How to find the ideal desk height

If you’re in the market for a new desk, there is one key factor you should consider before buying: desk height. Many people overlook this but keeping it in mind may be the key to your everyday comfort.


Ergonomically correct office furniture can prevent chronic strain. Not to mention, the additional comfort can help make you more productive.


In order to make sure a desk is the ideal height for you, you should:

  • Sit down in the position you’d be in while using the desk
  • Rest your arms at your sides
  • Bend your elbow at a 90 degree angle keeping your upper arms in line with your torso

If the desk is a good fit, your arms should rest comfortably on the surface. Another solution, if the desk still doesn’t fit quite right, is to adjust your chair height or try a desk with a pullout keyboard drawer.


Using a desk that is the ideal height can save you a lot of unnecessary discomfort, including potential chronic back problems. So, putting in a little time and effort to find the perfect desk is typically worth it.
