What are your thoughts on having carpet running alongside the island?

We are currently building and will have an open plan kitchen/lounge/dining area. What are your thoughts on how the vinyl planking and carpet is laid out in the attached photo? Specifically how the carpet runs along the edge of the island?

This is what we are planning, as we can't really afford to put vinyl planking throughout the entire

room (and prefer the softer feel of carpet in the lounge). We have kids who will smoosh food into the carpet daily, so want to keep the vinyl planking under the dining table.

Anyway, practically and financially this makes the most sense for us but do you think it looks a bit odd? I can't decide. There is no other point that we can divide the room, as there will be a window in the way.
