The Complete Sit Stand Desk Buyer's Guide

If you're in the market for a standing desk or ergonomic workstation, you've probably realized that the number of choices you have is overwhelming. With so many brands and styles out there, it can be really difficult to choose. Luckily, we put together this buyers guide to make it easy!

The 3 Basic Categories:

We like to break down standing desks and workstations into three different categories:

  • Devices That Attach to Your Current Desk (converters)
  • The Basic Adjustable Sit Stand Desk
  • The Treadmill Desk
  • Complete Ergonomic Workstation Bundles
  • BONUS CATEGORY: Ergonomic Stools

As you may have guessed, the above list was purposely ordered according to the approximate price of each category.

Standing Desk Converters

The InMovement Elevate Desktop ($299)

For those on a budget who don't want to replace their current desk, a standing desk converter is going to be the optimal choice. They easily attach to any normal desk and easily move up and down whether you decide to sit or stand. They generally range from $299 - $550. Many people find this to be the easiest and most affordable option for them. You get all the benefits of a standing desk without any of the fuss of moving furniture or breaking the bank.

There are even models reserved for the most advanced computer user. If you use multiple monitors the CLIMB2 by ESI Ergonomics is a great pickup!

The Basic Adjustable Sit Stand Desks

The Apex Desk 71" Series in Red Cherry

If you're trying to replace your current desk and get a whole new setup, then it makes sense to purchase an entire sit stand desk. Depending on your work space, there's a lot of different sizes to choose from. There's also two different styles: electric and manual.

Manual Adjustable Desks

Just because something is manually adjustable this does not mean its lacking quality. Many people associate something non-electronic with low-quality, but we can assure you that this is not the case. In fact, there are actually several advantages to having a a manual adjustable desk such as:

  • You don't need to take up any more outlet space.
  • You don't have to worry about motor failure even after decades of use.

For those who are budget minded or have limited space, we highly recommend considering one of our adjustable desks from Unique Furniture.

Not only are these desks extremely affordable, but they also have a ton of utility. All of them come on wheels meaning that you can move around to different areas of a room or the same floor without picking up the desk.

Finally, they all adjust really easily with the pull of a lever. The entire experience could not get more convenient. 

Electric Adjustable Desks

When it comes to electric adjustable desks, Apex Desk is the market leader in our opinion. They have reliable motors and come in a wide variety of sizes including:

The 48" Vortex Series

The 60" Vortex Series

The 71" Elite Series
