the kind of color depends on the type of restaurant you would have. if it's a fast food restaurant, then bright colors would do because studies show that bright colors get you going. we have a fast food chain in the Phils which usually has a lot of customer and its color is orange. people do not linger on at the restaurant after eating. however, if you want to have a restaurant which caters to couples or intimate dates, i suggest you go for asian (dark wood) color. hope this helps!

I've heard the color red stimulates you and your appetite so that's why a lot of fast food restaurants use it in their decor. They say it can be good to stimulate conversation also. Blue and green are supposed to relax you.

Colors are more thana combination of red, blue,yellow anf black. They are non verbal forms of communication. Colors have symbolism and meaning that go beyond ink. It is helpful to keep in mind how the eye and mind perceive certain colors and the meanings behind these colors. Sometimes colors create a physical reaction. Red for instance has been know to raise blood pressure. The color white in the US is for weddings but in some Eastern cultures white is the color for mourning. Colors also follow trends. Cool colors like blue, green, turquoise and silver are calming colors. Warm colors like reds, pink, yellow, gold and orange are exciting colors. Were Neutral colors like brown, beige, Ivory, gray, black and white are unifying colors. So definitly a lot to consider I would definitly look in to cultural colors what type of restraunt. Is it a theme restraunt. The amount of space, because you definilty dont want to make people feel like they are eatting in a box, and you definitly do not want to paint a color that could be unsettling. Also keep in mind men and women do not perceive color the same. Hopefully this offers a little assistance. I personally like a combination of unifying and warm colors burgundy, golds, black and taupe I love it. The colours make me feel relaxed and comfortable when combined corretly.
