A Closer Look at Standing Desk Models and Designs

If you are looking for a sit stand desk in Canada, below are 4 of the top options that you will find.

Fixed Standing Desks

As the name implies, these are desks designed at a standing height. They’re higher with long legs, perfect for—you know it, standing. However, they don’t account for the need to shift between sitting and standing as you work, so you will need a “sitting desk” to complement this one. If you want a two-in-one desk that will cater to you standing or sitting, you may want to take a look at the next one.

Adjustable Standing Desks

Unlike fixed desks, an adjustable standing desk is one that you can use whether you are sitting or standing, thanks to the mechanism it comes with that allows for easy adjustment. When considering an adjustable sit stand desk, you can go for any of these options:

  • A Manually Adjustable Standing Desk comes with a hand crank that you can operate to adjust the desk height
  • An Electric Standing Desk has a built-in motor and a keypad that enables the desk to move up or down with a single button push

This is the most common type of standing desk available today and the most practical.

L-Shaped Standing Desks

These are a variety of the adjustable standing desk. The key difference between the regular standing desk and the L shape standing desk is the design—it’s built in the shape of the letter L. The advantage is that it offers more surface area and can be placed in the corner of the office. Practical, minimalist, and sleek!

Exercise Standing Desks

These desks are for those who take the need for an active life very seriously. These come in different varieties, the most common being the treadmill desk and the stationary bike desk. Exercise desks come with either of the following:

  • A treadmill so you can walk or run in place while working
  • A stationary bike so you can keep your legs moving even as you type away on your computer

These are not as common in offices yet, but they can be found in some home offices, preferred by hardcore fitness buffs.
