Family room tables do not should just be practical, they may 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 invest in 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 pictures, flowers and figurines or whatever 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 where TV is stored, and a table might be a great centerpiece for a room where the very idea of living is something other than watching TV.
