Gaming chairs have such a great reputation for being comfortable and good for posture that they’re often used in offices where gaming isn’t going to be happening at all. Essentially, they’re great at sitting at for long periods, especially with the option of a footrest. If you’re in the need of a gaming chair with a footrest, check out our list of some of the best around below.
Best Gaming Chairs With Footrest on Amazon
How to pick the best gaming chair with footrest for you
- Consider size – Gaming chairs are notoriously large and will often be too big to fit in a small box room or office. After figuring out the rough area where you’ll keep the chair, also get the dimensions of the space so that you know it’ll fit well.
- Consider adjustability – Part of being comfortable in a chair means being able to change the height and tilt of it to your needs on any given day. An adjustable headrest, adjustable height and a retractable footrest, for example, are also a great idea if multiple people are going to be using the chair.
- Consider material – The vast majority of gaming chairs are going to come in a faux leather that’s great not only because it’s comfortable, but because potential food or drink spillage won’t cause stains. However, perhaps a upholstery fabric is the better option for some.
- Consider design – Gaming chairs can be out there in terms of color choice and design, so make sure that you’re picking one that goes with the rest of the room, whether that’s a gaming setup or a formal office.
