Orange interiors offer visual excitement and a positive appearance in equal measure.

As a strong colour choice, orange can look warm and deep whether it is painted on walls or used as a trim.

Providing a great deal of versatility, our extensive range of orange paint colours provides different moods, textures and tonal qualities. Whether you want a funky wall or ceiling paint for a teenager's bedroom, would like to make your living room feel warm or you simply enjoy bright tones in your workspace, consider painting with orange tones.

All Orange Paint Colours

Orange is a bold colour choice. Don't forget how rich and exciting orange can be when it is used to create a feature wall, for example. That said, orange paint needn't always be about creating a sense of drama. Burnt orange often looks good against subtle grey or off-white tones, for instance.

From warming terracotta to deep rust tones, orange works well in all light conditions and can create an almost instant sense of identity in a room whether it is a wall or ceiling paint. Find out more about painting with orange shades and why doing so might mean striking gold in your home.

There again, Coral Silk is another remarkably attractive light orange tone. It has a bright, autumnal orange kind of feel with a touch of spicy pumpkin. This paint would be a good one to choose if you have dark wood on view in your room, such as parquet flooring, for instance.

With a brown undertone, Ginger Shortbread is an alluring colour. Use it as ceiling paint or on your walls if you want to add warmth and create an inviting ambience in your room.
