My favorite way to choose an item for my home is to think about what would make a room more functional….and then try to find a fashionable (as possible) version of that item.
We have a big family and we have three sit down meals a day. That equals lots of setting and unsetting the table! A kitchen cart is the solution. I load it up and the kids can push it over and set the table.
Restaurant quality is what I am looking for, and this website provides a lot of good choices for under $250.
