Life is movement for people and desks

The more you sit and stand, the more important it is that you do it right. Desks that let you sit, stand, or alternate between the two are essential. Ergonomic for your whole family too, because we’re all different.

How high should a computer desk be?

The standard height for a computer desk is between 19-27 inches. Within this range, most people should be able to find a height that fits.

Depending on how tall you are, and what kind of desk chair you use, you can determine which height is most comfortable for you. A few general guidelines for a good desk height are:

  • When sitting down, the desk should reach up to your elbows. You should be able to comfortably rest your arms on the surface in a roughly 90-degree angle.
  • Underneath the computer desk, you should have roughly 13-15 inches from the top of your knees to the bottom of the desk. And from the bottom of the desk to the floor it should be roughly 23 inches.
  • Remember that your height and your sitting position might influence your optimal desk height, but since ergonomics can go a long way in supporting your body and warding off fatigue, it’s worth spending a little time on
  • Try sitting by a desk or dinner table and measure the height to make a calculated choice.

What type of desks can I find at IKEA?

Everyone’s work, hobby and study are slightly different. Our computer desks reflect that very diversity, designed for different needs and preferences. At IKEA you’ll find gaming desks optimized for a gamer set-up, ergonomic office desks, space-saving corner desks and everything in between.

Many of our computer desks are height-adjustable, meaning you can switch between standing and sitting throughout the day. Other desks have collapsible tabletops, allowing you to adjust the surface space if your project gets messy with papers and stationery.
