Floor plan advice, need help with layout

We are downsizing (empty nesters) and have a plan drawn up but it needs some help. Here are the things I'm struggling with:

Half bath. Builder says he'll soundproof, etc, and if we keep it here, I'd add cabinets to the back side to make the wall so it is as least 8' to accommodate a sofa in the living room. Is this just weird on paper, because it looks like it is just plopped down in the middle of everything? Will it feel better when it is actually built? We have a virtual reality meeting set up so we should hopefully get a better idea then. Where else could we move the guest bath to, and would doing so leave too much wide-open space?

Kitchen island. I don't like the one rounded edge.

Garage entry. We don't want the washer/dryer in this room. How could we reconfigure the washer/dryer room and the odd shaped closet and even take from the master WIC to accommodate the W/D better?

Any other things we should notice?

Thank you!
