Nowadays, anyone can open a café or restaurant, many people use this opportunity, but few remain in this business. It often happens like this: a person decides to open a restaurant, chooses a suitable place, decides on the choice of a suitable menu, equips the interior, hires employees. But after some time the business becomes unprofitable, the organiser has to change something or even close. To prevent this from happening, you need to pay due attention to each stage of business organisation, and the correct design in this matter is one of the most important elements.
The interior design helps to create comfortable conditions for receiving guests.
At the initial stage, you need to decide on the concept of the institution. It all depends on the guests. It is necessary to take into account the preferences of certain groups, only this can ensure regular attendance.
If the institution is intended for families with children, you need to create a cheerful interior with play areas, because children eat quickly in order to have time to play and have fun.
But in this case, do not forget about the parents who want to relax and communicate in peace. It is possible to organise the work of an animator who will entertain children and monitor their safety.
The most popular establishments are located in the middle price segment. Too high prices attract few visitors, and too low can attract dishonest citizens.
People are attracted to cosy, homely, inexpensive, atmospheric establishments.
It is important to define the target audience. In the case when the building is located next toa business centre, you need to focus on the needs of office workers. Arrange early breakfasts and set meals.
2. Walls decoration
The walls of the restaurants always have the largest area for decoration. So every effort should be put on it to revitalise and update your interior design. The simplest solution for walls and ceilings is to change their colour or make an unusual art painting on them. The modern art of airbrushing, looking from the side of visitors, can fundamentally change the interior of a café. Another way to change the look of walls and ceilings is with textile wallpapers. With its richness, unlimited design and colour solutions, unexpected themes, wallpapers can radically change the entire interior of your restaurant. You can find them for every taste, style and budget.
3. Plants and flowers
Plants in any form will bring the truest animation to interior design. It can be both live and artificial. Flower arrangements on tables, by the window, in niches, all these arrangements will fill every corner of your establishment with charm. Stylish and modern vases, unusually shaped flower pots, figurines, paintings on the walls will be the final touch.
4. Furniture arrangement
It is impossible to express an unambiguous position on this topic. Much depends on the format of the establishment – it can be a small chamber room with a single bar counter and be the most fashionable bar in the city, or halls with an open kitchen that have become more popular in recent years. There can be one large common table for different guests – these formats are usually popular in restaurants used by freelancers as coworking spaces, or they are placed along the window if there is a beautiful view.
Avoid open space filled with tables with four chairs on all sides. A much better solution would be to place a few soft sofas. This is, firstly, convenient, and secondly, it allows you to zone the room and visually arrange it. For couples of girlfriends gatherings, two chairs are still a good option.
5. Reception and wardrobe design
Not every establishment has a reception, but if it suits your format, then it is better to make the counter to order or arrange it ready-made in the style of the establishment with the help of a designer. The reception is the first thing that a guest will see in the restaurant, it should be memorable. After the reception, the guest will enter the wardrobe, which is often a separate room. Although this space is hidden for guests, its decoration should also be done in the main style of the institution. Outside, the entrance to the wardrobe should harmoniously fit into the interior.
6. Bathroom design
But as for the interior design itself, there is such a common technique among all clients – to evaluate the restaurant by the bathroom.
If the bathroom has an interesting design, then the whole place as a whole is perceived well. Where, if not in the bathroom, you can take a cool selfie. Of course, the bathroom should also be made in the basic design of the establishment. The main detail of the bathroom is a mirror, make it large and add a touch of originality: a compliment, a hashtag of the institution, or the opposite text. The design of the bathroom is important, but do not forget that the main thing is a good quality commercial washroom equipment, cleanliness and space.
7. Equipment on display
The larger and more beautiful the coffee machine is, the tastier the coffee. This may not be completely truth, but in attracting guests and increasing the status of the institution, it works one hundred percent. Of course, all the equipment must fit into the interior of the restaurant and the overall concept. The best solution for the restaurant will be an open kitchen. It especially attracts attention when all the equipment in the kitchen is in the same style, for example, silver surfaces, refrigerators and the appropriate colour of the walls.
The Restaurant is not only tasty and interesting cuisine, but also a cosy atmosphere. Visitors should enjoy being in your establishment. Unusual design will always favourably distinguish you from competitors. People come to the establishment not only to enjoy beautifully served food, but also to relax, unwind, and celebrate some event. The interior design is one of the most important elements that creates a unique atmosphere.
