When it comes to the interior of your restaurant, you may find it difficult to start decorating on your own. Usually, this is because you fear what your customers will think, because after all, their opinion matters.
The décor in your restaurant is just as important as any other aspect as it sets the tone and mood for the evening. Think about it for a moment. If you want to go out on a romantic date night with your partner, you wouldn’t feel the night was “romantic” if you were sitting in a restaurant with uncomfortable seating, outdated pictures, and lighting that was too bright, now would you?
Below, we will go over some tips to help you choose the right décor for your restaurant and you can rest easy knowing that your customers will love it.
1. Set a Theme
One of the first things you need to do before you begin picking out any décor is settle on a theme and concept for your restaurant. Are you a Latin inspired restaurant? An All-American grill? A Mediterranean escape?
Your theme matters more than you think and if you mix too many themes together, you will confuse your customers.
2. Keep It Simple Yet Stunning
It is never wise to use gaudy or large décor as it can detract from your restaurant altogether. You should choose décor that is soft, simple, and does not draw all of your customers’ attention. Of course, a single statement piece is always okay and recommended at the entrance of the restaurant.
3. Match Your Theme
When you finally start to pick out décor, stick to your theme and do not stray. This means that you need to match colors, furniture, and everything else.
For example, if you have a Western theme, you want to stick to Western décor including horse shoes, cowboy hats, pictures of a ranch, and the like.
When it comes to decorating the interior of your restaurant, take it seriously and spend some time deciding what you truly want. When you settle on a theme or concept, make sure that it shines through – this way, your customers have no doubt about what you are trying to accomplish.
