Options for HW Baseboard heaters

I have a rectangular kitchen (23' x 12') I'd like to renovate.  At present, I have base cabinets along just one of the 12' ends.  HW baseboard heaters run the length one of the 23' walls.  This is the sole source of heat in the kitchen.  The opposite wall is punctuated by doors, windows, and a pantry.  I'd like to renovate and install an L-shaped kitchen, moving both the fridge and the range on the side with the heaters.  Honestly, I feel held hostage by that run of baseboard heaters.  I'm fairly sure I could get by with a shorter run, but that still has the problem of preventing me from installing base cabinets along that wall.  Are there other options I'm not considering? I've tried to investigate kick-plate heaters, but I just don't know how effective they will be at dispersing the heat.
