Standing Desk Storage

FlexiSpot Theodore

The one big disadvantage of giving up your old sitting desk for a new height-adjustable standing desk is losing your drawer space. In fact, it’s one of the biggest reasons that many people go for a standing desk converter instead of swapping out their entire desk.

There are several historical reasons that you still don’t see drawers on standing desks too often. Chiefly, these have to do with the significant amount of weight that would be added by attaching wooden drawers to a wooden desktop, space constraints underneath the desktop of typical standing desks, the cost of fabrication (and the added shipping weight), and the strain that the added weight of a drawer(s) might place on the sensitive lifting columns mechanisms.

This is gradually changing as more and more standing desk storage offerings reach the market, and hence the creation of the Standing Desk Storage Reviews round-up. We have scoured the market to identify the most practical drawers and file cabinets specifically designed for standing desks, compared their specs, and lab tested several of them in the initial establishment of this important new standing desk accessories category.
