Family room tables do not simply need to 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 family area, 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 something that is important to you. Some living rooms are homey and lived in, where others are hardly used at all and are also more of an decor statement. A living room is not just a room the place that the TV is stored, and a table could be a great centerpiece to get a room where the concept of living is something aside from watching TV.
