Best Desks for Remote Workers

Updated January 2021

Home office desks today can be big, small, elevated, portable, and everything in between. If you spend lots of time in your home office, you might as well pick a desk that will serve you well for a while. Since each home office is different, we've aggregated desks of all types: standard, converter, and sit-stand. In this guide, we'll walk you through some of the best desks for every office size and budget - ordered by price. You'll notice most desks here allow you stand as well; it's an easy way to help ensure you're not slouching all day.



Before we start: this guide is AFFILIATE-FREE!  Unlike every modern list of "best items to buy," we're not getting paid to write good reviews and give recommendations. You can browse confidently knowing these are honest suggestions.

Ordered by Price: Low to High

For the more cost-conscious remote workers.

VersaDesk Sunrise Desk Riser: $99 (converter)
If space and budget are limited, and you already have a desk, this might be your best option to convert your station into a standing desk when you want. It's smaller than the average converter, but at $99 it's a bargain for the flexibility.

ReadyDesk 2: $149.99 (converter)
Readydesk cites "Scandinavian minimalism" as inspiration, and uses simple design and Birch wood to create several easy-to-assemble desk solutions. It's lightweight but will still support up to 75 lbs, making it a viable option if you want to keep your current desk but add a standing option

IKEA Linnmon/Alex: $190.99 (standard)
IKEA is known for value and this desk has plenty. It measures 59x29.5", which is wide enough for three monitors and deeper than a lot of desks. And that space on top may stay clear for you, because of all the storage that comes with the desk drawers holding the table up. The Alex desks - and other similar arrangements - are popular with gamers, as they're frequently seen on the r/Battlestations subreddit.

IKEA Bekant: $229 (standard)
I used one of these for a couple of years, and it stood up well; I only got a new desk because I moved. Like the IKEA desk listed above, it's one of the best values in this guide, considering that it's 63x31.5". Plus, it comes with an under-desk net, which makes the desk look a whole lot neater when you stow all your cords there.

VariDesk Pro Plus 30: $295 (converter)
Vari, formerly VariDesk, has a full line of converters and desks; this one is close to their entry level. It's compact and much more affordable than the larger converters; ideal for a small space that you want to add some height to, whether you're using a laptop with a small stand or keeping a monitor on top.

Fully Jarvis: $499+ (sit-stand)
The Jarvis is one of the most popular sit-stand desks on the market today, and for good reason: they have a huge range of desk options, they're easy to assemble, and the reviewers all rave about the quality. Whether you want a small laminate desktop or a large one made of wood, you'll get a long-lasting standing desk solution with the Jarvis.

Happen at Work: $599 (sit-stand)
In what can seem like a crowded sit-stand desk space, Happen's unique value proposition comes in the form of 2-minute, tool-free assembly. So if you're set on a sit-stand desk but you're the opposite of a boy scout, this might be the perfect option for you.

Uplift Desk V2: $599+ (sit-stand)
The Uplift Desk has been a leader in standing desks for a while now. Very similar to Fully, they have a wide range of options that could fit a variety of home office spaces and desktop needs. I've bought these twice and don't have any complaints.

Branch Standing Desk: $699+ (sit-stand)
The Branch offering is high quality across the board, but there are two things to call attention to. First, this standing desk goes higher than any I've seen - it fits people up to 6'8" comfortably. Second, they have packages with their chairs that allow you to save money when you buy a desk + chair.

Evodesk Limited: $973+ (sit-stand)
Evodesk was referred to as the "Lamborghini of standing desks" by Entrepreneur magazine. Their feature that stands out most among high-end, customizable standing desks, is the Bluetooth connectivity to iOS or Android devices. You can receive notifications and statistics on your phone, to set and track goals for standing vs. sitting during your workday. Check out their 3D Online Builder to see which combination is your favorite.

HerDesk: $1,097 (standard)
This is a desk that has obviously had a lot of thought put into it. The features just keep on coming: whiteboard desktop (you read that right!), wireless phone charging built into the desk, full-extension drawers, and a place to put a coaster and drink. As you may have guessed by the name, it's a woman-owned business, made with women in mind: read more about the founder, Dana, and the company origin here.

Mojo Executive: $1,249.99+ (sit-stand)
MojoDesk has a full line of sit-stand desks, but the Mojo Executive desk stands out. It has a unique L-shaped curve, zero bounce or wobble in the desk, and a beveled edge for wrist & forearm support. In addition to desks, they also have slick cable management solutions, and over a dozen add-on accessories.

Rocket Mission Evolve: $1,995+ (sit-stand)
Most of the popular sit-stand desks on the market are missing storage. Rocket Mission's line of desks addresses that. Their Evolve desk has three full drawers so you can keep your desktop as clear as possible. The Rocket Mission desks actually use the Jarvis adjustable base from Fully, but they also provide the option to only purchase the desktop, without the base - if you already have drawers or another stand for your desk.

Argosy Halo GE: $2,699.99+ (sit-stand)
Argosy makes some incredible workstations, often used by professional musicians and producers. But a few of their models are simple enough that any working professional could use them. The Halo GE has patented stabilization technology, a large surface, and compatibility with several accessories to make this a great investment. Standing desk height maxes out at 44", which is sufficient for most people, but worth testing out if you're tall.

Xdesk Porter: $4,485+ (sit-stand)
The Xdesk options are on the much higher end of the spectrum, and they ship in 30-40 days post-purchase, but they pride themselves on putting together some incredibly high quality furniture. The Porter and a couple other Xdesk models have a second level below the main platform, which allows for additional storage.

Argosy Aura 260S-N: $5,699.99+ (sit-stand)
This is one of the biggest and likely best of all standing desk options out there, with a price point to match. There are two space racks, one on each side, located underneath the spacious desktop. The surface is wider and deeper than most competing desks, and it has a wraparound design that puts you in the center of your workspace. With the ability to sit and stand, it should fit virtually any person's professional needs.

For the remote workers looking for the most bang for their buck, willing to invest in better equipment for the long haul.

For remote workers who don't want to compromise when it comes to their professional setup - or who have the largest stipends to spend!
