Given that I'm not able to replace the cabinets and they are so busy should I just remove the door pulls and find a less obvious hinge to replace the existing ones?

The cabinets with the hinge and handle are definitely MCM, but keep in mind there were a lot of different styles back then - hollywood regency, cinderella/fairytale, and the more western/homestead (which this looks like). Not everything was Danish or flat slab style, anymore than there's only one contemporary style today.

It looks like someone added new cabinetry and tried to keep them as close as possible. I would change the hardware on the new to match the old and when expenses allow, replace the doors of the new to something that is flat slab style to be a closer match.

Roman shades sound great especially with a bright and cheery fabric. Check out Retrorenovation for some more ideas.

I've worked on several mid-century modern homes. Look into hardware that is long and linear. Maybe even one that is as concealed as possible like these from Top Knobs? Top Knobs – Quality Craftsmen Knobs and Handle Pulls

You may want to order some roll-outs like these from rev-a-shelf for better organization: Base Cabinet Pullout Single Wood Basket Sink & Base Accessories

You're back-splash could do nicely with some contract. Consider grey and tan neutrals. Linear direction to the tiles will make the space feel less boxy: Recomended to Houzz Users

Have fun remodeling!!
