How to Choose The Best Desk Size for Your Workspace

Whether you’re at your standing desk for a few hours or a full work week, your workspace is a window into how you work. Your workspace can represent your personal style, your productivity levels, and even your occupation. It can be a simple setup in a small office, confined to a cubicle, or the design centerpiece of a home office. While the specifications and functionality of your desk frame are important, we often overlook the most prominent and aesthetically important element of our workspaces - the desktop.

Options for standing desk top surfaces range from inexpensive particle board to custom refurbished wood designs and everything in between. Finding a desktop that suits your needs and style can be tricky, so here are some tips on choosing the best desk size and surface for your individual needs.

Customize Your Standing Desk

1) Standing desk: size & shape

Your desktop’s size can really help or hinder your comfort and productivity. Take the daily tools and equipment you use while at your desk into consideration when choosing a desktop. A graphic designer working with dual monitors and a Wacom tablet is better suited for a larger surface space, so your work area doesn’t feel restricted. Alternatively, someone using a single thirteen inch laptop may feel that smaller is better, as having too much room can actually encourage clutter and distractions. It’s best to get a rough measurement of how much space your desk items will occupy and give yourself at least a few extra inches on each side.

Of course, even if you work with multiple monitors and other devices, that doesn’t necessarily mean you have the physical space for an expansive desktop. If you’re confined to a small space or cubicle, organizational tools like cable management, a filing cabinet, and monitor arms can help maximize your space.

StandDesk offers desktops in six different standard sizes:

  • 45 x 24 – This standing desk is perfect for small spaces, where your office doubles as your bedroom or in apartments.
  • 48 x 30 – A standard commercial office size small standing desk. The 30" inch depth offers enough room for monitors to be used behind your laptop.
  • 50 x 26A great size for a height adjustable standing desk when you need a little bit more width, without taking on more depth.
  • 60 x 26 – Even more width with this standing desk, allowing space for multiple laptops, notebooks or other work mini-stations so you can multitask without rearranging. 
  • 60 x 30Our other standard commercial office sized standing desk in large. If you're looking for an office-like size or buying for your company's office, this is the standard.
  • 72 x 30 – When you need all the space! Six full feet of width and the full 30" depth is a perfect standing desk for those of us can't have enough desktop real estate to stay productive and organized.

2) Sit-stand desk: color & material

It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the plethora of color options out there and it may seem like the material doesn’t really matter - after all, an inexpensive laminate desktop will technically work just as well as a beautiful, thick wood surface, right? Not necessarily.

For some, natural wood desktops may offer the calming, organic aesthetic that your office lacks. For those who don’t want to be limited to different shades of brown, laminate desktops (usually pressed board with a laminate covering) can be an inexpensive alternative.

StandDesk offers a variety of standing desk materials and color options:

Standing desk options include both laminate and solid wood. Black laminates and white laminates offer a clean, sleek and inexpensive style, but we're especially proud of our solid wood desktops. StandDesk solid wood desktops are available in more sizes and materials than any of our competition, and at lower prices.

Our reclaimed wood standing desk is our most popular seller and taps into the industrial chic trend perfectly. Our white oak and South American walnut sit-stand desk provide exceptional quality in a timeless aesthetic. And our natural bamboo stand desk not only looks terrific, but also offers a dry erase whiteboard coating.

3) Stand desk: style & functionality

Desktops of old were simply flat surfaces that you worked on. While simple tops are still functionally sound, it’s 2021 - if your desktop doesn’t have a few extra flourishes, you’re missing out.

StandDesk offers a variety of standing desk accessories:

For us, cable management and connectivity are must haves for a desktop surface. Nobody wants cords hanging off of the edges of the standing desk, and 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. Even better, StandDesk grommet plugs are available that offer AC and USB outlets, as well as cable management. No more bending down to find space on your power strip. You can also shop our standing desk chairsdesk matsfiling cabinetsdesk light, and monitor arms to achieve the ultimate sit-stand desk functionality.

      Yes, absolutely no regrets!

      I wanted to wait to make the review until I've used the desk for a while. It's been about a year since I purchased this in Feb 2021 (it is Feb 2022 now) and do not regret it at all. Standdesk was a bit cheaper than competitors + there was a sale going on .... I would not care to "upgrade" to any other desks that might cost more. This desk does exactly what it says it does, and has had no issues since I've bought it and used it nearly every single day. I am writing this review because my husband and I were trying to move this desk and tipped it sideways, ONTO the desk height buttons. It broke the plastic cover but the desk still moves up and down just fine. I am really glad the desk still works, and am logging onto this website to get additional accessories for it. Very happy with my purchase!! I plan on purchasing another Standdesk product if I can expand my desk area.

      Review for top only

      This review is for the 53x30 Portland top only. I bought the top, from the clearance page, to replace the 24x48x1 top that came on my standing desk, from another seller. I needed the 30" depth, but don't have room for 60" wide. The 53x30 fits the space perfectly and was not easy to find. The top is actually only 3/4 inch thick, not the one inch thick that I saw referenced. It has more flex than a one inch top would have but so far is only noticeable when moving the desk, so it's OK. The top is also pre-drilled, with holes that don't match my legs of course. I don't know if it was previously mounted on legs or what, but the holes are on the bottom so it doesn't matter much. The desk was delivered to Texas in about 10 days (free shipping option) which is reasonable, or better, I think. The only real complaint I have is that the original post-purchase email indicated they would let me know when it shipped. I never got notified when it shipped (yes, I checked junk mail) so I had to call and email them at the 8 day mark to ask when to expect it.

      Strong desk

      I am 6'4 and was worried that the desk wouldn't be sturdy when it was elevated tall enough for me. This thing is a rock! Very well made and I am just mad that I didn't pull the trigger sooner. I would highly recommend.
