The first thing we will look at is the clientele. For instance guests of more casual establishments would not require as much space and privacy as fine dining clients. Also, a family which will take its children along is a family that would want a restaurant that is also accommodating to their children. An owner of a restaurant will only be able to please a certain kind of clientele by making sure that he designs the restaurant according to the kind of clients he is targeting once he gets to know the kind of clients he is targeting for his restaurant.
When we talk about restaurant design, you should know that the dining area is also a place of concern. Consider the number of clients that are expected at peak hours when planning the dining room. The accommodation of these number of people and the ability to keep them comfortable should be done by a good restaurant design. The design should allow the customers to move about very well and they should also feel very comfortable and not crowded at all.
Make sure that you create a very good atmosphere for your clients by choosing a good lighting, colors and also furnishings that go hand in hand with the restaurant’s theme and the restaurant’s targeted clients. For example, you may choose bright colors and lightings that are best for children if you own a family friendly restaurant. Lighting and furnishings that are more subdued at usually chosen by restaurants that are for adults for the sake of creating a more intimate environment.
The bar in the restaurant is the third thing that we will talk about. The best thing that you can do for your restaurant if your restaurant sells alcohol is to put up a bar area. What normally happens at a bar area is that customers usually order drinks and relax as they wait to sit. A bar area also serves as a place you can sit and eat from if you can not seem to find an empty sit to sit on at the restaurant. The bar area should really be extended as much as possible especially if you have a lot of customers coming in.
Last but not least, let us look at the kitchen in terms of restaurant design. You require a well designed kitchen if you own a restaurant that serves a high quality meal. The kitchen staff and all the necessary equipment needed in the kitchen should be well accommodated in the kitchen you get for your restaurant.
