How to Choose the Right Standing Desk

  • 3 min read

It's important to think about the desktop as much more than just a place for your computer and monitor. From small offices with simple setups, all way up into our homes where design plays an integral part; seeing how people work can give insights on what type of lifestyle they lead which in turn shapes their approach to work, too. This is especially true as more and more of us work from home.

Finding asit stand desk that suits your needs and style is not an easy task. However, the following tips can help you find what exactly it is about this modern-day office furniture item that makes them so coveted among many people who work from home or have their own business on location instead of in one spot all day long: 

What Size Standing Desk Should I Use?

When choosing a desktop, it’s important to take the size and shape of yourstand up desk into consideration. A graphic designer might want something big like an oak table with ample space for sketching out ideas or making layouts; alternatively, someone using just one thirteen inch laptop may feel that smaller is better because too much free space can actually encourage clutter and distractions in their work environment--especially if they have other items such as piles upon stacks bookshelves across from them! It pays off during these tough times by getting yourself at least 3"-4" extra all around on each side when shopping so you don't end up regretting buying asit stand desk that looks good but isn't usable.

If you work in a small space or cubicle, there are tons of ways to maximize your desktop. You can use organizational tools like cable management and filing cabinets with monitor arms for extra elbow room.

What Colors and Materials Should I Choose?

For those who want a more natural-lookingstand up desk, natural wood desks provide a soothing and organic feel. However for some people the limitations of only being able to choose from one or two shades is too limiting - laminate desktops offer an inexpensive alternative that allows you to customize your desktop with different colors!


Laminate desktops may seem like a cheaper alternative to natural wood. But they're not necessarily as good for your office's aesthetic and environment, considering the pressurized material will wear down over time while laminated surfaces can peel or bubble with minimal effort from water exposure in some cases.


StandDesk provides a variety of standing desk options in both laminate and solid wood. Black laminates are sleek, while white ones offer clean style at an inexpensive price! Our real standouts though? The wide selection for you to choose from - including a huge variation in sizes - will fit your needs, plus competitive, affordable prices.

What Kind of Functionality Should I Look For? 

Desktops of old were simply flat surfaces that you worked on. While simple tops are still functionally sound, if yourstand up desk doesn’t have a few extra flourishes, you’re missing out.


With StandDesk's cable management grommet plugs, you can solve the problem of cords dangling off your desk and power strip placement with ease. Something as simple as grommet holes in the top corners of your desktop can easily solve this issue–you can feed cords from your devices through the holes and out of sight. 


The ultimate in functionality is theadjustable standing desk that lets you change the elevation of your desktop with the push of a button. A motorized, fully-electronic system like StandDesk’sstand up desk could be just what the doctor ordered.
