Tips for Choosing Restaurant Linen Colors

January 22, 2020 | Hospitality

The first impression you have with a restaurant is the atmosphere. It’s the table arrangements, place settings, and linens, and it can say a lot about the restaurant. Below are a few tips on how to choose the best linen colors for your establishment.

Know Your Theme and Purpose

Are you a casual café or more of an upscale dining establishment? Your vibe and atmosphere can be defined by the colors of linens that you choose. If you are more casual, you can play with colors and different patterns. The type of cuisine can make an impact on table linens as well. Are you a homegrown, farm-to-table restaurant? Try earth colors, like greens, tans, and blues. These colors are calm and contemporary, setting up the restaurant atmosphere.

If you are going for more of an upscale dining experience, try crisp white tablecloths. To add a pop of color to your arrangement, choose colored napkins, like red for an elegant feel, or black for a strong contrast.



Play with Color Schemes and Complementary Colors

Another way to experiment with color is by setting a color scheme for your entire restaurant. You have the opportunity to coordinate your table setting with the overall décor of your space. Perhaps you want your table linens to match your restaurant logo. This can help with the color association for your restaurant and leave a lasting impression on customers.

The use of complementary colors can help leverage your restaurant and make your customers feel excited about their dining experience.

Be Creative and Have Fun

There are so many options and varieties when it comes to choosing your table linens. Rather than treating your linens solely as a functional necessity, allow your choices to add another layer of interest or elegance to your space as a whole. It’s an easy way to add a pop of color or pattern to your table setting. Take control of the place settings, color schemes and the overall atmosphere of your restaurant or establishment.
