Colours in your café, bar or restaurant area can help make your customers happy, boost their appetite, make your dining area feel more spacious, or increase your table turnover. Paints, chairs, and decorations also play a large part of the colour within the area and can have a negative impact on your customers emotions.

Natural materials including wood, marble, concrete, rock and other similar textiles are a great way to blend the café, bar or restaurant area together.

Having a feature wall can be a great way to bring your polished concrete flooring together with the surroundings.

Interior design is enhanced with exposed bricks, metal frames, wood and polished concrete – along with recycled.

Warm and rustic, raw and industrial, depending on what elements you choose.


Bring the outdoors, in.

The shift towards spaces that bring outdoors inside is set to continue. Greenery always adds a buzz to your space. Think floor to ceiling windows that overlook the majestic outdoors, bi-fold doors, or louvre spread windows to soften and divide the inside to the out. Lush green plants, ferns, or leafy greens help ensure the interiors always stay looking sharp and give some fresh ambience in the room.
