Furniture For Patio, Game Room And Crafts

In this final edition of home furniture we're going to review some of the odds and ends type of pieces you might find in or out of someone's home.

Most people's favorite room in the house is the game room. This is where we all go to play, have fun and basically get away from the everyday hassles of life. Game rooms can be very diverse and most of the furniture one would find in a game room would be the games themselves.

The most common piece of furniture one might find in a game room is a pool table. While the shape of a pool table is standard, the sizes are not. There are regulation size pool tables which can be as large as 8 foot long and then you have your smaller than regulation tables which are usually 6 or 7 feet in length. As for the material pool tables are made of, most of them are made of wood but the type of wood can vary greatly and because of this, the price of the tables themselves can vary from hundreds to thousands of dollars.

Another common piece of furniture in a game room is a ping pong table. These too can be regulation at 5 by 9 feet or smaller. Ping pong tables take a lot of abuse so they are made very strong, usually of hard aluminum. There are plenty of styles of these tables to choose from.

Of course no game room would be complete without a bar. Most of these are built into the room and are very stylishly designed. These bars are usually about 6 by 3 feet and are made of many different types of wood with shelves in the back to store your beverage of choice, whatever that may be.

Moving out of the game room we have the ever popular patio. You have, of course heard the joke about the Irish gentleman who lived out doors. His name was patio furniture. Okay, maybe it's not that funny but patio furniture is a big craze with many people. Who can resist sitting out doors in the blazing sun and getting fried to a crisp. Your basic patio furniture consists of tables and chairs, an umbrella, benches, rockers, porch swings, and a ton of garden accessories.

Then of course you have your hobbyist type furniture. For example, for those who like to sew you have your sewing tables. Of course today, in order to be politically correct, they're called work tables, and quite honestly can be adapted to just about any kind of hobby. Of course to keep or store your arts and crafts they have what are called craft armoires. These are really just fancy cabinets but don't tell the craftsmen that. For true artists you have craft tables, art easels, and what they call art taborets. These are just fancy tall dressers but they are very popular.

Needless to say there are more kinds of furniture than we have hours in the day to go over them. We have just scratched the surface in these past three articles which makes you wonder; how come so many furniture stores go out of business?
