Need your thoughts on reconfiguring my main floor

i would like to open up the space. the previous owners closed in a doorway to create a larger kitchen with more cabinetry. We like to entertain and we are a family of 3. At max likely 12 people in our home while entertaining. part of me would like to switch the kitchen with the living room dining room, so that I can insert windows on the outside wall. I was also thinking of removing the wall with the closet and making a floating staircase with glass to have visibility to people in the living room/dining room. What would you do with this space? Thanks in advance for your creative insight
