Kitchen remodel, 42" or 48" upper cabinets

We are about to start a kitchen remodel. Our plan is to replace all the upper cabinetry and reface bottoms so that we can keep the granite countertops that were installed by the previous owners. We do not have an open floor plan. I like the look and idea of 48" cabinets (two doors with glass uppers) to the ceiling but unsure if it works for my kitchen; too busy? makes it feel smaller? Or would the one door 42" cabinets be better.

Pic is of our current kitchen, currently only have 30" uppers right now and 2' gap to ceiling.

Hardwood floors go in next week to replace tile. Plan is to have dover white kitchen cabinets around perimeter and darker island.
