I am a big believer in the "Open Floor Plan" which has fewer walls and doors, with rooms tied together as open visual space. Keeping the Great Room, Dining Room and Kitchen "open" (meaning no walls between them) help make all the rooms "feel bigger". The wall removal helps facilitate the open communications between the rooms. You don't feel isolated in the kitchen when wall barriers are removed, and thus people don't have to step into the kitchen to talk to you. They can do it from outside the kitchen zone.
To add a touch of utilitarian elegance, the inclusion of an old fashioned butler's pantry to your kitchen will fit the bill. A butler's pantry will contain your fine china, crystal, silverware, serving platters, and other items used when you entertain guests. Usually located between the kitchen and dining room, this area allows the butler (or you) to prepare the dining room, serve guests, and perform preliminary cleanup without getting in the way of the kitchen staff (or you, again). If you include a sink and mini-fridge in the butler's pantry, it greatly enhances your ability to entertain, and not be stuck in the kitchen.
