We’re all struggling to keep our spaces clean, and at the same time, living in smaller spaces with rooms that pull double duty. The tables in your house are functional in ways that go beyond being the place you put the tableware: Most serve as staging spaces for projects, too. The problem is, they’re also largely immovable, but being able to shift them out of the way could reactivate your space at a moment’s notice. If you move your coffee table to the side, now you have a larger party space with a console to put snacks on; same with your kitchen table or even a kitchen island. The solution? Casters.

Also, keep in mind, as you are placing the casters, you want to ensure they’re far enough away from the outside edge of the furniture that you won’t stub a toe on them. In fact, you may be able to place them far enough away from the edge that they become invisible.
