A hard floor (brick or tile) can exacerbate low back problems as well as being less forgiving when breakable objects are dropped. Rubber mats & thick rubber soles would help.

The laundry off the first kitchen may have been put on the exterior wall to make it easier to vent the dryer. It may also work better to have the prep kitchen closer to the dining room, although I haven't seen the whole plan. I would have swapped the sink with the range if possible & ideally have about 36" of counter space between sink & refrigerator for a prep area.
