How a luxury pool table can be the statement piece of furniture in your home
When two people buy a home and furnish it there can often be disagreements around how your beautiful place of shelter and sanctuary is not only decorated but what goes in there too. One half of the at-home partnership may want to go large on a ‘man cave and games room’ and the other may want the furniture to be all about making the place look like a show home. But, here’s the thing, there may a solution for a pool mad partner and the other half who wants a designer dining table.
If one or both of you are looking for a table that can be used as a centrepiece of a beautifully furnished dining room but you also want to be able to use it to play pool on a full-size table, this luxury pool table can offer you the best of both worlds. A removable dining top can convert a beautifully crafted pool table into a statement piece dining table and vice versa. It is possible to achieve a man cave in your dining room without having to compromise on style.
Tabletops come in a range of contemporary styles including clear glass, frosted glass and lacquered patterns, to name a few. But what about the table itself? Luxury pool tables can be purchased in a variety of different colours to suit any taste. Beech or oak is the wood generally used for the manufacture of a high-quality pool table and oak tables that stretch up to 8ft long can be ordered. Perfect for big family gatherings or mammoth pool marathons.
Investing in a pool table should be just that, an investment. A luxury pool table will be built using only high-quality materials, like solid oak and walnut, that are built to last. Many luxury pool tables can be carved from individual pieces of wood and not glued together like mass-produced tables are. If you are looking for a higher-end pool table you may also be able to buy from a manufacturer who uses only ethically sourced wood, meaning that trees are re-planted after logging to ensure healthy, sustainable forests. As for the playability, a high end, luxury table should be made with the game in mind. Let’s face it, one of these tables will involve a significant investment so expect professional-level cushions and slate levelling to give you a tournament-grade level of precision.
A luxury pool table is not a here today and in land-fill tomorrow purchase. By buying a table which is made from solid, sustainable wood you are making a statement not only about your style (and passion for pool!) but also that your purchase decisions are good for the planet.
