New kitchen layout help in a 1940s kitchen

We are looking to take down the wall that the stove sits, however, that would require the stove to be in the newly created peninsula which I don't love. We would add a raised breakfast bar on the peninsula. Ideally, we would love to keep most of our cabinets, but I was toying around the idea of doing a contrast color on the base cabinets so we could move appliances around.

I would like to add new cabinets on the wall with the fridge (we will be getting a counter depth fridge). It seems we would only be able to add a tall pantry or small cabinet because we won't have a wide enough walkway if we put cabinets on the full wall. Below are photos of the current kitchen, along with a roughly drawn floor plan. In the last photo, I was playing around with a kitchen planning tool, which is the best option I ended up with.

Open to any ideas!
