Whether you're just starting your first restaurant or you've been in business for over 20 years, you know that the atmosphere you create is an important part of the dining experience. It is your responsibility to create a comfortable, inviting space that customers will want to return to again and again. What kind of things actually go into creating that atmosphere? You need to look at the restaurant's d_cor, your staff, location and the quality of the food itself.
We're not experts at running a kitchen, but what do know is restaurant d_cor. Al Pisano has been creating custom pieces for cafes, pubs and other eateries for years, and he knows good style. If you're trying to decide on d_cor for your new restaurant, or even if you're just ready to redecorate, we have some tips to help simplify the process.
First, it's often helpful to take a survey of staff and guests. How would they describe your restaurant? If the answers vary from what you were expecting (you thought you were shooting for 'shabby chic' and they called your dining room 'outdated') then you might need to do a complete overhaul!
You might also find that your customer's impression of your restaurant is even better than the ideas you had. If they love the old fashioned look of your dining room, then start looking for restaurant d_cor that compliments that style. Signs and chalkboards are a great piece of d_cor for livening up your space. You can play up your signature dishes with themed chalkboards, such as the Hog Heaven board for displaying daily BBQ specials. If you live in a region with a particular style, or your food is based around a specific region, this is another good theme to use while choosing restaurant d_cor. You can add some Spanish flair to the dining room with Southwest art or even mimic the Italian countryside with elegant Tuscan plaques and door toppers.
You're really only limited by your imagination when it comes to decorating your restaurant. Have fun and get decorating!
