Billiard Room Flooring
An important thing that is often overlooked when designing a game room is the type of flooring to be used. When something as large and heavy as a Pool Table is in the room, special consideration must be taken to have the proper floor covering below the table.
As we said, your table is heavy. Pool tables can easily weigh 1,000+ pounds. Add that to the weight of other furniture in the room and people enjoying the room and the importance of the right flooring and covering becomes pretty evident.
Below the flooring, you want to make sure the support system is stable enough to accommodate the weight of your Pool table and game room contents. If your unsure your floor can hold a billiard table, consult an engineer before placing it in the room. Once you are certain the structure is sturdy and sound, it's time to look at the different floor covering options.
Hardwood flooring is going to add some extra stability to the floor. It's recommended that you put an area rug under the table that is big enough for all four legs to be on the rug to keep the table from sliding.
