I want to sing the virtues of a bed tray but I have a horrible voice. So let’s talk about bed trays today! Do you have one? Do you want one? I love having a bed tray on the beds in my rooms. They are different, useful and can be decorated to work with a bedroom. I love to have a table of sorts when reading or writing or even having a cup of coffee in bed. Today, let’s talk about bed trays!
If you don’t have a bed tray here are some reason to get one!!!!
Bed trays are just downright fun! It feels so special to hop into bed with a bed tray! They give us a flat surface to put a drink or a snack on. And if you like to work the crossword puzzle or read or even do computer work they come in handy. You can even put them to the other side of the bed for a handy extra surface for anything you need.
My guest always comment about how fun it is to have a stocked bed tray in their room!
You can’t get better than a bed tray to add another layer of decor to a bedroom. I love that a bed tray can be decorated when the beds not in use and amps up the fabulousness of a room!
What a great surprise to see a bed tray on a bed. It’s just so unique! ‘Nuf said!
For me, the best reason to have a bed tray is to create a vignette. It’s all about the vignette, people! Think flowers, books, personal items. And if you are using a bed tray in a guest room make it personal to your guest. Maybe a little picture of someone they love!
I get lots of email about bed trays. Most ask what to do with the bed tray when I go to bed. The easy answer is to put them on the floor. And when I make my bed in the morning I add the bed tray back onto the bed.
Bed Trays come in so many styles! So you can choose one that suits your needs and decorating style! Some have legs, some don’t. Some have removable tops, sides that hold books and even cups for drinks.
So many to choose from so few beds!!!!
