Why We Still Love Trays

A couple years ago we argued that you need a tray in every room. We focused on the various rooms that can use a tray for organizing. We still love to use trays to corral! Lately we’ve found that we love to hang them on the wall, or prop them in a built-in. You’re always going to need a tray!

Shea told MyDomaine, “I love a good tray. They're easily one of the most versatile and functional decor items, perfect for creating a simple moment in any space. I use them to give odds and ends a home, or create a touch of dimension, all while keeping a collected and polished feel anywhere from the bathroom to the kitchen.”

Here’s our favorite ways to tray!!

TO HANG

One of our favorite trends at the moment is seeing trays hung on the wall! The visual interest and statement that’s made is hard to beat, but the natural texture of the trays feels organic at the same time.

TO CORRAL

We’re still adamant about a tray’s ability to corral! Throw one in your kitchen to host crocks and utensils or produce, in your bathroom for canisters, and on coffee tables for greenery or even that pesky remote!

TO PROP

This is another trend we adapted as of late, and we’re still loving it! The casual look of a tray propped up against a counter is cool, unique, and you can easily use it to carry or store anything on hand when needed.
