Decorating With Trays Can Be Divine!!

Trays are great as anchors for your home’s decor. Trays help define an area and also deters clutter on flat surfaces. Trays can be utilized for multiple uses in many rooms. You can be as creative as your hearts desire. Below are a few examples of how you can decorate with trays in different rooms.

1) Living Room

Use a decorative tray on an ottoman in your living room. Many people are opting against coffee tables but still need a place to rest a cup or remote control. A tray can be a very stylist alternative to a traditional coffee table. You can also accent the tray with accessories or flowers to tie in the room’s decor.

2) Makeup Table / Bathroom Counter

This clear acrylic tray is simply divine. You can keep all of your makeup and beauty items in an equally beautiful tray. Its beautiful enough to be placed on your vanity table or bathroom counter.

3. Coffee / Tea Station

Keep all of your coffee and hot tea items together on a tray. Its large enough to hold your coffee maker, cup, sugar, and other items needed for that perfect cup of Joe or Earl Grey.

4. Guest Room

I love to welcome my overnight guests with a box of chocolate and bottle water in the guest room. Often, out of towners may get thirsty in the middle of the night, but don’t want to raid your kitchen or wake you up. In addition to a “welcome packet,” I make sure to leave a new bottle of water on a bedroom themed tray.

Β 5) Bedroom Dresser Tray

A bedroom’s dresser is often cluttered with keys, mail, money, receipts, and items from a person’s pocket and/or purse. We tend to use flat surfaces such as dressers and night stands as a quick spot to “temporarily” place items. Often, these flat surfaces are easy to become over cluttered. Try placing a tray on your dresser or nightstand to collect items. The tray will keep all items together and limit the amount of items placed on it.

    I have a couple of trays and use one for my perfume and also have a decorative one in my bedroom, but using one for a coffee station is a good idea! Love the different ways you’ve incorporated trays in your home. πŸ™‚
