What Houzz contributors are saying:
Find Statement PiecesOrange may feel like too bold a choice for some homeowners, but Brown says she’s found that even clients who are hesitant to use orange usually come to appreciate the statement-making shade once they see it next to other colors in the finished product. “It takes a client who loves color and wants some bold accents,” she says. If you’re going to go bold with a few select pieces, it’s smart to choose ones that will make the most impact. In this case, the homeowners of this Washington, D.C.-area kitchen opted for a retro-cool orange Big Chill Slim refrigerator. Instead of stopping there, the team at Kingston Design Remodeling anchored the whole room in orange by using the hue above the custom stained concrete countertops as well.
3. Pop of color. Adding a tile backsplash with a pop of color behind the sink is a great way to brighten up a windowless kitchen — especially when the refrigerator echoes the color of the tile, as shown in this photo.
Retro source: Big Chill makes a full range of retro appliances (like the fridge shown here) in a rainbow of colorful hues. Choose from refrigerators, stoves, microwaves, wall ovens and even dishwashers in a range of sizes.
OrangeLike red, orange grabs the attention right away and is best used on great features that should be exaggerated. Be careful when playing with light tones, though — sometimes orange can feel like a pastel, so look for oranges with yellow or brown in them if you want something that isn't too vibrant.
