Zesty orange is one of those colors that you either love or hate. Or love to hate. Not I. If the room's done right, that is.
All of these images with orange kitchen decor use the color sparingly, in clean, bright spaces. Also, the touches don't require huge investments, other than the orange oven. Let's have a look at how you can add orange accents to the kitchen, using pendant lighting, backsplash, floor tiles, and even just dishware.

While an industrial-style orange range is surely a hefty investment, running a line of orange glass as a backsplash is an accessible way to make a colorful statement in an otherwise white kitchen. Image: Zinc Concepts.

A mid-century modern style white kitchen with some wood cabinets here and there gets a lift with orange cups and bowls. They could even consider removing the cabinet doors to show off the zesty orange kitchen decor within. Image: James Braund.

Love the color combination. I have seen orange colors in kitchen for the first time .
But it looks ravishing.
Limestone countertop would go with this color.
