How to choose your standing desk converter

Here are a few tips to guide you on how to choose your standing desk converter for your workstation.

Picking the Right Computer Desk for Small Apartments

Remote work was already a growing trend, but the coronavirus pandemic has now made it the norm. For some office workers the change will be temporary; for others, it may become permanent. Either way, a comfortable home office workstation is vital, but it can be tricky to find the space in which to set it up. In particular, workers may have trouble finding the right computer desk for small apartments. Fortunately, there are some creative options. Here are several small apartment desk ideas that will help to maximize space utilization.

Floating Desk 

As you might have guessed from the name, a floating desk is not a piece of freestanding furniture taking up floor space but a desk surface attached to a wall. It can be as small and simple as a 1’ x 2’ plank of wood attached to the wall with brackets. Borrow a chair from the kitchen table and you have a simple, space-saving, cost-effective home workstation.

Some floating desks fold away, sitting perpendicular to the wall when in use and folding up parallel to the wall when stored, including supportive legs that also fold in neatly for storage. Other floating desks can be more furniture-like – for example, on a ladder shelf that’s anchored to a wall, small high shelves function as decorative storage and a deeper table-height shelf can be used as a desk surface.

If you need storage for paper files or other items, look for a floating desk that has cabinets or cubbies mounted underneath on one or both sides. Additional features you can find on floating desks include pull-out keyboard and mouse trays and hidden cable management.

Alcove Workstation 

Think about the layout of your apartment. Do you have a small space that doesn’t lend itself naturally to another use? You might be able to turn it into a cozy office by creating an alcove workstation. Perhaps there’s a narrow extension off the living room that leads to a window view or some open space underneath a

Motorized AlcoveRiser Standing Desk Converters

Let's find out. Is the Motorized AlcoveRiser Standing Desk Converters EM7MB - 36" the right fit for you?

It's 3 pm. You've been in the same position for about three hours, and you know it isn't supposed to hurt this much, but it does. You try to complete the spreadsheet you're working on, but you can't just ignore your spine hurting. So you do the reasonable thing.

You stand up and stretch for a little. However, that makes you look like a total oddball because everyone else is doing precisely not that. Then you sit down back, but your back hurts. You really just want to stand over your computer to work, but you can't, because your desk is low.

If you've ever been in this position or something like it, you might be interested in trying out a sit-stand desk or standing desk converter. Simply put, it's a desk that allows you to work sitting down as well as standing up. Experts have pointed out that sitting down for long periods isn't necessarily great for the back, and standing during work can eliminate a lot of spine problems.

In the spirit of the health benefits of using stand up desks, we'll be reviewing the Motorized AlcoveRiser Standing Desk Converters EM7MB - 36" to see it's important features and whether you should consider getting it or not.

Key Features of the Motorized AlcoveRiser

  • Many other standing desks have hydraulics or mechanics that require effort from the users to lift, but the Flexispot EM7 is motorised. This means that you only need to push a button to get it to rise. So while traditional desk users
