Why Paint Your Home Orange?


If you’re looking to add a pop of colour to your home, consider painting it orange. This vibrant hue can brighten up a space, and there are plenty of different shades to choose from so you can find the perfect one for your home. This blog post will give you tips on painting orange and share some examples of homes that have rocked this colour. So read on to learn more!

Origin of Orange as a Colour 

The colour orange was known as “geoluhread” in Old English, which means “yellow-red.” The term “orange” was coined after the eponymous fruit was introduced to English via the Spanish word naranja, derived from the Sanskrit word nāraṅga. Orange is associated with energy, enthusiasm, and balance.

In business, the colour orange conveys that something is inexpensive but of reasonable quality. Orange branding works well for companies that want to express stellar customer service on a budget because it also reflects sociability and warmth.

From a psychological standpoint, orange is an intensely supportive colour, and the same can be said when using shades of orange in our homes. With its optimistic and uplifting nature, orange uplifts our spirits, encourages activity, and stimulates our appetite. Orange encourages spontaneity and a positive attitude, casting a warm glow on the bright side of life.

Painting Orange to your Home

Orange Walls

Choosing a paint colour can be stressful, and it isn’t easy to know if you’ve chosen the right colour for your walls. Make things easier on yourself by consulting with an experienced, professional painter who can provide excellent advice on how to paint your walls orange. 

You can also buy a small can of paint in the desired colour and test it out on the wall or a poster board. Please keep it on or near the wall for a few days to see how you like it. However, remember that too much of any bright orange colour can cause overstimulation, resulting in the opposite of the desired relaxation and comfort.

How Other People have Used Orange in their Homes 


Painting your walls orange may appear to be a risky choice, but it can work out incredibly well when the right shade is combined with the right room. Orange could work well in a living room or other high-traffic area, instantly making it appear more inviting.

The colour burnt orange is frequently used to convey warmth. When used in a lighter shade, orange can even add a sense of coziness to a room. A lighter, more citrusy shade of orange can also work well as a wall, especially when combined with gray or more neutral coloured chairs and other furniture.

Kitchen and Dining Room

Some orange can help modernize the aesthetic of a kitchen, especially when used sparingly, like to colour the island or spruce up a cabinet. Although the orange is generally not meant to dominate the kitchen space, it can become a focal point in the room.

Orange paint on the walls of a dining room is said to stimulate the appetite and promote feelings of excitement; what a fun way to eat! If you consider orange for the kitchen walls, you will most likely have a fresh and crisp-themed kitchen. Brownish oranges are popular in dens and kitchens because they evoke feelings of warmth and coziness. 

Living Room and Bedroom

Accents are a great way to add a splash of orange to a room without fully committing to the colour’s brightness. The orange will add a splash of colour and warmth to otherwise plain areas of your home, such as a living room couch or a bedroom.

Orange accents, such as a few throw pillows or even a comforter, work well with a lighter coloured bedspread. Orange accents will fit wherever you decide there is a need for colour, bringing colour and warmth.

Orange and brown may appear to be an unlikely combination, but the results can be soothing when used sparingly, such as an accent pillow on a brown sofa. The brown sofa may appear stale and muted, but a splash of colour helps it reach its full potential.


Orange paint comes in various shades, just like any other paint colour. Because peachy oranges are more delicate, they are frequently used in bathrooms.

The same can be said for orange and grey, a colour combination that looks good in almost any home. If you’re not sure how to use orange in your home, this is one of the most secure and stylish options.
