You already have one question posted on this kitchen. It's best to eliminate this second one.

Corner seating nook with flappable seats would provide lots of storage inside and underneath for storing dry/canned food

Do you have room for an island? Eliminate the table , put in an island with countertop extension with enough room for 3 benches and storage below...tables are a waste of space

Is there a closet close by that can be used to store extra pantry items? Just bring whatever is needed into kitchen cabinets as needed. Plus, take a hard look at everything in your cabinets and what you really use. I gained a whole lot of space by giving away extra pots and pans, etc.

What's to the left of the stove? If there's a dining room off of the kitchen, I would use it for everyday meals. Use the space under the window for an island or cabinetry.

If you have a tight budget, consider a used 6 foot long bedroom dresser or a used dining room serving buffet with drawers and doors under the long window where the dog is eating. You could also add some base cabinets or short book cases on this wall.

Hi everyone! Thank you for your suggestions. We do not have a dining room. Additionally, this small space does not give us enough room for a seating nook

So, if you take out the table, buy a used lower cabinet , put a extra wide counter on top of that then three stools around it you will have all kinds of storage below...it will cost you a bit however...but doesn't have to be much...All that space under your current table is wasted space...

Yes a credenza under the windows by the dog bowl. Too bad you have those soffits above your cabinets it would have been a good place to add closed storage.
