How to Put a Pool Table on Carpet


Pool tables provide ideal gathering spaces at parties, giving people a place to play competitive games with one another while catching up over refreshments. Although pool tables are ideally placed on hardwood floors, you can place them on carpeting if absolutely necessary. The carpeting will cause the table to become uneven, requiring you to have to level it before you can properly use it.

Things You'll Need

  • Pool table
  • Tarp
  • Carpeted room
  • Four levels
  • Marble
  • Wood shims
  • Place the tarp underneath your pool table, and use it to help you slide your pool table onto the carpeting without damaging the table or the fibers on your carpet.

  • Remove the tarp from underneath the pool table once you have it positioned properly in the room.

  • Place a level along all four sides of the pool table, looking to see which sides of the pool table may need leveling.

  • Slide wood shims underneath any legs you need to lift until your levels tell you that all four sides of the pool table are level.

  • Place a marble in the center of the pool table, and watch to see if it begins rolling in any direction. If it stays in the center of the table without moving, you are finished. If it rolls in any direction, place additional wood shims under the legs on that side of the table until the marble stays still in the center of the pool table.
