HELP, 1930 KITCHEN/laundry room, furnace room ALL IN ONE. NEED MY SANITY BACK

We have a 1930 kitchen for a family of Five. I have a washer and dryer where cupboards should be and furnace/water heater where a pantry should be. NO Room to cook let a lone eat in this one. Floor is pealing up and warped. This is a one person room for sure. We have old flourescent lighting a fan built into the wall. Cupboards that won't either open and some that won't shut. WORST of all we have recently discovered the rats coming in through the flooring in our furnace room. We have the furnace in the kitchen but no heat vents to heat the kitchen, just open holes to the crawl space. Everything in this space is outdated. We covered the old wall paper with paint and tried to cover the old floor tiles with new could not deal with the asbestos tiles below which are warping and sliding apart. WOW this one needs desparate help. It is IMPORTANT to be more involved with my kids but I closed off when in here. My kitchen has two doors that close me in to the rest of the house. WHAT is worse is people use my kitchen as the front door, and they walk into my laundry room, NOT very inviting. PLEASE HELP - I am desparate and going crazy in here. I Love to cook and entertain but NOT with this one....... My kids are begging for help and sanity..
