Designing Your Own At-Home Billiards Room
There’s nothing like a good game of pool to unwind after a hard day. Saloons and billiards halls around the world have known for decades how much fun people have playing pool. It’s a great way to socialize and have some good times. More people are taking the leap to setting up a pool room at home. These kinds of game rooms can be a great place for the whole family to spend some quality time together. If you like to entertain or have parties, a billiards room will be a hit with all your guests.
Billiards Room Size
You will want to start with the obvious when it comes to setting up a home pool room – the pool table. Pool tables take up a lot of space, and you want to ensure enough room around the perimeter of the table for people to make their shots. A regulation size pool table requires plenty of space, so be sure that you have enough room before you bring in a table. Remember that the idea for a pool room is a place to have some fun, so don’t cram too much table into too small a space. If you don’t have enough room in your basement or recreation room, you can build out, if you have the cash. Another alternative is to choose a smaller sized table. Even if it is not a regulation table, any sized pool table can be lots of fun.
Billiards Room Style
Think pool hall style when decorating your billiards room. If you already have a small wet-bar in the room that will go a long way toward creating the right atmosphere. Consider investing in some small neon signs to up the ante on pool room authenticity. You should also have a nice flat-screen television for players to watch when they are not shooting. Cool burgundy and deep green colours are the perfect colours for your home pool room décor.
If you are adding a billiards room to your house, go all out. Take the time to design and decorate the room with an authentic pub-style décor. You’ll save money by not having to go out to the clubs to play some pool. Before you know it, you may even become a pool shark that runs the table when your friends come over.
