Family room tables do not just need to 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, then perhaps you want to choose a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables might be just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut flowers, figurines and pictures or whatever that is important to you. Some living rooms are homey and lived in, where others are hardly used at all and therefore are more of an interior decorating statement. A living room is not just a room in which the TV is stored, and a table may be a great centerpiece for any room where the thought of living is something in addition to watching TV.
