Family room tables do not should just be practical, they can 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 area, then perhaps you want to purchase a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables can be just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut flowers, pictures and figurines or anything that is important to you. Some living rooms are homey and lived in, where others are hardly used at all and are more of an interior design statement. A living room is not just a room the place that the TV is stored, and a table can be quite a great centerpiece for the room where the very idea of living is something aside from watching TV.
