Don't have a kitchen island unless it's a point in the kitchen triangle.

Why? Depending on layout it is more useful than open floor.

Don't have that shelf between the ceiling and the top of the kitchen cabinets.

Agreed. It's a greasy nightmare.

Don't have an open kitchen

Don't agree. Our experience has been that when we entertain our guests follow us around. They don't stay in the living room or dining room, they go where we are. By opening up the kitchen a bit they will be able to stay in adjacent rooms and still be with us.

Greenhouse windows.

Not in Phoenix, unless you like the blast-furnace effect near the window.
