A good interior design can do as much for a cafe, restaurant or bar as good food and drinks can.
Creating an amazing interior design is anything but simple. There are thousands of factors to juggle – What will your restaurant, bar or cafe’s style be like? How can you make the interior as beautiful and decorative as possible without disrupting the staff’s workflow? Will safety regulations even allow your grandiose designs to take form?
When you think about just how much goes into the design of the perfect restaurant interior, you’ll gain a whole new appreciation for these wondrously designed interior spaces.
Restaurant concept development involves restaurant design, but also includes market and competitive research, emerging and fading trends, financial modeling and what-if scenarios, branding and brand evolution, supply chain issues, and potentially even brand portfolio management (for hospitality enterprises with multiple brands in a family that must articulate). Simply put, it involves a variety of people, not just interior designers and architects.
There are hundreds of elements to take into consideration in restaurant design. Today’s successful restaurant concepts are about more than just: “Good Food, Good Service, Good Atmosphere…” That’s a bad motto.
This overview is by no means comprehensive, but it does provide you with a sense for how complex these projects can be and why it’s common to see experienced design consultants intimately involved in bringing to life today’s successful restaurant concepts.
