Alignment issues - I may be insane and need help

The plan is to have my 4" surface mounted ceiling lights centered over the major appliances: stove, sink and fridge. Ceiling height is 9'.

To get even spacing between the three lights and the walls, the lights don't sit exactly center over the stove (off by 3.5") or the fridge ( off by 1.5"). Sink is perfect.

Why I think this could be noticeable is the upper cabinets will go up to the ceiling, so the center line of the cabinet doors will alert me to the fact the corresponding light is not centered.

What would be more noticeable, slightly off-centered lights or lights that weren't spaced evenly between one another??

I can also accept that another answer is that I'm nuts

Here are two visuals -

Pic 2: vs. perfectly centered over appliances though no longer spaced evenly between one another
