What's the Difference Between a Standing Desk Converter and a Lift Desk?, Symmes, Ohio

Every office needs a desk, and there are many styles available on the market. Standing desks are becoming especially popular among the health-conscious, as sitting all day long may promote medical problems. If you’d like one for your office, your next question might be whether you should go with a standing desk converter or a lift desk. Here’s a closer look at both types.

Standing Desk Converter

What makes a standing desk converter convenient is the fact that it can be used to update and lift the desk you already have, often for less money than buying a lift desk. That makes it handy if you love your desk and don’t want to replace it.

The converter can also be manually adjusted for multiple levels, depending on what makes you most comfortable. There’s also the option of placing one over a mobile file cabinet.

One big drawback is that converters have a relatively smaller surface area. They’re also more difficult to incorporate into a design scheme. Nevertheless, they’re the most common choice for office buildings that have implemented the desire of employees to stand while they work. 

Lift Desk

deskLift desks are built to neatly fit everything you need to work while allowing for manual or electrical adjustment of the entire desk to whatever level you need. In fact, the height settings of a motorized model can often be preset. This function makes it easy to mix sitting and standing into the workday. 

Many are big and durable enough to support the heavy weight of multiple monitors and any other tools or equipment you might need, including monitor arms. Because they take up no extra space compared to a traditional model, most home office workers prefer lift desks.
