Q. What is the ideal room size for a pool table? A. The room size depends on the size of the table. I recommend five feet (60") of clearance around the periphery of the table for standard 57" cues. Or, the distance from the wall to the playing surface should be the length of the cue plus approximately 6" for each side and end. For example, if you're using 48" cues, the clearance around the table would be 54".
Q. How high should a light be hung above a pool table? A. Generally, the light's rim is hung about three feet above the playing surface, but the overriding factor is the brightness of the light. You want the entire playing surface illuminated without flooding the surrounding area.
