A new restaurant is an exciting venture. Developing and testing the menu, and training the kitchen staff will naturally fall onto the plate of the head chef, but how will the dining area come to completion? You might think that the quality of the food is enough to sustain business, but the old adage, “we eat with our eyes,” not only applies to the presentation of the food, but to the environment in which we enjoy it. Did you know that there are restaurant interior designers that can ensure that your venue is as impressive as the cuisine?
In 2011, approximately 7,021 people claimed the Interior Designer job title, so there is no shortage of individuals who will claim that they can design your restaurant. At the end of the day, how will you choose a restaurant designer? One option is to choose a designer based upon their suggested restaurant design concepts.
Looking at previous work will be a good indication of how well a designer might fit in with your project’s needs, but it is also important to consider their restaurant interior design ideas in terms of your restaurant in particular. Modern restaurant design concepts often center around one or more of these three ideas.
- Restaurant designs might be inspired by the setting.
- Restaurant designs can be inspired by the cultural context of the food.
- Restaurant designs are often be inspired by the existing architecture.
Restaurant design trends may come and go, but when the interior design is focused on creating a 360 degree holistic experience for the diner, with inspiration taken from the restaurant architecture itself, and its food, and not from a gimmick or a some shallow affect, your restaurant will portray exactly the atmosphere that it needs to.
When you look for interior designers, one of the most important indications of their success with your venue will be in the restaurant design concepts that they propose. If your restaurant is to deliver an all-around experience for its future customers, its design will need to complement the food, and both will need to exceed the expectations of the patrons. Choosing an interior designer with impressive concepts, and a grasp on interior design that goes beyond the latest trends will increase your chances for success.
