Are you bored of the current settings of your restaurant/café? You might have been wanting to upgrade your eatery for a while but have not come up with any useful ideas. We have got you covered. Read a few ideas on how to make your restaurant/café look more up to date:
- Put On A Neon Sign:
You might be thinking ‘This is not the show Riverdale. I don’t own a diner!’. Well, guess what? Neon signs are not just limited to only diners and Vegas casinos. It’s 2017 and neon is the new black. Plus, these signs will give just the right amount of funk to your eatery, and will also attract the young generation.
Humor is always a good thing so you should try putting some witty one-liners written in neon. Hanging phrases that say ‘Calories don’t count on the weekends’ and ‘Keep calm and drink coffee’ in your restaurant/café will catch the patrons’ attention. Furthermore, if you have a lot of vacant space on the walls, you can put some small food emoji signs too.
Remember, don’t overdo it. Don’t get carried away and place too many signs in your eatery or else people will leave with nothing but a headache from all that bright light.
- Show Your Love For Music:
If you believe neon signs are tacky and not your thing, then we have an alternate for you. Are you a true music enthusiast and would like to incorporate your love for music in your eatery’s interior? If yes, then we would recommend you a few gems of ideas.
Two words: vinyl records. Vintage will always be in style, and vinyl records do look cool no matter what era it is. So, head over to the nearest vintage music store and buy some vinyl records to hang on your eatery’s walls. You don’t need several of those black discs; you can hang a set of just three vinyl records, arranged in a triangle, on any vacant space. Even the album art of the records make a good decoration.
In addition to that, if you are a guitar fan then you can put some guitar on a wall as well. Broaden your horizons and get something other than an acoustic guitar because hanging an acoustic on your wall was a trend that died in the 90s.
It is recommended to get a guitar from ESP limited guitar edition. Their guitar does not only look cool, but their sleek finishing makes them unique. Not to mention, it would also show that you have good taste in music. Moreover, if you like playing old school music then putting a jukebox in the corner of your restaurant/café is also clever.
- Keep Things Minimal:
If your restaurant has massive furniture, then you can try replacing that. Plush cushions and chairs were a trend of the past. Nowadays, wooden tables and chairs are the new big thing. Plus, if your furniture consumes a little space it will make the cleaning process easier for you.
Never underestimate the power of the internet. Surf Tumblr and Pinterest. Several interior designing blogs available on these websites will give you tons of ideas on what to add or what to discard from your eatery. Consider putting a moderate size blackboard on an empty wall near the eating area, where people can see it easily. Write the day’s menu on that blackboard with a chalk and line the board with a doodled border. You can experiment a lot with your interior. Let your imagination run free but also remember to not go overboard with what you are doing.
