What to Consider When Buying a Bed Tray
Aside from being decorative, adding a bed tray to your home — whether in your bedroom, on your couch, or on your coffee table — is a great fit for those who are looking for an extra, sturdy surface.

"Bed trays are such a fun addition to a bedroom," Alexandra Davin, co-founder at Clairrow and interior decorator at Davin Interiors, tells Hunker. "They are super practical, giving you a flat surface to eat or drink, work, or do the morning crossword puzzle, and they amp up the luxury in any space — a bed tray instantly gives a five-star hotel, breakfast-in-bed vibe."
When buying a bed tray, you're going to want to think about the functionality of the tray based on your lifestyle and needs, according to Catherine Davin, co-founder at Clairrow and owner and principal designer at Davin Interiors.
"You want to ensure you're selecting a tray with enough surface area to fit your needs," Catherine says. "If you're using it only for coffee or a light breakfast, you may opt for a smaller tray. But, if its primary purpose is to work-from-bed, you might look for a larger option to make sure your laptop will fit comfortably. Handles are another great consideration if you plan to move the tray frequently."
