The kitchen seems to be an extremely popular place, likely the most used room in the house. That being the case, be sure to install walkways that are at least 3 feet wide. By the cooking zone, you should shoot to go for feet wide to allow for easy foot traffic.
If you have kids, make sure that your stove is not in a high traffic walking area to keep your kids far away from handles or causing any spills.
Be sure to have your refrigerator placed in an accessible location for people as they walk by.
Make sure to keep all of your appliances away from any corners so that nothing will bang into them and damage them.
Too often we see microwaves installed too high. They should be 15 inches above your countertop. If you have kids, you can install a below counter microwave as an option.
The island is typically the centerpiece of the kitchen and you need to decide what the function of it will be. Will you cook in it or will be a place for everybody to congregate. The answer to this question will determine if appliances will be installed in it or not.
You might want to consider having a second mini refrigerator where snacks can be kept out of the cooks way when they are preparing meals. It makes it really easy so kids have their own refrigerator to access snacks from.
