Stand Up Desk Ikea


Stand Up Desk From Ikea

Without knowing, I’ve become part of the stand up desk movement. Having some back issues off and on for a number of years my back has been acting up again. I’ve been sitting in a chair for 8-14 hours a day for nearly 12 years and I knew I needed to do something different.

Yesterday, I found an article from a Google employee who used and Ikea desk and configured it as a standup desk. (I’ll link to the article later)

So now I start my journey over the next couple weeks of moving from a sit down set up to standing up at my new desk. I’m going to try it out for a week or so in our conference room before start re-arranging my office. Below are some photos of how my initial set up looks. I’ll be modifying an Ikea stool as well which I’ll take a photo of later. I’ll be using that to sit nearly standing for short periods of time until I get my body adjusted to the new configuration. I’ll also post some updates on how my back and feet are adapting.

A great site for other ideas with Ikea furniture is Ikea Hackers

I’m glad I found Ikea Hackers as well as some other articles on doing a stand up desk on the cheap; Most furniture makers that throw the word ergonomic on in the description seem to think it makes the chair or desk worth an extra $1,000 dollars. Comment below and look for updates on my journey to a standup desk work environment.
