The latest trend in decorating your home has something to do with your platters. Yes, the trays you think are only for serving food have just become something more: they’re now decorative elements! It’s no wonder though as this era of rising vintage culture, hipsterism and specific lifestyles takes over, people are constantly looking for new ways to show their immense creativity. So if you have a few old trays that you don’t use, dust them off. Or, if you don’t, do the online scouting for platters for sale and get some in all the shapes and colours you find fancy. Then, pick one of the following ideas to give your home decor a dose of refreshment.
Candles podium on the table
If you love candles (and I doubt you don’t), then you will love this idea. Take an old platter that doesn’t have much depth, preferably a round one. It can be either plastic or a metal one, depending on the rest of your interior design pattern. If you have more modern details and colours that implicate a scent of modernism and fresh elegance, then a metal one would be perfect. If your room leans more towards the vintage niche, with more wooden pieces and a playful colour pattern, then a plastic platter would suit better. Through the vast offer of platters for sale you’ll find these in many colours, so choose one that goes with your sofas and the candles you’ll place in it. After that, choose your candles in different sizes; higher, medium ones and those in glasses and even the smallest that serve for one use only. You can even throw in small flowers among the candles and a pearl chain to create a really heavenly sight. Then place this lovely decoration on the living room table and light the candles. Enjoy the ambiance.
Your precious bathroom essential/bedroom essentials
The shower gels, lotions and creams and the bath salts you spend quite the sum on, are more than just bathing products. They’re your bathroom collection and as such you want these cute bottles to be placed in one place and fit in the bathroom’s design. Plus, that way you won’t be tempted to leave them on a wet surface. A nice metal platter would be perfect for this purpose. Also, a wooden, deeper one with handles would work as a bucket for storing bathroom essentials. Same goes for the bedroom, especially if your makeup comes in small packages and you don’t have much space for all the body lotions, creams, hair products and similar stuff.
The ottoman turns into a fancy coffee table
If your lovely coffee corner doesn’t have enough space to place a small coffee table, no worries – you don’t need it. The coffee corner mainly comes down to having one extra cosy and comfy sofa chair with an ottoman for the legs. And when you have your coffee you don’t really put your legs in the air, so you might as well use the ottoman for something else. A large serving tray will work as a stable and flat surface for placing your coffee mugs and a bottle of water along with some snacks and of course, the inevitable small flower vase for setting the mood. How’s this for enjoying your daily coffee moment? Have a good day!
