Pool Table Refelting With Interior Decor In Mind

By Lisa Williamson


Billiards is a wonderful pastime, and a wonderful inclusion in any home that has the available size for it. Of course, they do tend to take up very large areas, so they are not suitable to every home. Those who have the space are blessed. However, after enjoying the game for several years, the felt may begin to show its way there and tear. Below are smart options with pool table refelting for residents of Denver, CO.

Being a piece of furniture, it should be treated as such. Therefore, the piece should blend in as best as possible with the rest of the furnishings in the space. Most of these are generally covered in turf green felt, but there are many other options these days, and consumers are taking advantage of them.

In some cases, the need to replace the felt follows an accident with the cue stick. It can be painful for the owner, as it is an added expense, but it can happen, and frequently does happen. Of course, replacement is necessary soon after, otherwise no one can continue to play on the surface until it is repaired.

Whether it's for interior design purposes, wear and tear, or an unfortunate accident, consumers have lots of choices today with regards to felt colors. Many opt for camel, because it's a soft color, considered neutral, and therefore blends well with other neutral colors and beyond. Some may prefer the deep red to blend in with their bolder design scheme. While very attractive, and striking, it can tire the eyes.

Another bold and popular choice is blue, but consumers can also stick with their traditional turf green color. Whatever the case, a felt replacement is the job of a professional. It simply must be perfect so as it does not interfere with the playing surface, and the direction to which the balls are aimed.

A specialist would come on the site, remove the existing felt, and replace it with a new one, according to the consumer's color choice. Obviously, this should not be left to just anyone to do, as it requires top-notch skills for top-notch results. There is a lot of work involved in replacing the felt, as the table and often the bumpers, will have to be somewhat dismantled.

Because this is such intricate work, and because it requires very fine tuned skills, the replacement certainly comes with a cost. As in all industries that are competitive, some charge more than others. To get the best value, it is recommended to seek out an experienced professional with the best prices.

More often than not, the company representative will provide an estimate after having seen the pool table in question. Some skilled laborers may charge by the hour, while others will give a fixed rate. Most consumers prefer to go with those that provide the fixed rate because, if the individual is having trouble with the installation, the consumer is not charged more than necessary.
