Family area tables do not simply need to be practical, they are able to 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 could be just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut figurines, flowers and pictures or something 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 interior planning 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 concept of living is something besides watching TV.
