Q: My boyfriend and I just moved into a new apartment, and I am driving myself crazy trying to figure out what to do about the kitchen. The space is fine except for the fact that the fridge and stove are directly next to each other. I have no idea why, but even though there are two other good sized walls in the kitchen it seems like the only hook ups for both of these appliances are on the same wall.

There is also a huge empty space above them that attracts even more attention to that area and I'm not sure what to do about it. Any ideas on how to detract from my Siamese twin appliances and make this space look less awkward without making it look too cluttered?
