How would you do a minor update to our small double-galley kitchen?

Twenty years ago we did a kitchen remodel, but now it ism way outdated. A major kitchen remodel isn't in the cards or budget, so we're thinking new countertop (definitely need to replace that late '90s Formica), sink, faucet and putting in a subway tile backsplash.

We recently painted, and I like the color. We thought about getting the cabinets painted, but, after reading several posts here, are leaning against it.

Thoughts on colors/styles that would go with our maple cabinets. Replace the floor? Removing the desk area at the end is definitely in the plan but how can we extend the counter without mismatching the cabinets?

These pics are just the window wall; on

the opposite wall is a pantry cabinet, stove, fridge, and two small cabinets.
