Critique my kitchen layout - jandaman

Looking for a critique.
Building a new home and I got a kitchen guy to measure and do a simple layout so we can go cabinet comparison shopping. Got the sapele wood stained sample door from Barkercabinets and it looks good.

Pantry cabinets had to be 18" depth as a window is on the left wall.
Designer suggested fridge be moved to where it's marked microwave/toaster because there's no counter space by the range. Thoughts?

Island can be made wider but I don't know how wide is good. Hope to have a couple high chairs by the island with people facing the kitchen sink side.

I'm not a layout expert, but I'm bumping this so those who are might respond.

too many pantry doors on the sinkwall and too many narrow cabs on range wall for my taste.I would divide pantrys-place one at each outside end location of each wall. The microwave and toaster oven are behind pantry doors?? I think I'd rather have microwave as part of cabinetry rather than behind doors. toaster ovens generate hi heat-better to rest it on the counter so you can use it to it's full capacity-they can actually be used as a small baking appliance,but needs space around it when heated up. Pull it forward on counter when using -easy to place things in and out and "watch".....when done-push it to back part of counter.You have 69 in of pantry....too much-go ahead and plug in island cabinetry which can include drawers and base roll out pantrys....try to scale back that 69 in of pantry.

Yes, in the original drawing, there is simply not enough room between fridge and range. For me, that would be a cause to remodel, let alone to plan to put it into a new build!
