We are currently having our kitchen renovated and struggling on a functional lighting layout.
I have attached our floor plan which comprises of our kitchen area, dining area and our living area.

Currently we have around 24 spots in the whole area but our kitchen layout will be now be different to out last kitchen and therefore it needs to be completely changed to accommodate this new kitchen.

Any suggestions on how we could get a lighting layout that will work?

I guess you have had no replies because (I for one) do not understand exactly what it is you are asking.

You seem to be asking how to get a lighting layout to work for your new kitchen. That would be up to you, as to where things will be and how bright you want each part. Better to have more lights than you need than to have not enough, and you can always use ericmark's suggestion. 1/3 of the lights on 1 switch 2/3 on another switch. That way you get multiple options with only 2 switches and no dimmer required.
There are available programmes that you give it information and it tells you how bright it will be but you probably will not get one free.

Take it easy, a forum is only a collection of opinions. Above, are mine.

Which is correct? Metre or Meter? Click the link. to find out more.
