Is there a rule to choosing single door cabinets over double door cabinets?

Depends on the cabinet width. Single door wouldn't make sense for a 36 inch unit.

The size can vary between modern slab doors or traditional raised panel. It also depends on location and ergonomics. In some cases a 24"single door will be fine or can be too big. Do you have an elevation you can post? Attached is a lacquered modern look where wide doors work great. They would be too big if they were raised panel mahogany. Try to give us more info.

I'm using a local lumber store and think I need a little help tweeking. Was thinking I would use single door cabinets to avoid having that dreaded crack in the middle of the cabinet doors as I am using white cabinets but I don't know which would look better.
I also need help figuring out the island. I would like a 30" deep island but that leaves 6 inches overhang and I feel that is useless and would look strange because stools would not fit. I would love to make it 36" and have stools but I don't believe that leaves me with enough passage on the wall side. Any suggestions from anyone would be so helpful.

If you are not receiving the design help you need at the cabinet shop (and you SHOULD BE!) then perhaps engaging the services of a local independent kitchen designer could help you navigate the project. Check the Find A Pro section above to find someone in your area.

There is a 75" sliding door at the end of the kitchen. Table is going in the area between the slider and 3 light casement windows

most off the upper doors are 24" wide which can be done, but it depends on the doors you are using. Fridge cabinet can be one door that opens to ceiling and so can microwave. It also depends on what this local lumber place can get you. This is obviously not a custom cabinet job. I would avoid the 45 dgree corner cabinet and get a 24x24 L-shaped upper instead. It will give you more storage and not take up so much overhead space over the counter. Look at the small shaker kitchen on my houzz site and you will see how this upper corner is made. Things get lost in those deep 45 degree cabinets IMHO.
