Orange is one of the most neglected colors on the spectrum when it comes to home decor. While it's a beautiful hue, it doesn't feature as prominently in people's homes as blue or green, or even it's neighboring shades of yellow and red.
But there are still plenty of brave individuals who have made orange the prominent color (or at very least, the loudest accent color) in their kitchens. Here are eight examples of orange done well in the kitchen.
- Glossy Cabinets & Counter - Mark English Architects: Colorful cabinets are an easy way to add a color quickly, and the high-gloss finish makes these feel very contemporary.
- Fridge & Backsplash - Kingston Design Remodeling: We're guessing the Smeg refrigerator was the inspiration for this orange-accented kitchen. The backsplash is a matching hue, and there are multiple orange accents scattered throughout.
- Counters & Accents - Kropat Interior Design: We love this kitchen for the way all the orange accents — the chairs, the lighting, and even some of the glassware — tie it all together.
- Accent Wall - Maven: The accent wall in this kitchen keeps the space from feeling too bland; the orange barstools and Dutch oven are the perfect coordinating pieces.
- Yellow-Orange Upper Cabinets - Scott Weston Architecture Design: With a slightly lighter shade of orange, this kitchen feels sunny and bright. What's not shown from this angle is that the yellow-orange color continues on the adjacent wall.
- Backsplash & Chairs - Sarah Greenman Photography: This simple kitchen is made more lively by the glossy orange backsplash above the stove and the coordinating orange chairs at the head of the table. It's just enough color to keep things fun without overwhelming the space.
- Color Block Cabinets - George Robinson Kitchens: The retro fridge and color-block panels of this kitchen give it a distinctly 1970s vibe that we love. Plus, the slate-blue shade it's paired with is the perfect complement.
- Bar Stools - Sarah Greenman Photography: Despite the way they appear in this photo, the accent cabinet fronts are wooden, but the other orange accents — like the bright Eames-style barstools — make them seem as though they have an orange tint.
