Figure out where you want to put your chess set. They fit well in a parlor or a living room. That is a traditional setting in a very relaxed atmosphere. A game room or game area will be a focused social atmosphere which can motivate your best games, a perfect setting. The kitchen table or eating counter where it is readily accessed is a great way to combine daily tasks with your love for games. You do not need a place totally dedicated to chess, but it makes it easier to get back to your game and to keep playing a game if you do. For quiet for concentration put your chess set in a study type atmosphere where it can be displayed nicely and effectively and not disturbed. The most important part of this decision is whether it fits your style and that it suits you. Remember you cannot make a mistake in choosing the right chess table or board, because you can make it fit your style with just a little planning.
Analyze your furniture. You can arrange your favorite furniture so that you like the look of the room and it is functional for you and your needs. Tailor your furniture to your house and let your chess set fit in naturally. Make sure the furniture fits the use you have for it. Game tables and boards can be made to match your furniture in use and in style. Chess themes need only simple planning to make them fit where you need them to.
Figure out whether you want a game table or a chess board for displaying your game, or a cabinet board for putting it away. Use a decorative cabinet for putting your game away after winning. For instance, if you live in a small area, you may need a chess storage board to put your game away safely. If you play it every day, it may irritate you to have to put the game away. A chess table will provide a designated spot for displaying your chess game and allowing you to play a game for months. Many people do play their games for months, some play for hours. It boils down to whether you want a table for displaying your game or whether you want chess pieces displayed on the mantle.
Figure out the style of game table or chess board. A stone chess table gives an air of sophistication and strength with the goal of displaying decoratively. Wood chess tables give a solid but softer, warmer glow in their display and are more versatile in function. Stone game tables have wood parts also combining the best of both styles. Some game tables have storage drawers for chess pieces. The game tables come with the board embedded. Cabinet boards have hidden chess piece storage. The chess board is on the box and a lid opens to store the chess pieces. Decorative storage boxes are simply elegant for storing chess pieces only, stacking separately with the chess board. Game tables and cabinet boards easily fit your decor and will suite your style with simple planning.
In Conclusion, simply match the chess set with the place you want to play your game at and with the style of table or chess board. No one will be able to know your style better than you will, and the beauty is that you can fit any chess theme in with your decor if you plan for it. So plan away – and have fun!
