Family area tables do not should just 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 living room, then perhaps you want to invest in a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables might be just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut flowers, figurines and pictures or everything 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 home design statement. A living room is not just a room where TV is stored, and a table may be a great centerpiece for your room where the thought of living is something in addition to watching TV.
