5 Reasons Every Home Should Have a Chess Table

Chess in an ancient game dating all the way back to <a title="US Chess" href="http://www.uschess.org/content/view/7326/28/" target="_blank">at least 600 AD</a>. It’s a strategic masterpiece that has only grown in popularity over time, and is still played in <a title="World Chess Federation" href="https://ratings.fide.com/topfed.phtml" target="_blank">nearly every country</a> in the world.</br></br>Many chess fans today choose to include a chessboard as part of their home décor - and a chessboard is great, but a chess table is even better. A chess table brings this illustrious game to new heights by making the board part of the furniture itself; instead taking up table space, it creates it!</br></br>Because we love these game tables so much, here are five of the best reasons to add one to your space:</br></br><strong>1. They Look Classy</strong></br></br>This is an undeniable fact. Whether you opt for a basic wood design or a high-end marble chess table, the classic checker-patterned board and elegant pieces bring an air of sophistication to any space.</br></br><strong>2. They Are Versatile Furniture Pieces </strong></br></br><a title="Chess Tables" href="https://www.atgstores.com/furniture/home-bar-furniture/game-tables/type/chess/" target="_blank">Chess tables</a> come in a range of sizes and shapes; round, square and even hexagonal designs that can work in any room. This variety makes them great as side or end tables, a perfect substitute for a bistro table, or even as an entryway table.</br></br><strong>3. They Usually Feature Storage </strong></br></br>Most chess tables include a built-in drawer where you can store game pieces. While this is a great use for the drawer, it could also be used to hold a range of other items, from car keys and coasters to TV clickers and can openers.</br></br>So, even if you don’t really care for the game itself, a chess table can still add a bit of functionality to your space.</br></br><strong>4. They Can Help Make You Smarter </strong></br></br><a title="Chess Makes You Smarter" href="https://www.atgstores.com/ourblog/Chess-Makes-You-Smarter" target="_blank">Studies show</a> that playing chess is like exercise for your brain. When played regularly, it can improve general problem-solving skills, help you think more clearly and promote multitasking abilities.</br></br><strong>5. They Add Fun to Your Space</strong></br></br>Even with its fancy appearance and intelligent air, in the end chess is still just a game: a brilliant and complex game of planning, strategy and wit! And, who of us wouldn’t love a little more of that in our lives and living rooms?
