Top 8 Best TV Trays and Tables

Introduction

TV trays are one of the best inventions of all time.  And, in the age of technology, they are even more functional.  Generally, they used to be used for eating while watching TV.  Now, they double  up as a laptop or tablet table.  And for the simple fact that we wanted a table to do our work when and where we please, we went searching for the best TV trays and tables.

So, we began our search with functionality in mind.  We wanted a table that can hold both our meal and our laptop — space was a big factor in our decision.  And, although not all of our picks have the optimal amount of space, most of them do.  And the ones that don’t, they have their own purpose in the TV tray world.

Next, we looked at quality.  We needed something that was going to handle the weight of a computer and the hours we spend at the screen.  And, for those moments we recklessly have a beverage sitting next to our computer, the best TV trays need not be wobbly.

Finally, call us vain, but the TV trays have to look good.  We love our space and the inspiration our space gives us.  So, the materials used and the design was an important factor in picking out the best TV trays and tables.

Adjustable TV Tray Table – TV Dinner Tray on Bed & Sofa, Comfortable Folding Table

Adjustable TV Tray Table - TV Dinner Tray on Bed & Sofa, Comfortable Folding Table with 6 Height & 3 Tilt Angle Adjustments by HUANUO

We are a sucker for light and bright so that’s what initially caught our attention with this pick for best TV trays.  The Lifewit Wooden Portable TV Tray Snack Table is an indoor/outdoor table that features a white finish coating to protect it from moisture and corrosion.

This TV tray can be folded for easy storage and is constructed of solid wood.  The dimensions of the table are approximately 17.7 inches in width, 24 inches in height and 11.8 inches in depth.  And, perhaps the best part, there is no assembly required.

Our take:  We love the look and the functionality of this table.  We can see it set up as a night table, out on the patio, used for a those unsuspecting bouquet of flowers and of course for some dinner with a side of internet.

This table is durable and wobbly-free, so you’re going to get quality with this TV tray.  However, our only complaint is that it is on the small side and we like to spread out a bit.  And, since this table looks so good, propping up two of these tables side by side is not out of the question.

Linon Home Decor Tray Table Set

Linon Home Decor Tray Table Set, Faux Marble, Brown

The Linon Home Decor Tray Table got a spot on our list initially because of the classic design.  And it maintained that spot due to its durability and functionality.

Made of metal, these TV trays fold up flat for easy storage.  In addition, these tables come with polished metal legs, a laminate surface and padded feet to protect the floors.

Each table measures in at 18.9 inches in width, 26 inches in height and 15 inches in depth.  There is thankfully no assembly required and they come in your choice of 5 different colors and designs:  Chevron Black & White, Diamond Eye Moonlight Blue, Park Place Black & White, Park Place Capri Breeze and Summer Peek Grey.

Our take: They are multi-functional and durable.  The laminate surface will ensure the longevity of the tray while the metal construction will ensure stability.  And, although these tables are lightweight, they are constructed uniformly so there will be no wobbling.

Finally, the designs are done tastefully and will add a pop of funkiness to any space.
