Kitchen island color advice

Hi! I've shared my issues with other forums and continue to seek help for a consistent answer. Maybe you all can help.

I recently gave my kitchen a facelift: granite, granite sink, backsplash, and new pulls/knobs. I have NOT changed my cabinet or wall color (as I do like the colors). Also, we did NOT change the tile floor as it fell outside our budget. We are selling the house this summer. After adding columns to our island, I'm ready to paint it, but I can decide on a color. Please help! The pictures uploaded were created on a paint app. So, should I do white, black, brown, yellow or blue (the yellow and blue would be antiqued with a dark wax). Thank you!

Hello and welcome to the forum. Since you're selling it, I'd just stick with the white. The other colors don't really fit in any where as far as I can tell. JMO.

Hi! Thank you for taking the time to answer. I was originally going to do white... I feel like it's so boring. I can appreciate the simplicity of it, though. Thanks again.

White is the best choice. Plus, since you;re going to sell the house white always gives a better, cleaner and roomier look to a room. Let the new owner decide what they want.

I like the dark brown one the most gives it a little character. I white would be too boring.

Personally, I don't like any of the choices so I vote white as well since it's the most neutral.
