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 area, then perhaps you want to select a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables could be just as much fun as practical ones. They are utilized to display freshly cut figurines, flowers 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 are more of an interior decorating statement. A living room is not just a room where TV is stored, and a table might be a great centerpiece for a room where the very idea of living is something besides watching TV.
