7 footer w/57″cues vs 8 footer w/52″ cues?

A 7 foot table with 57 inch cue sticks or an 8 foot table with having to use 52 inch cue sticks. I understand that the
stated room size requirements make me at the minimum for a 7 footer but every time I walk into a billiards store
they all say …you can get away with an 8 footer….so

Which one would you go with…..my room is 12’10″ x 18’0″….and if my calculations are correct these are my options

I am just a recreational player and this would be my first table. I am wondering if the 7 footer will be too small to really enjoy
and/or would the 8 footer really be annoying withy smaller cues being used at least some of the time if not all of the time.

Any help or opinions would be greatly appreciated.

I do not what to regret the purchase size….
