Trays are handy household items that can be used for a variety of purposes, from serving drinks and snacks to organizing and storing small items. Consider the size of the space where you'll be using the tray. If you have a small tabletop or shelf, a large tray may not be practical. In this case, a small tray might be a better fit. Small trays and large trays can have very different visual impacts, so consider the look and feel you want to achieve in the room where you'll be using the tray. A small tray may be more subtle and understated, while a large tray can make a bold statement.
