This post is the third in our kids workspace series.
The older kids get, the more time they have to spend doing their school work. A desk is very useful, as it gives teenagers a quiet space to work on assignments or study for exams, but even younger kids will find a desk useful. However, you can’t have a desk without providing somewhere for your child to sit, which is why kids desk chairs are sold separately.
Some kids desks come with a chair as part of the package, but if yours does not, you will need to find a suitable chair for your child. Adult desk chairs tend to be too big for younger children, so it is sensible to look at kids desk chairs that are the right size. It may be helpful if your child can try a desk chair before you buy it, but if this is not possible, use your child’s height as a rough guide when purchasing a desk chair. Adjustable chairs offer extra versatility.
Kids desk chairs have just as many features as adult desk chairs. Look for support handles, adjustable height chairs, and since comfort is crucial, look for one with ergonomic features. Lastly, do not forget to take color and the overall style into account. It does not matter how comfortable a chair is – if it does not look “right”, your child will probably turn their nose up at it! Here is our guide to nine of the best.
