Switching the way the island is facing in our kitchen

We always planned on having an island facing the stove, but after laying out the dimensions today, realized if we do a 8x5 island, it only leaves us 3.5 ft. walkway. So we taped off another option and switched the island around to face the windows, and we can do a 9x6 ft. Island while having 4.5 ft. walkway space. We would make the seating area at the end of the island like the inspiration photo, with 3 chairs at the end and 1 chair on each side facing each other.

We are still warming up to the idea, but what are your thoughts?
