If you have hardwood floors, tile, or concrete and would like to place a rug under the table, it’s personal preference. Rugs can be beneficial in dulling the echo of the balls rolling across the table or just in dressing up the look of the room. I would not recommend putting a rug on top of a carpeted floor; they tend to bunch up around the table. We ask that if you want to put a rug under your table that you have it in place before we arrive, and we will help you adjust it if necessary.
