Help with Game Room -- Rug Under Pool Table?
We just bought a pool table and are trying to decide if we need/should place a rug under it. Given the configuration of the room, if we use a rug, the pool table can't be centered on the rug, as you can see in the picture below. For reference, the shortest edge of the rug is about 1'3" from the edge of the pool table. The pool table is a standard 8x4 pool table.
Note: on the left-hand side of the room are window seats with cushions; the brick in the upper corner is the hearth for the fireplace. Also note that the walls at the bottom of the picture (the white parts) are fixed and restrict the bottom edge of the rug -- it can't be moved further down the room. The furniture can be moved if needed.
So, what do you think? Uncentered rug or no rug?
