Hello! I am going to redo my mother's kitchen and she has cherry wood cabinets with a stain color that often looks orange. Everything in the kitchen is currently cream...the walls, floor, counters, appliances....all cream/beige.

I want to repaint the walls but am wondering what color I might use that would make the cabinets look less orange. She is not going to let me touch the cabinets so I have to work with them.

The house will be on the market within the next few years so I need to stay with a color that will have general appeal. I'm sure there are some colors that would accentuate the orange tint while there must be some that would downplay it.

Anyone know which is which? Thanks for all input!

There is a professional painters forum here somewhere. I suggest you post your question there.
My simple answer is from make-up tips: green tones down reds/oranges. But, hey, I'm not a professional.
Good luck.

Before you do anything, buy GE Reveal light bulbs. It might be the lighting that is making the cabinets look orange.

The other possibility is that the cabinets need a good cleaning.

Um, no, there isnt.
Maybe a thread, but not a forum.

Look at the date of this post my friends. You all been had by a 1 hit 1 post wonder who reopened this ancient thread. The OP's kitchen has long since turned from orange to purple with pink polka dots. And you can't paint cabinets either. Well you can but everyone would point and laugh.
