Why it’s important to know the pool table sizes and game room dimensions?
Knowing the pool table size and game room dimensions are very important factors when it comes to purchasing a table, new felt, and also for pool table moves or installations.
When purchasing a pool table and you need it moved up or downstairs, it is important to know if it is greater than the standard 8″ pool table size. Larger tables usually have a price difference than the standard to smaller size pool tables when it comes to moving or installing those pool table sizes. It also let us know how much manpower is needed to have the job completed efficiently, safely, and in a timely manner.
If unaware of the actual pool table size while purchasing felt, it could complicate things for both you and the installer. This error could be very costly because it would require you to purchase an additional cut of cloth if the table is larger than originally advised. It could also incur costs if the installer has to make an additional trip out to you home. If the table happens to be smaller it would not cost additional but it could extend the time spent on the services due to the need for re-measurements.
Making sure the room size is sufficient enough to allow comfortable gameplay is another factor. Once the table has been installed in a specific area, moving it elsewhere due to the size and room position could be costly. Most people tend to try moving the table themselves because it may be just a few inches, but please be cautious, such moves can and will damage the frame of your pool table. 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.
