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 family area, then perhaps you want to purchase 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 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 planning statement. A living room is not just a room where the TV is stored, and a table can be quite a great centerpiece for a room where the thought of living is something aside from watching TV.
