Standing Desks


What is a Standing Desk?

It's simply a desk which is high enough to enable you to work standing up.


Why would I want a Standing Desk?

First of all, it's a more economical alternative to a treadmill desk. Rather than walking on a moving belt, you simply stand up at your desk.

Secondly, although you wouldn't actually be moving (unlike the treadmill desk) a standup desk is still considered to have more health benefits than a traditional sit-down desk.


How much are Standing Desks in the UK?

There's a range of standing desks on the market. Some are static. Some go up and down at the press of a button. Some even brew the tea (only joking!).

Models and prices range from the simple (and relatively inexpensive at around £35) to the much more complex (at around £800).

Check out our comparison table below.
