Designing a Restaurant While Saving

Are you looking to start up or improve upon your restaurant and not sure where to start? Look no further. This list will give helpful restaurant design ideas on how to make your restaurant look nice while also saving some money. A lot can be done by doing just a little.

Saving Some Bucks

Simple can still look stylish, and there are a lot of ways to keep your restaurant looking nice for relatively cheap. It will look original while still looking nice.

  • Design and write up your own menus. Even ask for ideas and sketches from friends and family.
  • Keep the uniform simple. It doesn’t cost much to print out a logo onto a t-shirt, and the casual feel is welcoming.
  • Don’t go all out if you don’t have to. Table clothes, fancy napkins, and painted dishes should only be used if it matches the theme of the restaurant.

What’s It All About?

The first thing customers see when they come into your restaurant is the name. That is how they’ll recognize it and remember it in the future. But where do you start?

  • The name should match the theme and explain the type of food served as well as the ambiance. If they don’t match, customers will be confused and possibly turned away.
  • The theme can be anything as long as everything matches up. You wouldn’t expect taco bell to be sold in a restaurant like Old Man Rafferty’s.
  • The names of the food items can go along with the theme as well if you wish to be creative. I’ve been to plenty of 80s and 90s themed restaurants with meals named after people or events of the time.

The Main Course

Clearly when it comes to running a restaurant, the food is the real reason the customer comes in. You can’t be bland or boring. You need to spice things up for the people.

  • Research the area. Find out what is popular in the area and if your food will compete or stand out from the rest.
  • If your restaurant is similar to others, find a way to add a spin to it and keep things unique. Give the customers something to remember when they leave.
  • Figure out how the food will be served. There are many different styles (coffee shop, bar, bistro, etc.). This should go along with the food served as well as the theme. The atmosphere can’t feel confusing. It needs to flow.

The Cherry On Top

Restaurants take a lot of creativity to design. The process, the layout, even the name all needs to come from the creator. It can’t feel too complicated, and it has to flow. The limit is simply the creator’s imagination. And once started, ideas can just pour out of your head. Starting is the challenging part. However, there is no one place to start. Whatever feels comfortable for you can work, and simply branch off of idea one. Along the way some ideas will stay and some will be scraped. It is simply part of the creative process. Just don’t give up.
