Looking space for a table for 2

Hi, First of all I want to see if we could put table in this quite narrow and long kitchen. Also, I think it has to many shelves, what do you think? We are thinking of making double doors to the patio (where the window is). Do you have any advice how to "modernize" this space?

I don't think it has too many shelves because your countertops look like you could use some more storage. I'd remove the open shelf on the left and add cabinets to match what is on the right. I love galley kitchens but there isn't much floor space. You could do a drop table at the sink side and with a couple of stools you could enjoy the light from the windows. If you're up for a bigger project, I'd move the sink nearer the fridge for offloading of foods for prep, maybe on the wall opposite the fridge. Then open up the back wall and add a banquette dining area. Georgetown White Kitchen Contemporary Kitchen Re-design

We are in the middle of the moving in so there are enought shelves..:) I like the idea of the drop table and taburets that is what I was thinking...however, if I do it like on the second photo I would block the door to our interior patio....

It doesn't look like there's enough room for a table. As for the double doors -- it seems you'd be sacrificing too much (storage, having to move the plumbing).

I think your best option, if you can do this, is to:

-remove the wall that is to the left (the one with the paper towels sitting on ti). I would remove it only above the counter. What is on the other side of this? I am hoping you can do a serve-through, as many galley kitchens have.
