The 1 Item You Need in Your Home

Out of all the things you can style your home with, there is one item we always use on repeat: TRAYS. Trays can be used in all rooms, in all shapes and in all sizes. Read on as we are share more about why we love trays and a few of our favorites!

Organization

Use trays as a tool to help organize and de-clutter. To eliminate clutter in the kitchen, gather the small odds and ends on the countertops and place them in a tray. To de-clutter bathrooms, use trays to store items on vanities and under the sink. Use a decorative tray to tackle loose papers around the house, like mail, bills and schoolwork.

Layers

Layering is key to creating a well-styled space and trays are a great tool to help achieve this. Start decorating with a tray. Next, add in a few items of various heights and widths to create layers. Trays filled with accessories can be placed in front of frames and mirrors to also help achieve this layered look.

Texture

Along with layering, texture is extremely important in styling. Trays are available in so many different materials which helps create a beautiful contrast between textures in a room. If you have a shiny tabletop, layer it with a natural textured tray and vice versa.

Size

Styling a room can seem overwhelming when trying to fill a large area, but using trays is a great way to fill up more tabletop space. Large trays help group smaller decor which is an important trick when styling.
