Game Room Size, Recommended Room Dimensions
7′ x 3 ½’ – 7-foot pool table needs roughly 17′ x 13½’
8′ x 4′ – 8-foot pool table needs roughly 18′ x 14′
9′ x 4 ½’ – 9-foot pool table needs roughly 19′ X 14½’
Above are the common pool table and room sizes that would best fit the area of play. For best results, you should make sure that the room you are putting the pool table will have enough room for the actual pool table size ad it is recommended that there be more room for a more comfortable, relaxed game.
When measuring your game room dimensions you must account for anything and everything that could obstruct your pool cue when playing. Things like fireplaces mantles, pillars, furniture or shelves. Another factor to consider is to make sure you have enough space for lighting above the table.
When recovering a pool table, the industry norm is supplied, pre-cut billiard felt.
Also if you give us a call to perform prime pool table refelting claiming to be an 8-ft table but when we arrive and find out it’s actually a 9-foot table we may not be able to recover your table on that appointment as we would have only brought enough felt to cover a 9-foot table. This is why it is important to correctly measure your pool table and it’s appropriate game room size.
