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 area, then perhaps you want to purchase 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 figurines, pictures 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 decor statement. A living room is not just a room where the TV is stored, and a table may be a great centerpiece to get a room where the very idea of living is something besides watching TV.
