High-Contrast Color Palettes


When redesigning your restaurant, consider using high-contrast color palettes. Perhaps the most dramatic color contrast is a black and white palette. However, this color combination is sometimes avoided in restaurants for fear of making the space seem smaller. The key to utilizing the stark differences between theses colors correctly is pairing the right accessories to go along with the look.

Black and white contrast keeps the space looking sleek, clean, and effortless. Pairing these contrasting colors with the right bold or colorful tableware can make your design pop even more. To bring the space alive, choose an accent color you wish to highlight, like a bright green, yellow, or orange. Unlike neutral colors, bold or bright colored accent pieces give the space a definitive personality. Choosing the right accent color can transform the entire feel of your restaurant without blowing your budget.

If you think the traditional black and white color contrast is too harsh, considered starting your restaurant redesign with a more subdued contrast palette. Popular alternatives includes swapping out black for other choices, such as deep eggplant or slate gray, and pairing them with varying shades of white. With a little creativity, you can play with the contrasting color palette for your restaurant to showcase your design skills and make a lasting impression on your customers.
