Not seeing any receptacles shown over the new counter-tops. That's the only thing that jumps out at me.

You're designing the lighting layout? No recess?

Think of the lighting as recess cans. 4" or 6".

I never like having a ceiling fan in the kitchen.

UCL lights are nice.

I would just leave the wire for the peninsula lights in the ceiling for until they are bought and ready to install. HO might pick out small ones and 3 might look good.

Make sure to have your entrance ways covered with 3/4way on atleast one zone of lighting.

I took you jpg and just quickly added/moved.
