Dytecture
Floor plans are a bit too light to see, and not crazy about the angled wall in the kitchen.

Do these dimensions look like what you have in mind?

I agree with Dytecture, I never favor angled walls; you will always lose space this way.
My feeling is that you could have a very nice kitchen in this space. Go for tall storage cabinets on the inner wall if possible (nothing there now). Then avoid upper cabinets in the rest of the room.

We needed better access to the staircase and remodeling old ranch style house. Do you think we should use as part of the new kitchen the small hallway between kitchen and office? or keep the hallway and have smaller kitchen? thank you again

I always opt for fewer hallways. To elaborate on that, I feel that older houses were generally larger, and could afford to waste space on hallways, back stairs, built-ins, etc. Newer houses have less space overall, and our lifestyles don't usually require the formality seen in older construction.
Older houses also typically didn't have very satisfactory kitchens, which is probably more of a statement about the culture at that time, where emphasis was placed, the role of women, etc.

Hello again. Finally installed new windows. What do you think about our kitchen layout. We like to make contemporary looking kitchen. Thanks for your time and advice!

I love the windows! Such a great idea.
And your kitchen design is very appealing! Can you get a tall storage unit or two built in on the same wall as the fridge?

Beautiful project. S*

Thank you so much ! We are planning tall storage unit between fridge and ovens, only about 21 inch wide ( no more space).Another storage/pantry between kitchen and office. I hope we do not make any major mistakes with kitchen design- we cook everyday, love to have friends for dinners. Very grateful for any advice! thanks *
