Are you an avid billiards player, or are you just starting to learn the game? In either case, you probably have a few questions about purchasing billiards equipment for the game room in your home. Specifically, you might wonder “What is the size of a standard billiards table?”
Billiards tables come in a variety of sizes, so it’s important to choose the one that will work best for your space. This might be a standard size billiards table or one that’s slightly smaller or larger. No matter which size you choose, the rules of the game remain the same.
What Size are Billiards Tables?
Pool tables (a version of pocket billiards) are normally between seven and nine feet long, though different sizes can be used. The standard home table is eight feet and is perfect for a completely enjoyable at-home billiards experience.Sometimes the term “billiards” is used interchangeably with “pool,” though billiards is a broader term used to describe a variety of table games in the billiards category. Most of our customers are in search of a pool table for their home or business. Whether a 7-foot, 8-foot, or 9-foot table is ideal for your space, you’ll find the perfect table at Juniper.
What Size of Billiards Table Should You Choose?
The size of billiards table you choose depends on personal preference as well as the amount of space you have available.
When you figure out space, make sure you have ample room, but not just for the table itself. You also need to be able to move comfortably around the table. Also account for any additional furniture you will have in the table area. A pub table and chairs might be nice to have near your billiards table if you have the space.
Choose the largest billiards table that you can fit comfortably in your game room space for the most authentic playing experience. Then, get ready to host all of your family and friends! With a pool table of your own, your home will be the gathering spot where everyone loves to be.
