If you don’t want to completely replace your workstation, or you’re interested in taking time to both sit and stand, the Veridesk Pro is a great option that sits on top of your current desk so there’s no need to replace the entire thing. The stand has room for two monitors and a little extra space for your keyboard, and is completely adjustable. Image courtesy of verideskpro.com.
As a flagship product for Ergotron, the Workfit is a fully customizable workstation that allows you to adjust the height and position of your workspace. While Ergotron’s products aren’t motorized for the most part, moving the station without knocking over monitors or keyboards is easy and smooth. Image courtesy of ergotron.com.
DIY options are limitless and completely up to you. You can stack shelves on top of your existing desk or create a stand for your monitors and keyboards. The price is also completely up to you, depending on the types of materials you choose to use. We do recommend stabilizing any stacking units or stands, though. Image courtesy of lifehacker.com.
