Colors That Match Orange Walls

One way to give your space a splash of orange is to paint an accent wall. If bright orange is too intimidating, try light orange kitchen walls. A peach or a soft yellow-orange is perfect for refreshing your interior without overwhelming it. Add hints of green throughout your space for natural contrast. Light orange also pairs well with blue and brown.

Modern Kitchen Décor Tips

If you want to stray away from a retro, 70’s inspired orange look, try by pairing your orange décor with minimal aesthetic. ElephantStock's interior design expert Elimar Lobo Sáenz shares her tips for maintaining a modern kitchen:

“The first step when redecorating your kitchen is to go over the current contemporary style trends. Contemporary style is known for blending both aesthetics and functionality in equal measure. Make sure to highlight strong and sleek forms, use minimal accessories, and keep a wide, open space.

You can also consider the following trends:

-A simple, geometric space: From furniture to architectural details, balance the look of harsh, clean lines with few curves (like circular patterns or cylindrical furniture.)

-Keep it clean: Keep accessories simple, few, and well-chosen. Cooking spaces without visuals obstacles and clutter are key."

Orange Kitchen Wall Décor: Shapes

Another way to add orange to your kitchen is through wall art. Determine the best orange canvas shape for space using our layout guide:

The clean, classic option: 1-Piece Canvas

The trendy two-piece print: 2-Piece Split Canvas

The modern multi-panel canvas: 3 to 5-Piece Multi-Panel Canvas

The exciting, eclectic choice: 7-Piece Hexagonal Canvas

No matter which layout you choose, apply this expert tip when hanging your print:

“Make sure to leave enough room in between the edge of the wall and your artwork. There should be at least a foot from where the wall ends, before your wall art begins. Hanging your canvas too close to the edge of the wall can instantly make a space look cramped and disproportionate. Your interior should look welcoming, so it’s important to avoid an unsettling, unbalanced layout.”

Kitchen Wall Art: Size Guide

If you’re leaning towards orange wall art, you also have to consider the right dimensions to suit your kitchen wall. Follow these tricks from our Ultimate Wall Art Size Guide:

“Your wall art should take up about 60% to 75% of the empty wall space; in other words, the portion not covered by moldings or furniture. The first step is to measure the height and width of the wall. Then, multiply the measurements by both 0.6 and 0.75. As a result, you will get the best range of canvas sizes to suit your unique wall.

Wall art that you want to hang over a countertop or sink should be between 2/3 and 3/4 of the furniture's width. To measure the ideal art size above a surface, consider this example: If your counter is 6 feet wide, multiply it by 0.66 and 0.75.

Large wall art that measures 36 inches by 75 inches in height and width can create a polished, classic look in a narrow space or galley kitchen. This wall art size works well in hallways as well as in-between appliances.

Orange Shabby Chic Wall Art Styles

Now that you have some modern orange décor ideas to consider, it’s time to flip the script! If you’re more of a traditionalist, consider a rustic take on kitchen décor. Shabby-chic is a trend that never goes out of style, especially when it comes to kitchen design. Combine unfinished wood with perfectly imperfect finishes, and opt for vintage accessories.

Cozy Orange Décor Tips

Because fall is finally here, burnt orange is another trendy shade that works well in a cozy, shabby-chic space. Read this advice from our article on rust orange:

“The goal when decorating with warm hues is to make your space feel as cozy as possible. This makes rust orange the perfect color to use in the bedroom. Promote a sense of comfort and relaxation by using muted, rust orange hues. Hang a burnt orange painting above your kitchen counter to tie together the pop of orange among the neutral finishes. Use shades like beige, brown, and taupe to complement the burnt orange details.”
