I've been decorating my bedroom. I have been trying to find a great chair - one that is very comfortable, looks stylish, is height adjustable, tilt adjustable, has adjustable armrests yet
is cheap.

I've bought the GT Atom Black Edition gaming chair (https://www.abroco.com/products/gami...-black-edition).

The reason I bought this was because I tried looking for so long but couldn't find anything that met my requirements. For a gaming chair it's on the cheap end but for my budget, it's waay over but since I had no choice I bought it.

Now there's only 2 problems with this chair. Firstly, it's too high. It's 50cm high from the ground in its lowest position. Only the balls of my feet touch the ground. Secondly, I find that the armrests are too wide apart even when I've adjusted them to be as close as possible to me.

My dad reckons I should just buy a footrest. However, the way I see it is that if I've spent all this money on a chair, I want it to do what I want. Especially since I'll be spending loads of hours on my computer doing work and then other countless hours gaming. I wanted a chair that did both and made me sit in the correct posture.

Should I return the chair and keep looking or not? Is it better for me to just get a footrest and live with the armrests?

I've tried looking for chairs but it's hard. I've even tried looking for chairs for petite people. I'm in between 5"6 & 5"7. Most chairs I've looked at are a minium height of 50ish give or take. FOr the ideal height, I would want it at 43cm (max 45 if I absolutely had to).

That's the norm. People get footrests. I've always just used a pile of VHS tapes. :lol: As long as it's the right height for your keyboard and mouse at your desk.

On the same subject, chances are you'll needed your monitor higher than desk height too. No VHS tapes this time, that's when you use old books!

I see. I managed to find the GT Omega on another thread, they seem to b built short which is great.

As for the Screen I don't need to worry about that because I'm going to hang it up on the wall. Thanks anyway

I looked at those. Unfortuanly they are out of my budget. I managed to find the GT Omega. They're still slightly pricy but cheaper than th DXracer

I'm thinking of buying new gaming chair or recliner too. I found reviews about alternative to gaming chair recently and want to order a recliner for my gaming sessions. I read that GTRACING is one of the best brands.

I actually started getting discomfort with my old gaming chair or office chair and I'm looking to buy a new office chair for myself. Had checked several reviews online and hbada ergonomic chair is attracting my eyes. Soon will order it and get it delivered to my home.
