Although it may be simple in design, the humble tray table has a wide range of uses in different spaces around the house. The universally useful flat workspace along with its traditionally smaller size and light weight give these pieces a combination of functionality and versatility not possible in heftier furniture.
Folding TV tray tables are a flexible option that generally has the tray attached to a folding set of legs, rather than a detachable tray sitting on a folding base, as with a butler tray table. Either of these options can be great assets around the home. Aside from their traditional use as individual dining spaces, tray tables can also offer lots of functionality as portable tablespace for work or craft projects. Alternately, a simple butler’s tray can also help organize an ottoman or coffee table, wrangling remotes and making a tidier appearance with intentional open storage.
Other popular styles include folding or rolling designs, as well as uniquely designed options that can function as end tables or accent pieces. The folding tray table is a classic design which has a shorter set of folding legs that make it the perfect height for breakfast in bed. Rolling tray tables have wheels or casters and may vary more in construction, even offering multiple tiers for additional storage. This option usually works well as a serving piece for food and drinks, or even as a rolling minibar. Additional styles of tray tables also include features that make them ideal for outdoor use where they can complement an outdoor patio set and make it simple to serve food and drinks during an outdoor get together. These portable tables really are a versatile wonder that can add to nearly any area in which you find yourself needing temporary dining, storage, serving or workspace.
