Pool Table Installation & Assembly

If you have decided to add a pool table to your home, you’ll want to put some thought into the types of tables that will suit your family and will fit within the space you have for it. The right pool table will be an asset to your home and a perfect way to bring your family and friends together, but it takes a little planning to ensure the right fit.

Pool tables come in several sizes, but you’ll likely want to consider an 8 foot table. This table is four feet across and eight feet in length. Smaller tables will require skilled shooting to get to balls that are grouped tightly together, and larger ones will make long-shots extremely difficult. You’ll need room enough for the table itself, but also for players to use cuesticks, too. Players should be able to stand at any place beside the table and have enough room for their stroke. It’s common to allow for about six feet of room, minimum. For those of you worried about regulation sizes, pool tables are regulation as long as their length is twice the width.

Consider which room in your house will best accommodate a pool table. If it is going in a basement or downstairs, you will want to make sure the table you purchase comes apart, otherwise you will not be able to get it into the room you want it in. Pool tables on average weigh half a ton – 1,000 pounds. You’ll want to make sure that it is placed in a location where it can stay for a long time, because you won’t want to move it around.
