Awesome Restaurant Design Tips: Here's What You Need To Know

Whether you are opening a restaurant or have been running one for years, it’s important to understand that design is vital. Without a good design in place, you can kiss goodbye to restaurant success.

The design concept your choose for your restaurant should fit in well with the style and theme of the restaurant’s menu. For example, if you are creating a Mexican themed restaurant, the decor should fit with that theme.

Even the most successful restaurants need a well thought out design to keep their customers coming back. No matter who your head chef is or where your restaurant is, remember, a restaurant’s success is often linked to its design.

To help you create a restaurant that is stylish and well designed, here are a few handy tips and ideas:

Give your restaurant curb appeal

Every restaurant needs to have excellent curb appeal, as that, along with the menu, is what gets customers inside. The best way to add curb appeal to your restaurant is by incorporating your branding onto the outside of the building. In terms of branding, ensure that you have the name of your restaurant displayed on the front so that diners find it easy to find.

It is also crucial that the exterior of your restaurant is well lit and has modern design elements to it. A restaurant that looks outdated will be unpopular with customers.

Polish up with paint

Paint only stays looking good for so long, after a few years it can begin to look dull and grubby. If you notice that the paint in your restaurant is looking a little worse for wear, it’s a good idea to repaint as soon as possible.

While many restaurants have white walls, they aren't as effective as colored ones. Especially, for themed restaurants. If you have a themed restaurant, then using suitable colors to decorate the walls with, instead of using white, is ideal.

Add unique features

One of the best ways to add style to the interior of your restaurant is with features and accessories. Adding simple features and personal touches to the space, can give your restaurant the perfect design.

To add more style to the space, think about all the small details. From light fixtures and fittings to cutlery and crockery, every last detail needs to be right. For example, if the crockery and cutlery sets you have don’t match the style of the restaurant, it’s a good idea to invest in more. You can buy beautiful crockery and designer cutlery sets here, or at your favorite home store.

Be wary with lighting

Don’t make the mistake of incorporating bright, overhead lighting into your restaurant. Instead, opt for lighting that is a little less harsh. You may not realize it, but the lighting you implement in your restaurant can affect the atmosphere of the space. No one wants to eat in a space that is too brightly lit and lacks intimacy.

The best lighting to use in your restaurant is lights with yellow or orange tones, as these create a warm and intimate atmosphere. When implemented effectively, lighting can bring your theme to life, creating the perfect vibe.

Creating the perfect restaurant design isn't easy, it takes a lot of time and effort. However, the key to success is thinking about the small details, all the things that many people forget to think about.
