If you're looking for kitchen color ideas that, in the words of the Spice Girls, will add a little zigazig-ah to your abode, orange could be the way to go. Representing success, health, and happiness, this vibrant hue promotes well-being and productivity, but isn't for the faint of heart. Even tangerine decor might be a bit too much for some. But don't worry, we're here to help you navigate these vivid waters. Scroll on for eight orange kitchen ideas that will encourage you to give the warm shade a try.
1. Go natural with terra cotta.
Designer Justina Blakeney chose a lime wash paint in a terra cotta orange for her boho kitchen design — the plant pot shade is the perfect ode to her love of greenery. Blakeney completed the look with an orange patterned tile backsplash and purple and blue accents throughout. A lesson in being bold.
2. Freshen up your island.
3. Embrace your eclectic personality.
While blue is a complementary color to orange, we think green works just as well for a bright and eclectic kitchen color idea, but you need to be careful not to go overboard. This cook space is a perfect example; the pop of orange is balanced by white walls and open shelving to keep it from overpowering the entire design.
4. Incorporate orange kitchen accents.
5. Go all out.
If limiting yourself to a pop of color isn't really your thing, then by all means, don't stop with orange. Kim of @colorful_kimmes has decorated her eclectic boho kitchen in teal, green, pink, and pretty much every other color in the rainbow. It's not everyone's cup of tea, but we can't help but smile every time we look at this playful design.
6. Add a citrus touch.
Forget what anyone told you about keeping your cook space neutral. Elevate your kitchen color idea with a vibrant shade of orange by painting the door of your pantry closet like this situ by Harvey Jones Kitchens. Beautiful to look at and practical to use, this zesty hue is the perfect way to brighten your morning.
