Pool Table Lights and Lighting
No matter what billiards game you are playing, the pool table is your arena. Be it in your own home game room or a pool hall, and just like at your favorite sports stadium, proper lighting is important for players and spectators alike. Fortunately, here at PoolDawg we have some bright solutions with pool table light fixtures that can accent your room beautifully, while also supplying the perfect amount of light to the playing area so you can clearly see and line up your shots.
You can select from decorative metal lights, beautiful stained glass and Tiffany-style billiard lights, or the customizable 3-shade lights featuring metal shades in multiple colors as well as brass, chrome or black matte bar options. These pool table lights range in size from 48 to 68 inches and there are dozens to choose from.
Shedding Some Light on the Basics
There won’t be any unsightly cords dangling over your table, because all of the light bars we sell must be hard-wired, so make sure you have an electricity source above where you want to hang your light.
Some points about pool table lights:
- Any of our table lights will work over any sized table but you might want to choose one of the longer ones if your table is over 9 foot.
- Some wisdom about billiard table lighting that might strike a chord: The electrical cord runs up one of the hanging chains and through the decorative ceiling mount so it is virtually unnoticeable.
- The World Pool-Billiard Association says a light fixture should be a minimum of 40 inches above the bed of the table, but anywhere between 36 and 42 inches is acceptable.
- The general consensus is that fluorescent or compact fluorescent bulbs are optimal.
