  • Red is proven to raise blood pressure, make breathing faster and increase the appetite. Red is often coupled with other warm colors like yellow and orange, as they are also known to stimulate the appetite


  • In a 2006 article published by the University of Winnipeg, Satyendra Singh outlines a few scenarios in which the right paint color may boost a restaurant's profits. While cooler colors are usually more suitable for the slow pace of formal restaurants, red is commonly used to decorate restaurants where owners will benefit from a quick customer turnover.

Pros and Cons

  • Consider the advantages and disadvantages of decorating with appetite-stimulating colors in your home. For example, a kitchen painted with orange or red may be perfect for a child who has trouble eating enough calories each day, but it may not be advantageous for a family member who is trying to lose weight.
