Answer for Dark Stained and Lacquered Kitchen Cabinets

The only way to lighten stained wood is to strip and restain. You could strip only the dark doors and see how this looks. Much easier than trying to refinish everything. Using a bleaching compound on stain will produce an uneven blotchy appearance. Use a stripper to remove the finish and as much stain as possible, do some light sanding then restain.
