10 Important Factors to Consider on How to Choose a Standing Desk


Standing desks have gained popularity due to their potential health benefits and the ability to promote an active work environment. However, with numerous options available in the market, choosing the right standing desk can be overwhelming. To make an informed decision, consider these ten important factors to help you choose a standing desk.

1. Height Adjustability:

Make sure the desk can be easily adjusted to suit your height preferences and provide a comfortable working position, whether you’re sitting or standing. Electric adjustability is the easiest way to adjust your standing desk.

2. Stability and Sturdiness:

A standing desk should be stable and sturdy to support your equipment and provide a secure work surface. Consider desks made from high-quality materials. Ergomotion® motiondesk® standing desks use electronics from Linak in Denmark and the rest of the desk is designed and manufactured in Australia.

3. Weight Capacity:

Check the weight capacity of the desk to ensure it can safely hold your equipment and other office essentials. A higher weight capacity is generally preferable, especially if you have multiple monitors or plan to add extra accessories.

4. Surface Area:

Evaluate the surface area of the sit stand up desk to ensure it offers sufficient space for your work setup, including monitors, documents, and other peripherals. Consider your workflow and the items you typically use to determine the appropriate desk size.

5. Ergonomics:

Look for features that promote good ergonomics, such as adjustable monitor arms, and cable management systems. These features can help you maintain a comfortable and healthy posture while working.

6. Ease of Use:

Consider how easy it is to operate the desk’s adjustment mechanisms. Look for desks with smooth and quiet height adjustments, as this will allow you to transition between sitting and standing positions effortlessly.

7. Assembly and Installation:

Check whether the desk comes with clear instructions and easy-to-follow assembly steps. Some desks may require professional assistance for installation, so factor in the additional costs or effort involved.

8. Aesthetics:

Consider the overall design and aesthetics of the desk to ensure it complements your workspace. Standing desks are available in various styles, materials, and finishes, allowing you to choose one that aligns with your personal preferences and existing décor.

9. Price and Value for Money:

Set a budget for your standing desk and explore options within that range. While price is a consideration, prioritize value for money by evaluating the desk‘s features, quality, and durability in relation to its cost.

10. Warranty and Customer Support:

Check the warranty offered by the manufacturer, as it reflects their confidence in the product’s quality. Additionally, research customer reviews and ratings to gauge the level of customer support provided by the company. Also check how long the company has been in business. The longer they have been in business and more confidence you will have in their products and customer support.


Choosing the right standing desk is crucial for your comfort, productivity, and overall well-being. By considering these ten factors – height adjustability, stability, weight capacity, surface area, ergonomics, ease of use, assembly, aesthetics, price, and warranty/customer support – you’ll be equipped to make an informed decision that meets your specific needs and preferences. Remember, investing in a quality standing desk is an investment in your health and work performance.

I purchased an EDesk this month from Ergomotion, and it was a remarkably smooth transaction. Guy was eager to answer all my questions before my purchase. As a first-time buyer of a standing desk, I truly appreciated how he addressed my queries with thorough details and provided options within my budget.

The delivery process was also smooth, despite a slight delay in the ETA. Guy ensured I received all necessary updates from the courier/removalist.

I've been using the desk for a couple of weeks now and I'm satisfied with it. It's sturdy on all height adjustments and the motor works as expected. I also like oak finish because it's clean-looking and suits my room setup.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and I'll definitely recommend Ergomotion to someone looking for their desk needs.

I've had an ergomotion desk for 10 years. It's still as good today as it was brand new. Over the years Guy has always responded promptly to any guidance I've needed (mostly help putting the desk back together after removalists take it apart).

I purchased the edesk from Guy at Ergomotion. Guy was a pleasure to deal with and the desk arrived the next day. Guy was highly knowledgeable on the desk and provided very prompt support on the installation. I can highly recommend Ergomotion.
