I Tried The Easiest Of The Three Ways To Raise The Desk Height

The height of the desk I was using at home was too low, and I was in a position to curl my head and shoulders and look into the screen when working on a computer.

I Tried The Easiest Of The Three Ways To Raise The Desk Height
Height

If the height of the desk is raised by 7 to 8 cm, it will be quite so.

It takes money and effort to buy a new desk, so I decided to search SNS and the Internet for a way to raise the height of the desk!

This article introduces ” how to raise the height of a desk or table ” and ” I tried an easy and inexpensive method “ .

For reference, I will also post a comparison photo before and after raising the height.

There are three main ways to raise the height of your desk or table

  1. Buy table legs and replace them with the current ones
  2. Raise the height of the desk with additional rubber
  3. [Extra edition] Change the chair to a lower one and raise the height of the desk

1. Purchase table legs and replace them with the current ones

Desks and table legs are sold separately at online stores and home improvement stores, so you can attach these legs to the tabletop of the desk or table you are currently using.

Replacing the legs depends on the product, but the average cost is about 5,000 to 8,000 yen.

The merit is that the legs themselves are replaced, so “stability is good”.

You can use the desk or table as before because you don’t force yourself to add some equipment to raise the height.

The disadvantage is that the top plate of the desk or table you are currently using may be difficult to remove, or it may not be possible to remove it due to its structure

2, Addition Raise the height of the desk using a rubber

The quickest and least expensive way to raise the height of a desk or table is to use additional rubber to raise the height.

Anyway, it’s easy because you can just put the legs of the desk you are currently using on the replenishment rubber.

3, [Extra edition] Change the chair to a lower one and raise the height of the desk

This is a little different from the other methods, but there is also a method of changing the chair itself to a lower one if the height of the desk and the chair do not match.

Since the table is raised by the lower chair, it is much easier to work on a computer.

However, if you sit in a chair that is too low for a long time, your body will become cramped and you will easily get tired.

I use an elevating chair, but when I sit in the lowest position, my body gets tired, so I use it at a certain height.

The most convenient and easy way to raise or adjust the height of your desk/table is “additional rubber”.

Above, we have introduced three methods: “replace the legs of the desk or table,” “use rubber joints,” and “change the chair to a lower one to increase the height of the desk .”

Of course, it depends on the desk you are using and the environment at home, but for the time being, it is recommended to use “rubber joints”, which is easy and inexpensive.

However, the height to be raised depends on the product, but it is about 15 cm at the maximum, so I think it is difficult if you want to raise the height by 30 cm or 40 cm. Anyway, it is easy, so if you want to change the height a little, it is most effective to use additional rubber.

From here, I actually tried to raise the height of the desk with the added rubber, so I would like to introduce the process and the photo comparison before and after raising.

I tried to raise the height using additional rubber on my desk at home

I’m going to increase the height by using additional rubber on the desk at home.

For reference, I will introduce using two types of desks with different leg shapes.

This time I used a rubber replenisher from a manufacturer called Using.

It was 2,300 yen for a set of four.

Although the main body is small, it has a load capacity of 500 kg, so if you have a desk or bed at home, you don’t have to worry about the weight.

The reason why I chose this product among various additional rubbers is that it ” corresponds to various table leg shapes “.

Compatible with legs of various shapes

Due to its complicated shape, it can be used for round legs and casters that extend in a straight line from the legs of an ordinary desk.

There are two ways to use it depending on the shape of the leg, so I will introduce it with a photo later in the article.

The total height is 9.5 cm, but since there is a hole of about 1,5 cm for the legs of the table, the actual height that can be raised is about 8 cm .

Also, it was written on the product introduction page, but it seems that you can stack two rubbers if you want to increase the height.

I added two

One piece is 7.9 cm, but two pieces can raise the height to 15,4 cm.

If you remove the cover on the back of one side, you will be completely hooked on the two.

It seems that even two pieces are stable to some extent, but it still feels a little more unstable than when using one piece.

The backside is non-slip processed.

[First desk] I used it for a desk with round legs and square legs.

As you can see, the height of this desk does not match the height of the computer.

Photo before replenishment and use

I can work on a computer at this height, but my head leans forward, so my shoulders and neck hurt after work.

So I will attach the additional rubber to the legs of the desk at once.

This desk has a slightly special structure with ” round legs in the front” and ” square legs in the back but I could use it without any problems.

With such a light desk, even one person could do the work at all. When I say work, I just put the legs of the desk on it.

This is a comparison photo before and after using the additional rubber ↓

The height is about 8 cm higher than before use. Is it only 8 cm on the numbers? However, when I try to work on a computer, it is quite different from before.

In the past, the desk was low and I had extra strength on my head and shoulders, but that has become much easier.

Also, contrary to its appearance, it is fairly stable and there is no problem when working on a computer.

[Second desk] I used it for a desk with casters

This addition seems to be usable for desks and tables with casters, so I tried it as an experiment.

By the way, this desk weighs 13 kg, so it’s fairly heavy.

The first desk was light so I could do it alone, but this desk was so heavy that it was hard for me to work with two people.

It’s like one person holding a desk and the other putting additional rubber on the legs of the desk.

It is stable and there is no problem in working.

However, with casters, there are concerns that the caster’s legs may rotate and fall over when an earthquake strikes.

I’m worried about a tall desk because it’s structurally easy to fall over when it shakes.

So when using it with casters, it seems better to use it for lower things such as TV racks and low tables.

Summary of advantages and disadvantages of replenishment found by using

I will introduce the advantages and disadvantages that I felt when I actually used the replenishment at home.

  • Benefits
    (no money)
    (can also be used for beds and TV stands)
  • Disadvantages
    (It is difficult to change the position of the desk)
    (It may be dangerous to use it on a higher desk from the beginning)

Merit 1 Anyway, it doesn’t cost money

After all, it is best that it does not cost money.

If you buy a new desk or table, you will have to pay a certain amount of money, so it is great that you can do it for about 2 to 3000 yen.

Also, if you buy a new one, the desk you used before will take up space, and if you try to throw it away, it will cost you more money to put it out in bulky garbage.

Merit 2 Can be used as a substitute for things that you want to raise a little at home

Another advantage is that it can be used for everything at home, such as tables, beds, and TV stands .

I used it for a small table

I use a short and simple table when I eat rice or when I want to work on a computer while sitting down.

Since the height of this table is low, I’ve always wanted to have a little more height. When I tried using the replenishment, the height was just right!

Since the table is light, it is a little unstable, but I am satisfied because it is enough for simple use.

Disadvantage 1 It is difficult to change the position of the desk if there is an additional rubber

This disadvantage doesn’t apply to everyone because it’s a special way to use your desk,

I get tired of working in the same place, so I change the desk layout about once every two to three weeks.

The problem here is that if you have an ordinary desk, you can just shift the position of the desk, but since there is a replenishment, you have to set the desk and replenishment again after moving the desk.

Furthermore, in the case of a heavy desk or table, the setting is difficult unless there are two people.

So, to conclude, if you change the position of the desk or table frequently, I think that replenishment is not very suitable.

On the contrary, if the position of the desk or table is fixed and it does not change much, I think that there is no problem with adding it.

Disadvantage 2 It may be dangerous to use it on a desk or table that is higher than the original

There is no problem when using it for a low desk or table,

It can be dangerous if you use it on a tall desk or table from the beginning.

It is stable when working on a computer, and there is no problem, but if the ground itself shakes due to an earthquake, it is possible that the additional rubber will come off.

If the desk is low, the desk will not fall even if the replenishment rubber comes off, but if the replenishment rubber comes off, the desk itself may fall down.

How to raise the height of the desk and the impression that I actually tried [Summary]

Replenishment rubber summary
  • It doesn’t cost money
  • The height can be raised to about 5 to 15 cm
  • Can be used for various furniture at home
    (desk, table, bed, TV stand, kotatsu, etc.)
  • Setting is difficult if you move frequently
  • If you use it on a tall desk from the beginning, you will be worried in the event of an earthquake.

Depending on the type of desk and how it is used, there are some disadvantages, but

Since about 2000 yen and much cheaper than getting a new one the desk, ” you want a little raise the height of the desk,” ” want to try or the time being available to anyone who wants” the shirttail is I think that it is recommended.

Even if you buy a new desk on the way, you can use the additional rubber in various places at home such as a bed or a TV stand, so it is a nice point that it will not be wasted.

Sometimes I use a desk with height adjustment

If you want to change the height of the desk depending on the place of use and work content, it is very convenient to use a desk with height adjustment.

I bought an E-WIN standing desk in addition to the existing desk so that I could work on my computer even when I was standing.

This desk has a very large height adjustment width of “74 cm to 118 cm”, so you can work while standing or sitting, which is very convenient.

Also, since the height can be adjusted at the desk, it can be adjusted regardless of whether the chair at home is high or low.

And the number one reason I chose this desk is that it’s foldable.

There are various types of foldable desks, but I could hardly find a desk that says ” foldable + height-adjustable ” on the mail order.

It takes about 30 seconds to fold, so it’s easy and helpful to clean up after work.

If you are having trouble with the height of your desk, this is a product that you should definitely try.
