Accessorizing Your Pool Table

Whether you are a bar owner with a room set up for pool or a home owner designing your rec room or basement table area, creating the right ambiance and having the right accessories is key to the whole pool playing experience. Having a pool table at all is fantastic, but playing is much more fun when it has that pool hall feel. It's also easier to get games of nine ball, eight ball, cut throat and others going if you have the right tools for playing and keeping score.

Every pool room needs a wall clock. Finding the perfect wall clock to fit your decor can be fun. There are a lot to choose from, and The Pool Hustler has several clocks to fit the bill, from beer themed clocks to decorator clocks. In fact, once you get a clock, you can find a pool table light to match and complete the mood. The light over your pool table is key. It will be important in seeing to shoot, so you should make sure you get one that you can hang the right height from the table, and that is long enough to light the entire table. If you can't hard wire it into the ceiling, you'll need to plug it in, so make sure you find one to reach whatever outlets you have.

You'll need somewhere to put your cues, billiard balls, racks, chalk, and other supplies as well. You can find plenty of gorgeous cue racks at The Pool Hustler, both wall mount and floor mount. Keep in mind that wall mount racks will be better for you if space is tight, and many have a shelf or a drawer you can use to store the miscellaneous small supplies. A floor rack is meant for a pool hall or bar room where you will be storing 20 or more cues - they are quite large and may not fit in your space if you have a home table.

Have you thought about seating, a bar area and a place to rest drinks and snacks? You should. Your fellow pool players will want a place to sit down when they aren't playing, and a place to put their drinks or eat if you have food. You should also consider some kind of bar if you have a home table. Having drinks and mixers in easy reach keeps the party going and lets you play without guests wandering off into parts of your house you may want kept private.

Did you know that having the right decor on the walls will set the mood as well? You can buy posters, mirrors and wall hangings to set the mood. Beer posters and beer mirrors are the most traditional, but don't over look a sport theme - it can put people in the mood to play. Investing in a chalk board is smart - it helps keep score when you practice competition pool at home, and it can make a pool line up go more smoothly in a bar to have a sign in board. However you decorate your personal or private pool room, the right ambiance will make people want to stay and play.
