The kitchen-sink-plumbing will include all kitchen plumbing for water lines therein. Your refrigerator plumbing will be the next plumbing that will be considered after the kitchen sink.
If you have an extra sink for washing vegetables then it will be your next area of concern. Some people like a faucet at the stove so they have water readily available when cooking. In that case a hard water line needs to be to this faucet (see pic below)
Our son had one of these installed above his range. It was a very convenient addition to his home. He loved having it right there where he could add water to the soup, or if they were warming up water for something to drink, or whatever, it was so easy. They have since moved, and I'm betting this is one thing they really miss.
If you have softened water, then these extra water sources have to be planned for. Since we should not drink salted water and softened water has been softened with salt, you have to provide a cold-water line to the kitchen sink that has not been softened.
A separate hard water line needs to be directed to each drinking water line. This would be the cold water line only.
Drinking water lines in your family room, or any bedroom bathrooms need to be planned for with hard, unsoftened, water to the cold water lines too. There's nothing like having to go clear down stairs to the kitchen to get a glass of water to drink in the middle of the night. Planning ahead will add convenience to your life with regards to your kitchen plumbing.
