Part and parcel of being a restaurateur is knowing how to make your restaurant look as good as the food you make.
With that in mind, here are some great restaurant design tips and tricks that also incorporate functional restaurant lighting in the design:
- Before you even meet with an interior designer and/or a contractor, you need to assess your personality. Yes, your restaurant is not only an extension of your food, but of your personality as well. For example, ambient lighting is perfect for a small, romantic cafe, but bright fluorescent lighting is perfect for a large, industrial-style diner. Both types of lighting, of course, can be made energy-efficient!
- Position your brand accordingly, especially if you have exclusivity in a market. For example, if you’re the only restaurant in town that offers brick oven pizza, positioning your brand as the onlybrick oven pizza restaurant in town will make you stand out from the rest.. and give you dominance in the market.
- Don’t ignore the small details: even the silverware that you pick out for your restaurant matters.
- The decorations you choose in the restaurant should also be in line with the rest of the theme, as well.
Of course, the design of a restaurant shouldn’t be taken lightly, and is best done by a professional.
