#1. Look for adjustable heights. A good desk will be able to adjust to the height that you need it to be. This means that you can sit behind the desk if your legs need a break, but then raise it up to standing height to stretch the muscles out again.

#2. It should be a stable surface. There are some desks that are designed to be more like a drafting table than a desk. If the surface isn’t stable, then your electronics could be damaged when you move the desk into position. Look for a place to lock down the surface of the desk to have the best experience possible.

#3. There should be high quality hardware. Desks that allow for standing have a lot of extra stress placed on them, even if they don’t have adjustable heights. Strong alloys and durable materials should be the foundation of your new desk.


The best standing desks allow for you to move freely, yet still get work done every day. Consider adding a standing desk to your office today and you won’t be disappointed by the results.
