Cut to Fit: How to Increase the Height of Your Swivel Chair

When you are sitting on a swivel chair, how high should the back be? This question is something that many people ask themselves before they buy their next office chair.

If you have ever bought a new office chair, only to find out it was too low when you sat in it for an hour or two, then this blog post is for you! We will discuss how to measure your height and how to adjust your swivel chair so that it fits well with your height.

Tips on How to Increase the Height of Swivel Chair

Tip 1. Measure Your Height: The first thing you will need to do is measure how far from the ground you are. You can use a tape measure, or just estimate it with a ruler or yardstick. Measure from the top of your head all the way down to your feet.

Tip 2. Measure Your Swivel Chair: Next, measure how high off the ground your current office chairs are and then compare with how tall you are. If there is a big discrepancy in how high your seat is compared to how tall you are, it might be time for an upgrade.

Tip 3. Adjusting Your Swivel Chair: Adjust your office chairs’ seat height so that it is at least one inch below where you measure from the ground, or as close as possible if not less than an inch. This will ensure a comfortable and healthy work experience.

Tip 4. Increase Your Height: If you are still experiencing discomfort, try purchasing an additional cushion or wedge that can be placed under your legs. This will provide extra support for your back and give you a more natural sitting position if needed. Some office chairs have this built-in!

Tip 5. Purchasing a New Chair: If you are still experiencing discomfort, try purchasing an additional cushion or wedge that can be placed under your legs. This will provide extra support for your back and give you a more natural sitting position if needed. Some office chairs have this built-in!

How do you Make a Rolling Chair Taller?

The first thing to do is measure how tall you are. It doesn’t matter how far down the seat of your chair goes, but rather how high it has to go above your desk so that you can fit comfortably in it for long periods of time. For example, if a swivel chair’s backrest needs to be raised by an inch, and you are five foot six inches tall, then the chair would need to be raised by three inches.

There’s a couple of ways how to measure your height

Step 1. Using a ruler or measuring tape, stand against something stable in your home that is at least knee-high (like a countertop) and have someone else measure how tall you are.

Step 2. Have someone else measure how high your back needs to be by measuring how high the chair is when it’s at its lowest point and then adding three inches (for example, if a swivel chair’s backrests need to be raised by four inches but they’re already about six or seven inches off the ground, then the person needs to measure how tall you are and add four inches).

Step 3. Raise one leg of the chair (just like making a step) and have someone else make sure it’s stable. If so, use that as your height measurement for how high the backrests need to be raised.

How do you Lower the Height of a Chair?

Lower one leg of the chair (just like making a step) and have someone else make sure it’s stable. If so, use that as your height measurement for how high the backrests need to be lowered.

How do you Adjust a Chair With 3 Levers?

Adjust the backrest height, front tilt and seat depth simultaneously with a single adjustment.

How do you Adjust a Chair With Locking Mechanism?

The locking mechanism is how to keep your adjustments in place. To get started, release all levers on the chair so that they are perpendicular or square to the floor (unlocked). Pull both levers on the left and right of the chair back towards you (locked).

Pull both levers back to unlock them, then lean back in your seat. Your adjustments are now locked into place for how high it is set.

Lock one or more adjustment levels by pulling either side backward until they lock securely with a click sound. To release any side, pull it back toward you until the lever is perpendicular to the floor.

What is Tension Control on a Chair?

Tension control on a chair is how much the back of the chair reclines. It is not about how far you can lean back, but how tight or loose your backrest will be when it hits its maximum tilt.

Each person’s preference for tension may differ and there are many ways to adjust this feature:

  • Tilting the backrest up or down
  • Lengthening how far away from you it is placed
  • Changing how tight or loose its resistance is by adjusting how much weight has to be applied before it moves.
