Elements ◦ Space ◦ Line ◦ Color ◦ Shape / form ◦ Texture ◦ Value Principles ◦ Contrast ◦ Rhythm ◦ Unity ◦ Balance ◦ Pattern ◦ Movement
Red ◦ The most emotionally intense color ◦ Stimulates appetite ◦ Because of intensity most often used only as an accent ◦ Used for holidays centered around love (although pink is more accurate for this psychologically) White ◦ Symbolizes innocence and purity ◦ Used to project the absence of color, or neutrality ◦ Healthcare professionals wear white to imply sterility
Blue ◦ Instills feelings of calm & peacefulness ◦ Symbolizes loyalty ◦ Promotes productivity in business environment ◦ Has been shown to cause loss of appetite Green ◦ Symbolizes nature ◦ Current popularity due in part to our environmental concerns ◦ One of the easiest colors on the eye ◦ Often used for its calming effect
Yellow ◦ Sunny yellow is an Attention getter ◦ Enhances concentration in limited amounts ◦ can lead to irritation and loss of temper with prolonged exposure ◦ Increases metabolism Purple ◦ Symbolizes wealth, royalty & spirituality ◦ Known to promote restfulness & sleep ◦ since it is somewhat rare to find in nature it can appear exotic or artificial
Brown ◦ Evokes a sense of strength & reliability ◦ Symbolizes warmth, comfort & security ◦ Often described as natural & down-to-earth Orange ◦ Considered an energetic color ◦ Brings about feelings of excitement & enthusiasm ◦ Can cause intense irritability with prolonged exposure
Know your audience Choose colors and materials that enhance the mood you want to project in your facility Understand that every person will have a somewhat personal reaction to colors
Limited use of red and yellow to get attention Warm browns to create a sense of warmth and home Strong use of red to get attention and stimulate appetite
Use of light / bright colors to give the illusion of space Use of browns / wood tones to balance the light colors and create warmth Use of orange to grab attention Use of greens / blues to soothe effect of orange
Finish materials must be appropriate for this busy environment ◦ Safety for your staff and guests is of primary concern ◦ Extreme durability runs a close second ◦ Ease of maintenance is next on the list
FLOORING ◦ CARPET TILES VS ROLL CARPET ◦ WOOD LOOK VINYL VS REAL HARD WOOD ◦ CERAMIC OR PORCELAIN TILE ◦ QUARRY TILE VS EPOXY FLOORING
Ceiling Materials ◦ Cleanable surface for the food prep & serving areas ◦ Acoustic tiles for sound deadening ◦ Decorative tiles for warmth & style
Furnishings ◦ Layout of dining area to facilitate needs of your customers ◦ Table shape, size and materials ◦ Booth seating VS freestanding chairs ◦ Misc items – don’t overlook the need for trash & recycling receptacles to coordinate with design
Some “bang for your buck” items ◦ Appropriate materials and shapes for countertops ◦ Attention grabbing signage ◦ Lighting to enhance specific areas ◦ 3-form or other decorative panels for design impact
