Best Dart Cabinets Review

Best Dartboard Cabinet

We love to play darts. The thing about darts is that it is an easy game for anyone to start playing. Even those who have never played before can pick up some darts and hit the board with them.

They may not hit that treble twenty (intentionally) for a long time, but they will hit the board. Once you master the game, there is nothing better than that first treble twenty or high checkout.

It does not matter if you are a darts amateur or a professional, a cabinet for your dartboard makes sense. The main reasons are:

  • A dart cabinet will offer you some protection to the surrounding area of your dartboard
  • It will cover your dartboard when not in use
  • Will give you a way to track scores without a separate chalkboard or piece of paper

We have done the research and found the best dartboard cabinets out there.

These boards not only limit the need for a dart backboard, but they look good too. Let’s start with our number one choice, which you'll find just below our top three picks.

Dart World 49126 Early American Dart Cabinet Kit

Why we like it:

We like this tournament-quality cabinet and board. The darts could use an upgrade, but you are going to get everything which you want from a cabinet kit with this one. Setup is easy, and you are ready to play instantly.


Summary:

The best thing about this cabinet is that it comes with everything you need to get a game of darts started. While most cabinets will only include the cabinet, this cabinet kit comes with a dartboard, two sets of darts, the cabinet itself, and a throw line. Once you have the cabinet hung at the correct height, you can place the throw line the right distance from the board, and you are ready to play.

This dart cabinet looks great. The solid pine gives an amazing aesthetic which will fit with any room. The grain of the wood gives you a professional look which other dartboard cabinets do not.


When you open it, not only do you get a professional dartboard with two sets of darts includ-ed but you also get a scoring area which is high-quality. There is also an out chart which will tell you which individual dart scores you need to make the most common outs. This is handy for beginners until they learn the common combinations.
