Family room tables do not just 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 room, then perhaps you want to choose 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 pictures, figurines and flowers or whatever 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 home design statement. A living room is not just a room in which the TV is stored, and a table can be quite a great centerpiece for a room where the concept of living is something besides watching TV.
