Things To Consider When Buying A Gaming Table
Game tables like poker tables are no small investment. Choosing the right one can have a big impact on your wallet and your entertainment room, so make sure you’re getting the best quality so it will last for years to come. The table’s design should also fit in with the rest of your game room. Here are some factors to consider before choosing the right one for you.
Determine the right size for your space.
It may come as a surprise, but game tables — especially if they’re multi-functional — can come in a variety of sizes. You want to make sure there’s enough space to comfortably seat everyone as you play the card or board game of your choice. The table should also be measured so the room you put it in doesn’t feel cramped when your new, beautiful game table gets installed. No one around the table should feel like they’re being uncomfortably crowded or cramped.
Consider the height.
The size of a game table usually refers to the diameter, but it can also refer to the height. For those who may need a little more leg room, this can be just as important as the diameter of the playing surface. There is a range of heights, which often depends on the brand, the make, and the model of that particular piece. Average game tables can range anywhere from 28 to 50 inches tall.
Decide on the style.
Don’t overlook the style of the table. You want something that looks right at home in your entertainment space, not something that clashes with the design and decor of the room. Companies offer a variety of styles and finishes where applicable to ensure the customer gets something that matches their vision. Many companies also offer a variety of cloth options and colors so your table matches the decor of the rest of the game room. In the case of game tables, this might also include the shape, such as round or octagonal, and segment style. You decide whether you want your gaming table to have chip slots, cash trays, or even a mix of both and we’ll find the perfect table for you!
Determine its utility.
The wonderful thing about many game and poker tables manufactured today is that they can be made to serve dual functions. Many of the brands offered at West State feature the ability to easily flip the tabletop over to transform the furniture from dining or end table to a poker table and back again! Non-slip protectors in many of these models help keep the top secure no matter what it’s being used for.
This feature also makes these products a wonderful space saver for anyone who is conscious about how much space they have available. Plus, these products are designed with ease in mind, so no need to worry about cumbersome furniture pieces.
Keep in mind the quality.
It goes without saying that if you’re going to invest a lot of money into this new piece of furniture, it should be made to the highest quality standards the industry has to offer. You want a product that will stand the test of time and anything else that happens to it. Accidents happen, so you don’t want a table that will stain or break after one mistake. Brands such as California House and Presidential offer some of the highest quality game tables around, so you can rest assured your new piece of game room furniture is worth the investment.
Look into whether you will need accessories.
Some of the brands we offer come with the option for you to buy matching seating for your new piece. Consider whether or not you’ll need extra seating while you’re looking through game tables. Buying a game table and chairs or stools that match will help with the feel of the room. Not only will it match your new table, but it will help keep your room’s style cohesive. You will have to do the extra research to learn which chairs and stools are most comfortable if you decide you need seating. especially for extended play times, like a long game of poker or blackjack. Also consider a bar area with counter and bar stools– details like this are often what sets apart a nice gameroom from a great one.
Review your budget.
Your budget will be what defines the type of furniture you can afford in the end. Whether you get a discounted piece for your living room or something larger and more customized, you’ll need to know how much you are willing to spend. Include the cost of accessories and having the table professionally installed in this budget.
