Be Bold, Go Orange

Don’t be afraid of orange. In Honor of Halloween, we want you to consider some design ideas for orange.

Back To School Parent IdeasOrange may not be your first choice when designing your kitchen, but it actually is a great color that can brighten your kitchen.

There are a variety of ways to incorporate orange into your kitchen. Think about citrus hues and terracottas. Orange is fun and energizing. But, be careful when using it because depending upon the hue you choose, it will become a focal point. Therefore, consider combining your orange with neutral accents.

You may not want your entire kitchen to be orange. Think about adding it to a backsplash, single accent wall in the kitchen, cabinets, or even a pantry door. Accent your orange paint with additional orange items like am orange light fixture, orange vase accessory, or even orange barstools. It is important to pair your orange color with other colors that complement each other. Blue is the color on that is opposite on the color wheel than orange. A light or even a dark blue will complement your orange. If that is too bold, consider grays and whites with your orange accents.

Paint is one of the easiest and the most inexpensive ways to convert a dull boring room into a designer chic room. If you do not like it or it gets old, simply re-paint it in different colors. 
Some good shades of orange for kitchens include Sweet Orange and Honey Bell by Benjamin Moore, but try painting a few different shades of orange on your wall to find the best color for your space.
