Family room tables do not simply need to be practical, they will 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 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 everything that is important to you. Some living rooms are homey and lived in, where others are hardly used at all and are more of an home design statement. A living room is not just a room where TV is stored, and a table may be a great centerpiece for any room where the thought of living is something other than watching TV.
