Hiw to modernize my warm walnut cabinet kitchen

We just bought this 1978 home. It has really nice walnut cabinets that have turned a little amber over the years. They are in great shape and we want to keep them. We are redoing a lot in the house. We are trying to decide on wood floors and what to do to modernize this kitchen. It has a big soffit with can lights above the cabinets. The soffit isn’t terrible over the long line of cabinets with the pantry and fridge but fills like it make the space smaller over the u shaped work area of the kitchen. One of the main issues I have is the stove top is on the peninsula with down draft. I feel like it hinders the serving area or just not a great flow. We just can figure out the best way to fix this. What is your suggestions for flooring, pulls, countertop?
