Much is made of how many cafés and restaurants “fail” and are forced to close, but it is also worth looking at the other end of the spectrum. Bob Chinn’s Crab House in Chicago, Illinois, is America’s most profitable stand-alone restaurant, earning annual profits of $24 million. This shows why so many people are willing to take a chance and open a café or restaurant.
While the success of Bob Chinn’s and other profitable restaurants is due to the quality of the food, the décor is another critical factor. Below, we look at the areas of a café and restaurant that are commonly painted and give tips on the best colors.

Exterior

No matter how good your food is, customers won’t even walk in the door if they don’t like how your premises look from the outside. According to experts in color psychology, red and yellow are the best colors to stimulate the appetite and are an especially good choice if you want your restaurant or café to be seen as the place to go for a guilty treat.

More upscale establishments may wish to emit a feeling of elegance, and colors like maroon and forest green are ideal for that. We would advise against having too many different colors, as this can be confusing to the eye and become a major turn-off. Colors such as black, purple, and blue are also deemed to be unappetizing; you should also be careful when using white, as too much of it makes the place look dull.

Bathroom

In our experience, the bathroom is one of the most overlooked areas of any café or restaurant. Spend what you like on advertising, but nothing beats a good customer experience. Few things are less appealing than enjoying a nice meal and being impressed with the décor in the restaurant or café only to go to the bathroom and find a mess.

Too many businesses make the mistake of amateurishly painting their bathrooms and allowing them to look like dank public facilities. Instead, you need to hire a professional contractor to brighten up the place. The right lighting is also crucial, and when you have this combination, a trip to the bathroom will be a pleasant experience. Customers can be won and lost on the quality of your bathroom!

Main Area

While red is acceptable on the exterior, it is a no-no when it comes to interior décor. According to color experts, red increases blood pressure, heart rate, and stimulates appetite. This means it works well for fast food places but not restaurants and cafés, where customer relaxation and enjoyment is encouraged.

Orange and yellow hues give customers a stronger sense of attachment to your business and promote positive reactions. If you want customers to indulge in a tasteful treat now and again, these colors are ideal, as they make customers feel happy and less guilty about enjoying themselves. We would recommend avoiding the color blue, as it stimulates thirst more than hunger. As an aside, this makes it a great color for a bar.

Staying on Top

If you want to stay on top in the restaurant or café business, choosing a high-quality professional commercial painting contractor is key. At CBP, we not only use the best materials for the job, we also offer advice on what suits your business.
