We had the contractors start the parade - looking at the layout of the kitchen and the cabinet construction, the overall construction of the house and the kitchen in particular. The bids came in - slowly at first and then in a deluge. The prices were astounding. This was in the early 1980's and the low bid was $12,000, and that was for a new sink, paint and "new cabinet facings" (new doors on the existing cabinets!) Now the house was not inexpensive, but these prices were out of sight! Times were much like today, many people out of work and contracts were few and far between.
Apart from this, another factor that you may come across while browsing the best interior design websites, is a clever use of color for kitchens. Though in the western society there is a propensity of using white as a standard color for the kitchen cabinets, keeping in mind the Indian way of preparing food and all the spices and oil we use while cooking that may not be the best idea. Using a darkish color, preferably the wood colored cabinets is a better idea in the Indian context.
If you have an older house with an enclosed kitchen, you may even wish to remove the door or widen the entry to make it feel less closed off from the rest of the house. Modern kitchens are social centers, after all, not just places to cook food. Need more countertop space? Before you install all new ones, think about reorganizing your existing appliances and storage, or bringing in a cart and butcher block. Those methods can do a lot for your kitchen without the need to tear things out.
