Trays have fast become one of my favorites items to use to style a space. They are a great way to fill a large surface like a coffee table, and keep items contained.
Without the use of trays, your table tops can end up looking a bit cluttered, especially if you are displaying smaller objects.
I love using trays as a hard surface on a cocktail ottoman. It is a great way to serve your guests refreshments, as they can be moved quite easily.
I enjoy styling trays with some of the staple accessories I use in a lot of my room vignettes. Items like books, florals, boxes, candles, coasters
I love bringing in a tray that will add a great color or texture to the room. The more unique, the better
The scale of the tray should work with the surface you are placing it on. If you are working with a round or square ottoman or table, then you will want to use a round or square tray. When working with a rectangular table or ottoman, you will want to use a rectangular tray.
I like placing a tray on the bed in a guest bedroom with some items that your guests will appreciate. Maybe a few magazines, a note pad and pen, candles and a small floral arrangement
Adding a tray to your vanity table is also a great way to keep makeup and perfume bottles contained.
Use in the bathroom for all your toiletries
They even help to keep your office supplies organized
Trays can be used even outdoors to contain refreshments on a hot summer day
