I will reinforce the "declutter" mantra - we just bought a house that has a tiny kitchen with minimal counterspace and open shelving instead of traditional cabinetry. Total potential for lots of clutter and frustrating lack of storage, but the sellers did such a phenomenal job staging it that it inspired us to purge and get back to the basics. We looked at houses that had much bigger kitchens, but the light, colors, and modern feel of our tiny kitchen was what sold us. It just felt CLEAN, and we wanted to live in CLEAN. With that said, I think the yellow paint needs to go - does not err on the side of clean. Maybe go for a white or a crisp blue or gray - something to modernize it up and bring in cool elements. The stain of the counter tops combined with the floor and the yellow walls make it look dreary and outdated. Definitely add some modern hardware, scrub those stovetop eyes, and I would go with bare walls over small hanging items. You don't have to re-design the whole kitchen, you just want to get it to a bare palette that potential buyers can envision their own style and home laid on top.
