Eating and being productive in a comfortable space—your bed, a couch, an armchair—isn’t always easy. With a bedside table, however, you can make working from bed as practical as it is comfortable. And as more people work from home full or part-time, there are more beautifully designed, tech-packed bed shelves that are perfect for turning any room into a home office.

These trays are also good for breakfast in bed, a place for your kids to do their homework, or even a place to put your laptop or tablet in bed for a movie night. Before you buy, find out what factors you should consider before buying your own bed tray.

What to consider

Bed tray tables come in handy for people with a variety of needs. Consider the following to choose the best bed tray for your specific needs.

Charging options: Some, but certainly not all, bed trays have built-in charging capabilities. Those equipped with USB charging are usually more expensive.

Purpose: The perfect breakfast tray will look very different than the perfect work tray. Think about how you will be using the bed tray before you click buy, considering factors such as height, storage space, and whether the tray’s surface is suitable for holding a laptop, writing on paper, or other activities who you intend to use it for.

Extras: Many trays now have built-in adjustable heights, angles, and accessories like drawers and media slots.
