Mesh vs Upholstered Fabric or Padded Office Chair

Mesh vs Upholstered Fabric or Padded Office Chair

Mesh vs Upholstered Fabric or Padded Office ChairSo you are in the market for a new office chair. But you cannot decide between mesh or an upholstered fabric or padded office chair?

Upholstered fabric or padded office chairs give the look of comfort. After all at the end of the working day you would always choose your upholstered padded and comfortable armchair over your pine or teak dining chair or polyurethane kitchen chair. Indeed a cushioned fabric seat and back on any chair is more appealing.

So to compare fabric with mesh on the comfort factor. Mesh has gained in popularity in the comfort stakes. It may not look as comfortable but mesh is supportive which therefore provides great comfort.

The main benefit with mesh is its breathability. Hot summer days may be few and far between in the UK but centrally heated warm office environments are not. A regular complaint with an upholstered back on an office chair is it is too warm and the user ends up with a sweaty back – ugh!

Mesh vs Upholstered Fabric or Padded Office ChairDurability is another key advantage to the mesh. The mesh weave is tightly woven and so very strong. Upholstered or padded office chairs can get torn and the padding can begin to look squashed or sunken in areas ageing the chair.

Another bonus factor for mesh vs upholstered office chairs is hygiene and cleaning. This is largely due to the fact that the mesh does not get as dirty. No sweaty back equals no sweaty stained chair!

Mesh vs Upholstered Fabric or Padded Office ChairMoving on to colour finishes. First up not all fabric office chairs are offered in only choices of black or royal blue. It may seem like it when you visit many offices!

Fabric office chairs are ideal if you wish to colour coordinate with a room or match your seating with company branding colours.

The choice of fabric colours is literally endless. Some fabric office chairs are available in over 50 fabric colour choices. So whether you are looking for Paradise, Midnight or Sunset in your workplace, there is sure to be a colour for you.

Mesh vs Upholstered Fabric or Padded Office ChairMesh colours on the other hand are generally fairly limited. Black is widely available. So if you like black your on a winner.

Other colours like white, blue, grey, red, orange or green are available from certain manufacturers.

However, if you are looking for something a little different in colour then upholstered fabric office chairs will provide more choice.

So to summarise…. Mesh vs Upholstered Fabric or Padded Office Chair

Okay so in the comfort stakes both are fairly equal.

However if durability and something which will age well are important to you – choose mesh.

If a range of colour choices is required – opt for upholstered.

Finally if you are still struggling to decide then consider both fabric and mesh in one chair. Go for a padded office chair seat with mesh back.
