If you’re thinking about adding a stripper pole to your home dance studio, you might wonder where the best place to put it is.
Here are a few things to consider to help you make the best decision for your space.
Before choosing a place, check your ceiling!
Before installing your dance pole, it’s essential to ensure the ceiling is suitable for the type of installation you plan to do.
If you have a freestanding pole, you don’t need to worry about this step – but if you’re using a tension and pressure pole or a fixed ceiling-mounted one, it’s essential to ensure the ceiling can hold the weight of your pole safely.
Concrete ceilings are preferable as they are incredibly sturdy and consistent. At the same time, metal girders or joists with boards should be tested by tapping on them – a deeper, more solid sound will indicate that they can hold the pole securely.
You can also use a stud finder to locate these support beams accurately.
Can you install a pole in an apartment?
Yes, it is possible to install a stripper pole in an apartment.
However, It’s always good to ask permission from your landlord before attempting any installation – and remember to take extra care when drilling into the walls.
Also, ensure your pole is securely fastened so it does not pose a danger to anyone.
Finally, consider the noise and disruption it may cause – you don’t want to disturb your neighbors or cause too much vibration in your apartment block.
So, where should I put my stripper pole?
Once you’re sure that your ceiling can hold the weight of your pole, you should consider other factors such as lighting, space, and accessibility.
An excellent place to start is with a large open space – this will give you plenty of room to move around and perform those gravity-defying tricks.
It’s also essential that your stripper pole is within easy reach of power outlets so that you can connect your music while you are dancing.
If you have a large window, you could consider positioning the pole near it to take advantage of natural light during the day – or use spotlights for nighttime performances.
Ultimately, the best place for your stripper pole is wherever you feel most comfortable.
With these things in mind, you should now have the perfect place for your stripper pole!
So go ahead, let your hair down, and get ready to show off your sexy moves.
Here are some suggestions for where to put your stripper pole:
In a large open space
Take a tour of your home and find the largest, most spacious room – this could be in the living room, den, or even outdoors.
In front of a window
Find a large window that gets plenty of natural light during the day and use it to your advantage – you can use spotlights for nighttime performances.
In the most comfortable room
You want to perform confidently and comfortably, so pick a room you feel most relaxed in – your bedroom or bathroom.
Well… if your bathroom has a big open space, of course.
In the living room
Your living room is usually the most convenient place to install your pole as it’s often the center of activity in a house. However, if you have one, it could be near the TV or in front of a window.
But sometimes the living room is full of furniture and other obstacles, making it difficult to find a suitable spot.
Consider rearranging some furniture or moving the pole to another room instead.
Turn a room into a dance room
If you have a spare room or an unused corner, why not turn it into your dance studio?
This will give you the space and privacy to practice and perfect your moves without distractions.
It can also be a room intended for another purpose but not in use – like a storage room or guest bedroom.
Make sure it has plenty of space and adjustable lighting for optimal performance – and of course, check the ceiling for support beams.
How much room do I need for a pole at home?
When installing a dance pole, you’ll want to ensure you have enough space – at least 5.5′ of clearance away from any walls or solid objects and 7.5′ between two poles if you’re planning on having more than one.
If you have particularly long arms or legs, giving yourself extra space for safety is also a good idea.
You can swing your body away from the pole without worrying about bumping into anything!
Remember the guide I wrote about how much space you need for a stripper pole?
The perfect place for your stripper pole is wherever you feel most comfortable and relaxed.
But first of all, check the ceiling for support beams and give yourself plenty of space – at least 5.5 feet away from walls or solid objects and 7.5 feet between two poles if you have more than one.
With all these things in mind, you should now have the perfect place for your stripper pole.
So go ahead and get ready to show off those sexy moves!
