Choosing blue placemats
Decorating your dining table using place mats which have a predominantly blue colour can create a soothing and relaxing atmosphere. Blue has a calming effect on the mind and body, making it an ideal colour to use in kitchen or dining room space, particularly where you want to relax and unwind.
Blue conjures up a sense of relaxation, making your kitchen feel more spacious and open. This is especially true when you use lighter shades of blue, which can make a small kitchen feel quite a bit larger than it is.
Versatility of blue place mats
Blue is a versatile colour that can be paired with a variety of other colours. For example, blue and white is a classic colour combination that works well in many dining settings.
Another advantage is that blue placemats can work well with other colours in the dining room such as yellow or red.
Important to consider colour choice
Choosing place mats, as well as matching drinks coasters, with a blue shade is a going to make the whole kitchen or dining area feel much brighter than it would with darker or red coloured tablemats.
One area to consider when making the colour choice of your placemats is to consider the colours of the cushions used on your dining chairs. Blue table mats would work particularly well if your cushions are in a shade of blue or yellow.
