Hidden sponge storage in front of the sink. Sponges are unsightly; why clutter up sink-side space with them? This use of the often wasted space in front of the sink is genius.

Have openings in the counter top or the doors so can more easily drop recycling into the recycling bins.

Two dishwashers!

I first heard this idea from Olivia. I’ve since seen it on Houzz. With two dishwashers not only are you covered for a party, but day to day, you can take clean dishes straight from dishwasher to table, a luxury that you have when you don’t need to empty the dishwasher in order to refill it with dirty dishes.

Elsewhere I’ve read sense to put the diswasher by the sink, as this is where you’ll already be taking the dirty dishes.
