According to HGTV , here are some design mistakes that you can make when it comes building or remodeling your kitchen:
Do not work with professionals and qualified installers. Be sure that concrete plans are drawn and that these people know how to read and follow them.
Do not allow clearance for “extendables”. Examples? Cabinet doors, pull-out drawers, etc. We don’t want you getting stuck between the kitchen island and the cabinet.
Do not recess the bottom of the cabinet for lighting. Just so they won’t show.
Do not check configuration of existing electrical outlets. It’d be harsh to plug in your coffee maker and find out it doesn’t work.
Do not check counter overhang. Can the doors and drawers open and close without obstruction?
Do not check commercial appliances. The heavy weight may require extra flooring support or a new counter.
