I am designing a pool room. I am thinking about matching the pool table color (green) to the card/game tables. The game table will be the exact color green but just not be felt, it will be laminate. Do you think it will clash? What about one being laminate, and the other being felt?


Pool table here and game/card table here

Yes, No, Beautiful, Keep Looking?

Personally I think Green felt on tables is boring. What does the rest of the room look like? Can you get away with a different color? I have a natural maple table with black felt and I get nothing but compliments on it.

your talkin pool table? Do you get a lot of dust on the black felt? Hard to keep clean? I have a black and khaki pool table felt for a mahogony colored table and a couple people told me the black is a pain cause you can see every single speck of dust or dirt.

Pool table cloth does not have to match the poker table. We went with camel cloth (or beige, really) for our matte mahogany Olhausen table. We have beige carpet in the game room, so our beige chalk dust is not visible on the table/carpet. A buddy of mine has red cloth, red chalk, and beige carpets... not a good combination since red chalk is visible on the carpet.

Make the pool table the focus... get the finish/color/style right, then worry about the poker table.

PS: your linked poker table, as well as the other guy's, look like crap compared to your linked pool table.

I do get a few cat hairs on it, but I keep a nice cover on it so it stays clean. A couple minutes with a lint roller and it looks great again.

No but you can duplicate it for cheap if you have the space =) They have a few of those tables left in NJ - pretty decent condition, I think they have six years of play on them.

The little kitchen is Ikea and I can't believe the quality vs price.

It has a cover on it and that is covered with tools, dust, and a bunch of other crap. Once I get it cleared out I will post some.

I think it's easy to get caught up with having things match. I wanted to go with the traditional pool table green felt, but the wife wanted charcoal colored felt. I have to say that I'm glad we went with charcoal and it does not attract any lint and is just as easy to keep clean.

Have you already bought the pool table? If not and if you have enough space be sure to get a "regulation" sized table ( 41/2 X 9). You can easily play "down" to a smaller table like at your favorite sports bar but it is very hard to have a small table at home and then play up to a regulation sized table elsewhere - most coin-op tables are 4 X 8 or even sometimes smaller.

We had our pool table for many years with a light blue felt that looked good and didn't show the chalk dust hardly at all and as others posted I wouldn't worry about matching up colors.

Card Playing? I'd get a folding table so it's out of the way when no one wants to sit down and play cards and, instead, use the space for something more active and fun - like one or three pinball games - LOL!
Good Luck with your room.

Questions for those with a pool table. Do you let kids play on them? Once my basement is finished, im not sure if I want nephews and nieces playing on them. The two that concern me at 3 and 6. I dont want them ruining the felt, or putting dents in my new drywall. How do you handle kids? I dont have any of my own, so my house is not very kid friendly.
