Making Room for a Pool Table

Just because a pool table will fit in a room, doesn’t necessarily mean that there will be ample room to play. Our pool table room chart below should help you to plan your gameroom space a little easier. The dimensions below represent an ideal space, but remember if one or more walls in the room are open it can make all the difference. And, if you are short on space, don’t let it deter you. We can almost always find a solution to make your pool table playable. Standard cue sticks are typically 57-58 inches in length. But we can also supply you with cue sticks in shorter, custom sizes too!

  1. I have a pool table I brought from Baltimore when I transferred here. I have an outside enclosed outdoor area That where i was thinking about putting the table moved too. I’m not sure that with this heat that’s a good idea. What do you guys think?

    1. James, I,ve had many clients setup pool tables that were not true “outdoor” pool tables outside under a covered patio without any trouble. I’d order an outdoor cover to protect against dust from setting into the felt and to stop sunlight from damaging the playing surface and/or fading the finish. Best, David.

  2. Trying to make a formal dining into a game room – dimensions are 12’8×13’0 is this at all possible?

    1. Jennifer, no i would say the room is too square, too small on the length. Pool tables are rectangular and really work best in a room the same shape. Imagine if your pool table was 3 foot by 6 foot you’d want to allow about 42-58 inches of cuestick clearance on all four sides of the pool table for comfortable shooting room. Best, DK.

  3. Room is 14′ by 18′ but the long end of the table would need to fit in the 14′. One side of the 18′ is open. Deciding between 6′ and 7′ table – sounds like I may be OK with 7′?

    1. Hi Luc, you’re right a seven foot pool table would fit the best. You would still need to use a 48 inch cuestick for some shots but that’s only if you center the table end to end in the 14 foot section of the room. If you skewed the table more towards the opening along the 18 foot section of wall then you could probably use the table without the need for the shorter cue length I previously mentioned. Happy cueing, David.

    1. Hello Karl, a 7 foot pool table would work although it might be a little tight but short cuesticks would solve the problem. I sell cues ranging in size from 36-52 inch. Thanks for reading my blog, David.

    1. Hello Angela, the outside dimensions of a pool table are different depending on which size you order. If we’re talking about an 8ft pool table then the outside dimensions are approximately 55 by 99 inches and the interior dimensions are 44 by 88 inches. Best regards, David.
