Fridge door meet formica counter

Our 50's kitchen nightmare for a family of 5!!

Please remodel our 50's kitchen!! We're a busy family of 5 (family of 6 when step-daughter comes over) with one very tiny galley kitchen. The kitchen has potential for more room, but was horribly designed. What were they thinking? The fridge door literally slams into the entrance way in/out of the kitchen. You have to wait if someone is getting food out of the fridge to enter or leave the kitchen. I had to put little furniture pads so the fridge door wouldn't slam into the counter top. The fridge by the way is too small to hold food for our big family. The counter-tops and matching back-splash are still original green formica with surface burns and scratches everywhere. I use cutting boards to cover the burns. The light fixtures are yellowed from age and use those wonderful fluorescent bulbs. The pantry door is in a horrible location. It slams into the entry door every time one of the kids goes into the pantry. Our oven isn't even regular size, so cooking a 12lb turkey for the family is a challenge. We can't sit in our kitchen as a family because there is a breakfast counter that sits only two and is a waste of space. The breakfast counter is so small; we had to saw the legs of the wooden bar stools so we could fit our legs under the counter space. Our pantry is 4 rows of plywood shelf and so there's no organization just wasted space. All the cabinets are painted, but the paint chips constantly from everywhere. Inside the cabinets, the doors are really gross and showing rot. We use sink traps to catch food particles (nets) because there is no disposal. Oh, and our 80's dishwasher sounds like a tank in a losing battle. So please help this family with a functional, organized kitchen that we can sit in.
