Pool table room sizes guide for your convenience
Please consider the dimensions of the room where you want it installed. On this page, 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 to consider is the furniture you already have in the room or furniture you plan to purchase in the near future since this will definitely affect the positioning of your pool table.
This is of extreme importance given that if the pool table assembly has already been taking care of, in other words, if the pool table is already installed and you want to move it even if it is just a few inches, then it will be necessary to completely disassemble it in order to move it.

Experienced installers strongly advise you verify the pool table room sizes
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.

The dimensions of your game room will determine the size of a 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 since this is the true size of the pool table and it helps to figure out the appropriate pool table room size and the right cut of pool table cloth in case you need to have your pool table refelting service taking care of during the setup.
Importance of having the correct pool table sizes if you need to have a pool table refelting service
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.
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. Sometimes there could be a repair that may have gone unnoticed at the time of the purchase and you find out about it once the pool table is in pieces.
If said repair is minor we may be able to fix it right at the time of installation, however, if the issue requires additional materials that we were not aware of we will have to come back for a second appointment to properly handle your pool table repair. 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.
