Trays & Boxes

When it comes to gatherings and parties, impressions mean a lot. So a little effort in this section can go a long way in presenting you as an organized person. And that's where the trays and boxes come into action. The trays & boxes are good for both storing and serving large quantities of foods and drinks. Like you can use a box to keep your wine bottles or simply place it on serving as a decoration. Similarly, trays provide a stable platform to hold cups, glasses, dishes along with some napkins.  Selected and used with care, the tray and boxes combo can come in handy for presenting yourself more impressively.

How to Select Trays And Boxes

The trays and boxes are slightly different from each other in terms of usage and design. However, they are both part of the serving and storing set. So, the basics of selecting a perfect tray or box will remain almost the same. 

You have to start with the design expectation like tray or box type and then move on to its material.

Design Expectation

There are multiple types of box trays explicitly designed for a particular functionality. The most common design you will find includes antislip type, butler type, compartment type, and fast food type.

The antislip type, as the name suggests, has anti-skid properties. They usually have a layer of high traction and also offer water resistance. The type is best for storing and moving glasswares that get slippery when wet.  

The butler design gets its name from the functionality it serves. The tray has a square or rectangular build with boundaries all around it. It's mostly used for serving tea, coffee, and snacks. The design also goes perfectly with teapots and breakfast items.

Compartment trays or boxes are a variant of a normal tray or box that comes with sectioning. The thing is best if you plan to serve multiple types of food or drinks in a single go. For instance, you can use one section of the compartment design box to store wine bottles while the other can hold cola cans. 

And finally, there's the fast-food design, developed specifically for high quantities. The design is best for large-scale parties or for commercial places. The trays that you use at a burger store nowadays are an example of this type. 

Size 

Trays-boxes are not limited by size. Some variants are used to serve food and drinks, and there is a variant ideal for single-person use only. And while the trays are available in standard sizes, boxes are a little more flexible. 

Thus, before you get your trays and boxes, consider the purpose they will serve. For instance, a medium-sized tray or box is best if you are a family of 4-5 people. Too small and the tray won't have enough space, too large and the tray will get bulkier. Moreover, it will have a lot of empty space, which doesn't look good.

The only place where you can ignore the storage need is for a decorative box. In this case, you need to prioritize the location of the box. Like if you plan to place it on a table, match the box size according to the table's dimensions. 

Tip

Most of the tray and boxes designs have one thing in common-handles. You need them to securely hold the object when it's loaded. Thus, while selecting tray design, check out the handles available in the tray. Always go for handles that are ergonomic and antislip, especially for large trays.

Color

The trays and boxes you select will become a part of your dining area or kitchen. So, it has to follow the appeals of that particular place. In addition, the trays or boxes need to have a color and pattern that match or create a contrast with the interior and other decors. 

You can also consider lighting and the overall vibe of the place for this part. If the place is well lit, a dark-colored box and tray will work, while you need to select lighter colors for low-light environments. 

In the same way, an old and low shine product will suit rustic interiors, while a sleek and shiny tray or box is best for modern interiors. 

Material 

The most important aspect of trays and boxes is their material. It influences its strength, life, and even appearance. Thus, trays and boxes are available in several materials, including plastic, fiberglass, wood, and metals. 

Plastic: The plastic trays and boxes are most common due to their price and long life. They also offer brilliant colors, texture, and resistance against stains. Plus, they are available in granite, pearl, and some other finishes. 

Fiberglass: This material is a step up from plastic. It offers better strength and life with just a slight increase in cost. It's a great choice for contemporary setups and the interior. 

Wooden: Wood is the classic material that offers a distinct patterned look. It also brings forth charming color, making it fit for serving tea, coffees, and other such beverages. Of course, they are also best for breakfast. 

Metal: Metals like stainless steel are amazing for all-occasion use. They are durable, elegant, and offer a clear finish. They are also easy to clean and maintain, making them best for both day-to-day use and events.
