Start your game room setup with dartboards
What do you think of when someone mentions the setup of a game room? Do table games, Vegas-style machines and card tables spring to mind? For many gamers, dartboards are a quintessential game room addition. They fit almost anywhere and appeal to players of all ages. Carefully select the area where you will hang the board. Pick a low-traffic spot where you can attach it to the wall at a height of five feet and eight inches from the floor. Consider mounting a couple of lamps on either side of the board. This ensures proper illumination without the deceptive shadows that make aiming more difficult.
You usually see manual dartboards wherever the game is part of an entertainment venue. It is also a common sight in at-home game rooms. There are magnetic boards, which are kid-friendly and safer when you have small children in the house. Without the sharp tips of the darts, even the youngest players can get in on the action. Electric boards do the scoring for you and let you socialize and pay attention to other things when you finish throwing your darts. If you are an interior decorator at heart, there are also ways to hide the boards behind cleverly designed cabinetry.
Get ready for your game experience by stocking up on dart accessories. Do you already have a couple of sets of darts? Remember to purchase dart holders where you can store the items while waiting for your turn to play. When not in use, keep the darts in a carrying case specifically designed to store them in individual slots. These cases also have enough space for the flights and any replacement parts. Prevent holes in the wall with the purchase of an octagonal backboard to hold any darts that go past the board.
Enhance the visual aesthetics of your game room with dart cabinets. They are as decorative as they are functional. Mimicking gorgeous woodwork, the cabinets open up to reveal the dartboard. Whether you choose a rustic or vintage look for your game room, let the cabinet become a focal point. When you open up the doors, look for scoreboards that the manufacturer has integrated into the door design. Usually there is also some space for dart and accessory storage.
If this is your first time setting up a board and darts, buy a dartboard cabinet combo. The package includes everything you need to get started. It includes a cabinet, the dartboard and a set of darts. Some of the kits come branded with a sports team's name and logo. Choose a football or hockey logo of your choice to match any other decorations that you are using in the game room.
