How To Hang Your Billiard Lights - Articles Surfing

Billiard lights give your game room the professional look. Whether they are stained glass or a classic solid color, they top off the decorating aspect of your room. We all know that these lights are to be hung over top of your pool table, but how low do they hang? What's the best way to hang them? I have answers to these questions and more...read on!

The first thing we need to discuss is how low to the table these lights are supposed to hang. The first thing you need to do is decide where you want your pool table. Once you have it in the spot you know you want it, you can then begin the light installation. The light should hang 34 inches from the table. This measurement is taken from the table surface to the brim of the light. This is, of course, the minimum height requirement. You have the freedom to make the light higher if you wish, but keep in mind that the light is meant for the table, not the room.

Another common question is "what size fixture do I need?". This all depends on the size of your table. If you have a 7 foot table, a 2 lamp fixture would be adequate. If you have an 8 foot table, you would generally use a 3 lamp fixture http://www.gameroompimps.com/Game-Room-Pool-Table-Lamps.html. Tables larger than 8 feet should definitely have 4 or more lamp shades on the lighting fixture. With pool table accessories, it's always important to take the size of the table into account before purchasing.

All billiard lights should come with installation instructions and the correct hardware. Usually, this would include a hanging chain and ceiling mounts. It's a pretty simple set up, you just need to be careful not to damage the lamp shades. Depending on the size and style of billiard light, they can be pretty heavy.

Bulbs for billiard lights are also something to consider. Never use standard household light bulbs! These bulbs tend to generate more heat and in turn, can severely damage your shades. The type of bulb usually depends on the type of light you buy. This information should be included in the instructions that come with it. One bulb that can be recommended for any pool light fixture is a G-40 frosted bulb 100 watt maximum. These look a lot nicer in your game room since they don't give off the blinding light a normal bulb does.
