Last week we let all you readers know where to buy the pool table but this week we are going to take a look at some common questions to ask before you buy the pool table.
First know what size your game room is. This is important to know because it will help you find what size table can fit in that room. The table needs to have enough room on the sides for players to comfortably shoot. Generally pool tables come in three different sizes 7’x 4’6″, 8’x 4′, and 9’x 4’6″ if you want to see what dimensions the room should be check out this article. If for some reason your room is a bit smaller than suggested just adjust the cue size and buy shorter cues than the standard 58″ cue. The smaller the table the more clustered the balls will be and a larger table can add frustration forcing longer, more difficult shots on players.
Check the warranties on the table you never know what may happen also take a look at customer feedback make sure the table is up to pool enthusiasts standards.
We know you don’t want to hear it but don’t be thrifty and skimp when your buying furniture like a pool table. It’s going to be the centerpiece of the room so make sure your investment is well worth it, you will want to enjoy it for the next 50 years.
Choosing the color of your table depends the decor already set up in your game room. Blues and greens are easy on the eyes and won’t show chalk as easy. However, if you want the table to make a statement you can always opt for a red felt.
Don’t forget about accessories when you buying the table. We know the big purchase is the pool table but don’t forget to complete the look. A rack to hold your pool cues and some cleaning material will make your investment last longer.
