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 living room area, then perhaps you want to invest in a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables could 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 interior decorating statement. A living room is not just a room where TV is stored, and a table could be a great centerpiece to get a room where the thought of living is something other than watching TV.
