If you love to cook...
And have your range against a wall, does it bother you to be looking at the wall? I spend a lot of time at our range, which now faces the family room so I can relate to guests or see the TV. In the new, expanded layout, the range will be against the wall and this bothers me.
My optional plan has the range in the island, but the island is only 30" deep. I would put a raised trim along the back edge to make it more safe. This option allows me to interact more with guests. Please let me know your feelings about this.
