I acknowledge what you say and interestingly I have also gone for a U shaped kitchen in my newly build house ..

Definitely recommend the floor to ceiling cupboards :-). I have a fold out step from Ikea to help reach the upper levels and all the storage is super useful. Aesthetically, scribing the tops of our cupboards (which couldn’t go completely to the ceiling due to steels) to close-up the gap is preferable; nowhere for the greasy dust to accumulate, nowhere for the pesky cats to attempt to clamber (!) and the light bounces back into the room rather than creating a dark and gloomy cavity at the top.

I can see the appeal, rationally. But you need a very large space to get away with floor-to-ceiling design, otherwise you sacrifice counter top surface. Personally, I find such design slightly nightmarish and disturbing - I'm not sure why!
Having said that, the design of Verity & Beverley Ltd is utterly divine.
