    Hi mate, I'm still in the process of getting room done up, I'm needing to get a side door cut into garage first then going to sheet over 2 front garage doors. I am more likely going to opt for a full size table but waiting till walls are all sheeted to see exact room I have left. I think you will be fine with the dimensions you have given for your room so I would definitely go full size!!

    What did you end up with? 10 or 12ft? I'm having the same dilemma atm, and my room is only 18.9x15.25 ft. Or its actually 23 ft in lenght but there is a thin wall in the middle around the black spot if you know what I mean. My concern is the width.

    I think you should be able to get away with that width no problem.

    2 foot down each side

    and 6 foot at the spot end

    in the spot end there was a two seater settee

    A TV and a 4 foot fish tank full of fish and coral

    when we had finished the client was knocking a few balls around then he decided to rack them up and break off

    The white ball hit the pack of reds and jumped off the table and right through the glass fish tank , it was like something off Fools and horses , fish all over the carpet
    and me and my Mate rolling around in laughter on the drive home the van must have been all over the road .
    Thank you for that, Mr. Large. I hope you are well.

    Don't think "only 2 ' shorter". Think: a 12' table has 44% more area than a 10'. That is a lot!
