Use your imagination! A tray is not just a tray and can fulfill many more functions than the mere presentation of food, especially if it is a designer tray like the ones in our Sacha and Delica collections.
Today, in our decoration and design blog, we want to suggest several ideas to repurpose your trays in a creative way and use their versatility and decorative attributes.
The flat surfaces on top of furniture in your entrance have a knack for attracting cards, keys, coins and miscellaneous objects in a most chaotic way. To avoid clutter and to have all those objects neatly at hand, place a small tray on the entry cabinet and drop these annoying objects there on your way in or out of the house.
Displaying decorations, such as dry flowers, shells or candles
Displaying all your ornaments in a tray on top of a table or another surface is quite convenient, as you can easily remove and relocate them if you need to clear some space immediately.
Keep all your bar paraphernalia on one tray. It looks much neater and you can move the party easily to any room you choose.
A tray is perfect for organizing and displaying your jewelry “store style” and keeping your whole collection at hand. Organizing your jewelry on a flat surface will also help to avoid getting your necklaces tangled and smaller pieces can be found easily.
The books and magazines arranged on a coffee table will be easier to consult and clear away if you stack them neatly on a stylish designer tray. The decorative function of the books won’t be an obstacle – simply move the tray if you need to use your coffee table to enjoy coffee or a cocktail when you have company.
Improvised coffee table
Keep your coffee essentials on a serving tray with handles, and use it to improvise a coffee table wherever the fancy takes you. Any place is good for an impromptu chat around a luscious cup of coffee.
Of course not all trays can be repurposed for all these uses, nor do they fit in all types of décor. It is important that the tray’s design coordinates with the style of the room you place it in, and the articles you want to put on it.
We also invite you to let us know about your own ideas on social media, and to share this article if you find it useful.
