Last updated 20th May, 2020

A timeless classic offering endless hours of fun, darts is going from strength to strength, and nowadays no home or man cave should be without a great board up on the wall. But there’s a lot to think about when getting set up, from board to cabinet to darts and flights. So we’ve done the hard work for you in order to bring you the top 7 dartboard with cabinet sets from around the internet so you can buy everything in one go and get started straight away. And once you start, you won’t be able to stop - speaking from experience!

Below the top 7 you’ll find a helpful buying guide covering everything you need to think about when buying a darts set, but before that let’s remind ourselves why this is a great choice of purchase...

Why buy a dartboard with cabinet set?

Convenience

With just one click you can buy everything you need to get started playing darts at home. All of the sets below include at least a board, cabinet, and darts, with some throwing a few extra accessories in there as well.

Aesthetic

A stylish cabinet can become a feature in your home while at the same time covering up your (not-so-aesthetic) dartboard when you aren’t playing. If your other half isn’t so keen about the idea of a dartboard up on the wall, this might be the way to convince them!

Protection

Let’s face it, alongside the many triple twenties and bullseyes, you’re going to throw the odd stray dart. And when you do, the open cabinet will help protect the area around the board, keeping your walls untarnished and covering up all evidence of that wonky throw!

Storage

There are a bunch of small, easy-to-lose accessories in darts, like spare tips, flights, darts, and scoring chalk. The dartboard cabinet is a great place to store them all, while also keeping the sharp darts away from any kids.

Scoring

Most cabinets will come with scoreboards built into the inside of the cabinet doors, making it easy to track the scores as you play.

Buying guide

The dartboard: type and quality

The first and most important thing to consider is what type of dartboard you want. Bristle is the most common and is what the professionals use, so is the best option if you want to get some tournament practice in. But electronic dartboards are rising in popularity thanks to their safety, durability and automatic scoring - this is more of a ‘family fun’ option. Paper coil boards are usually cheaper but of lower quality, and you can even go for magnetic, although we don’t have any of those in this list.

It’s easy to get drawn into buying everything in one go in a set because it’s great value and convenient, but in doing so make sure that you get a dartboard that is high enough quality for your requirements. You don’t want to have to replace it a few months down the line.

The cabinet style

Remember that one of the main reasons to put a dartboard in a cabinet is because of how it looks aesthetically. Before buying, ask yourself two important questions: Does this cabinet suit the decor of the space you’re going to put it in? Is this a cabinet I’d be happy to see up on the wall everyday? One thing’s for sure, a stylish cabinet looks much better than an open dartboard!

Price

As always, price is one of the most important considerations when making a purchase. From our experience, most bristle and electronic sets fall in the £50-100 ($65-125) range. Towards the upper end of this range you can get a great product like the WINMAU Diamond Plus Darts Set. Below this range you’re usually looking at a paper coil board, which can be a great starter set for kids, and above this range you should be getting something of real quality.

What else is included with the set

All of the sets above come with a dartboard, cabinet, and two sets of darts as standard. But look out the little extras that come with each set. These can make all the difference when getting set up, and can save you money down the line!

Installation

Make sure you’re clear on how the cabinet fixes to the wall, and that you’re happy with that option. It’s also worth checking you already have the right tools in the house, to avoid forking out more money on a new screwdriver or hammer.

Conclusion

So there you have it - our top 7 dartboard with cabinet sets and a buying guide to help you decide which one is best for you. To wrap up, if you’re looking for a quality set that’s going to last then look no further than the WINMAU Diamond Plus set, you can’t go wrong with it. But if you want a starter set for kids or beginners that’s priced towards the more affordable end of the scale, then the Target World Champions set is the way to go. And finally if the aesthetic of the cabinet is most important to you then we recommend the mahogany-style Viper Bristle Dartboard & Cabinet Bundle!
