Kitchen Renovation

I'm not sure where this belongs but I don't see a better topic...

I'm gutting my kitchen and starting again. It was probably 50 years old so I guess it was time.

My head *hurts* from the amount of information I need to weigh and the number of decisions I need to begin making. I could use some help.

Does anyone have experience with design, materials and appliances they'd care to share? Does someone know of another forum, perhaps, where I could get unbiased information?

The only thing I know is that I want to start with a Kitchen Aid oven that has steam injection for baking bread. That, and I want a seamless surface but think granite and all those polished surfaces are entirely too Las Vegas for the 50s-style-cum-funky-country that I'm aiming at.

Help. Please. And thanks!
