Going to a restaurant and simply grabbing a meal with a drink- a reality that does not hold true any more in today’s world! With the customer looking for novelty and uniqueness in every aspect, visiting a restaurant is all about a comprehensive eating experience (which goes way beyond food and beverages, of course). The ambience has a vital role to play in consumer choices. This is where Ansa Interiors can help you plan, conceptualize, and execute a restaurant interior designing project that takes care of both the functional and aesthetic elements for you.
Read on to know how we can bring the vision of your dream restaurant to life as one of the leading interior designers of Delhi NCR.
Focus on functionality
Before getting obsessed with the idea of creating a captivating ambience for your patrons, it is important to understand that functionality should be given foremost importance. Plan the restaurant layout in a manner such that there is ample room for the guests and servers to move freely as and when needed.
The dining furniture should be spread out comfortably; too much clutter can spoil the drill for you while too many empty spaces will also have the same effect.
If budget is not a constraint, go for separate dining and lounge areas to serve the needs of families and large groups respectively.
For guests who simply walk in, make room for a waiting area that is warm and inviting. Lack of thought when it comes to the functional design elements could prove costly as it will be the key differentiator between a busy restaurant and a restaurant with the bare minimum footfall.
Choose an ‘appetizing’ colour scheme
It is no surprise when it comes to the science behind different colour schemes and how they trigger appetites in human beings. When you see certain colours, the mind generates mental associations with food and appetite, which in turn will drive the customer orders for you.
Ansa Interiors can help you choose an appropriate colour scheme accordingly. To quote an example, a restaurant serving delectable North Indian cuisine will do really well with rich, dark, and deep colours such as blue, green, and brown. Imagine accent lights reflecting against these colours and sumptuous biryani on your plate- a winner all the way!

Opt for furniture thoughtfully
When we say that furniture choices should involve careful thought and consideration, the idea is that you choose pieces that are in line with the cuisines and/ or the theme of the restaurant. For instance, if you are planning a fast food or a quick service restaurant, you should go for bright and bold furniture (synonymous with intense appetite and hunger pangs).
Another way you could go is- a restaurant that would serve traditional Indian cuisine from different parts of the country. For such a place, the ideal choice would be elegant and classical furniture pieces made in wood, to set the mood of the place. Likewise, a restaurant with focus on serving pub and bar food should have contemporary furniture pieces that are comfortable and modern at the same time.
Go for textured walls
The hallmark of any good restaurant interior designing effort is the use of textures while doing the walls. The market has myriad options for you to choose from. Even though textured walls are a bit expensive, they add that much needed depth that a restaurant space should have.
If the finances are tight, you can add textured wallpapers to your space. These are a cost-effective way of creating an impact that is at par with a wall that has been actually textured. We are a name among the top Delhi interior designers and there are reasons for that. We will help you choose, procure, and incorporate a wall texture that is in line with the restaurant theme, your pocket, and your personal tastes and style preferences.
Vary the lighting elements
As mentioned at the beginning, apart from functionality, ambience is the key driver when it comes to restaurant business. Remember that people will love you not only for what you serve, but the setting you serve all of that in. Lighting is the major element that decides the vibe of your place.
The best way to proceed here is having multiple light sources to create a layered look. For dining areas, it is best to have subtle lighting that is just enough for your guests to have warm conversations over food (without hitting them with any kind of glare). For areas where the food items are on display over counters or shelves, the pastry section for instance, use bright lights. The idea is to ensure that customers can clearly see what is on offer.
Bright lights will elevate the look of your food items which means a consumer is more likely to order or buy it. Besides all these, you can add that wow factor to your space by incorporating a statement light piece such as a chandelier. The results will be truly magnificent!
Other than the above, there are many smaller yet significant ways through which restaurant interior designing can be elevated. One of these is music which is known to have a relaxing effect on the mind and also boosts mood significantly. A traditional restaurant can have soft flute instrumentals playing in the background. A restaurant which primarily targets youngsters can play much bolder music to help matters. Adding indoor plants is another brilliant way of creating a captivating vibe for your esteemed patrons. Unique wall paintings and decor pieces will also amplify the look and feel of the place.
