Inserting a stainless steel microwave in that big space over the stove will give your kitchen a new look alone.

Oh! And don't forget to change your sink faucets to a modern long neck faucet set.

I also have oak cabinets. However, an update was not truly challenging but rewarding. In your case, you can have the same experience by changing the oval pattern doors to straight edge doors. For example, the two small doors over the stove area can be replaced for about $70.00 doors by ordering the straight edge little doors from lowes cabinet area (Shenandoah is the manufacturer). Actually you can get as creative as possible with all straight edge framed doors which bring in a simplier contemporary look. This means replace some of the curve doors within creativity to fit your budget. Also, putting straight stainless steel handles and knobs on the cabinet will bring an updated appearance. Don't forget to tear out the outdated wooden breadbox in the corner. You want to work towards a clean straight look from all angles. Taking this away from your cabinets will give you room for a lighting system to be evenly spaced underneath the cabinets. Don't forget to take that ceiling fan down. Stay away from replacement fans that have the four way global lighting. There are fans which maintain one single light in the middle. Since the hubby isn't thinking about granite, try the corian countertops for a updated dimension. Oh yeah!!! don't forget to change the old outlets to stainless and the light switches to sliders. Things are not as bad as they seem.
