Pool Table Room Sizes Help Guide
Knowing the pool table room sizes is of the utmost importance when deciding which pool table to purchase.
This not only will help you pick out the right pool table size but it also helps in the planning of pool table installations.
Also, take into account the furniture you already have in the room or the furniture you plan to buy in the near future.
This is very important because you need to have enough room for adequate gameplay. Also when the pool table setup is complete and you need the table moved even for just a few inches, it will have to be disassembled to properly relocate it.
If you’re thinking about buying a pool table or if you already have one in pieces. 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.

We have put together a chart with the different pool table sizes and pool table room sizes to help in your efforts. Having the pool table sizes handy also helps in case you’re interested in taking care of your pool table refelting service.
This is because when we order the cut of felt to recover a pool table, it is always pre-cut to fit the specified size of the playing surface.
Complications from not having the pool table sizes and/or pool table room sizes
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 or a complete move. The industry norm is supplied, pre-cut pool table felt for the refelting service.
If an 8 ft table is expected to be serviced and we encounter a 9 ft table we may not even have the correct cloth size to finish your job, this could incur additional trip charges.
Sometimes there are minor issues that may go unnoticed and we may end up finding out about it when we disassemble the pool table. The pool table repair may be of minor importance, such as a missing bolt or a screw.
In this case, we can easily fix it during the same appointment. However, if the issue requires additional materials, we would have to schedule a second appointment.
