We look for the best standing desks around. What features you can get and at what price points. Just because you are at home doesn't mean that you can't use a standing desk.
Why use a standing desk? It's a good question as they aren't exactly intuitive and don't sound like much fun at all!
In short it's unhealthy to remain in any position for any length of time. Sleeping we naturally move too. Really break up your working day and avoid spending long periods in one position. A standing desk is an ideal way to alternate the way you work- you will never look back.
Firstly do not stand all day either. This is not the suggestion. The idea is to alternate your working position. And so this is also why a manual crank standing desk is not recommended. You will find it tedious and won't do it. Opt for an electrical standing desk!
1) Make sure the desk is electrical and is quick to get into position
This will ensure that you use it!
2) Opt for at least 2 memory positions (sitting and standing)
This means you can simply decide to stand up working for a while and press the button. The desk will then automatically start to rise into position.
3) Look for a guarantee
Home office space supplies standing desks with a guarantee.
4) Look for one that has a strong motor
Make sure the desk can lift a significant weight around 80kgs. This is important because the motor will not burn out.
5) Look for a supplier who offers a fast delivery.
This will ensure that you are dealing with a specialist supplier such as Home Office Space.
