Would This Pool Table Room Work?

Would This Pool Table Room Work?

I've lived in my house for about a year and a half, and I'm just starting to think about finishing my basement.

I would like to get a pool table, but I'm not sure my space will work.

I've got a daylight basement, so the foundation comes up about 3.5'. Above that height, I have about 12'6" across. This area however, does not completely surround the pool table.

The foundation comes out 9'6" on one side, and a couple fee less on the other (maybe 6' or 7'), otherwise it's open to the rest of the basement.

I also have two support beams at the same width as the foundation. I have about 18' from end to end.

In looking at a few pool table room size charts, it looks like my width will work with a 52" cue.

Will the smaller pool cue seem strange? Could I put the pool table to the more open end of the area and still use 58" cue?

    Here are some official dimensions for pool table spaces:

    3 1/2 x 7 pool table = 14 x 17 1/2 room space
    4 x 8 pool table = 14 1/2 x 18 room space 4 1/2 x 9 pool table = 15 x 19 room space

    If you feel that you may come up short on some of the edges you can consider getting a couple of shorter sticks for those shots. That is why they make them.
