I would definitely get cabinet pulls to match the sink/cooktop and a modern light fixture to match. Then paint the walls an ivory/off white but warm tone and put in a backsplash. On top of the cabinets, display some brightly coloured pottery or something of the like. This should all come together to draw the eye away from the cabinets.

Also, chose an accent colour wisely, something bright enough to offset the overpowering oak.

If you could put the microwave somewhere else, I would get good undercounter lighting and also light the microwave box and use it as a display case. Again, drawing the eye there.

Lastly, if possible, remove the breadbox (?) in the corner. The problem is not the cabinets themselves, it is the connected overpowering, popping out mass that is like an oak-monster!

For a treat, Brianna's makes a cheddar chipotle dressing which is delicious on this sort of thing!

How about a nice spicy black bean soup with a fresh salad and tortilla chips on the side? Or black bean tacos with avocado and lime on corn tortillas.

Another way to go would be a Thai curry served over rice (or Khao Soi, a red curry soup with egg noodles, tofu and mushrooms!)
