Orange isn’t the top color consideration for most people’s interior design color schemes, but when used selectively, it can be a very effective color.
We have a series of “orange room” galleries that feature specific rooms with an orange bent. Some have lots of orange (I’m not so keen on those) while others use orange as an accent color. Below you can check out our orange room galleries – kitchens, living rooms, bathrooms, bedrooms, home offices and foyers.
Orange Color Chart
We kick off this post with a simple orange shades color chart to give you an idea as to the various shades of orange you can consider. There are far more orange shades than this, but the chart gives you an idea as to the spectrum.
Orange Trends for Interior Design
Below is a chart that shows the online search trend for various orange rooms. As you can see it’s pretty stable which is to be expected. This is not a color scheme you’d expect to explode in popularity.
Orange Interior Color Examples
1. Orange Kitchens
There are many kitchen styles in which you can add orange. Tropical kitchens would especially work well with an orange palette as it is one of the colors found in exotic tropical birds and flowers. However, orange would also work well in modern or eclectic kitchen designs as they both include some man-made materials, like Formica or vinyl in orange tones. If you’re looking for a bright color to liven up your home, then orange may be a good color choice for you. Along with its bright hues, it is also available in muted and darker orange tones, like peach or pumpkin orange, which can be incorporated in your kitchen.

2. Orange Dining Rooms
An orange dining room might not be your first choice. Less than 2 percent of home use it as the main color scheme. But it brings a lot of possibilities to the table. Shades range the yellow-like amber to the rich persimmon to the deep mahogany—and everything in between. Each one brings its own mood and energy to space. Orange is one of the few hues that have positive associations all over the world. It is primarily a warm color, though there are some cooler shades along the spectrum. It’s an excellent choice for a room with a northern exposure that may not get a lot of sunlight. You can turn up the heat as much as you want, depending on the shade.
