Choosing Your Standing Desk

Choosing a traditional desk is tricky enough, but when you add other things to consider, like the features of a standing desk, the decision is even harder! The Ergo Desks team is always on-hand to answer any questions you might have about our products, but we’ve added some things you might want to consider in to this blog.

We’re Going to Need a Bigger Desk…

This isn’t an issue unique to standing desks, but naturally, size is a crucial factor to consider when buying a desk for your home or office. Firstly, you need to consider the size of your office space – how big a desk can you actually fit without it being an inconvenience?

Secondly, you need to consider how much desk space you actually need. If you tend to work entirely on your computer with a few paper documents and files to deal with, you probably don’t need a vast amount of real estate. Suppose you continuously have various files, printers, products, and other office materials on your desk. In that case, you will probably need something bigger – or indeed if your particular job requires significant space for drawing and so on.

For more size-limited domestic settings, our Atlas Mini standing desk is a fantastic budget-friendly option.

The Liberty standing desk is an excellent option for the average person with plenty of room for the average desk worker.

The Atlas Corner provides a huge space where you can quickly swivel between two setups or simply store printers and other office machines close-at-hand!

Automated v The Old-Fashioned Way

All of our desks are adjustable, meaning you won’t be forced to stand permanently when you take up the standing desk lifestyle. This makes the shift much more accessible for people by providing all of the health and productivity benefits without unnecessary discomfort.

You have two options when it comes to adjusting your desk to your desired height – you can either turn a crank manually to raise and lower the desk or just click a button to make an electric motor shift to your desired height automatically.

Naturally, the electric option is slightly more expensive but much more convenient – especially if multiple people will be working at the desk. Each person can have their profile to get the desk to move to their desired height.

However, the manual option is hardly a major effort – the handle turns very smoothly, so you won’t have to wrestle with it to get it up and down as you see fit.

Have it Assembled or DIY?

One final thing to consider is whether or not you want to build the deck yourself. We should state straight away that it is a very simple process, and many of our customers have got in touch to tell us just how relieved they were at the straightforward instructions.
