tablecloth and napkin

Whether you own a small cafe or a large, full-service restaurant, you want to impress your customers and keep them coming back for more. And, while your cuisine is most important, your decor can play a large role in customer satisfaction.

In fact, a recent study showed that fabric table linen contributes to a significantly higher enjoyment of meal quality in general. Who knew table linens could make such an impact?

Here at Braun Linen, we’ve been supplying high-quality restaurant linens since 1929! We know a thing or two about choosing the best table linen combinations to help your business stand out from the rest.

Here is how to choose the right napkin and tablecloth combination:

1. Know Your Restaurant’s Theme

It’s important to know what your theme is before choosing your linens. Are you going for a casual look or more of an upscale dining experience? If you’re going for casual, you might want to experiment with various colors and patterns whereas an upscale theme might consist of more simplistic and elegant linens.

2. Pick the Right Fabrics

When it comes to napkins and tablecloths, you want to make sure you are investing in high-quality linen. Think about it this way: your table linens are going to be used every day by customers. You want them to be clean and soft, yet durable and absorbent.

3. Experiment with Color

No matter what your restaurant’s aesthetic is, you don’t want napkins that blend into the tablecloths. Stir up visual interest with contrasting colors. It can be as simple as black napkins on a white tablecloth or as fun as green, blue, or red napkins on a beige tablecloth. The options are endless!

4. Follow the Shape of Your Tables

You want your table linens to accentuate your restaurant furniture, not clash with it. If you have round tables, use round tablecloths that fit securely. Adjust your napkins to flatter the angles of your tables. You don’t want any linens to look messy or out of place.

5. Consult with a Linen Expert

One of the easiest ways to choose the best napkin and tablecloth combination for your business is to work with a linen provider who has extensive knowledge and experience in the industry. Renting from a reputable provider not only ensures you get the best linens possible, but that you also get what’s right for your facility’s specific needs.
