The pros and cons as they apply to you need to be weighed up to arrive at what is best.

I have gone for 1.3m as the layout necessarily has 'duck under' access, and while I can get under easily now, should the family bane of arthritis have a go at me in later life, I will be able to 'scoot under' using the wheelchair that successively served my late mother and late mother in law. I have a neat 'rolling step' unit got decades ago, that enables me to work with the track at waist level when that's required, and operate sitting on bar stools for eye level viewing.

There's a heap of product that goes by that 'rolling step' description. Mine is a ply box with a sprung castor wheel in each corner that allows the step to sink onto bump stops when I step on, so no rolling about and stable when in use. (Not a commercial product, made in house for a manufacturing operation on a site where my late FiL was facilities and plant manager: got for free in a clearout ahead of re-equipment.)
