I am in the process of creating a home pool room. I'm looking for ideas. Are there pictures out there of home pool rooms where I can get ideas? Anyone interested in submitting theirs?

If you want it to be profitable make sure you can sell alcohol.

High ceilings to help disperse the smoke.

Own your own tables, juke box, game machines, etc. (Cash income is always nice).

Don't trust your hired help.

Own the building if possible.

Tables don't matter - no matter which ones you buy they will be the wrong ones.

What is your location? If you are close to Spring Hill, Fl I like Rocky's layout. He has the bar area in the center and it is elevated about 6 feet to overlook tables on both sides. 10 GC's on one side and 4x8's on the other side. I would just extend his elevated area the whole length though.

Check and study your demographics. What type of people will you be catering to?

Jake, I may be completely off-base here, but I was under the impression he was asking about building a pool room in his home. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

OOPs.

Okay, in that case check with Spetty. From what I hear she has thought of everything.

Must be too early in the morning for me.

I am in the process of designing mine right now. When I built my home, I did not finish the basement, but always had the intention to at a later date. Though, I was so excited about having the room available and the walk-out, I bought a pool table. My intention is to build around it, and move it (professionally) when I do the flooring and ceilings.

I have one sticking point right now. Flooring. I cannot decided if a "pergo" type wood floor would be appropriate underneath the table, as I believe the "pergo" floats somewhat. Any opinions on carpet, "pergo", or otherwise?

The carpet would be much easier on your feet and legs, during long periods of playing. Fatigue will set in a lot sooner, with any hard floor surface.

P.S. Remodeling basements for pool tables eats up lots of existing storage space. Take note of the corner cabinets and bench seat that are loaded with stuff. And you don't want to see the other (wife's) side.

Thanks. I never had the room until a support pole was removed and a new beam added. Bringing the new beam and the table slates into the basement is the hardest part. I've posted here and on RSB how it was done, you can check it out at:

The most useful addition to any pool room would be a maid...........

I would rather be lucky than good.

Here are pictures of my garage "pool room". Functional, but not pretty! (Well what do you expect from someone named Billy Bob?)

This cracked me up

"My room is equipped with an "emergency ventilation switch" in case someone farts (opens garage door)."

What is really scary about your pool room, is that it is considered "upscale" in some areas. /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Very nice setup, I like what you did. Nothing better than watching racing and shooting pool. Has anyone jumped a ball near the TV!!!

That's one sharp looking table! Is it a Brunswick? Do you know which model?

The table is a customized Golden West. It was made for a movie star in Hollywood. The inlays are all wood. The playing surface is GRANITE, much more expensive than slate. Surface tables, all over the world, used for precision measurement, are made from granite.

The whole setup (table, light, chairs &amp; hard cover)is for sale... $3500
