How Much Does an Ergonomic Chair Cost Per Day Over 5 Years?

How Much Does an Ergonomic Chair Cost Per Day Over 5 Years?

It can be (and typically is) overwhelming to buy any piece of office furniture or equipment, especially when it seems to be a large upfront cost that is applicable. This rings true especially when it comes to investment pieces such as an ergonomic office chair, with upfront costs spanning rom R 3 500.00 all the way to R 10 000.00 for exclusive, high-end ergonomic office chairs.

There’s a far more logical way to look at this type of cost, and that is to calculate it the same way you might on a coffee machine, for example, on how much each cup of coffee would cost.

Price Per Day – Ergonomic Office Chair

The easiest way to determine how much an office chair costs to use per day is as follows:

  • Year of 365 days, of which 250 are typically working days (in South Africa)
  • Multiply 250 days x 5 to reflect 5 years = 1 250 days
  • Total cost of chair divided by 1 250 days


When we work out the cost per day in this way, it helps us break down and incorporate the cost of furniture into daily overheads. Also, it seems a far more achievable task when it’s considered in this amount.
