Use Colours for Your Restaurant to Make Diners Hungry

The colours of your restaurant certainly has a strong impact on determining your customers dining experience. This, in turn, determines the brand image of your restaurant. Does your restaurant provide more of a fine-dining experience? Or a fast-food experience? What about sustainable dining?

This article will help you decide which colours would be best for your restaurant and determining your brand image.

1. Warm Colours versus Cool Colours

Warm colours like red, yellow and orange increases a person’s appetite – so use that to your advantage in your own restaurant! Muted, earth tones of warm colours also creates a lush and expensive feel for your restaurant. 


Yellow can become really obnoxious if it is too gaudy or bright. So try to aim for muted tone as well. But if you are opening a fast-food restaurant, this colour may be perfect for you as it encourages high turn over rates!

Cool colours, however, are rarely used. This is because blue and purple are not natural food colours and hence they ruin customer’s appetites most of the time. 
The only cool colour I would recommend is green. As with the other colours, muted green is perfect for eco-friendly restaurants or vegan and vegeterian establishments. This gives the whole place an atmosphere of being healthier than usual and will attract the right crowd to its doors.

2. Neutral Colours
