Ah yes, orange oak cabinets! On the plus side, oak is solid and durable and will last you decades...unfortunately, the finish will not. Over the years, the oil sealer starts to craze, crack and yellow over time...hence the glowing orange. If the original set up is still functional, then refinishing is always an option. You can also give it a more substantial look by adding trim and base board around the island and cabinets. Check out some of my past projects and get inspired to do it yourself...or just hire me.
There's still hope!
