You didn't show the other side of your kitchen so I may be mistaken on this comment, But I do not see a cutting board, knife block, or Utensil rack, all worthy items for one's kitchen countertop.

I tried to balance functionality & aesthetics whiling having an eclectic taste in scenery.
Realize I live alone, and at most only use 2 of the 4 burners, as something will always be cooking at same time in convection toaster oven, Instant Pot, air fryer or slow cooker, so for functionality's sake, the back area of the stove has been turned to counter space. I find this setup to be very convenient for a solo cook. There are 2 knife blocks in this photo 2nd one is in between the GE Immersion Blender and the GE S.S. Coffee maker (3rd knife block is on the other side of the sink, while rest of Cutlery are in drawers). Above the stoves are only a few of my most used Pots & pans, 12 piece Mixing bowls, Bamboo steamers, and most commonly used Utensils hanging from Pot rack. My large pots and Large Woks are above the kitchen cabinets, and rest of pots and pans etc. are in the below cabinets and in the pots n pans storage area in oven cabinets.
I read in one of my Ex's college nutritional books that standing up while eating is good to prevent indigestion, acid reflux, and heartburn (although truth be told I eat standing up due to my back), so I have a Japanese plate setting set there for my Meals, but when preparing my meals, I remove the plate setting & put it on the folding counter behind me as under the plate setting is a hard plastic cutting board of which I place that wooden cutting board near sink on it for all my Food prep, except for meats where I place a soft plastic cutting board for sanitary reasons.

Above photo is an unplugged Mini Frig where I store all my flour, Grits, Quinoa, Couscous, Rice types, microwave popcorn, pretty much anything sunlight could ruin or that a mouse/rat would want their fury paws on. & to the right of that is a 6 draw rolling cabinet filled to the brim with additional Cutlery, Kitchen specialty Utensils, silverware, Eggs slicers, variety of peelers, and what nots whosawhatsits and doohickeys.
In the adjacent room are multitier racks where the rest of my small appliances are kept. Pretty much every Small Appliance that you can think of with the exception of a Sous Vide (boring way to cook)
BTW Shawn, those are the antifatigue matts that I was suggesting in a previous post.
