Maybe you are thinking of a simple kitchen reface and rework. If so, keep in mind it may be a good idea to get a professional designer to also take a look at the project. Designers sometimes can give you a whole new spin on your project.
For instance if an island will not fit, think peninsulas. If placed properly a peninsula can perform equally and sometimes better than the island counterpart. Taking the project one step further would be to open up a normal doorway into the next room. It can be truly amazing how transforming the space can be by even just partially opening up to an adjoining family or living room.
With those changes, adding new counters, particularly the seamless type, with an under mounted sink, you can be the new owners of an award winning looking kitchen.
