Our Top 5 Uses of Trays in the Home
Posted: Mar 05 2020
Most people think of trays as just for serving. In reality, trays are a practical and stylish way to organise and decorate your home. Here are a few of our favourite uses:
1. Living room
If you’re as tired of perpetually lost TV remote controls as we are then a rectangular tray such as these might be the answer to your problems. Not only will it make the living room look more put together than if they were strewn about, but it will also help you to keep them all in one place. It’s a win-win.
A tray on a chest of drawers or counter is a beautiful way to bring naturally aesthetic bedside items such as perfumes, candles and photos together in a way that looks stylish and deliberate. Or if, like me, you’re someone who has a habit of leaving their cosmetics scattered about the room instead of in a bag then a tray would be a clever, alternative way of keeping them organised.
A tray in the kitchen is a well-known essential. If you like to keep frequently used ingredients like salt, pepper, olive oil and garlic out and readily available but you want to keep surfaces looking tidy then a round tray such as this one would act as a sleek catch-all for such items. A large rectangle tray is also good for bringing plates, cutlery and glasses to the dining area all at once and makes tidying up easier.
Likewise, trays bring bathroom items such as toothbrushes, hand soap and moisturiser effortlessly together. Or a larger tray in the guest bathroom is a lovely way to keep soap and fresh towels out for anyone to use during their stay.
Tumblers, shakers, and bottles already have a timeless elegance about them when on display. Keeping them out on a tray instead of in a cupboard looks sophisticated and makes it easy to transport to wherever you’re entertaining.
