Full Desk vs. Desktop Solution

Buying the best standing desk solution for your workspace can seem challenging when there are so many different sizes and models to choose from. One easy way to quickly narrow the playing field is to decide whether you want to replace your current desk with a full size standing desk or if you’d rather buy a desktop solution that sits on top of the desk you already have. Let’s take a look at a few of the features and benefits of both types:

With a full size standing desk you get:


  • A whole new desk
  • If you’re not too attached to the desk you already have or if you don’t have a desk at all, this gives you an all-in-one solution.

  • Plenty of room for everything
  • If you need room to spread out, work with multiple monitors or need space for extra hardware, you’ll have a lot more real estate to work with. A full size standing desk will also hold more weight than a desktop model.

  • A stylish new piece of furniture
  • Since they don’t have to work with an existing desk, full size standing desks are designed from top to bottom to be sleek and stylish to complement your workspace.

With a standing desktop solution you can:


  • Keep your current desk
  • If you already have a desk you like and want to keep it simple, this solution lets you do just that. Just make sure you measure your existing desk first so you can buy the standing desk solution that best fits your workspace.

  • Save time and money
  • Desktop models carry a smaller price tag than full size models, plus there’s no need to buy a whole new desk or pay anyone to assemble or install anything. Every desktop model from VARIDESK comes fully assembled and ready to use. Just unbox it and go.

  • Stay flexible
  • When it’s time to move, change or grow, desktop models are much easier to take with you. They also give you more options for the size, location and configuration of your workspace. The most compact VARIDESK models are lightweight and easy to carry, so they’re perfect for mobile workers and coworking spaces.

Keep in mind that the best standing desk is always the one that meets your specific needs, fits your budget and helps you work comfortably. The model may differ from person to person, but everyone wants a quality product at a reasonable price from a brand they trust.
