Is the kitchen island too big?

last modified: last month

We are designing our new apartment and me and my SO are having a discussion about the layout of the kitchen/living room. Current solution is that the island has to be behind the sofa and it should be the same length to look aligned. That makes the island around 240cm (8ft). To me it seems a bit too big, or am I exaggerating?


Thanks for so many replies! Just want to clarify couple of things. In reality the island would have cabinets and a two seat part at the edge to make it more functional, and the sofa would be rather simple than sectional, we would aim for similar height too.
