Family area tables do not just need to be practical, they may 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 room. Decorative tables might be just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut pictures, figurines 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 home design statement. A living room is not just a room in which the TV is stored, and a table could be a great centerpiece for your room where the very idea of living is something other than watching TV.
