That is boxed in!

Hard to know scale, but I would get rid of the breakfast table area by the french doors and expand my kitchen out that way. Move your fridge and ovens over to that wall and get rid of the desk. Where the load-bearing wall is, replace it with a header or steel beam so you can lose that wall. I would probably do lower cabinets with a breakfast bar/stools either on the LR side or the DR side.

Good luck.

I've found the video showing the detailed steps for refacing kitchen. In a modern kitchen Cabinet doors are the first thing to be noticed. The video tutorial by Cabinet Refacing to Go is of great help in refacing cabinets.

I hope the video will be helpful to you...
