If you’re considering a standing desk but not sure of the best dimensions, we have some important suggestions to keep in mind.
Selecting the most dynamic dimensions for your stand-up desk is essential in creating a healthy, happy, and productive working environment. Most modern-day workers don’t have much time to spare for this humble task, so we’re here to help.
The decision is important. Here, we’ll explain the best stand-up desk dimensions for you.
The height of your stand-up desk is the most important dimension with perfect posture in mind.
An adjustable height standing desk is even better, as they are suitable for all from small to tall.
No single formula can determine the exact best height for your standing desk, but the following is a healthy start:
The rest is fine-tuning. Trust your body. Acknowledge and adjust if any unnecessary tension develops to find your perfect personal preferences.
When figuring out what size standing desk you need, there are a few questions you should ask yourself.
What is it that you want or need on your desk? A single serving of sushi or a laptop, mouse, and your favourite Thesaurus?
The width is probably the most practically orientated dimension, and ideally, your keyboard, mouse, and green tea would all be equals. Or at least on the same level.
Desktop converters start at a width of about 70cm, but the final answer lies somewhere between the space you have and the space you need.
UpDown Desk offers customized desktops in the following widths: 105cm, 120cm, 150cm, and 180cm.
Keep in mind that a laptop screen is usually tilted slightly backward if working at a wall-mounted standing desk.
With most laptops having a depth of about 28cm, 75cm could comfortably accommodate two people working across each other at the same desk.
Two heads are better than one. Even if it’s a single desk-trouble.
We all have different proportions and needs. Trust the ultimate dimension you’re in, for the journey that you’re on.
Keeping your working environment stable and able to adjust in the long run lends itself to a bigger is the better approach.
Should you prefer to keep your existing desktop, we would recommend the UpDown Desk PRO Series Standing Desk Frame.
This is the most ergonomic option available as it offers unrivalled stability at a height range between 61.5cm and 127cm excluding desktop and is suitable for desktop dimensions with a depth of 60cm - 100cm and a width of 105cm – 240cm.
The Best Corner Desk option would be the UpDown Desk PRO Series Electric Corner Standing Desk (or frame with your existing corner desktop) or the Ergotron WorkFit Corner Sit-Stand Workstation.
And if you have something bigger and better in mind? Design your own large stand-up desk using the new 3D Bespoke Desk Configurator.
