Kitchen Layout Help - Peninsula or not?

Hi Everyone, We are in the process of gathering ideas for a kitchen update with the goal of maximizing storage and creating better flow. There are 5 of us in the home - 3 adults and 2 teenagers. There are typically 1 or 2 of us cooking meals at a time. The renovation budget is 50-60k so we are trying to avoid structural change.

I have included a picture of the current layout and a new design with measurements provided by a kitchen designer. We asked for a design without the peninsula as the space between the peninsula and fridge causes congestion. And there is a cabinet in the peninsula that becomes inaccessible when someone is cooking. However, after consideration, I am concerned that removing the peninsula will change the function of the kitchen. I am seeking opinions on keeping or removing the peninsula or alternatives to this layout.

Thank you for reading!
