Extended Kitchen vs Breakfast nook

Tiffany Silva
last year

Hello Houzz! I just bought a home built in 2013 with a kitchen that looks completely outdated (crazy how things change in 8 years). This home has an open L-shaped Kitchen/nook/living area with VERY little natural light (4 windows and a door in the space all on the back wall). There is a completely separate formal dining room.

Looking for recommendations on updating/renovating the kitchen/nook with modern farmhouse style while bringing in more light. I do not have kids at home so I’m not sure I need a separate breakfast nook, in addition to the island bar seating and a dining room. Would prefer to extend the kitchen in some way.

Would it be feasible to add windows to the far wall where there currently aren’t any? Is that a mistake with the TV directly opposite (glare)? What would Houzz do??

See current pics and inspo pic. Thanks!
