Ordinary coffee tables are fast becoming things of the past, as they only function as simple tables and nothing else. If you are in the market scouting around for a such a table, you should reconsider and look at other alternatives, for instance the ottoman tray option. If you put both of these options side by side, you would realize that the this new option works a lot better than the coffee table in terms of functionality alone. Perhaps you cannot think of anything else that you could do with the new option. If that is the case, this article should highlight for you the advantages of the ottoman option, and why you should opt for this solution rather than buying a simple coffee table.

First and foremost let me introduce to you what the tray actually is. This item is pretty much a serving tray that is built within the ottoman, something that is usually accomplished by having removable top cushions. When you flip them over, you would be able to see a flat tray that could be utilized to not only hold food, but also to carry items from the kitchen and back. There would also be a handy storage space as well where you could keep your books, magazine, remote controls and even TV guides in. Useful, is it not?

When you have a normal table that is made of either wood, glass or marble, one would not want to rest his or her legs on it. But if you have an ottoman tray, it could actually act as a footrest as it is comfortable and soft! This alone should be reason enough to opt for an ottoman tray instead of a conventional coffee table. These trays also better all other types of coffee tables in terms of storage space, as they have plenty of storage space within it, and usual coffee-serving tables cannot compare with the amount of storage space that ottoman trays can offer. You could easily store multiple blankets and countless magazines and books within the trays, unlike the coffee table that provide you with limited space.

With an ottoman-concept coffee table, forget about ever running out of sitting space again when you hold parties at your home, as it would serve as a seat automatically. People can actually make use of this item to sit on, as the trays can easily serve as another chain in your home when there is a need for it. I don’t think anyone would want to sit on a wooden or glass table, one is because it is uncomfortable, and secondly it might be unsafe (especially if you have a glass table).

With so many advantages within it, the ottoman tray should be the natural choice if you are looking for a coffee table that would not only serve as an usual table, but can also function in many other ways. Remember to scout around for the best ottoman tray at the most competitive price before you purchase one, thus visit a few furniture stores and get the best piece for your home!
