When in the market for a pool table, there are a few things that you should ask yourself before you make a purchase (other than whether or not you can afford it). Remember this is a one-time purchase and will stay in your family for generations if your pool table is properly maintained. Take your time and select the right pool table that will best suit the needs of you and your family. By answering these few simple questions, selecting a pool table will be easier.
Eight Questions to Ask Yourself:
- Who will be using the pool table primarily?
- Is this going on the main level of your home?
- Will it need to be installed upstairs, or downstairs in the lower level/basement?
- How large is the entrance into the room?
- Do you have a particular table style that helps you to remember the good old days with grandpa?
- Do you prefer a ball return table or a more traditional style with drop leather pockets?
Will the pool table match the interior decor?
Does the room have sufficient lighting?
The answers to these questions can help determine the approximate size and style of pool table you would like to purchase. We know that looking through all the styles of woods and finishes can be overwhelming. Luckily, you have Century Billiards and Gameroom to help with every step of the purchasing process. We even offer in-home consultations to ensure that your new pool table size is just right so it doesn’t take up too much space and also will be able to be installed without having to remove doors. We also provide accessories such as lighting so you can get maximum visibility while playing. We can also help you build a custom pool table!
Another thing you might want to consider is where your pool table is manufactured. The best quality pool tables are made right here in the USA. Don’t accept any imitations or imports. There is a huge difference between American hardwood pool tables that come delivered and installed by pool table technicians such as those at Century Billiards and an imported pool table purchased over the internet.
