Remove the bathroom to fix the floorplan?

We bought our 1950's cottage and are trying to figure out how to make the floorplan to as functional as possible. Our issue is with the only bathroom. It juts out between the living and kitchen making for a bit of bottlenecking whenever more than 3 of us are trying to move around the house.

Should we move it to the laundry room and make our space open concept? Or would it be too weird having a full bathroom on the back of the kitchen? Would it be better just to fix up the bathroom and kitchen and leave the placement as is?

Eventually we will add a master bath off our room (taking up some of the back porch) but with kids we'd like to have a second separate bath.
