So without delay, we have picked the best sit-stand desks that can make you more productive at home.

Buying Guide: How We Picked These Desks

Working from home has lots of liberties. But it can also have challenges. Compared to a corporate setting, you have to be more in touch with what desk to use. You have to consider a lot of factors, the budget being one of the more deciding factors.

Our lists consist of both budget-friendly and premium options, so everyone gets to enjoy their slice of cake. We based our list on these factors.

Storage spaces and cabinets
In the office, filing cabinets, storage spaces, and drawers are often a given. You don’t have to worry about it.

The opposite goes with a WFH setting, you will do the interiors and decide which cabinet to buy or to buy an additional one at all. If you have limited space, that can pose a challenge.

The desks that offer additional storage can be space savers. So you will see that the desks on our lists contain cabinets and drawers that you can actually use.

This helps you be organized and prevent clutter and mess. A clean workstation can impact your mood a lot, a clutter-free desk can make you more productive and eager to work.

Easy to assemble
We’ve chosen units that are either very easy to set up or come in pre-assembled or fully assembled.

This means that you will be able to set up the desk by yourself. You won’t need the help of the office handyman, which you might not have access to in a WFH setting.

Solves Cable management issues
Aside from organizing small office supplies, our top picks will also make it easier for you to organize cables and wires. Stray wires and dangling cables can make your desk look like a mess and it will not really make you in the mood to work.

We Also Tried These Standing Desks

This is our honorable mention list.

These desks can still provide solutions for some folks who work from home, it’s just that we did not love them too much for some reason.

Seville Classics airLIFT

This is a pretty perky and sleek-looking desk that is perfect for a minimalist setup. The surface area is decent, not too large so it can serve you well if you have a basic to moderate setup.

The tempered glass makes it ideal for jotting down notes so you also save on scratch papers. The best selling point of this unit is the smooth adjustment. We were pretty impressed by that.

But when it comes to stability, we wished it were a bit more steady when set at the max height.  

Jarvis Bamboo Standing Desk by Herman Miller

This infamous standing desk has been a favorite of many.

Why not, it has this sleek style, a wide working area, and a beautiful tabletop to match. It also offers tons of customization options so you can cherry-pick the accessories.

But it does come at a higher cost. And most of the time, a steeply-priced desk is not the best idea when it comes to a WFH situation. It’s also not the most stable when used at the max height.

SHW standing desk

This is an entry-level unit for a very basic setup. It can be pretty stable when at the minimum setting, but it can shake when additional force is put into it.

Also, we wished it could offer more avenues to make a cleaner workstation or at least have storage spaces or cabinets to go with it. 

How We Tested These Standing Desks for WFH

Aside from being substantially stable, our parameters for this list included sit-stand desks that can offer more storage spaces or at least a decent number of built-in cabinets.  

So we had a team of testers with a minimalist setup, moderate to a busy workstation.

Even with a minimalist setup, it’s beneficial to at least have a single nook where you can put your pens and pencils in without them rolling to the floor. 

Make WFH work for you with a suitable standing desk

Working from home, despite lots of liberties, can also be challenging.

Getting that work mode on every single day is not that easy if you do not have a workspace that is conducive to working. And getting a decently stable desk is one of the fundamentals in setting up your very own home office.

Thus the need to get your hands on not just a desk that can fit into your home office, but one that can also help you resolve challenges encountered in a home environment.
