Community areas at standing height. Often we have quick meetings to touch base with our departments or our superiors to make sure everyone is on the same page. Do you go from sitting in your office chair to sitting in a conference room chair? What if instead, you had a community area that was standing height?

Within our office, we do just that. We recently redesigned our office and created 3 new community areas at standing height, allowing for a break from sitting without the need to replace every desk with electronic sit stand desks.

Not all sit-stand desks are the same. While you can get the top of the line desk with many added  features, there are varying options in that category as well. Some electronic, some counter balanced, and even some you crank manually. They vary in size, color, and mechanics so you can find the right one for you.
