First recommendation would be mixing in the bin pull. (Unless you have a contemporary kitchen of course). And when it comes to finish, remember if you are selling, now is not the time to make your big design statement. I would stick to safe yet stylish.
For white cabinets, I think the chrome will have greater longevity over the brushed nickel look.

The brass is FABULOUS however probably not a good selection for the larger market when selling.
Contemporary kitchens won't be able to "pull' off the bin pulls. :) So, my next pick is the steel bar pull
These GORGEOUS kitchens are designed by Martensen Jones Interiors. I seriously die over most everything in their portfolio so please check it out if you haven't already. Similar pulls can be found at Home Depot here.
These pulls work well with any cabinet finish where you have a shaker style or flat front door. You can also do the bronze version which is pretty fabulous on these cabinets...

And next of course we have the basic cabinet pull. The catch with these is that I suggest the simple designs, no fancy little carvings or shapes, just simple and classic. I happen to like these oil rubbed bronze knobs:
And for $.97 cents, you cant beat it! Find them on sale here
And then of course there's the trusty silver family. I will say that even in the most stunning kitchen, these still work like a charm. Aren't convinced? Look how Candice Olson can rock a classic knob....
I think the dark counters with the dark knobs are good choice.
On a very limited budget, we selected this hardware on these gray cabinets for
a model home and they worked out great.
We'd love to have your input so feel free to share your favorites (on a selling budget of course)
happy selling !!
