Full Size Standing Desks v. Standing Desk Converters

Happy New Year and Happy Health Month! This is an exciting time of year, full of positive changes. For many workers, this means transitioning to a standing desk or desk converter. If you're considering buying one, you may be facing a question of exactly what to get. Do you opt for a full size standing desk or a standing desk converter? What's the difference? How do you choose?

Full Size Standing Desk vs. Standing Desk Converter

The difference is pretty simple, and it's all in the name. A full size standing desk is a complete replacement of your current desk, while a standing desk converter sits on top of a desk or tabletop to turn any existing work surface into a standing desk solution! In choosing which is right for you, ask yourself: Are you looking to replace your current desk, or just add onto it?

Full Size Standing Desk Perks

With one flat surface that raises up and down, a full size standing desk is a great option for people who want to stand and spread out. An example of an easy-to-use, straightforward full size standing desk is Stand Steady's Tranzendesk 55" Crank Adjustable Standing Desk. If you're looking for a complete makeover and want an expansive height-adjustable surface, a full size standing desk is perfect for you. It's also very easy to add on a shelf or keyboard tray to turn your full size standing desk into a two-level ergonomic workspace, and many of these options are available as a bundle!

Another perk of a full size standing desk is having a durable and sturdy work surface. When assembled correctly and observing the listed weight limit, any Stand Steady full size standing desk offers a standing surface that won't tip, wobble, or bow in the center. While standing desk converters on their own are sturdy, too, they do rely on the desk they're placed upon as a foundation. With a full size desk, you don't have to worry about if your existing desk is in good shape, because you're replacing your existing desk entirely!

Standing Desk Converter Perks

Standing desk converters, also referred to as sit-stand desk converters, turn any existing work surface into a standing desk solution! These converters are usually pre-assembled (or come together in 15 minutes or less) and simply get placed on top of your desk. Then you're ready to go! A bestselling example of a standing desk converter is the X-Elite Pro by Stand Steady, loved by office workers for its quick and easy setup. If you're not ready to part with your desk or you work in an office that doesn't allow for large-scale modifications, you'll love a standing desk converter.

An added bonus of having a standing desk converter is the (generally) lower price. Most sit-stand converters are less expensive than their full size counterparts, making them a great option for offices looking to provide standing solutions for the entire team. And because many of these converters require no assembly, office workers can simply take them out of the box and get working right away. Because let's be honest, your average desk worker isn't likely to have a spare screwdriver or the space to spread out and assemble a 55 inch desk.
