Buying Guide

When you purchase wooden trays for ottomans, you might purchase them simply because they’re beautiful in their own right; you weren’t purchasing them to cover them up with things! However, now that you have a wooden ottoman tray, you might feel that it looks a little empty without anything specifically in it.

Some items that are well-placed on a wooden tray for ottoman include books, coasters for drinks, a small basket for pencils, and a place for your TV remote or phone. Since ottomans typically serve as makeshift tables between a couch and an entertainment device, it’s good to allow some empty space, too, for any food or snacks that you need to keep close at hand. To this end, a decorative snack bowl can even make your chips and dip or pretzels look thought-out and high-end when placed on your wooden ottoman tray.

Wooden trays for ottomans need to be adequately sized to serve the desired purpose and also look cohesive in your living area. For this reason, it is recommended that you choose a tray that is large enough to match the surface area of the ottoman or one that is slightly smaller than the ottoman.

Alternatively, choose a selection of smaller trays and have two or three trays placed on top of your ottoman. It all depends on your personal sense of style and how practical your trays need to be.

Also, choose a tray that is the same shape as your ottoman for cohesiveness and ensure it has handles so it can be moved easily.
