Benefits Making Your Pool Table Multi Purpose
Having a pool table in your home is a great luxury and a wonderful source of entertainment. However, at times it can be nice to have extra table space when entertaining. Your pool table provides a nice extra surface, but you would never dream of using it unprotected. A hardtop pool table cover could be the answer you are looking for.
Pool tables provide their owners with hours of enjoyment. However, they do take up a rather large amount of space. It can be a great use of extra space to display food, drinks, and other items. A tablecloth alone cannot do the job of protecting your precious pool table from spills, scratches, and tears. In addition, unavoidable elements such as dust and sunlight can damage your table over time. These types of disasters can permanently ruin the felt on your table. The costs of replacing the entire felt surface can add up quickly.
It is a wise decision to make the investment in a cover for your pool table. Both soft covers and hardcovers are available. Soft covers can be draped over the table or fitted snugly. They are commonly made of leather material and come in a variety of colors. Soft covers do fend off most spills, dust, and sunlight.
A hardtop table cover has an extra component that can provide added protection against scratches or tears from sharp objects. First, a vinyl-covered foam insert must be fitted directly on the surface of the billiards table. Then a cover made of a resistant material, such as leather or vinyl, is placed over the top of the table and its edges.
Hardtop pool table covers can be sold with both pieces together in a convenient kit. The cover and foam surface are both fitted to the specific size of your table for complete coverage. They come in a variety of colors to match any room, as well. When not in use, these covers can be neatly folded and tucked away in a closet or under a bed.
It is a great idea to maximize space and usage of your pool table. With a hard top cover, your investment will have the best protection possible.
