ITA! Although these rooms are always beautiful. they're seldom typical of the lay out and features (or lack of) a typical house in my area. I have the same problem with table sizes as you. In fact, I generally have a dining area where I'm lucky to jam in a table with 4 chairs with nothing else! Sigh

Is there a wrong and right flow, from a kitchen to a living room or from kitchen to a dining room?

You should always aim for at least a 30" wide passage between any of those rooms. Then, it becomes a matter of how connected you want those spaces to be. Is it wide and full height? A door-height opening? A countertop height pass through? Just cabinetry to divide? Or no separation at all? It's a range of options based on the spatial relationships you want to create.
