    Essential Tips for Buying a Pool Table

    A pool table is a must-have for any game room, and with so many different options available, it can be hard to know where to start when shopping for one.

    That said, below are a few essential things to keep in mind before or during your purchase to help you narrow down your choices and find the perfect one for your space.

    1. The Slate

    Slate is an important factor in how good a pool table is. A pool table without a slate surface is only suitable for kids and isn't worth more than $100. A lot of people think that a one-piece slate pool table is better than a three-piece slate pool table because there are no seams. Actually, it's the opposite.

    A one-piece slate pool table has a frame that is one continuous piece with no breaks or joints. This type of pool table is typically four-legged, and the legs are the only adjustable points for leveling the table. The way to level a one-piece slate pool table depends on the leg type - some require shims to be placed under the legs, while others have turn feet that can be adjusted. A 1-piece slate pool table will gradually start to sag in the middle over time due to the weight, which then causes the balls to roll towards the center of the table. This can eventually make the table unplayable and no fun for anyone.

    2. The Size

    The average room size recommendations can help you determine what size pool table is best for your room. The recommendations are based on the size of the playing surface and how much space you need around the table to use a full-length pool cue. These are just recommendations, and you can adjust them based on the length of your cue and how much space you have in your room.

    For example, a home 8' pool table will fit just fine in a room that measures 13'-2" x 16'-10", with a bit of extra room to spare for a 52" cue.
