Updating kitchen

HI everyone.I am in of some advice. I am refinishing my old orange wood floor and cabinets .I am going to use like a light walnut stain mixed in polyurethane for the floor .I want to banish the orange and yellow hues and little spots of the old finish I can't remove with every techNiue that I know. The cabinets are a problem. I don't flow what to do with them. Money is my boss and it's very tight .I want to somehow change the style of them maybe add some kind of trim to them? I would like to make them look modern or contemporary? Paint or stain I don't know but kinda thinking stain ? The counterparts is laminate that I put on about 10 yrs ago and I'm repaving that too leaning towards a dark color too.Above the cabinets is boxed in to the ceiling which I want to take down I really don't think anythings behind it. I M not even sure about what color to paint! Any suggestions or ideas would greatly be appreciated!!! Ha I meant replacing counter laminate but I did think about doing concrete but I'm worried that would get stained or cracked with my luck and the company I keep! Thank you all!

pics would allow us to see what you have to work with - http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...-pictures.html

Stain requires raw wood so you'd have to completely strip off the old finish first. Tinted polys [like Minwax PolyShades] can alter the existing finish but can be difficult to apply. Tinted polys are not recommended for floors! Here is a good tutorial on painting cabinets - http://www.doityourself.com/forum/pa...t-repaint.html

There's many easy things you can do to get the cabinets looking better. New doors would be ideal but are costly.
To get you started on painting, check out this Rustoleum kit:

I've seen several kitchens that were painted with this kit and the homeowners did a good job finishing with it, looked professional.

Hard for me to tell from the pic but is that damage to the veneer on the 2nd drawer on the right?
If so, the only viable options would be new fronts or repairing the existing and painting them.
