Family area tables do not only 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 family area, then perhaps you want to select a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables is often 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 therefore are more of an interior planning statement. A living room is not just a room in which the TV is stored, and a table can be quite a great centerpiece for the room where the very idea of living is something aside from watching TV.
