Orange Kitchens: Orange is the warm color of sunsets, fall leaves, wood fires, pumpkins and citrus fruits. From light pale shades to hotter hues, orange calls for our attention in powerful ways. Orange kitchens mix fashion with flavor, and can make a variety of statements in a modern home.
Setting the Mood: As a cross between red and yellow, nothing quite says "fun loving" like an orange kitchen. Some people say that subconsciously, the color orange makes us feel more sociable, and also stimulates our appetite. Orange Chicken, anyone? How about tangerines, oranges, cantaloupe, carrots, peaches, apricots, cheddar cheese, and sweet potato fries? Perhaps we really are wired to feel hungry when orange is in the room. If you love to entertain and bring hungry people together in a fun-loving setting, an orange kitchen may be right for you.
Trends: Orange is generally considered trendy and modern, although I've seen many traditional kitchens with orange toned wood cabinets that recall more of a Tuscany kitchen feel. Orange can add a sense of sunshine, adventure, and warmth to the otherwise cold contemporary and modern styles. You'll find several pictures of kitchens featuring orange cabinets, as either the central color or as a contrasting accent in two-tone kitchens. If you're looking for orange-toned wood cabinets, look for "Golden Brown" wood cabinets in the main kitchen photo gallery.
Orange Kitchens - Everyday Use: Orange cabinets require a moderate level of care and attention. Since dark stains and smudges stand out visually on a light surface, bright or light orange kitchen cabinets may require more frequent gentle cleaning and dusting than mid-toned cabinets. Knowing what to expect in advance can pay off with a lifetime of enjoyment in your modern orange kitchen.
