Pool Table on Area Rug

Getting Pool Table Centered on Rug

We are often asked if it is okay to put a billiard table on a rug. The answer is: absolutely. We were able to get this Gustav Beach Manufacturing pool table in Coto de Caza, California aligned easily. The homeowner had the rug in place (and gave time for it to relax). The pool table light fixture was pre-hung in the correct spot, making centering the frame on the rug a breeze.

Pool tables can be placed on top of rugs. Even rugs on top of wall-to-wall carpet. They look nice and frame the space. It is pertinent that the pool table is placed on the rug by a professional. Adding a carpet after the table is already set up is very tricky. Remember, improper moving techniques can damage even the strongest billiard tables.

Also, make sure to consult our game room planning chart to help you determine the sizes of our game room furniture and to ensure adequate space for play.
