Help me design my new kitchen!

I would SO MUCH appreciate your opinion. We're remodeling our kitchen.
The window will be enlarged and the soffit is vamoose! Should our new
cabinets be wood or painted a color? I ask because it seems like we
already have lots of wood in our little house, and I don't want to overdo it.

White is not an option (my husband works at home and is
in the kitchen with very dirty hands all day. The cupboards would never
stay clean.) Options we're considering are a grey/blue on the bottom
cupboards with a lighter tone on the tops. Or maybe black on the bottom?
Or should we just go with wood, and if so, do you have a recommendation
for color/tone? I would also like your opinion about the countertop color.

The kitchen/dinette floor is grey/taupe terrazzo, and
the dining/living room floor is wood.

As you can see, we have a red couch. So we're not afraid of color. Also note that we have a good amount of black accents.

Sub-question: I HATE the 1970s entertainment center. Any ideas for bringing it into the 21st century?

Thank you in advance. I trust y'all!
