Why buy a Standing Desk?
Standing desks are also great for people who want to reduce the amount of time that they spend sitting down. According to recent studies, standing instead of sitting can actually improve your mood and make you more productive throughout the day. If this sounds like something you'd be interested in doing then standing desks may be worth looking into because there are many other benefits associated with them - including better posture, increased productivity levels etc. However before making a purchase it's important that you know what features matter most when buying standing desk otherwise you could end up purchasing one that doesn't meet your needs or expectations which will not only cost you money but also waste valuable time as well.
At the end of the day, standing desks are a great choice for anyone who spends more than half their work week sitting down. There is no question that standing can be healthier on your body and it certainly gives you an energy boost throughout the day as opposed to being lethargic from hours spent on a chair. When first starting out using a standing desk at home or in the office, there’s a lot of things to consider such as desired height range, surface area available, budget, etc. In this guide we have done some research so you don’t feel overwhelmed when making your purchase decision!
So without further ado let's get started!
Shape & Size
You'll find standing desks in all shapes and sizes, so it's important to consider the following before making a final purchase. Choose the height of standing desk you want. Varying heights are available to suit individual needs. The most common standing desks have a maximum height between 70cm to 120cm. However, some users may need higher or lower standing desks which must be custom ordered at an extra cost.
Determine your budget by considering all costs including shipping fees (if applicable), assembly fee (if needed) and any accessories you might like to include with the purchase such as anti fatigue matting. Cost can vary greatly and this is largely due to quality of the product. Cheaper standing desks are typically made from cheaper materials which will feel more flimsy, unsturdy and are likely to not last as long. If your budget permits, spend a little bit more and you will certainly find your standing desk will last a lot longer and feel much more premium.
Check out customer reviews on different products before making your decision. A good standing desk will have plenty of positive customer reviews.
Some standing desks, such as our Delux Height Adjustable Desk, are now including more smart technology such as timers to monitor how much time you are spending sitting. The desk then notifies you that you need to stand up and change your posture.
As standing desks become more popular, there are now oodles of options available to choose from. Be sure to do your research and purchase the right standing desk for your needs and budget.
