Q: I rent a one bedroom with a small kitchen and would like to buy an inexpensive (few hundred dollars?) wheeled cart or kitchen island to expand my work surface and storage area. What is a good one you'd recommend? I would be doubly happy if it served as a dining table for two. I also have the problem that the dining area where I would put this island is carpeted. What is a good solution to keep it clean short of laying ugly plastic or tarp on the floor?Sent by Izzie
