Adjustable furniture typically comes at a higher initial cost compared to standard non-adjustable options. This can be a significant factor for schools with tight budgets.


The mechanisms that allow for adjustment can be complex. This complexity can lead to increased maintenance issues over time, particularly if the furniture is heavily used by students who may not always handle it gently.

Training and Management

Teachers and staff may need training on how to adjust the furniture safely and correctly. Additionally, it requires management to ensure that the furniture is appropriately adjusted for each student, which can be time-consuming.

Durability Concerns

The moving parts in adjustable furniture can be susceptible to wear and tear, potentially reducing the lifespan of the products compared to their fixed counterparts.


Poorly designed adjustable furniture can pose safety risks, such as pinching fingers in the adjustment mechanisms or collapsing if not properly secured.
