  • how high does my ceiling need to be?

    Posted by HunnyHeatha on January 30, 2009 at 4:58 am

    This is probably a silly question, but it’s been the reason that I haven’t bought a pole yet!
    I’m concerned that my ceilings are too short for a pole. I feel like I wouldn’t have enough room to do the "moves". I’ve watched videos on YouTube and everyones ceilings look so much higher than mine.
    So basically, how high should my ceiling be in order to have a pole and to have enough room to use it properly?
    Thanks! https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif

    Hmmm depends….how tall are yo?? If your super tall with short ceilings that could be difficult. https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_eek.gif Most ceilings are usually 7ft and over.

    I’m about 5’7". When I stand on my tippy-toes I can touch the ceiling (it’s in my basement and we have a low-suspended ceiling). But on the main floor of my house there’s about 11 inches inbetween my fingertips and the ceiling. Maybe I should look at putting it upstairs, rather than down.
    Would the pole be bad for the hardwood floors? (I’m looking at a 50mm X-Pole)

    The x pole cannot be used on a suspended ceiling…but its totally fine on hardwood floors https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif It will not damage ceilings either and is easy and fast to put up and take down. No screws either! I’m just over 5′ 7" myself! Sounds like you would have enough room upstairs. X pole is the best I love love love it!

    Any recommendations? I have vaulted ceilings in my home which range from approximately 9 1/2 -12 ft. perhaps higher, I am not sure. Which pole would you recommend and would I need any additional mounts? Such as vaulted ceiling mounts? I have heard of these, but I am not a seasoned dancer. I am just beginning and currently practice at a friends home. However, I am now addicted to this wonderful new sport/world! https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif

    Thank you!!

    I have heard tell that Platinum Stages poles can be used on vaulted ceilings and that’s there’s a special attachment to screw it onto the vaulted ceiling. http://www.platinumstages.com

    I use my X pole on my 12ft vaulted ceiling but the ceiling has a flat spot at the very top. If your ceiling comes to a point then you can’t use the x pole. Platinum stages does in fact sell a special mount for a vaulted ceiling. If you do go with that brand I would suggest buying brass….I had the Platinum stages high polished stainless steel for my first pole and it was always very slippery. https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_cry.gif I have never tried their brass poles but brass does have more grip. You could also check into lil mynx I think they might be able to fit a vaulted ceiling too??? https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_flower.gif https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_flower.gif

    Thank you for the replys, my celing does come to point. No x-pole for me. https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_cry.gif Does anyone have experience with mynx poles? This will be my first pole and I am not sure if I should purchase a static pole or one that converts to a spinning pole? Any recommendations? I am very excited to order my very own pole! https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_flower.gif

    Thank you.

    The X pole can accommodate a ceiling up to 9ft. If your ceiling is taller that 9ft you will need to buy an extension. I have one of my X poles extended to 12ft. https://www.studioveena.com/img/smilies/icon_eek.gif its great!!
