Put It On A Kitchen Tray

The thought that my kitchen renovation plan is underway has had me wandering around kitchenware shops these last few days getting inspiration for the kitchen decor for the new kitchen.
The extra bench space I'll have to display things on is what is getting me most excited, I won't know what to put where! I don't want it to look cluttered and think that putting items on a kitchen tray or plate keeps them neat and tidy and in their right zones.
My coffee machine can finally move from the fish tank wine cabinet and onto the kitchen bench by the sink. I want to put a tray next to it to display my espresso cups and collection of tea pots and the tea/coffee/sugar canisters. Turning this into a coffee station will be so much more practical and I won't be running from one side of the kitchen to get cups and the other to get the sugar like I am now.
I've also got my eye on a modern silver oil can (like this Curtis Stone one except a cheaper version if I can find it!) to sit next to the stove top with my new Peugeot Tahiti Salt and Pepper Mills I won thanks to Real Living Magazine 7th Birthday Competition. A pretty plate will probably work here if it's large enough. It will be so much easier to access these every day items right next to the cooker instead of going into the pantry.
Is it just me or does everything look so much prettier on a tray?

  1. I am with you. The tray is the way to go. Easy to move to wipe the bench, and looks 'contained'.

  2. Half the fun of a new Reno is styling it.

  3. What a great idea to use a tray to pull all the stuff together! I am so going savaging around my house to find a tray or basket for all my odds and ends on my kitchen counter! It really does make it look better.

  4. Oh I am quite a fan of the trays!

  5. Oh my gosh I absolutely love these photos! The kitchen is the heart of the house, no matter what anyone says. I've been dreaming of my dream kitchen for the longest time. So excited for your final look, enjoy the decorating. xx

  6. I never thought to use a tray until I saw my friend's kitchen tray. I love mine now! It makes the kitchen look less cluttered and everything I use on a regular basis is in one spot. It just looks prettier... cleaner...happier =)

  7. Everything definitely looks prettier on a tray. For sure!

  8. Trays do rock, I kep meaning to do when I see these gorgeous photos, but I can't sem to find trays I love! I've bought a couple of cute flat bowls from Japanese shops to hold hair elastics and clips, my first foray in to "trays"!
