Sit Stand Desks and Converters, Our Favorite Five

As your home office begins to really take shape, it just might be time to consider a desk converter or a height adjustable desk. Desk converters and height adjustable desks allow you to easily change your work position from seated to standing. Research shows that standing several times during your work day can really improve the circulation in your legs and help prevent lower back issues that stem from long hours of seated work. Below we have put together a resource for you if you are considering a height adjustable work surface. When we set out to name our top five, we considered quality, durability, value, ease-of-use, and ergonomic design. I hope you find these recommendations to be helpful.
