Hi everybody - this will be the first kitchen that I am building for myself. I am going with Ikea for the cabinets. I want white gloss - so Veddinge ( or Ringhult ( sure if I should pay more and get Ringhult). The floors are parquet, original from 1950s.

I am having trouble visualizing what kind of cabinets I want for the island. I am building my own. Currently I have: 18", 30", 18" base cabinets. Don't know whether to put large drawers or pull out shelves or? Countertop wise, I am leaning towards the Kasker quartz (

An 18" dishwasher will go to the right of the sink. The old fridge (it will stay) will go to the right of the dishwasher. You can see this layout in the picture.

I only plan on installing cabinets against the north wall.

Everything else is up to me. I plan to not have an oven as I have a Breville Smart Oven Air. I am leaning towards getting a 2 burner induction cooktop vs 4 burner. This will go near the NW corner.

Given all of this, do you guys have any advice for me, per the subject title? Thank you for any advice!
