Things To Consider When Buying A Pool Table Light

Posted on Kamis, 26 Mei 2011 |
What should you look for when purchasing a pool table light? This article will give you all the information you need in order to purchase a billiard light. Pool table lights come in many shapes and sizes, colors and styles. Assuming you already have the pool table, next you will need to figure out what length of light you will need.

As a general rule of thumb you will need 5 inches of light for every foot of pool table. For example a 7 foot pool table will need a billiard light with a minimum of 35 inches in length preferably 40 inches or more. You do not want to choose a short billiard light that will leave darkness around the edges of the pool table.

Another thing to consider is how high is the ceiling in relation to the pool table? The higher the ceiling, the larger the area the pool table light will cover. How much chain will you need to hang the light? Does the light come hard wired or soft wired? Hardwired means you cut the light on with a wall switch and soft wired means the light must be plugged into a wall outlet and turned on via an inline switch.

Something else you will need to keep in mind is what style of light bulbs will you choose? Florescent or standard? Many pool table light manufacturers can build your billiard light with either or. So be sure to ask when purchasing your pool table light fixture.

If you really want to get creative with your billiard lighting you don’t have to use a traditional pool table light at all. You could use two or three pendant lights that have multiple light bulbs in each pendant to light the pool table adequately. When you think about it that way your lighting options are unlimited. Imagine 2, 3 or even 4 pendant lights hanging all in a row above your billiard table. Each can be wired to turn all of them on with the flip of a single switch or even multiple switches.
