Getting new doors is the best idea, as they’re going to last for a very long time and they will match with the rest of your kitchen style. Although refinishing is a good idea too, it would not last longer and you will be spending more and unnecessary money.
You have an option of just re facing your cabinets if they are just fine but with this you will need to cover the exterior of the outside boxes and switch the doors into new ones. But if you need more space for storage, then you just ask a designer how you should create more cabinets.
The interior of the cabinets need to be more functional and practical rather than just beautiful. For your storage to be safe, the shelves need to be straight and the hinges, strong and firmly attached. Also, the ‘cabinet box’ needs to be strong and built with strong and good materials, able to hold everything up.
The external elements like knobs and pulls can be exchanged as trends change, the only thing that matters is for them to match with the kitchen style and be sure they are as functional as you need them to be.
Drawers are more convenient than shelves, because they allow you to access and hide all your kitchen elements and equipment.
Remember that you interact with your cabinets from time to time and so they need to have that aesthetical appeal but also functional and effective, if they are too damaged you need to repair them, changing them will give your kitchen a nice and fresh look.
