The colors that you use to decorate your foodservice establishment have a huge impact on your customers, how long they spend in your operation, and how they feel. Colors can make your customers happy, boost their appetite, increase table turnover, and make your dining space seem more spacious. But, they can also have a negative affect on your customers, so it’s important to understand how your interior color choices affect your restaurant’s message. To do this, you first need to understand the psychology of colors and then learn how colors go together into a pleasing and complementary color scheme.

Color Effect Establishments That Use This Color Red Red increases your guests’ heart rates and can make them hungry. It can also make your guests eat quickly and leave, which is useful for increasing your table turnover rate.
Fast food restaurants, fast casual restaurants, establishments that want a high table turnover Orange Orange makes people feel happy and cheerful. It’s also excellent for establishments that serve desserts or unhealthy food because it makes people content and less likely to feel guilty for eating poorly.
Fast food restaurants, ice cream shops, casual eateries Yellow Some shades of bright yellow have a similar impact as orange, making people happy and content. Generally, yellow is very vibrant and exciting, so it’s not an ideal choice for relaxed environments.
Fast casual restaurants, ethnic eateries, bistros, cafes Green Earthy tones like green are very relaxing and comforting. Green is found commonly in nature, making it an excellent choice for establishments that serve healthy and natural foods.
Health food stores, salad bars, vegetarian and vegan restaurants Brown Brown is an earthy color that helps guests relax and feel comfortable. It can also give customers a sense of support and stability, and it can even convince guests to come back as repeat customers.
Coffee shops, bistros, contemporary restaurants, bars Blue Blue is a color that most restaurants should avoid. It’s not commonly found naturally in food, and it can cause your customers to lose their appetites.
Additionally, if you have bright blue walls, the shade of blue can reflect onto your food and make it look less appetizing. Blue reduces customers’ appetites, but it makes them thirsty. Bars, coffee shops, cafes, nightclubs, seaside restaurants White This color gives your space a relaxed and leisurely feel.
White can also make your dining area look clean, and it can make a small space seem larger. But, too much white can make your dining area look sterile. Small restaurants and bistros, upscale eateries, banquet halls, wedding venues Black You can use black strategically to make the other colors in your restaurant pop and look more vibrant, but too much black can make your space look cramped and dark.

HGTV fan dezignrogue makes a good thing even better by adding an assortment of pumpkins, gourds and colorful mums to their Italiante villa’s front entry. A wrought-iron bench is a nice addition and gives the outdoor room a sit-a-spell feel.
Deep emerald isn’t going anywhere. “This bluegrass green is on the floors of Monticello — and at my 1688 country home,” says designer Jeffrey Bilhuber. “It’s a color steeped in history, but also of the moment. To me, that’s perfection.”
Variegated croton in saturated shades of green, gold and red surrounded by vibrant mums and pumpkins give HGTV fan gdiveris’ front entry a colorful fall pick-me-up.

Choosing a restaurant color scheme is very important because the shades you use to decorate your business can have a big effect on your customers. To choose the ideal color scheme, you should think about what kind of experience you want your customers to have in your restaurant. Additionally, for modern establishments, you may want to consider the types of decor and color schemes that are popular. But, regardless of what colors you use in your operation, you should make sure that they are true to your purpose.
Warm colors are very exciting and bright, and they provide a lot of visual stimulation for your guests. But, because these colors are so bright, they can become irritating after a long period of time. This helps to increase your turnover rate, which makes warm color schemes ideal for high-volume establishments like fast causal eateries, buffets, or fast food restaurants. But, because warm color schemes can be overwhelming, you don’t want to overdo it.
Another color that proves bold is back is this dramatic purple, according to designer Francesco Bilotto. “You’ll see this tone showcased everywhere from kitchen cabinets to foyers,” he says. Designer Pat Healing opted to use this shade to create a statement on this New York dining room door.

Sometimes style wins out over comfort when selecting dining chairs. With Thanksgiving (and then Christmas) entertaining on the horizon, fall is a great time to tackle that uncomfortable chair issue once and for all by adding a comfy pad and coordinating pillow.

If your seats are an unusual size, DIY or having them custom-made are your best bets.

Don’t limit bright colors to spring and summer, fall’s hues can be playful too — rely on Mother Nature’s shifting shades to help you pick your palette. Try a splash of pumpkin orange, mellowed gourd green or the saturated blue evident in fall’s clear skies.
