Where to buy a bed tray table

Both tray tables and beds are not new. Nor is the concept of combining the two. The first serving tray was purely practical and was made entirely of natural materials. It dated back to six or seven century BC. The first use of beds for entertaining as well as eating meals dates back to ancient Egypt. It is not surprising that bed tray tables remain popular today.

Lap tray

The lap tray is the simplest of the bed trays because it merely rests on your lap. These trays can be made of rattan, or metal or some other material. Some lap trays are made of hard plastic and have a beanbag for a bottom, which allows it to sit level, irrespective of the shape of your legs.These lap trays must have enough stiffness to be able to bear the weight of the food it carries as well as not deform as it rests atop one's legs. To buy lap trays, go to bed and furnishing stores, tea stores, or online retailers.

Folding bed trays

The folding bed tray is a step up from the lap tray. These bed trays have legs that support the weight of the tray, as well as, they can either span your legs or the bed itself. Folding bed trays can be used just for meals as well as for other things as well such as computers and books. Folding bed trays may also have built-in cubby trays or pockets. These bed trays are also available at furnishing stores or through online retailers.

Overbed tables

Overbed tables are used most often in hospitals, though they can be used for home use as well. These bed trays not only span your legs, but also of the entire bed. Thanks to their stands, they are adjustable for height as well as level or they can also be tilted. These over bed tables come in various sizes with small table tops to two piece table tops that can be both levelled and tilted at the same time. These bed trays are available at hospital or medical supply stores as well as at online retailers such as Amazon. The trays vary according to price and composition.
