A Nice Billiard Light Can Really Dress Up Your Pool Room


Are you looking for a billiard light?

A nice light can put a nice touch of class in your pool – billiards room. The light in my pool room is custom made. My buddy made this light about 20 years back.

The light is made out of wood and on one side it is carved out to say “2 Bad 4 U” and the other side reads “2 Hot 4 U”. I did not think of this. My friend put these phrases on my light and delivered it to me just like that.

If you have a partying kind of pool room, you may want to go with one of those plastic fixtures like Budweiser or Coors makes. You can also find some cool plastic fixtures with billiards graphics on them.

If your table is i a large and spacious room with nice furniture all through the house, you might consider brass or some kind of fancy fixture.

Which ever way you go, remember to get the right size of light for your table and hang it low enough to make the table bright. I have a 4 foot fluorescent fixture in my custom made shade. These 2 4 foot bulbs light up my 7 foot Valley table nicely.

I have seen some lights that even have the sliders on them for scoring your match. I would suggest doing some shopping on line before buying the first light that you see.

There are many lights to choose from and chances are you will have your new light for a very long time. Taking a little extra time in picking out your billiard light can certainly be worth while.

When looking for your new light, take note on how the light is turned off and on. I like the ones that turn on with one switch. I have seen lights with 3 or 4 individual bulbs and they all need to be turned on separately. (Kind of a pain in the neck)

I hope this article helps you out a little while selecting A new light for your pool room or billiards parlor.
