Billiard Lighting requires task lighting. The ability to see and calculate my next move is so important with the geometrics. Don’t laugh but yes I have missed the Cue ball a number of times.  Smacking the white ball too far underneath can make it sail over the table top. No I am not a professional player but I need a little more light to see then the average person. Having too much light is better than having to little. The use of dimmers can help adjust the amount of light to soften the intensity. Legrand makes a new style called Adorne. This is worth looking into. For light fixtures Meyda Tiffany makes beautiful designs and shapes to illuminate the table top. Kichler Lighting also has a number of fixtures that will work well too.  I look for three sources of light for every room in the house.  In a room with a flat ceiling type I would recommend having recessed lights over the corners of the table. Put this on a separate switch or dimmer.

Having a hanging fixture centered over the table top that directs the light downwards will create an overlapping effect with the recessed lighting. A hanging fixture with six hundred watts of light from the use of traditional incandescent bulbs is better than a fixture with three hundred watts.  My point is to have more light and control this with a separate dimmer.  Incandescent bulbs are replaceable with LED types. LED bulbs offer different Kelvin temperature choices that can allow for a better visual effect onto the table top. If your ceiling is vaulted the use of a track system from Tech Lighting may create an alternative way to bring lighting to your table top areas.  Track systems can also bring extra light to storage areas for the Cue Stick racks and other related areas. Professional standards in lighting a Billiard Table are a little complicated to make sense of. I recommend talking to the Lighting professionals for advice for your room area.

Different ceiling heights and types may require a little more information gathering to make a better choice on purchases. Please remember the age group for the placement of the hanging fixture on top of the table. Young adults may unintentionally hit the fixture with their Cue Stick. Billiard tables have different sizes. I recommend finding a fixture that is linear in design to follow the length of the table top.  Four feet in length would be a guide for a table top of eight feet.  Yes numerous shapes, styles, and colors are available. The most important part of the fixture design is to have the light pointing down towards the table. Having the fixture about thirty six to forty inches off the table is a guide. Please remember who is going to use this table. The table position in the room should also allow for enough room to calculate and position the Cue Sticks without bumping into the walls and people sitting there watching me lose to my wife.
