Our Best Orange Kitchen Ideas

Orange is warm, energizing and thought to stimulate the appetite, making it a perfect color choice for the kitchen. Incorporating this vibrant hue into the heart of your home can feel intimidating, but we’ve got expert tips to help you pull it off.

If you want to start small, consider painting an orange accent wall in your kitchen. You can also subtly add color to your kitchen with accessories like rugs, window treatments and light fixtures.

If you’re ready to make a bigger commitment, consider choosing orange kitchen countertops, cabinets or appliances. This space by designer Kate Maloney pairs burnt orange lower cabinets with white upper cabinets and a complementary teal island. Coupling orange with neutrals like white, beige or gray is a great way to offset the intensity of the color.
