Kitchen remodel

I posted this in remodeling and it was suggested I post here.

We are going to completely remodel our 27 year old kitchen. The wall (non loadbearing) between the kitchen and dining room is going to be removed. Currently, the dining is small and dark. The general contractor who did numerous repairs and painted the exterior is coming to talk to us about the remodel. We were pleased with his attention to details on the exterior. But, he is not a designer and I am wondering if I should have a kitchen designer to the job start to finish or just get a design and have a GC complete the remodel.
This is the first interior remodel we have ever done. Any tips on what to be aware of with the design and the contract?
The picture shows the view of the kitchen from the foyer.

I have attached a very crude layout of the current kitchen. Any suggestions for a better more functional design would be appreciated. The large round table will definitely go away.
