Kitchen Cabinet/Backsplash Suggestions

My parents are looking to sell their home but they would like to give their kitchen some attention before doing so. I have wanted to refinish their cabinets for years and they are now ready to do it to increase their home value. However we have struggled to decide whether to stain or paint the cabinets. The cabinets, which are red oak, are over 30 years old and have received no attention over that time. The backsplash and countertops are the same color which I feel limits color possibilities for the cabinets. Additionally I worry the wood shutters won't go with refinished kitchen cabinets. My parents are open to changing the backsplash but not the shutters at this time. Can the community provide some suggestions? Thank you 🙏.
