Is it possible to get these old cabinets looking good again. How can i design the kitchen to add stove of larger size then original?

can you add island with electric stove. Change to hinges that don't show and get new hardware. You probably need to remove the swoop over the window and get new counter-tops and floor. Could also consider painting cabinets and brown trim.

I second the idea for adding an island with a stove. Are your cabinets solid wood?

Do the open and close well? You could paint them and get new hardware.

yes I think so. What type of island would I put with the existing cabinets?

it doesn't have to match.. you could get it covered in bead board and paint it a cool color like "old barn red" or black or dark stained. If you keep the cabinets without paint they will need a good scrubbing or sanding and refinishing.

Hi debby,
I noticed your kitchen lacks a true backsplash, and since you're remodeling, was wondering if you planned on installing one?

Aside from replacing the doors and adding crown molding, the island idea from altruwood sounds good if you have the area for it. And seems you don't have a corner cabinet left of the stove, does the stove align with the sink? or is facing the other wall? If you send me the measurements I can send you a proposal

Can you take a shot from other angles? It would help to get more ideas! :)
The island idea sounds great, IF you have the room, but it's hard to give advice on one angle of room.

For a budget friendly makeover, I suggest Gel Staining the cabinets Expresso and add new hardware could save you 5-10k google before and after gel stained cabinets
