First, start thinking about what your kitchen should be. Is it simply a place to cook, or will friends and family be helping you or being entertained in the kitchen? Do you cook a lot, or is your culinary skill mostly limited to heating up something from a box? How much counter space do you like to have? This kind of information will tell you how much of a remodel you're going to need to do in order to get the kitchen that's right for you. If all new counters must be installed, or different appliances are required, that'll be a bigger, more complex, and more expensive project than a simple redecoration.
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.
There are lots of minor things you can do to improve a kitchen that's not terribly friendly to work in. Simply moving the appliances or changing the way you store things can be a big help. Consider taking the doors off the cabinets and leaving them open. You'll be surprised by how much it opens up a room. A new coat of paint can change how open or closed in the kitchen feels, as can choosing to move some items to a pantry or other storage area instead of leaving them in the kitchen proper.
