Poker Tables

Choosing the best game table

Serious card players know there's nothing more invigorating than playing a challenging game of poker in a casino. However, rounding up the posse and heading to the casino every time you're in the mood to play poker isn't exactly realistic. The next best thing is to add a stylish poker table to your home's games room.

Poker Table Budget

Your budget will determine the size and the quality of your new poker table. A top-of-the-line poker table can cost several thousand dollars, but simpler poker tables can be purchased for only a few hundred. It all depends on where you shop. When determining the budget for your poker table, don't forget to add in the cost of chairs and poker table accessories like poker chips and replacement poker table felt.

Type and Size of Poker Tables

Poker tables come in a variety of sizes and styles to accommodate differing tastes and needs. Space constraints can limit the type of poker table you're able to buy. Octagon-shaped poker tables or expandable tables, as opposed to full-sized casino tables, are solid options for games rooms with limited space.

A folding poker table is perfect for a person who does not have the luxury of a separate games room. Once folding game tables are collapsed, they can be stored anywhere. However, folding game tables are not as durable or attractive as the pricier wooden poker tables. That said, a wood card table makes an attractive addition to any home. Like other wood furniture, wooden poker tables are available in a range of finishes, including cherry, mahogany and walnut.

Poker tables can serve multiple purposes. Some tables have removable poker table tops and can double as dining tables so friends and family can enjoy a nice meal before a friendly game of cards. Multipurpose poker tables help you make the most of limited space.

Having a specially designed poker table makes card night a lot more fun. They're well worth the investment if you're a serious card player or host a regular poker game at your house.
