I enjoyed the article and it certainly is thought provoking. Flooring selections seem to be another major decision point in kitchens. Wood, tile, LVT, concrete, etc.

There are also a lot of cool products out there for kitchens such as pop-up outlets, stow-away appliance shelves. Relatively low cost items (in the grand scheme of a kitchen remodel), and can be handy features to have in your kitchen.

DC - design for the extreme and unforeseen - that is when things really need to work - like in a fire. Luckily fires in buildings are pretty rare. Fires in kitchens are a little more common - a good exhaust fan and a fire extinguisher nearby are musts.
