Restaurant and Bar Interior Design Tips

Monday, May 18, 2015

The interior design of your restaurant and bar is just as important as the items you serve on your menu. When someone walks into your establishment, the way they feel at that moment will determine if they return or if they go to your competitor the next time they’re in the mood for a good meal and a few drinks.

It’s vital that you create the right kind of environment so that your visitors feel welcome and want to come back. At the same time, you must offer something unique to your establishment that makes you stand out from the rest of the businesses in your area. This is why designing a restaurant and bar is so complicated but the tips below can help you get started.

Restaurant and Bar Interior Design Tips to Help Your Get Started

Designing the interior of your restaurant with a section for the bar will require the expertise of a professional designer with years of experience. You want a design that is unique and interesting but you still have to consider functionality and workflow. You don’t want your staff bumping into each other or your customers when trying to perform their duties.

You also have to make sure your design complies with local and federal building codes and safety regulations. All of which our experts here at J. Design Group will take care of when we handle your restaurant and bar interior design project.

Below are a few tips that will help you and your designer find the right interior design for your establishment:

  • Choose a design style that relates to your business
  • Create a layout that allows the staff to work fast and efficiently
  • Determine what type of décor will best complement your design style
  • Make sure you have proper ventilation and acoustics in your design
  • Pay close attention to your lighting so it won’t be too bright or too dim throughout your restaurant
  • Include branding in your design to send a clear message to your customers about who you are and what you have to offer

These are just a few tips to help you get started. Call us for a consultation and we will go over the specifics of your project and put together a design plan. Our services include everything from concept development to hiring contractors and we’ll oversee the entire project.

Comfort Is a Vital Part of Your Interior Design

There is a lot to consider when designing the interior of a restaurant and bar from creating the design to decorating your establishment. With so many different areas to consider, it’s easy to overlook comfort. Making sure your place of business is comfortable requires more than just installing comfy seating and a good HVAC unit.

Have you ever sit in a restaurant or at a bar where you felt like you were being stared at by everyone in the room? It can make you feel very uncomfortable. When sitting around the bar, your guests should feel relaxed and be able to watch the big screen TV without feeling like everyone else is watching everything they do.

You should also include some cozy, dimly lit tables in your design. These create a romantic spot for couples that want to enjoy a little privacy while taking advantage of the music, drinks and food your establishment offers. Don’t underestimate the importance of creating a comfortable and welcoming environment. It plays a major role in the success of your business.
