Kitchen lighting suggestions wanted.

My present kitchen lighting is 39 year old bare 4 foot single bulb fluorescent tube fixtures above a suspended ceiling with translucent panels. There are 10 lamps. I really like the bright kitchen that results, but the fixtures and panels are old and will require some replacing in the future.
The least expensive option would be to replace the panels with new ones and change the ballasts and bulbs to T-8. (or T-5) But the dated appearance would be the same. An additional option is to replace the metal support rails with wood ones. (Which I could easily make.)

LED light recommendation for kitchen

currently the recessed kitchen lighting uses 4 light bulbs like these
I have 1 remaining standard bulb while the other 3 are energy efficient Hg something that uses 14w. The problem is those crappy energy efficient bulbs start dim and take like a minute to reach their full brightness. So everytime I turn the lights on, it's dim at first. I'm thiinking about going with the LED but it's quite pricey - $39.97/each
