Kitchen remodel - here do I start?

We want to remodel our kitchen and dining room. This will mean adding a small single storey extension, knocking through the internal wall between the kitchen and dining room, possibly moving a window and creating an internal wall to make a large cupboard, then refitting the kitchen, utility room and cloakroom.

I've got various ideas about what needs to be done but I have no idea where to start.

I talked to an architect who said he would do a feasibility study for us but I don't really understand what this will gain me.

Should I go for the feasibility study then get him to draw up plans? then approach builders?

Should I get building companies in and hope they will have a "pet "architect who can advise me?

Should I get a kitchen/interior designer in and if so will they advise on the whole project or just the kitchen layout?

I'm on a limited budget so suspect I can't afford the interior designer option but at the moment I'm going round in circles and getting nowhere - I can visualise myself still scratching my head in 12 months time!

Any advice gratefully recieved!
