4 Upgrades Ideal for a Modern Poker Room

Poker — Des Moines, IA — A TechIf you host a poker game at your house, then you can make the experience enjoyable for everyone who comes over. Home upgrades can increase the comfort level and add a lot to the poker-playing experience. Make poker night go smoothly from the setup process to the cleanup process when the night ends. Turn a poker spot into a location you use and enjoy for years to come.

1. Lighting Upgrades

Visuals are important in a game of poker. You want to read other players’ faces, read your cards, and have a clear view of the bets on the table. Proper lighting in a poker room will make the game go smoothly and help prevent any mistakes. With your poker room design, consider various lighting options.

Smart lighting allows you to adjust the brightness of lights all around the room. Adjust the brightness as a whole or individually. For example, you could dim all of the extra lights in the room and keep just the lights over the poker table on and shining bright.

Also, consider LED strip lights on the inner edge of a poker table. The LED lights allow people to easily see what symbols and suits they have thanks to the extra brightness.

2. Audio Upgrades

Besides the sound of poker chips, add some extra sound with audio upgrades in the room. Built-in wall speakers can connect to streaming devices, phones, or electronics like a CD player. The spread-out speakers will provide you with music and audio options during a poker game.

A tech company can help connect the smart speaker system and allow you to change audio content without getting up from your poker seat. You could also mount a television and connect it to the same speaker system. Use the television to showcase live sports games or other content to enjoy while you play.

If a person goes out of a poker game, then they may want to relax and watch some TV while they wait for the round to finish.

3. Central Vacuum Systems

Snacks, food, and treats are often commonplace at a poker game. The snack eating and playing can often result in a mess, especially at a crowded table. No matter what type of flooring you have, easily clean up crumbs and debris with a central vacuum system.

A central vacuum system runs through vents built into the walls of your home. When you need to vacuum the poker room, you will simply plug a hose into the wall, turn on the vacuum, and suck everything up. Keeping a hose connection right in the poker room is an easier process than lugging a vacuum back and forth after each poker game.

4. Built-In Wall Safes

If you play poker for real money, then a built-in wall safe can add extra security to your poker games. A wall safe can hold and protect poker chips when they are not in use. You can keep money to use for change in the safe. If you play a tournament game, then place all the buy-in amounts right in the safe until the tournament ends.

A wall safe is an extra step in security, especially when the poker room is not in use. Prevent tampering of items inside the safe. A wall safe installation also stops someone from just lifting the safe and removing it from the premises.

For one or more of the poker room upgrades, contact us at A Tech. We will help you make the changes to your room and completely transform the poker experience for the better. We look forward to meeting your poker room needs.

    Todd at A Tech did an awesome job setting up all the electronics in our basement. We have surround sound and all of the electronics are hidden in a closet with only 1 remote. My husband is techy so he worked with A Tech more than I did but my only request to Todd was that I needed to be able to watch tv and play a dvd without asking for help (I am not techy!) One fabulous remote runs everything and has pictures and an easy menu! They also fixed the internet issue in our house! Very Happy Customers!

    Todd designed a whole house audio system with separate controls for every room with one receiver. He was extremely knowledgeable about speaker placement, size and quality. The end product is amazing. He also recommended a remote that controls everything. This is one of my favorite features. I have also purchased several items for my garage organization that I love. They have everything from home audio, garage organization to kitchen items in the store. Will continue to do business with them as I still need closet organization.

    This is the perfect place to go when you have no idea what to get your relatives for Christmas/birthdays. They have fun gadgets all the way up to amazing electronics. Their customized closets are also something just about anyone can use. Who doesn't want to save some space in their home? Stop by and check it out sometime.

    We have had our Beam Central Vac for over 15 years and absolutely love it! It is convenient, easy to use and best of all - keeps the 'dust' out of the home!. We have had very good service when we needed it, we replaced the motor in the unit once (very reasonable) and had replaced the power brush handle once. Pretty good for a unit that is over 15 years old! The folks at A Tech Easy Living Store are knowledgeable and very willing to assist in any way they can. Highly recommend visiting the store! They have LOTS of items that can make your life easier in your home!

    Great products! Exceptional Service! I was out of idea for what to buy my wife. I stopped at The Easy Living Store and they had all I needed to make her happy. I would have never thought of a self opening garbage can as a great gift idea, but they said she would love it and she did! I was amazed at everything the store had to offer and how helpful the staff was there. I will go back.

    Todd did an awesome job getting all the components into our basement home theater system that my techy husband wanted plus making it easy for me to run with only one remote. We are very happy! The guys that came to install the systems were polite and patient with me and took time to explain how to work it all!

    I have hard wood floors and Beam has a attachment I bought it at the store and it is a God send I simply love it, it is a dry mop on the vac! Amazing! I'm buying a spare mop when I go back! I bought my vac at Van Berkum's in Pella (Where I live) never will I go back there, they sent my head out for as a loaner and gave me some one elses. How is that for doing business! We argued for a long time about this and was getting no where she kept saying that it was my head, I will never go back there to buy anything! I'm 60 minutes from Des Moines and I will take my vac to be serviced at the Easy Living Store anytime!

    wish every home repair could be this easy!!! My central vacuum was having issues, burned out motor, poor connection and an outlet issue. The technician called me a bit early and said he was ahead of schedule, perfect! He was waiting when i got there, diagnosed it in about 10 minutes, I asked how long it would take to get the parts, he said he had them on the truck! I thought maybe they were generic, but when they made the appt they asked what model. He made the right diagnosis and fixed in about 20 minutes! Couldn't really ask for much more!!! The only remote downside was when I called on saturday the lady asked me to call back on monday. Great service and a great experience!

    I live in a 50's home. I had A Tech come and redo my closets for me. They had great ideas, listened to my input and now I have great closets, even though I live in an older home!
