Using a standing desk can bring a lot of benefits, and you don’t have to spend a fortune on one if you shop smart. We’ve highlighted many IKEA standing desk projects over the years: here’s a useful roundup, complete with current Australian pricing for the IKEA parts.
IKEA’s Jerker desk functioned as a standing desk option pretty much out of the box, but unfortunately the Swedish giant no longer manufactures it. But there are plenty of other ways to tweak IKEA gear and get a standing desk.
