Online casinos have made visiting a land based casino for special occasions and as a treat.
There’s nothing better than being able to have the same poker gaming fun in the comfort of your own home.
But what if you could take it one step further and bring a land based casino vibe into your own home?
With our helpful hints and tips, you could design your own wooden poker table so you can turn your home into a gaming paradise and add it to your other unique sets.
Let’s take a look through some of the best wooden poker table designs idea and make your dream a reality.
Round is Always Best
When it comes to playing poker, a round table is always a must. You could get away with having a square table if you’re not going to have any more than four players sat round it at one time. However, a round poker table is usually best for seating more people and just from a comfort point of view.
Having a round wooden poker table makes it easier to see all of your opponents as well as being seated in comfort.
Make it a Multi-Use Table
Space is often something that we run out of around the home. There’s never enough closet space or storage space which can make adding a new piece of furniture difficult to implement. However, if a poker table is your dream, there’s no reason you should sacrifice it.
The best way to implement a poker table into the home is to have it function as something other than a poker table when you’re not playing a game. Why not double up your poker table as a new dining table? Or maybe you’ve got a desk that could be doubled up as a poker table?
As a poker table traditionally has a dip down into the actual poker table, it’s easy to get a lid that you can put over it when you’re not using it. If you’re into a bit of DIY, you can always make this one yourself. Or if you don’t trust your woodworking skills, why not have one made especially for this purpose?
This would make a great gift that is functional as well as being able to use it to wow your guests on poker night.
Collapsible Wooden Poker Table
If a dual purpose poker table doesn’t feel like your kind of thing, why not think about creating a collapsible wooden poker table? This way, you can use any other tables you have in the home for their current purposes and bring out the poker table when the situation calls for it.
This might be a bit more of a challenge to create yourself as there would have to be hinges in the middle to make it fold away. You’d also have to make the legs either collapsible or easy to remove. Therefore, this idea is probably best left to the professionals if you don’t have the DIY skills to make it happen.
However, it’s a great way to have the poker table of your dreams without having to compromise on finding a space for it in your home. This way, it can be brought out specifically for your poker nights – and it’s a great surprise for your guests.
Portable Wooden Poker Table
Card games are always a favourite pastime if you’re camping, especially if you’re somewhere remote without any phone signal. So why not create or invest in a portable poker table? This would have to be small enough to be able to fit in a car or small van, but the challenge is definitely worth it for the wow factor! Nothing makes a camping trip more glamorous than your very own portable casino.
Try Out a Different Kind of Wood or Stain
Poker tables are traditionally a darker wood, but this doesn’t work in every household. If your home is light and airy, you might want to incorporate this into the design. There are no rules that say a poker table has to be a dark wood or have a darker stain to it – you can make it your own.
Thankfully, wood staining is a pretty easy bit of DIY that you can do. You could even try out a wacky colour to really make your poker table pop! There are no rules when it comes to building the poker table of your dreams so let your creativity shine through.
Creating your own wooden poker table is a great way to add a bit of spice to your home. You can entertain your guests with something totally unique – or simply find a brand new way of passing the time in the evenings.
There are no rules when it comes to creating your own wooden poker table so why not make it as unique as possible?
