Recommended pool table room sizes based on pool table dimensions
If you’re thinking about buying a pool table or if you already have one in pieces and are looking for a professional pool table setup service. Please consider the dimensions of the room where you want it installed.
We have listed the approximate pool table room sizes to help you out when buying a table or deciding which room to have it installed considering you use a standard 58” cue stick.
Another thing you have to consider is the furniture you already have in the room or furniture you plan to put in the game room in the near future. This is very important because you need to have enough room to actually play the game. Also when the pool table setup is already complete and you happen to need the table moved even for just a few inches, the table will have to be taken apart to properly relocate it.
Many people don’t consider this very important question when purchasing a pool table for their home, will it fit in the room? This plus the furniture that you already have in the room or that you plan on adding to the room is of extreme importance since it affects the size of the pool table you can get so that you enjoy a good playing experience.
We have a team of skilled pool table installers, we have been taking care of pool table moves, installations and repairs for quite a few years, so we can definitely help you verify if the pool table you’re interested in will fit in the room, please measure the room dimensions, you may also use the chart we have put together for your convenience. Give us a call if you have any questions.
The dimensions of your game room will determine the size of the pool table you can purchase so that you can enjoy a comfortable playing experience. If you’re interested in a used pool table be sure to ask the seller for the pool table dimensions, specifically the playing surface area, this is the true size of the pool table and it helps to figure out the appropriate pool table room size and also the right cut of pool table cloth to properly take care of the pool table refelting during assembly.
Why it’s important to know the pool table sizes and game room dimensions?
If the pool table turns out to be a different size this could really complicate the job for the pool table installers because the table may not fit in the room and also the cut of felt may not cover the entire table. In most cases, this will change the price of the service, whether it is a pool table setup, installation or a complete move.
The industry norm is supplied, pre-cut pool table felt for the refelting service. If an 8-foot table is expected to be serviced and we encounter a 9-foot table then we may not even have the correct cloth size to finish your job which could also incur additional trip charges.
Please consider that sometimes we encounter a pool table repair which was not specified, meaning that we may not have the materials needed to perform the said repair. These types of pool table repairs sometimes go unnoticed to the untrained eye or they come up once the pool table is in pieces. We can certainly take care of a pool table repair if it is minor, however, we may have to reschedule for a second appointment if the repair calls for additional materials, this may also incur additional fees. Pool table room sizes are important for a successful job and it’s super handy to know when checking the pool table size you can get.
