Transforming spaces and designing inspiring restaurant interiors

We believe in designing restaurant interiors that shape a sensory experience for your customers. Obviously we want the interior space to be inspiring and visual but we want to communicate something bigger than this. We build upon your brand story and narrative. We align the design experience with your food concept and as a project team make sure the culture and vibe of the restaurant is understood. This is really important when it comes to shaping the overall experience for the customer.

We can provide restaurant interior design for casual and high-end restaurants, bars, hotels and holiday villages (E.g. Forest Holidays). When designing a restaurant interior we work hard to understand the project requirements in terms of budget and delivery time.

Our specialist restaurant interior design team is focused on creating a brand experience that is memorable, distinctive and timeless in it’s approach.

    What our customers say...

    "Amazing feedback from our customers"

    We were moving our retail space, the process was completely new to us and we didn’t know where to start.

    After a number of meetings with Grey Coffee it was clear they had a real understanding of the challenges we may face and had a clear process and vision as to how they would guide our interior transformation.

    Whilst like many we have suffered with the effects of a global pandemic we can’t wait for our customers to return to our amazing new retail space.

    Here are some of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to restaurant interior design.

    How do you design a restaurant?

    Your restaurant design will affect the quality of brand experience customers receive throughout their stay. So, be clear on your brand positioning and concept and ensure this is carried out across all customer touch points and interior design elements. You need to create a restaurant that keeps the customer at the heart of your decision making and one that stays true to your brand’s purpose. Think about why your brand exists, what you want to offer your audience, and how your interior space can bring all of this together? This will positively impact your restaurant brand and more importantly your chance of success.

    What makes a successful restaurant design?

    Creating a successful restaurant design is challenging and striking a balance between great food, a memorable experience and a beautiful interior is hard. Essentially the restaurant interior is a blank canvas to tell your brand story, when you integrate your brand into your restaurant design you stand a much better chance of connecting with your customers on a deeper level. The experience you create is what will set you apart from your competitors and encourages your customers to come back for more.

    What are the 5 things to consider in decorating a restaurant?

    First Impressions – First impressions are often the part of the experience that stay with the customer long after they leave. Your design should convey exactly what your brand and restaurant exists for, when this is clear and executed well your customer will have much more trust and confidence to come and dine with you.

    Your Brand Story – This may sound trivial and ‘on trend’ but this really is the key to ensuring you have not just a restaurant that people will come back to but a brand that people fall in love with and want to be a part of. The most influential and successful hospitality brands are those that are developed based on the brand’s core values and purpose, they encapsulate the essence of the brand and tell their brand story.

    Interior Concept – An important step when designing a restaurant is to create clarity around the vision for your space, ideally this design concept should be aligned with your overall brand. When thinking about the interior concept, think about the overall mood and atmosphere you want to create for the customers, your research should be guided around staying true to your brand and keeping the customer at the heart of the experience.

    Spatial planning – Restaurant floor planning is essential to the design of a restaurant, spatial planning is all about streamlining the operation and function of the space. How well a restaurant functions is down to the accuracy and efficiency of a well developed general arrangement, the floor planning process needs to be meticulous and take into consideration the entrance, waiting stations, dining zones, bar and countertop, kitchen, back of house and restrooms.

    Furniture, Fixtures & Equipment – FF&E is integral to the look and feel of the interior as well as the functionality of the space and consequently has a big impact on the guests experience. Try to be consistent with your furniture style and colour choices to keep it coherent and recognisable to the brand. You need to be maximising the space you have, depending on the size of the restaurant you may want to consider a mixture of seating options.
