Need Help with Pool Table (Ping Pong Top) and Light

dlosapioOctober 18, 2009

I am finishing out a basement space that with one room to be used as a game room. We will have a pool table and also a ping pong top that is used on top of the pool table.

As we were out buying the pool table and looking at pool table lights it occurred to me that a traditional pool table light will NOT work when using the ping pong table top, it would be far too low and interfere with almost every shot.

My question is, what alternatives do I have for lighting the pool table?? Recessed (can) lighting is a thought but I worry that it will cast shadows on the playing area. Track lighting is another option but comes with the same concerns. Seems recessed is the best option, can anyone suggest a way to place cans over the table to minimize any issues?

Thanks
