Black and orange color, this is a very bold and bright combination, allowing to create original fashionable interiors. If for decoration of a bedroom or a drawing room the black-orange scale will be slightly superfluous, for kitchen it is ideal.
The advantages of this combination are non-triviality and relevance, a favorable effect on the mood of a person. Juicy orange shades look even brighter and more attractive on a black background.
Options for designing black and orange cuisine
If you chose this color scheme for the design of your kitchen, consider how you will apply it. It is important to decide initially whether the surfaces of furniture and finishes are predominantly glossy or matt, how intense the main orange tint should be, what color should be produced more - orange or black. For an example below, there are several options for designing a bright kitchen.
Orange headset, black top
The simplest and most practical option. This is the case when the black in the interior will be much smaller than the orange one. The set of orange color can now be bought ready-made. But if you want in some special shade of orange, then kitchen furniture will have to be ordered.
The top of the black color can be as practical and convenient as possible, and can turn out to be incredibly whimsical and difficult to care for. Here everything depends on the type of surface. On an ideally smooth monophonic surface, all the stains and dust particles are visible.
The tabletop of this type looks very impressive, but it must be constantly cleaned and rubbed. But tables with a discreet drawing under a natural stone or wood look clean and neat even after a simple rubbing sponge. Now you can order a black table-top with original impregnations of a different color.
Let's say you have already picked up a black countertop and an orange set. What should be the finishing of walls, floor and ceiling in this case? In order not to get an excess of color, it is better to make a bright, soft finish. The walls can be matte peach tinge. A white color is suitable for a ceiling, and for a floor - a marble black.
Another simple option - decorate the entire kitchen in different shades of orange, and emphasize this composition with a black apron. The apron, if made expressive enough, will be an excellent accent in the design of the kitchen.
The apron is located above the working surface. It often has to be laundered from kitchen mud, besides it adjoins to a plate and a sink. Therefore, it must be made of a durable, moisture-resistant and heat-resistant material. And, again, it should be "non-mark", that is, with a pattern or a relief texture.
The apron can be made of the following materials:
- ceramic tile;
- facing brick;
- artificial or natural stone;
- Wall-papers, closed by glass;
- glass panels with printing.
For the picture colors that are in harmony with orange - gray white, all shades of orange are suitable. The most economical option is ceramic tiles with impregnations of a different color. The most expensive are the glass panels with the application of photo printing.
Black bottom, orange top
Now very popular two-color sets that give the kitchen a modern and stylish look. Division of the room horizontally with color is actively used today by leading designers.
If you want, you can do the opposite, and paint black on the top of the kitchen. But in this case the interior can turn out too "pressing".
In this version, the bottom floor cabinets of the headset have orange facades, and the top ones are painted in orange. The integrity of the kit is maintained due to the same hardware. The worktop, as a border element, can be any harmonically fitting color. It can be black, orange, gray or white.
Finishing the walls, floor and ceiling can support the division of the kitchen on the black bottom and orange top. But as a result, the interior probably will get too much black, so dining furniture (a dining table and chairs) is better to choose light colors.
Interior composition of two colors will become even more self-sufficient, if it is slightly diluted by other shades. The choice of additional shades depends on what effect we are trying to achieve, whether we want to increase the contrast of black and orange or smooth it, whether it is necessary to make the kitchen more sunny, or glamorous-shocking, etc.
With a combination of black and bright orange, the interior is often somewhat heavy in perception. In that there is nothing to worry about if you spend very little time in the kitchen. But for a long pastime the atmosphere should be light enough. We add decor elements or white finish, and the kitchen interior becomes much more comfortable.
A white element can be a ceiling, a dining table, curtains, one wall, a table top, a set of household appliances or a tableware. If the base orange is not very bright, the decor will be quite cozy and without white impregnations.
In the case where the kitchen is made in a modern ultramodern style, with glossy surfaces, with a minimal amount of decor elements, instead of white for diluting the black and orange scale, it is better to choose gray. It should be a light metallic or mouse shade.
Add a gray color in different ways. Black countertops with gray veins get the appearance of expensive surfaces made of natural stone. The same streaks will make the apron less of a keramoplitka less marked.
The easiest way to lead to the interior of the kitchen is gray - this is a set of household appliances in metallic colors.
Brown цвет станет переходным от черного к оранжевому. Поэтому, если вы не боитесь переизбытка темных оттенков, можете смело использовать этот цвет в интерьере. Применение коричневых оттенков в качестве дополнительных, позволяет упростить процесс оформления кухни, так как в ней автоматически становятся уместными все детали натурального древесного цвета.
Style of black and orange cuisine
This combination of colors does not limit us in the choice of style. However, in the traditional classics it is not easy to apply it. Only if you take a completely faded orange and a minimum of black, but the opportunities for a bright color contrast are lost. Therefore, it is better to make black-orange cuisine in the style of high-tech or glossy modern.
Creating a kitchen in the style of Art Nouveau or high-tech, the main color accent should be the working area of the kitchen, which includes a set, countertop, apron, household appliances. All other elements - walls, floor, ceiling, dining area, this is a background, designed to emphasize the chosen stylistic direction.
A spacious kitchen can be made in any of the ethnic European or African styles.
For this, a deep orange color is chosen, in which wooden furniture is painted. The walls are a tone or two lighter. The floor is wooden - dark brown or black. The apron and the table top are black. Making a small kitchen in this way will lead to a visual narrowing of the space of the room, and the kitchen will turn out to be very close and not comfortable.
What should I avoid while designing a black and orange kitchen.
- With the additional decoration of the kitchen should not choose bright color accents of warm colors - red, raspberry, lemon. The fact is that the orange color is able to muffle any shade located on its background, and therefore instead of an accent we get an element that will "argue" with the background, creating disharmony in the interior. It is better to play on the contrast of warm-cold shade.
- Even in the boldest interior, you do not need to use a black ceiling. He will make the kitchen a room with a heavy depressive atmosphere. Do multi-level multi-colored ceiling is also not worth it, as the interior of the kitchen is already overloaded with a large number of parts due to its functional purpose.
- Large kitchens do not tolerate a clear division into the dark bottom and bright top or vice versa. In such cases, the interior looks dull and not original. To fix the situation is very simple - you need to dilute orange with black, and black with orange.
- When decorating a kitchen-dining room it is not advisable to make both zones in one color solution. It is better to separate the dining area with a bar counter or a difference in the height of the floor, and apply in it a different, calmer combination of colors.
- In studio apartment such bright, exciting variant of design of kitchen should not be used. But if you really want to, you need to think through a sliding screen that separates the "screaming" kitchen from a quiet living room.
