Just when you thought your pool table was all about fun and games… Turns out there’s a science to getting your lighting just right. Low enough to illuminate your game without inappropriate shadows but without the obvious pitfalls of broken noses.
Also – unless the aforementioned table is in your man (or lady) cave, you will be judged for shoving a cheap tin light above your pride and joy. Minus points if the globes are painted to look like billard balls.
The light should hang 80-90 cm above the table for a good combination of asthetics and functionality. See the diagram below regarding chain placement. Good quality pool table lights are heavy.
A pool table fixture can be a magnificent addition to your home – feel free to use the glamour of to sell the idea of a pool table to your significant other if necessary
