Family area tables do not only need to be practical, they may 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 choose a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables could be just as much fun as practical ones. They are utilized to display freshly cut figurines, pictures 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 interior planning statement. A living room is not just a room the place that the TV is stored, and a table may be a great centerpiece for the room where the very idea of living is something apart from watching TV.
