Trying to fill in the space on your table tops? Make the decor you pick functional by adding trinket trays. These catch all dishes can be made of different materials like ceramic or metal and come in so many different designs. Personally, this is one way I like to decorate my space and it’s perfect for people who constantly lose things too. To make this process light and breezy for you, we created a list of trinket trays you can cop and where to display them.
Place this: on your work desk
These catch all plates from Nooke are 15cm in diameter so they are big enough to hole your essentials. You can keep your go-to office supplies like paper clips, a mini stapler, and bulldog clips. Alternatively, place your favorite beauty products like hand cream and lip balm for easy access. Available online.
Place this: by your front door
Do you always misplace your keys? An easy solution is to keep this leather tray on a table next to your front door. You can place your keys here every time you come home so you never lose them. You can also throw loose change and receipts in here too. Available at Estancia Mall.
Place this: on your vanity
A vanity always needs a chic tray to keep things organized. This is where you can keep your go-to jewelry pieces of the moment. Place them here while you’re getting unready. The glass and silver combination will also look great with your other accessories. Available at Central Square.
Place this: on your side table
To keep your side tables organized, keep a trinket tray or two on them. Here you can keep your headphones, USBs, and other essentials like medicines. This cute one from Typo has a cherry on it so you can place rings on the stem too. Available at Greenbelt 5.
Place this: on your coffee table
Decorate your plain coffee table with this turtle-shaped trinket dish. It may look cute empty but you can keep other decorative elements in it like tea light candles. Make it more functional by using it to store other things like your reading glasses. Available online.
