Whatever the motivation for buying a Pool Table, for the family home or business, there is an appropriate table for every room-size and budget.
If you’re designing a new home, even better!
Pool tables range in size from 7 foot x 3 foot 6 inches (213cm x 107cm) to the Traditional full size tables at 12 foot x 6 foot (366cm v 183cm).
One of the most important factors you must take into consideration when working out what size fits best, is the room to make your shots.
It is generally recommended that a minimum clearance of 150 cm is needed between the pool table and the wall.
This provides ample room to not only move around the table but to pull off some rippers with a more than generous cue stroke.
Just who will predominantly be playing is also a factor that needs to be taken into account. Naturally if the table is going to be played outdoors you’ll want an outdoor pool table but either way the durability of some tables in particular the cloth will determining factor.
As Pool Tables really do bring family and friends together you may also want to consider seating from the robust lounge to the stools and tables.
To give you a better understanding of what room you need, refer to the table below.

|7′ x 3’6″ (2.13 x 1.07)||17′ x 13′ (5.18 x 4.11)||15′ x 11’6″ (4.57 x 3.50)|
