kitchen layout help please!

August 17, 2019

-We are a family of 4.
-Cook about 3-4 times/week.
-Rarely use the big oven. Usually use small toaster oven.
-use microwave everyday
-We use the small bay window dining room everyday because it s nice and bright with natural light and it s looking out to a nice deck and backyard. When we have party/gathering, everyone also like to gather in the small bay window area. There is also a TV in this room.
-I like window behind cooktop and sink idea.
-The current formal dining room and living room are rarely used. They both kind of dark, not enough natural light even though there is a big window in each room.
-Our concern is the new kitchen layout is too open and too close to front entry. The mess can be seen easily. But we need a bigger open area for gathering...
-We need more storage
-we already look into beam and structures. All walls can be removed with some support beams.
-Appreciate any suggestion!
I could only post 4 pictures.
Current layout and proposed layout.
