Something feel stale in your kitchen?

  4. Layer ceiling lights, hanging lights, and windows to illuminate dark corners.
  5. Kitchen islands with surrounding seating provide a point for gathering and talking.
  6. Store appliances and keep counter tops free of clutter.
  7. Conceal garbage from sight using pull out trash drawers.
  8. Hanging mirrors will open up the space and reflect bad energy away.
