We use smaller tables to make eat-in kitchen spaces appear larger. If the dining area is spacious, we set the table for an intimate breakfast for two. We arrange knickknacks in odd groupings such as 3, 5 or 7. Depending on paint color, we use color sparingly in a dramatic kitchen and complement existing color schemes. Plants are strategically arranged to liven up the space; kitchen wall art as well. Rugs and artwork are creatively positioned to add depth and dimension. Cook books, wooden utensils, tea pots, and various bottled herbs are used as needed to liven the space. We may place large bowls of polished fruit on the counter, next to gourmet olive oil or a full bottle of red wine.The buyer who purchased this home never noticed the missing "triangle" in the kitchen. The home sells much faster.
