Paint, Replace, Refinish, or Restore Kitchen Wood Cabinets

2 months ago

My home is in the Pacific NW town of Beaverton, Oregon. The house is 3600 sq ft and has beautiful wood plank ceilings which will stay the way they are. The kitchen area needs updating with new flooring, countertops, sink/faucet, light fixture(s), paint the white rail upstairs black, and new neutral wall paint. But to start, my first question is (1) “what about the cabinets?”. I really don’t want to take them out for a full remodel — so, should I have them refaced, painted, or just keep them and restore the luster to the wood? Then I move on to (2) should we move to stovetop to the wall (left of the sink) and then (3) take out the peninsula to create an island? Any other comments about the space are also welcome.
