LED lighting, while expensive, lasts longer and burns much cooler than halogen etc. White cabinets are most peoples first choice (67%), quartz counters gaining in popularity in shades of white and gray.
Glass backsplashes, with neutral colors ruling in cabinets and counter tops, glass tile is a great way to add color and personality to your kitchen.

Kitchen cabinets take up a big portion of remodeling budgets, this excerpt/link from Consumers Reports should help you decide where to put your money with cabinets.
Put your money where it counts:
If you’re on a tight budget, skip the nonessentials and focus on convenience. Work-savers include a lazy Susan, a pull-down soap and sponge holder, and deep drawers for pots. Glazing, while nice, typically adds 10 to 20 percent to the cost. Remember to factor labor into your budget, since installation can easily account for more than half of the cabinets’ cost.
