TV Tray Table - The Perfect Product For Casual Dining

Updated on April 25, 2012

TV Tray Tables

We don't have room for a dining table in our apartment, and as much as I would like to have one, the reality is that we probably wouldn't use it that often if we did. Besides, here's just the two of us and so it's convenient to sit on the sofa and eat. A TV tray table is an ideal investment for individuals or families that eat meals in this manner. Not to mention the fact that it could prolong the cleanliness and appearance of your soft furnishings! With the best care and attention in the world, sometimes spills are inevitable when eating a meal from a plate or dish balanced on your lap.

Using a TV tray table greatly reduces the risk of spills. Have you ever had your meal on your lap and reached for the TV remote or a drink that isn't close to hand? It's so easy to have the plate or dish tip and spill food over the sofa, chair, carpet or yourself! With a TV tray table, you can have your meal and other items in front of you so you don't have to reach for anything.

TV Tray Tables For Casual Dining

When choosing a TV tray table the first thing you want to go for is functionality. Pretty much all TV tray tables do the same, they provide a solid, level area for you to rest plates, dishes, cups or glasses on. But what else? Some TV tray tables fold down to provide easier storage, so if you're short of space or don't want it on display all the time, going for a folding TV tray table might be a better option.

Appearance wise, you can choose from a variety of different styles, finishes and decorations. A TV tray table may not be the most aesthetically pleasing of home furnishings, but it's a useful little item to have around the home for casual dining.

TV tray tables are great for elderly people too, something like the Table mate II would be perfect for ease of use and functionality. The height can be altered and the legs slide nicely under the sofa or armchair out of the way. For someone with limited mobility, a TV tray table is a great idea, not only for eating, but for crafting, reading or writing, or any activity which requires a level surface. 

You don't have to be elderly or immobile to be using a TV tray table and you can use it for way more than just eating. TV tray tables are ideal for people who want to use a laptop while sitting comfortably away from a regular desk, it provides a steady surface for the laptop and stops the heat of the laptop going into your legs. It's also a great way to lazily paint your nails! As you can see, there are many reasons to invest in a TV tray table, it's a great item to have around any home.
