The most crucial part of a pool table is the tabletop. It is the base of your pool where playing skills get unleashed. Picking the right material is the most important, especially when it comes to money and purpose. Whether you’re looking for some entertainment or as a centre-piece for the veteran players, the table’s material needs the most consideration of all.

Styles and aesthetics :

The size of a pool table means it will demand a lot of attention. It also makes it vital to consider how the potential table complements or clashes with the space you have. The modern and unique tables are a superb addition to specific decors; they require someone who has an eye for the minute details to avoid mismatching.

Usually, tables come in three categories :

  • Classic


The basic tables have been around for decades. They come covered in vintage green or red felt and have a hardwood frame. The legs of the table have an antique pattern and style that you may have seen on the older chairs or tables.


  • Contemporary –

  • Modern :



The tables come with pedestals instead of table legs, various assorted pocket designs and felt colours. Besides, they also come with tracks or neon lighting and glass LED top colours that help highlight shot angles. 



Size and spacing :

   Before you make a purchase, it is imperative to measure if you have enough space. Even if you think the table will fit in your room comfortably, there must be adequate space around all the sides of the table for the players to shoot. Consider what size of cues you want to use and whether adults or children will use adults or children. Remember, you’ll need some more space for a rack or cabinet to store extra cues and balls.
