Plan to completely update a 1950's California Kitchen...long and narrow 9' x 17'. This space includes an eating area.

Where can I check out decent pictures/ideas/floorplans of what other people have done with this type of kitchen? Any ideas on how to make the space look BIGGER would be helpful too!

Heard a skylight would help. Should we leave space above the cabinets or take them to the ceiling? How about space under the cabinets...should we have that "furniture" look or take them to the floor? How about color, chair rail/crown molding, pattern on floor, etc. to add space to the room?

IMO, for floor and walls, I think solid colors look "bigger" than patterns.
As to cabinets, perhaps you can reduce their depth. Everybody needs cabinet space, but mostly in the "front" of the cabinet, and the space in the back often goes to waste.
