Family room tables do not should just be practical, they can also add to your décor. Perhaps you want to invest in a more decorative table rather than a functional table if you do not have a family or have a small family and do not spend much time in the family area. Decorative tables could be just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut flowers, pictures and figurines or something that is important to you. Some living rooms are homey and lived in, where others are hardly used at all and they are more of an decor statement. A living room is not just a room where the TV is stored, and a table can be a great centerpiece for any room where the notion of living is something besides watching TV.
