My kitchen cabinets were old and dirty, needing either a serious clean or some new paint. I decided to go the paint route. Here are the cabinets before:
I am renting, so I really can't do much beyond painting. I went to my favorite local hardware store and was going to have this white color mixed, but then the paint man mentioned that they had some of the color pre-mixed and on clearance because they no longer had room for it on their shelves. So I got a gallon of this paint for $5.

Here is the after:
I am very happy with how breezy and light the kitchen feels now. Now I just need to add a few pops of color. On a wall not pictured here I have some plates hanging, and they are all floral with pink. So I would like to find something to play off that. Also, the walls now look even more in need of some fixing, so it's possible I would decide to paint the backsplash and area above the cabinets. Green, maybe? A light green? Something that plays off the color of the aloe plant?
