Ways a Tray Can Simplify Your Life

Glass-watering-stakesA tray is just a slab of wood with a couple of handles attached to it, but it has so many uses. As a tool for the kitchen or a decorative piece in the living room, a tray adds value to your home. Here are ways a tray can simplify your life in any room of the house.

In-house Green House

On their own, plants add a little life to a room, but together, you create a decorative piece to put on display with a tray. While you create a small exhibit for your plants with a tray as the canvas, it also acts as a receptacle for excess water to give you the benefit of having a plant in the house without the mess.


Winter snow or summer rain, a tray for wet boots and shoes in the entryway is a cute way to keep the outdoor elements off your floor. It’s an elegant method of corralling water, dirt and mud around entryways so outside mess doesn’t get tracked into the rest of your home. It saves time on cleaning and floors from damage.


A big party or big pans, a delicately decorated tray makes clean up a little less wet. Use a cute tray to trap water under a dish drying rack. Water pools in the tray rather than on the counter while you tidy up. Delightful designs make clean up less dreary and your counter tops dry.

Living Room

No need for a curio cabinet with a tray for display. Tucked away on a bookshelf or on display on a side table, show off objects you love to collect on a tray. Whether they’re pottery bowls, candlesticks or little jars of sea shells, trays perfectly showcase knickknacks neatly.


Reclaim your counter space and put products in their place with a tray as a vanity organizer in your  bathroom or bedroom. Whether you have countless colors of nail polish or a ton of tubes of hair gel, keep it classy by sorting them with a serving tray. A tray creates a visual flow your products can’t quite pull off on their own.

A tray is a versatile houseware; they’re not just for serving tea and cookies. For living room tablescapes or bathroom organization, wicker or leather, there are many ways to be creative with a tray.
