A desk with a lifting top – what do you need to know before buying?

A desk with a lifting top is one of the most functional pieces of furniture of the 21st century. It promotes comfortable and efficient work, and its operation is simple. No wonder that more and more office workers are considering purchasing it. However, for the furniture to be functional, it is worth knowing what to pay attention to when buying...

The average office worker spends approximately 7 hours a day at their desk. That's almost 1/3 of a day, and ultimately even 10 years of your professional career.

This is a lot, so it is worth ensuring that the workplace is ergonomic.

The solution is electric desks , which facilitate comfortable work and protect the body against occupational symptoms and diseases.

However, there is no reason to expect that the first piece of furniture you buy in a discount store will be good despite its height adjustment.

So what should you check before purchasing?

A desk from a supermarket and a branded desk store…

You don't have to look hard to see the difference between discount and branded desks. Just look at one of the most important functions of this furniture – the height range.

A typical discount counter usually offers a minimum countertop height of 70 cm. This is definitely too high even for a person 175 cm+ tall.

In order to compensate for the "deficiencies" of the desk, we raise the height of the chair, causing pressure on the thighs, which ultimately leads to incorrect posture at the desk.

Since we are investing in furniture that is supposed to help maintain correct posture, we must not make such a simple mistake.

What to do in that case?

Of course, choose a desk with a lifting top and a wider range of heights.

Deskwise desks are adjustable in the range of 596 – 1270 mm!

But that's not all!

What should you pay attention to when buying a desk with a lifting top?

By investing in such furniture, we are investing indirectly in our health. However, provided that it supports health.

So if you want your desk to actually improve your work, check if it has:

  • Automatic tabletop adjustment from the application or a button on the tabletop.
  • Low-failure motor system for lifting the desk.
  • Stable construction - solid legs connected to the tabletop with durable joints.
  • High maximum load – minimum 120 kg.

This type of facilities bring many benefits, such as:

  • Improving the natural body posture
  • Improved concentration
  • More energy
  • Significant decrease in the lazy effect
  • Reduction of sedentary work time
  • Ergonomics and adaptation to your height
  • Movement means better functioning of the heart and blood supply to the whole body


Although promotions for electric desks in discount stores are tempting, before purchasing, it is worth thinking twice whether such a choice will not be the proverbial "waste of money."
