This a great article. I think the most important factor to consider how the owner will use the kitchen. Sadly kitchens are not used to cook meals anymore. They are more dining rooms for takeout or home offices. There is a huge difference in a kitchen that is use everyday to prepare multiple meals and a casual place to drop the mail. I feel like a dying breed. I cook everyday.

Regarding Comment#4 about dishwashers... no matter what size dishwasher you have, it is a terrible idea to wait until you have a full load. Dishwashers require very little water (about 2 gallons). Food can harden between loads and require re-washing. If you have a small family but want a full 24" size dishwasher, buy one that has the option for just an upper drawer wash. It probably doesn't save much water but it might make you feel less quilty about running the dishwasher every day.
