Selecting a theme should be fun
Selecting a theme for restaurant interiors should be fun, if you know what you want it definitely helps. To give a restaurant an atmosphere that feels authentic, use a bold, warm colour palette. Ideal colors include sunny yellow, teal, turquoise, coral, emerald green, cherry red, and orange.
Wrought iron tables with colorful umbrellas and candles as a centerpiece work brilliantly for outdoor seating. For lighting, consider paper shade bulb lights and bring in modern luminaries to bring in diversity.
Your décor can also incorporate silk and mats. There are vast plant options available such as bamboo plants that can be placed throughout a restaurant- this will bring in some freshness and bit of greenery.
When designing a homey restaurant achieving coziness and warmth is a must. The aim is to strike a balance between appealing to both adults and children.
