what would be the best way to update and modernize a kitchen?

The cabinets are white but the laminate is peeling off. I have the ability to paint them any color. The walls can be painted too. Granit is a taupe/brown black, kind of generic. Backsplash is beige tile, affixed in a diamond shape. Dark brown wood floors. Eat in kitchen area has a cathedral shaped ceiling. SS appliances. The entire space is not very big but it's not teeny tiny either.

Pictures would be VERY helpful to us! You CAN paint laminate cabinets but not if they are in bad shape as you have indicated...you will have to at least get your cabinets refaced.

Oh, let me clarify on the cabinets. We can peel the face off and be left with the plain brown very good condition MDF underneath. I know they can be painted. Thanks. Will post pictures.

If the laminate comes completely off in all areas with no glue residue, then yes, you should be able to prime and paint them.
