Don't let the new cabinets determine the layout of the kitchen. Measure and inventory the new cabinets. Measure the faceframe for the width and faceframe to the back of the cabinet for the depth. Take pictures if you have to. Non custom cabinets usually come in standard widths, height and depth. If you have non custom cabinets it might be as easy as just swapping the new for the old.

Install will be driven by the location of the sink and major appliances. Start with those cabinets. Measure the kitchen accurately and lay it out on graph paper. Cut accurately sized templates representing the new cabinets and see what fits your space. Once you have the layout (a plan) install is simple.

Have you thought about countertops?

Cabinets

Begin with the sink base cabinet. Center it under the window. Measure he remaining distance to be filled with cabinets. After you have made a list of the available cabinets, see what combinations will fill the remaining space. Look for a wall cabinet to go above the fridge. Also look for a 30 in. wide wall cabinet to go above the stove. Cabinets with "blind" doors go in the inside corners.

A diagram of your cabinet area would be helpful.
