Dartboard cabinets are a versatile and great way to house your dart boards. They can range from a simple wall mounted stand up through an expensive cabinet with a ton of bells and whistles.
Since cabinets can range from <$50 to hundreds of dollars, we will review the cabinets in different price brackets.
First, we'll start out with dartboard cabinets that range from about $150-$250
In this price range you can expect to get solid wood, a scoreboard, and exceptional quality. If you want something very high quality to fit in your game or entertainment room, you want to go with this price range.
Quality Dart Board Cabinets
American Heritage Dartboard
First up, we have the American Heritage Billiards Cavalier Dartboard Cabinet. This is the most expensive option, probably because it is handcrafted.
This is a classy looking handcrafted cabinet and has a beautiful traditional design. It's finished Mocha color should match most game/entertainment rooms as well.
It comes with a tournament-quality bristle board along with 2 scoring chalkboards and 2 sets of of steel-tipped darts.
Its biggest drawback is that it doesn't come with a lot of features that other premium dartboards come with.
Viper Cambridge Sisal Bristle Dartboard & Cabinet Bundle
Overall, this is probably the best bang for the buck. You'll be getting a lot of amazing features for a reasonable price with this one.
It comes in 4 customization levels, Deluxe, Elite, Premium, and Standard. We're reviewing the Deluxe option but you can get it with some reduced features along with a reduced price.
This bundled set includes the cabinet along with a sisal/bristle staple-free bullseye dartboard which reduces bounce outs. Also, you'll get a dry erase scoreboard, out-chart board, dry erase marker and mounting hardware.
The Viper Cambridge arched dartboard cabinet has an amazing black felt lining and it's solid pine wood is available in two complementary finishes - Cinnamon and Mahogany along with bronze hinges.
This cabinet's quality construction provides lasting durability and complements the look of any room.
The attention to detail is what sets this cabinet apart as it has 2 compact door stoppers which help protect the dartboard and cabinet from a door slamming shut.
It's constructed from self-healing sisal/bristle fibers compressed together, providing unsurpassed durability.
A movable number ring further extends the dartboard's life.
It also has 1 set of Viper Black Mariah 22 gram steel tip darts. They are designed with black coated brass barrels that deliver exceptional balance and styling.
These darts have strategically placed knurling and grooves which provides excellent gripping points. Each dart features an aluminum shaft featuring locking holes which deliver a tight connection that improves stability.
This next feature seals the deal for me:
The Elite bundle includes a Viper laser throw/toe line marker. The bright and energy efficient lighting of the laser allows it to be seen even in intense daylight. The adjustable laser throw/toe line provides a modern alternative to traditional adhesive floor markers. Once the laser is mounted, simply tighten the 2 screws on either side to ensure it stays in place, even if it is bumped.
Officially Licensed NFL Dart Cabinet Set
No entertainment room or man cave is complete until it has enough sports memorabilia on the walls.
That's why we've included the officially licensed NFL dartboard cabinet set. You can choose from any NFL team and it will be customized for that specific team.
The dartboard cabinet is highlighted by team logo on dartboard doors, centered to proudly show your team spirit; Dartboard and interior of cabinet also feature team name and logos

Closed Dimensions: 23-1/4" L x 22" W x 4" D
Mid-Price Dartboard Cabinets
These are all solid mid-range choices for your dartboard cabinet.
You'll notice that Viper has both high-end and mid-range dartboard cabinets. These are similar to the option above, except a touch lower quality and with fewer features.
In this category though I believe the DMI Sports cabinet is the best price for the best quality. Primarily, the finger jointed wood is what's going to set it apart and make it feel like a quality piece of furniture.
Best Cheap Dartboard Cabinets Under $50
These are low priced options for those on a budget. You're going to be sacrificing quality and appearance, but at least you'll have something that is a step above a basic wall covering and it can also hide your dartboard and darts.
These are awesome entry level products because they include a dart board and darts along with the cabinet. So, for under $50 you can be playing darts with your friends on Friday nights or during football games.
Really can't beat that!
The key to shopping for lower priced dartboard cabinets is finding the best quality for the price.
In the high and mid range, you can expect a level of quality regardless of what you buy, but here it's really important to compare.
None of the lower priced option come in real wood. They have lower quality hinges and doors as well.
It's probably not generally recommended to get the Trademark Gameroom Dartboard because at $27, it's the same price as an average dart board. No way you are going to get a decent board and cabinet for the same price as an average dartboard.
So, aim for the slightly higher priced Kings Head dartboard. it's the same price as the DMI Sports gameboard but has generally better quality and reviews.
