Have you thought about refacing the cabinets? This is surprisingly easy to do if you know how. I have recently written a book on the subject. You can check it out at my publisher's web page. The Taunton Press www.taunton.com.
Look for "Refacing Cabinets: Making an Old Kitchen New". It also applies to bathrooms. If you go to the web page, you can read the entire introduction of the book and that will give you a very good idea of what information is in it.
Refacing needn't be an expensive option, especially if you do it yourself. And, like I said, it's a surprisingly simple process.
