Family area tables do not simply 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 room, then perhaps you want to invest in 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 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 they are more of an decor statement. A living room is not just a room where TV is stored, and a table could be a great centerpiece to get a room where the thought of living is something other than watching TV.
