Kitchen design too big for my apartment?

last month

I'm about to renovate my kitchen and have landed on a design that I'm very happy with. The only thing is that is now huge (going from L-shaped to U-shaped) and I have a significant amount of extra storage.

Is it out of proportion having such a big kitchen? I've included a snapshot of what my anticipated kitchen design and also what my current apartment floor plan is for perspective.

Note: the 'meals' area was just an awkward corner. I was going to install a wall mounted, pull down table/bench against the wall next to the door so that there is some bench space to eat at (if I one day rent my place out, I'm assuming tenants will want some kind of bench to dine on, rather than just eat in the living room like I do). Also, all my walls are load bearing, solid brick.
