The best one in this case would be one that is compact and easy to use, like the highly rated (and cheap!) OXO Good Grips Easy-Clean Compost Bin. A list including this and other good compost bins can be found at this site.

And rather than consider a compost bin, you might want to consider a compost tumbler instead . Though more expensive, they do speed up the composting process considerably and have the advantage of doing away with the need to use a shovel to aerate your compost.

The Compost Caddy is affordable, super easy to use, and has a sleek and modern design. It can connect to your trashcan and counter, making it easy to separate your compostables from your trash. Kids will be able to do so as well, making it a great learning and family experience. It also has a self-seal lid, so you and your family will be safe from rotten smells and bugs.

This article has information and links to eleven different options. They all seem to be compact, easy to use and have designs that will suit a variety of home décor. Personally, I like the idea of the "L’Échoppe à Bois Indoor Kitchen Compost Bin." It's handmade using locally sourced wood, and you'd be supporting a family-owned business. 

The "Uncommon Goods' Living Composter" looks nice as well. I like how it has three components, making it easy for everyone in the family to use. 

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
