What is the best lighting for a pool table?

1 Answer
The best lighting for a pool table won’t be too bright and will reduce glare and shadows on the felt during the game. If the light fixture is immobile, its height should be at least 65 inches, and if it is portable, its height should be at least 40 inches from the bed of the table. Any light directed on the players should not be blinding. On 1stDibs, find a variety of vintage and contemporary lighting solutions for your pool table.
