Pool Table Lights Specifications
There are a couple of features and specifications of pool table lights that should be reviewed before taking a look at the different styles available. You need to ensure that your fixtures will be secured, with just the right amount of light for your gaming pleasure.
The pool table lights’ height should typically be around 40” above the table, but no higher than 70”. Between 40” and 70” is a great range for the perfect amount of lighting, without being too bright or too dim.
The pool table lights’ length depends on the size and width of your table. You can decide which size lights to use by taking a look at the handy sizing chart table below. Remember that the same information applies whether you are using one or multiple lights in a row:
The available pool table sizes offer different lengths and depths, which can help to determine which style of lights you’d like to choose for your billiards room.
Cool Pool Table Lights
The scope of what is and isn’t cool can vary from person to person, and the interior design world is often redefining the meaning of cool itself. However, there are several timeless pieces that will always be known as “cool”. Several ideas for cool table lights include those made from barn wood, different colored lamp shades, vintage colorations (such as green and pink), imprinted lamp shade designs, rubbed bronze, and much more.
Next, let’s take a look at some of the most popular lighting styles for your billiards table.

Stained Glass Pool Table Lights
Also known as “Tiffany” style, the stained glass pool table light can be a beautiful addition to your ceiling. These fixtures are often adorned with colorful decorations, almost in a mosaic-like pattern on the glass shade of the lights. They can be fixated to an iron bar, which attaches from the ceiling and hangs at exactly the right height.
This is a great choice for anyone who is looking to add a more antique feel to their home, further pulling together the golden oldie style of a classic games room.
Vintage Pool Table Lights
Vintage pool table lights can either be handmade or produced to mimic a vintage style. There are a wide variety of vintage styles available to choose from. Some popular favorites include lights made out of an upside-down feeding trough, with the rustic metal adding a genuine touch, and the refurbished industrial hanging light, which uses vintage materials salvaged from machines with an Edison light bulb for a vintage look. Several other styles are available that can be made from old pieces of furniture, salvaged wood, different metals, and even stained glass.

Rustic Pool Table Lights
Rustic pool table lights often come from old and natural materials. The term “rustic” itself refers to old metal which has slightly rusted over, giving it a genuine and well-used look. Many homeowners love inviting rustic styles into their houses, which can look especially neat when adorning a classic game room.
Rustic lights are often made from metal or wooden troughs, industrial materials, or pieces of furniture. They are not required to be vintage in order to be considered rustic.
Contemporary Pool Table Lights
Before delving into the details of a contemporary pool table light, it’s important to highlight the difference between contemporary and modern. People tend to confuse the two because there are certain similarities that can compare the two styles. However, contemporary is a style all of its own, with many features that are independent from that of a modern look.
Contemporary defines anything that is current and trending, while modern takes its cue from the past. There is a definitive modern style that will never change, whereas contemporary fits the times and preferences of the moment. With this being said, contemporary pool table lights are often boxy, square-shaped, and with several minimalistic devices. They add a great touch of modernity and a city-like feel to your room when you install them.

Custom Pool Table Lights
Aside from the huge variety of creative and classic pool table lights available on the market, you always have the option to make some custom designs that would fit perfectly with the personality of your room.
Do you like some stained glass designs, but you are also into modern and contemporary styles? If so, you can combine the two to make a custom fixture that nobody else in the world will ever have
The beauty of creating custom lights is that it’s easy to get creative and come up with a multitude of ideas that have yet to be produced. Looking back on some of the vintage designs, you can see how others used to fashion lights out of wooden troughs or barn tools. You can apply the same thought to your custom idea and let your imagination soar.
There are other ways to customize your lights, too; you can imprint the lamp shades with your favorite design or decal. Is your game room sports-themed? Want to show your loyalty for a specific team? Get their team name branded on your lights, so your guests will see them and smile when they enter the room.
