Why Your Home Deserves to Have a Tray Table
You may have picked up a coffee table and side tables for your living room but have you ever considered a tray table? Tray tables are a slightly different version of side tables with raised sides like in a serving tray. These make them especially useful to hold items like brassware or crystal without fear of them sliding off the edges. Tray tables are novelty pieces of furniture that can add to the elegance of your living room or adorn plain corners or nooks in other areas of your home. Here’s what you need to know when you set out to buy a tray table.
Kinds of Tray Tables
There are two kinds of tray tables - the standalone tray tables that you can place with display items like curios and the portable, folding type that is multipurpose. The standalone models are small tables specifically crafted to be a holder for items of interest. They are beautiful in themselves and add to the appeal of the items on display. You can put these in any area of your home to create a visual charm. The folding types of tray tables are mostly used for serving food in areas other than the dining table, for instance when you are lounging in front of the TV or when you want to have a snack in bed. They come with a tray surface that has handles for easy transportation, a wide surface to place your plate and drink on and foldable legs. They can easily be stacked away when not in use.
