In the home, a serving tray serves more functions than merely serving. They are places to keep things and stay organised; and they also make great décor items that can be styled in such a way that they tie together the entire look of a room.
In the dining room, stainless-steel food-safe platters can be used to showcase pretty canapés, hors-d`œuvres or dainty desserts. In a sumptuous, old-world dining room, round brass platters can take pride of place even when you’re not dining. Use them to display a selection of fresh fruit, or a collection of candles on the table or sideboard. In the kitchen, use yours to keep all your spices and cooking oils in one, easy-to-reach tidy location.
Don’t forget that a cutlery tray holding all your knives, forks and spoons is handy for outdoor dining, too. Trolleys holding this, and everything else you may need to serve food and eat outside, can simply be wheeled out when needed.
In the living room or hallway, a wooden tray makes a beautiful storage solution for small trinkets and odds and ends. Trays can be easily dressed up with items such as scented candles, coasters, photo frames and flower vases.
In the bedroom, trays are super useful. They can also act as a focal point that mirrors the style of the room. Got a vintage dresser table you love? Make a vignette on a brass-and-mirror tray with a vintage-style lamp, beautiful perfume flacons, assorted cosmetic brushes, and pretty jewellery holders.
