A compact sit-to-stand desk that’s lightweight, mobile (peep those wheels), and folds in half so you can tuck it away for some extra space when not in use. All you small apartment dwellers, I’m looking at you!


Wayfair

An adjustable standing desk converter that’ll transform any table or desk into an ergonomic work station. Sit, stand, skip — work in a way that’s comfortable for you without the investment in a brand-new desk.


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “This is a great product, and it definitely outplays its price point. While I’ve only had it for about a week, the spring allows easy change in height. One of the primary reasons I bought this versus others was due to the low profile. It takes up less than one-fourth of my dining room table, which is a big hit with my spouse. My work sprawls far less since I can consolidate everything in this space. For those wondering about the height, dining room chair height is very comfortable with the keyboard location. And as someone who is 6-foot-1, I find the maximum height allows me to remain fully vertical, which was a big concern prior to this arriving. Overall about the happiest I’ve been with any of my most recent purchases over $100.” —Adam S.

Get it from Amazon for $99.87+ (available in two sizes and in four colors).

A manual standing desk so you can get all the usual health benefits without the high-price tag of similar electric models. Just twist the crank whenever you want to adjust the height and crank up your productivity!


amazon.com

Promising review: “This desk surpassed my expectations. For the money, I was expecting it to have at least a couple of problems. So far I’ve had none. Assembly was super easy and took only about 30 minutes tops. The crank smoothly raises and lowers the desk, despite the desktop being quite full of things, i.e. monitor, laptop, etc. To top it off, the desk itself is beautiful and looks like a much more expensive desk than what it really is. So glad I saved some money by going with this crank version rather than a motorized model which would have been much more pricey and, certainly, much harder to assemble.” —Brett

Get it from Amazon for $179.99 (available in five finishes).

An electric standing desk that’s got the easy, motorized movement without the usual bank-breaking cost. Plus, you can program four presets to ensure it’s at the right height for you every time.

Promising review: “Bought this desk for my wife. She was surprised to get this. Working from home and using the dining room table causes back and neck pain. The desk was very easy to put together (took approximately 30 minutes). With only one motor, movement is smooth. Easy to program settings. I would not put anything very heavy in the drawer, but it’s very handy and my wife loves it. The USB for phone cord on the controller switch is a great idea! So far she really likes it. There is enough room for the cat to lounge as well as ride up when the wife needs to stand. Wasn’t clear that the top of the desk is in two parts, but wife doesn’t seem to care. It has four memory settings which is nice.” —SCrisp

An adjustable laptop stand for anyone who needs a change of scenery throughout the day. You can bring this little stand with you anywhere to turn countertops and tables into a workspace that’s won’t have you and your back hitting the heating pad after work hours.


amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “I’ve tried so many similar products that wobble around. Even though I’m sure they’re steady, when your laptop is bouncing around a foot off the table, it’s a little disconcerting. Nulaxy did a great job of making this laptop stand 100% stable. It may not move with a fluid motion, but that adds to the stability that it offers. I would recommend this for anyone, especially those working at home during this time of COVID.” —Bil Moore

An electric desk converter that turns any run-of-the-mill table into a motorized standing desk that can support up to 55 pounds. So for all you dual monitor-lovers — this thing’s got you covered.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I could not be happier with this desk riser. It comes out of the box already put together which to me is one of its biggest strengths. The materials feel high-quality and the desk couldn’t be easier to operate. I like the additional removable shelf for your keyboard and you can take it off if you don’t want to use it. This thing does exactly what it says it will and does so flawlessly. Lastly, it’s just the right size, not too big not too small. Although I will say my monitor and laptop just fit on it. I highly recommend this brand if you’re in the market for a standing desk.” —Dylan

The desk, which has white legs and a dark walnut table


Knoll

BuzzFeed editor Melanie Aman loves hers. In her own workds:

“I love this desk. Until quite recently, I’d been working either on the couch (which hurt my back, neck, and wrists), in my bed (which made me want to nap every five minutes), or at a tiny kitchen table (which was only large enough for my laptop). Now that I have this bad boy, I have room for my work laptop, a 27-inch monitor, and my ginormous 17-inch laptop, plus space for snacks, my water bottle, random chargers, and my office supplies. On top of that, I can easily adjust its height if I’m ever tired of sitting and need a new view. I cannot stress how much this desk has increased my productivity and made working from home…actually…enjoyable.”

Promising review: “We’re in the middle of moving and I’ll be desk-less for a month. This is compact enough to fit in my suitcase, it’s sturdy and works wonders for my laptop and monitor set up. The only downfall is the mouse pad is a little small. Outside of that it’s amazing for the price and would highly recommend it.” —Beatriz Garcia

Fully

Promising review: “Right when our stay-at-home orders started in California, I knew I needed a new desk. Other sit/stand desks didn’t go as low as I needed them to for good ergonomic support. This one did and after having used it for several weeks, I absolutely love it. It feels and looks very solid, the construction and aesthetics are great. Motors work great together. No wobble. Customer service was also amazing. Very minor changes I needed were shipped immediately and addressed to my full satisfaction with minimal effort on my part.” —Derick

A good-looking height-adjustable desk that won’t mess with your carefully curated decor if you don’t have the luxury (like so many of us) of having a designated home office room. In the wise words of Tim Gunn, we all just have to “make it work.”


Birch Lane

Reviewers note that the crank is pretty heavy and somewhat difficult to adjust. If you like to change the height several times throughout the day, this desk might not be for you!

Promising review: “Love this desk! I wanted a bit more of an authentic look, rather than a modern desk and this fits the bill. I bought it because the height is adjustable and not so much as a standing desk. The crank is pretty heavy and I wouldn’t recommend this as a desk that has to move up and down all the time.” —Wouter

Get it from Birch Lane for $422 (originally $599.99).
