you ever move or need to put the chair in the car.

For comfort, it’s crucial to look at the upholstery and armrests. The quality helps you avoid constantly spending money on new replacement parts or an entirely new chair.

To help you even further, here’s a list of questions you should ask yourself to help you figure out what the best chair is for you:

  • If you had to choose one quality you absolutely can’t live without, which one would it be?
  • If there was one quality you had to give up, which one would it be?
  • What’s your budget?
  • Do you have a specific area in mind for your chair? If so, what are the dimensions?
  • Do you have a specific kind of colour you prefer?
  • What is your weight and height? Will the chair adhere to that?
  • What’s your budget and does this chair fit it?
  • Does the design and style fit your personality, preference, and room?

Once you’ve answered those questions, you should have a better idea of which chair is a great one for you.

Types of gaming chairs

When discussing gaming chairs, it’s important to point out that there are three specific types of gaming chairs. Knowing which type makes sense for you, it could be a great starting point for where to look for your chair. Depending on where you are in your journey or your budget, one may be better for you than another.

Entry-level

Entry-level gaming chairs are great if you’re just getting started. You don’t need any bells and whistles and are simply looking for something basic. This doesn’t mean that there aren’t high-quality entry-level gaming chairs, but they’re more likely to fit a smaller budget.

An example for entry-level brands and chairs to look at is the Cougar Fusion.

High end

If your top priority is quality, wanting all the features and functions, as well as a large budget, high-end gaming chairs will be for you. High-end gaming chairs are some of the best on the market using quality fabrics and super comfortable. They also come with larger price tags, so be prepared to spend some money.

An example of a high-end chair is the ZQRacing Hyper Luxury Gaming Chair.

Console gaming

If you’re looking for a gaming chair specifically for console gaming, then you don’t necessarily need something that works with a desk. However, it should allow you to sit for long hours at a time. That means it’s important to prioritize ergonomics and comfort.

An example of a console gaming chair is the X Rocker Evo Elite.

Gaming Chair FAQ

Are gaming chairs bad for you?

If you had to choose between sitting in a regular office chair or in a gaming chair, chances are you’d choose the gaming chair. They are specifically designed to be ergonomic, allowing you to work or play for hours without pain.

So is it bad for you? Absolutely not. In fact, if you know you’ll be sitting for extended periods of time, having a gaming chair can be quite beneficial for you.

Are gaming chairs worth it?

Having a gaming chair comes at a price, but that price is justified by all the benefits it poses. A gaming chair offers more lumbar support than regular chairs and ensures that you sit up straight. You don’t have to worry about slouching or having terrible posture!

Gaming chairs also often come with the ability to adjust and recline to your desired comfort level. In the end, the question isn’t if the gaming chairs are worth it but if your comfort is worth it to you.

Are gaming chairs good for your office?

Since gaming chairs offer so much support for your back, they can be helpful for anybody sitting for long periods of time. If you know you do a lot of sitting in your office chair and your back starts hurting, give a gaming chair a try! We promise you won’t regret it!

What should I look for in a gaming chair?

There are different factors and features to look for in a gaming chair, including:

  • Budget
  • Quality
  • Adjustability
  • Color & Style
  • Non-skid base

Obviously, you don’t want to go too far out of your budget, but you also don’t want to skimp on quality. You need to find the best gaming chair for your needs that delivers on both. Since one of the main reasons gaming chairs are so amazing is lumbar support, it’s really crucial that there is major adjustability.

The non-skid base helps protect your floors and makes it easier to move your chair around, while colour and style are more personal preferences.

Can Gaming Chairs roll on the carpet?

Most gaming chairs have no issues rolling on the carpet. However, there are also specific gaming chairs that are made for carpets. They are quite a bit higher in price, so it’s really something to only consider if your budget is larger in the first place.

Can I paint my Gaming Chair?

No. Don’t go painting your gaming chair since it can cause more harm than good if you choose the wrong kind of paint. That’s why colour and style are so important.

If you have a colour preference, make sure to adhere to it right away. If you have several preferences, then sticking to something basic like all-black or black and grey may be the best solution for you. If you find that you don’t like your colour anymore, it’s best to simply buy a whole new chair.

How do I clean my Gaming Chair?

How you clean your gaming chair shouldn’t be too complicated, but it does depend on the material. In most cases, you won’t need special cleaning products. You can simply use a cloth or rag and dampen it before wiping the chair down.

Can a Gaming Chair fit in the car?

Gaming chairs typically fit into the car, unless you have an unusually small car or an unusually large gaming chair. Should it for whatever reason not fit inside your car, you can always strap it on the top or have it delivered. If you’re concerned about whether or not it’ll fit, simply look up the dimensions of the chair.

How should I clean a leather Gaming Chair?

Leather gaming chairs are a little more difficult to clean. Cleaning it the wrong way can seriously damage the leather, so be careful. A damp rag and water can typically get most of the chair clean, but what makes it more tedious is the fact that you’ll want to use a toothbrush to get into the nooks and crannies.

If you’re a low-maintenance person, just don’t buy a leather gaming chair!

Why are Gaming Chairs so expensive?

Gaming chairs come at all different price points, but they are objectively more expensive than regular office chairs. The reason why they are more expensive is that they include features and specialized fabrics to ensure comfort and more for gamers. They also often showcase craftsmanship that is indicative of high quality?

What are racing style Gaming Chairs?

If you have a smaller budget but love the idea of a gaming chair, then a racing-style gaming chair may be perfect for you. They typically are more affordable than other gaming chairs and much easier to clean. If you’re someone who’s extremely practical, then this is the kind of chair you’ll want to get.
