What exactly concerns you about the island? What wall are you moving the cooktop to?

It is a full range cooktop and its moved to the wall to the left same wall as fridge. The photos are taken from the open concept dining room. So when you are sitting having dinner you see the edge of the island that is planned to be rectangle and perpendicular to the sink where the windows are. I like the idea of having this edge of the island face the open dining room and having seating to the right, 2 or 3 stools.... just want some guidance.

The purpose would be to have seating and even a prep sink if needed. You can usually add undercounter refrigeration and storage drawers in the island. I like being able to access cold beverages without going into the refrigerator, especially when there are children in the house. However, focusing on what is needed is most important. One thing I will point out, or rather, ask you is how close you will be placing the cooktop to the refrigerator. There are clearance issues and since you have an oven, there is the issue that if it is too close to the refrigerator, it will make your compressor work harder. Let me know and I'll be happy to make suggestions.
