In places like the kitchen and the bathroom that get a lot of use it's just inevitable that stuff needs to be out on the counter. Whether it's olive oil, vinegar and salt and pepper shakers or your favorite perfume bottles and a framed picture, in the kitchen and bathroom the stuff we use most ends up being out. That's all fine and good until it turns to clutter (or just starts attracting a ton of other items that don't really belong there). One way to minimize cluttered counters is to wrangle it into clusters using trays or platters.
Here are our favorite trays: from modern and melamine to classic marble or silver to natural bamboo. In all shapes and sizes, you can wrangle most anything. For some more ideas check out our roundup of breakfast trays
