Family room tables do not should just be practical, they could also add to your décor. If you do not have a family or have a small family and do not spend much time in the living room area, then perhaps you want to purchase a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables could be just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut figurines, pictures and flowers or anything that is important to you. Some living rooms are homey and lived in, where others are hardly used at all and they are more of an interior planning statement. A living room is not just a room in which the TV is stored, and a table can be quite a great centerpiece for a room where the notion of living is something in addition to watching TV.
