Family room tables do not simply need to be practical, they may also add to your décor. Perhaps you want to buy 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 living room. Decorative tables may be just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut figurines, flowers and pictures or whatever that is important to you. Some living rooms are homey and lived in, where others are hardly used at all and so are more of an decor statement. A living room is not just a room where TV is stored, and a table could be a great centerpiece for the room where the very idea of living is something apart from watching TV.
