Color choices for kitchen island ?


I painted my kitchen cabinets and now it’s on to my island.

I replaced the cabinets that were there because they weren’t as functional for space and they were old. I found 2 new base cabinets that were the right size and configuration for $90 total. The only problem the doors did not match. I ordered 2 new doors and a drawer face and painted everything white like the other base cabinet. Currently the other side of the island where we sit is painted the same color as the cabinets. I’m trying to decide if I should leave them the same color as the cabinets, paint them the lighter color as the walls or paint it green like the chairs I just painted and recovered.

I don’t want to paint them white or the gold color in the fabric.

    I like to use a color wheel to find color ideas (google "color wheel"). Complementary color schemes use two opposite colors on the color wheel. Analogous color schemes use adjacent colors on the color wheel. If you have alot of gold and green something in the blue family would be nice.

    I think the contrast of the green would be very pretty

    I like the white much better. It looks so crisp and clean. I would have done all the cabinets in white and used the other colors as accent colors in the room. Just my humble opinion. Best wishes.

      I did mention in the original post that the island cabinets are staying white. I want to paint the other 3 sides of the island

    Paint what ever your accent color is for the kitchen you want to bring out to draw everything together

    Try barn red---it's a neutral color and will help break up all that brown. Kitchen looks gloomy.
