Should I paint my kitchen cabinets white with a glaze?

The cabinets are about 5 years old, I believe they are birch. I think painting them white with a glaze over them would really brighten up the room. I think white will make the counters pop more. There is also a rope inlay in the cabninets and I think the glaze would help make it pop. My plan is to keep the cabinets over and around the stove unpainted and the island unpainted. My only 2 fears are that I will retract value from the house by painting over the wood and that the paint job will not look like it came from the factory that way and the cabinets will be ruined. I have attached a picture of the kitchen, the cabinet detail and an example of what I am thinking of doing. What do you think???
