Family area tables do not only need to be practical, they could also add to your décor. Perhaps you want to invest in 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 area. Decorative tables may be just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut pictures, figurines and flowers or something 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 design statement. A living room is not just a room where TV is stored, and a table might be a great centerpiece for any room where the thought of living is something other than watching TV.
