Whether you work from home, have a hybrid schedule or are heading back to the office, finding the best standing desk can make a difference in improving your health and helping you move more throughout the day. Harvard Health Publishing points out that while claims of weight loss are unproven, standing desks can encourage you to change your posture more frequently and thus potentially decrease the risk of back and shoulder pain.
With tons of standing desk options, it can be overwhelming to find out which model or brand makes the most sense for you, your space and your work style. That’s why we’ve rounded up a list of some of the best standing desks on the market.
From the top-rated adjustable electric desks and furniture designed for multiple portable monitors (an ideal setup for video editors and gamers) to laptop-friendly workstations that save space in dorms and apartments, here are the top options for every work-from-home lifestyle.
1. Flexispot E1 Pro Standing Desk

Adjust your desk height with speed when you post up on Flexispot’s E1 Pro electric standing desk. Available in widths from 42 to 60 inches and depths of 24 to 30 inches, this adjustable table offers options that let you use two monitors and a laptop. The electric adjustable lift system also lets you change from sitting to standing, adding more flexibility (and hopefully more productivity) throughout your day, while the built-in keypad lets you program four height pre-sets.
We like that you can customize everything from the desktop and frame colors, and add on an ergonomic chair, under-desk bike chair, monitor arms, laptop stands and other accessories at a discount.
