Three Things to Look for in an Affordable Standing Desk

Revamp your office, without breaking the bank.

If you’re looking to shake up your office space and get more activity into your workday with a standing desk, we’re here to help. Here’s what you need to know.

So Many Options

Sits on top of your current setup and comes in four sizes and two classic colorways. Amazon


The most affordable way to add a standing desk to your office space is to buy a converter or stand. These sit on top of your normal sitting desk, then add the desired height when you want to switch to standing. They’re a great way to try out standing if you’re not sure you want to commit to a whole new set up, or if you share your work space with others who would prefer to sit.

Manual Adjustments

Clean lines and a simple silhouette perfect for the modern office. Amazon


Most standing desks these days are adjustable, meaning you can take them from sitting to standing by turning a crank or, if the desk is motorized, pushing a button. It’s like getting two desks for the price of one.

Classic Look

A sturdy, fully motorized option with four memory presets to save your preferences. Amazon


If there will be more than one person sitting at your work station, it may be worth looking for a motorized standing desk with programmable presets that will remember your height preferences. Many high-end, pricey models include this feature but we’ve seen it in more affordable ones, too—it just takes a little more looking around.
