Obliquely arranging belongings opposite from another can be a panache talent in an appealing gifted touch of aslant.

Meticulous expressions of displaying effects kitty-corner or catty-corner can be cherished with verve to observe with many curves.

Enjoying a whimsical slanted area could make a quaint scene seem larger and farther.

A crosswise space redirects the flow in a welcoming array to emotionally say there is a sense of comfort and ease to stay.

Cater-corner was derived centuries ago from quatre, the French word for four often spelled catre.

Catre evolved as the English word cater to refer to cut cornerwise across a four-cornered shape to create a cater-corner landscape.

Dots placed on a dice at number four opposite from one another was how the term was firm to describe cater-corner forevermore.

There is a knack to adorn an abode kitty-corner, catty-corner or cater-corner.

Dialectal differences will point to the same meaning to be diagonally internationally.
