Pool Table Room Size Chart Guide

The size of a room needed for a pool table depends on the size of the room in square feet. The height or depth of the room is not important because pool tables can be installed at any height and depth.

There are two different measurements used to determine the size of a room needed for a pool table:

– Square Feet (SF) – this is usually used when you have an old home with irregular space. It’s easier to measure in feet rather than by measuring each side and doing some math.

– Feet And Inches (FEI) – this is used when you have an old home with square footage measurements, it’s harder to measure in ft/in than it is by just using sqft measurements.

How to Pick the Right Size for Your Billiard Room

The best way to figure out the size of your pool room is to measure it and make a design plan.

In general, a pool table size chart is determined by the length and width of the room. For example, if you want to build a 60-inch by 30-inch by 30-inch billiard table, you need to measure a 90-inch length for each side and use an inch for each foot on the feet. There are some exceptions to this rule such as when designing an eight-foot long pool table or lining in concrete.

Composite pool tables use materials like MDF and PVC to give them the same appearance as solid wood, but they have less maintenance needs than solid wooden tables.

While there are pros and cons to both types of pool tables, most people would agree that composite ones offer a better value for their money due to their lower price point.
