If you need a life hack though here are a lot. I haven't tried or researched each tip to verify if it works so bear that in mind. However, if you tested any of them and know that it works, please confirm in the comments.
Love the floor plan layout. Put french doors all around the dining so it can open up, U-shaped island coming toward living with built in booth seating, make area behind cabinets a hidden pantry.I could definitely work with this layout!
