What Houzz contributors are saying:
PreparationIdeally, prep and cleaning space is best located around the sink. Within these areas will be everyday glasses and dishes, along with trash receptacles and the dishwasher. Allow 18 to 36 inches (45 to 92 centimetres) of countertop space on one or both sides of your sink.Preparation areas are best kept clear of other items, since you will always be taking out bowls, plates and utensils there. Allow at least 36 inches (92 centimetres) of uncluttered countertop space for preparation in a small kitchen. Larger kitchens will have much more. This is one reason that islands are so popular. They provide broad and well-lit surfaces on which to perform the majority of kitchen tasks.

Like the wood and semi opague glass front cabinets
Contrast of cabinets with white backsplash
Like the island. Not the dark wood.
I do like this granite/soapstone look. I would worry that the room would be too dark without the light backsplash
Wood cabinets with white backsplash
