Unless you have a height-adjustable desk, chances are that your computer monitors sit at about neck height.

This convention impacts your posture, energy levels, and overall health by causing you to slouch in your seat while you work or play games.

Thankfully, there is an inexpensive solution to this problem that doesn’t require stacking books under your monitor.

A small wooden monitor riser can bring your screen up anywhere between 4 and 16.5 inches, allowing you to sit up straighter and more comfortably.

Many risers have handy organization compartments, and even the most simple designs will add desk space to your setup. So without further ado, read on below to free up desk space and fix your posture.


1. The House of Trade Standing Desk Riser

The Standing Desk Riser from House of Trade rises above your average monitor stand. Its large wood desktop sits atop an adjustable aluminum frame which can be raised all the way up to the height of a standing desk.

At its lowest setting, this desk is 32.5 x 20.5 x 6.5 inches (LWH), but two high quality hand levers can be used to raise the desktop up to 16.5 inches.

The top surface is spacious enough to fit two 24-inches monitors, and there is a sliding keyboard tray beneath. The keyboard tray helps free up additional space on your desk.

Ultimately, this desk riser will only appeal to those most dedicated to ergonomics because of its hefty price tag. But price aside, this is definitely a top choice.
