I've found CV to be more durable- lacquer can scratch rather easily.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

2) Think about making a statement with high gloss orange. Everything else takes a backseat to the orange in this kitchen.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Inspiring Updates for Getaway Places
Use color to add an element of surprise in a vacation home. Orange cabinetry energizes this kitchen and brings a spirit of fun to the space.
Try orange for a contemporary kitchen that indulges in a taste of retro.
Neon. Neon is the name of the game for you fearless color lovers out there. Here's your chance to use yellow, orange, red, blue and green at the same time, as Marie Claire notes. If you don't want do make it the focal point as in this kitchen, frame a jazzy piece of fabric you love, make a unique seat for a stool or a piano bench — the world is your oyster when it comes to injecting a little pizzazz.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Kitchen Workbook: Planning Your Remodel's Scope of Work
A designer, architect or contractor you like and trust can help you develop your scope of work and be realistic about what your budget can achieve. Keep in mind there's usually not one right answer, so getting a few opinions is a good idea.
If you don't like the way the TTDs look from the inside, you can always recess part of the ceiling and then install multiple ones, so that they go fairly unnoticed.Tell us: If you could install a tubular daylighting device in one room of your house, which would it be?More:Expert Lighting Design SecretsGet the Lighting Right: 8 Mistakes to Avoid12 Ways to Light Your Kitchen With LEDs
Lawrence Karol added this to Expert Panel: Kitchen Color
The warmth of orange. It's a pretty bold choice for a kitchen, but when you hear architect Mark English talk about this room's color palette, it makes perfect sense: "The home is sited on a hill with a 270-degree, long-distance view toward the east and northeast. The color of the light coming into the house tends toward gray and bluish tones, so the orange was used to counteract the coolness of those tones. The island and upper cabinets are 'pieces' that can be seen from adjacent rooms, and I wanted to highlight them. The regular base cabinets and full-height cabinets are meant to be background elements."
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Charcoal Gray
Charcoal with citrus: The warm gray sets off this bright orange, making it stand out even more.
Lisa Frederick added this to Mango: Orange for the Rest of Us
If you're ready to take the full plunge into orange, this kitchen represents one way to go there without overdoing it. The mango hue of the cabinetry certainly isn't for shrinking violets, but it's not as loud as tangerine or safety-cone orange would be.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to Treat Your Rooms to Pumpkin Pie Orange
Pumpkin cabinets in the kitchen? Yes, please, I'll have a slice. Pumpkin is a cousin of red, which is known to stimulate the appetite. This particular shade of pumpkin pairs beautifully with one wall of gray cabinets.
Stoke kitchen creativity. June McLeod, color expert with Colors of the Soul, says orange stokes health and creativity. People who like orange are often people pleasers and love to share. This combination would make an orange kitchen a great place for conjuring up a feast for friends.However, McLeod has conducted research on how people behave in different colored kitchens, and warns to be careful with the color: "In orange kitchens people are more prone to be slapdash," she says, "so if you decide on an orange theme, you need to make an effort to be organized in order to prevent disaster."
