As promised in Monday's How To on making your space more flexible, here are our top ten caster choices.
• Wood Wheels Swiveling Caster

Remember, casters come in many flavors: with wheels of rubber, metal, wood or plastic; ball or wheel mechanisms; hardware that's hooded, that swivels, or is rigid; and with brakes or without.
The goal of using casters at home is to make your furniture moveable, so think about your specific needs before you make a purchase. Where will you attach them, and what load capacity do you need? (Most models indicate bearable load.)
