Good Questions

Q: We just moved into the most adorable apartment in Oakland, but the kitchen is less than cute. Mostly because of it's super awkward layout, and super ugly water heater. We are toying with the idea of extending the gas line and switching the fridge and the stove but....the water heater? I'm nervous to put up a paper or fabric screen or curtain because of how close to the burners it will be....

We cannot paint and even moving the stove is probably against our lease. But look at how awkward it is!
