Setting up your office chair properly is key to maintaining an ergonomic workspace, but it’s not always as simple as it sounds. Apartment Therapy suggests that the easiest way to quickly get your chair to the right height is to level the seat with your knees.

When you’re sitting in your chair, your feet should be flat on the floor with your knees at a 90-degree angle. So it makes sense that a quick way to figure this out is to simply stand in front of your chair, and then adjust the seat so it’s right below your kneecap. If you’re sharing a chair with a few people who always adjust it up or down, this is an easy way to get it right quickly. It’s also key if you’re ergonomically optimising your workspace.
