Help with dark, viewless kitchen and dining room

We live in a typical 1930s semi. It has a nice garden, but the ground floor gives almost no view of it!

Can anyone suggest a cost-effective way that we can improve the existing structure to allow in light and give us views of our garden?

The view is currently blocked by the outside boiler cupboard and previous owner’s extension that created a downstairs toilet and back porch, but blocked part of the rear bay. The toilet is really handy though, as we can use it both from inside and also when gardening, without traipsing mud through the house. We also need to retain the side access gate for bins etc.

Should we knock through the (supporting) wall between the lounge and dining room? Any ideas would be brilliant as we are totally stuck! Our budget including a new kitchen is about £80,000.
