Ideas To Buy Or Build Your Perfect Standing Desk
Automation is defined as using various control systems to operate equipment so that there is minimal human intervention. Progressive Automation can be used in office automation since users can upgrade from sitting desks to standing desks or even build a hybrid of both, which can be adjusted to be either through the touch of a button.
After you’ve tried to use a standing desk for yourself and you’ve come to the decision that you need a more permanent standing desk, the next option is to buy or build your desk for full-time use. Below are some options to buy or build a more professional standing desk.
You can choose to build a new standing desk from scratch. Building one from scratch is cheaper than buying one that is already professionally made. It gives you customization options well suited for you such as space restrictions, inclusions of shelves and drawers, or any other options you would want.
You can start your standing desk using two filing cabinets, a door and four milk crates. Such an example of a standing desk will cost you a fraction of a pre-built one, and give you more options than the one pre-built.
If you are limited for time and still want a standing desk, the only option left is buying one. Some great buying points for standing desks are outlined below.
To start, one of the options is the Fredrik from IKEA which is like the gold standard when it comes to standing desks. The FREDRIK is a simple standing desk. It is also adjustable and comes with a couple of accessories. Its price starts at $150 hence it is like the cheapest standing desk you’ll find around.
Ergotron can also customize a standing desk for you. An example is one that can attach to a normal desk, hence can be converted to a sitting/standing desk.
