How To Find the Correct Desk Height?

Do you know that desk height can have a profound effect on your life? The height of your desk can strongly influence your posture, health, and productivity. Through determining the right desk height, you can avoid various negative consequences such as joint pain, back injuries, and more.

How to find the correct desk height?

1 Position at desk: sitting

Adjust the armrests of your chair so that the arms are supported at a right angle which should be around 90-110°. Do not raise your shoulders and neck, which causes muscle tension. Measure the distance from the top of the armrest to the floor. This measurement is your individual desk-height which should be adjusted.

2 Position at desk: standing

Stand up and put your hands on the keyboard, check an angle at your elbow - it should be around 90-110° , do not raise your shoulders and neck. Measure the distance from the table top to the floor. This measurement is your individual desk-height.


3 The ideal desk height calculator

Above are 2 direct ways to help you measure your individual desk height, and there is a free tool that allows you to easily and quickly calculate your ideal desk and chair height. All you need to do is to provide your height in centimeters and indicate whether you want it to calculate for a sitting or standing position.

If you choose the height calculator’s sitting option, it will generate results on your ideal chair, desk and monitor heights. It also functions as a stand-up desk height calculator, providing recommendations on your ideal desk and monitor height.


You can use this information as a basis if you are using ergonomic facilities. This way, you can achieve the optimum workspace setup based on the calculations generated by the desk height calculator.
