When designing the interior of a restaurant, you put in a lot of time and effort on creating a design for the kitchen and the dining room area. You need a modern, functional kitchen where your staff has easy access to everything they need to enhance performance and your dining room must be comfortable and stylish. While those two areas are certainly important, there’s another area of your restaurant that also needs your full attention.
Did you know that your restrooms are just as important as the kitchen and dining room areas? Many restaurant owners overlook the bathroom as being important and only stress about keeping them clean but that’s not a good idea.
Keeping your restrooms clean and presentable is a top priority because many customers judge your restaurant on how well your bathrooms look. If they’re messy or dirty, it gives the impression that you don’t care about your customers and many people will automatically assume that you don’t keep your kitchen clean either. As a result, you can begin losing business fast.
While cleanliness is a top priority, today’s consumers expect more from establishments and a good interior design goes a long ways in creating a pleasing environment. If your restrooms are old with stained toilets and sinks that are in need of repair or if your design is outdated and boring, it creates a bad impression for your restaurant.
It looks like you don’t care enough about your establishment or your customers to take care of things properly and that hurts your reputation. This is what your customers will remember about your restaurant when they leave and many of them won’t return. It’s also what they will tell their friends and family anytime someone brings up your restaurant in conversation and that’s not the impression you want to make.
You have an excellent opportunity to make a good impression and encourage customers to keep coming back with your restroom interior design. Customers do pay attention to the bathroom design and many people believe that a good interior design is a sign of a quality restaurant. Our restaurant interior designers here at J. Design Group have the knowledge and experience needed to help you create the perfect restaurant interior design throughout every area of your facility.
Your restroom design should include spacious stalls, enough room to accommodate several guests at a time and the sinks should be different heights so both adults and children can reach them comfortably. Little things like a full-length mirror, hooks on the inside stall doors, plants or flowers and plenty of counter space can make a big impression on your guests.
A good restroom design will also include good lighting, quality wall art and modern colors that create interest. Decorating the restrooms with the same theme as your dining area is a great way to add to the overall atmosphere you’re trying to create.
Your bathrooms have a major impact on your customers, so make sure you’re making the right impression. In addition to keeping your restrooms clean and well maintained, spend some time creating a good interior design that represents your brand.
