Splash some colour

You don’t have to spend days repainting your whole restaurant or investing in all new wall art. A splash of colour here and there can really do the trick. Try painting just one wall with a vibrant colour that will give your restaurant a new lease of life. Alternatively, try adding a few vibrant cushions or colourful vases. This way, you can easily and inexpensively change these items as and when you want to; to suit the season, your new menu or changing of trends.

Introduce easy-care plants

One of our favourite restaurant design ideas is to introduce easy care plants. Choosing the right plants will give your restaurant a modern, sleek feel which will breathe new life into your establishment. Whether you have plants on shelving units, potted on tables or do something more elaborate such as hanging them from the ceiling, this simple method is sure to re-fresh your restaurant without breaking the bank. The great thing with easy-care plants is that you won’t have to spend a fortune replacing them when you forget to water them. They are self-efficient and can go long periods of time without being watered.

Update parts of your tableware

If your tableware is starting to look a bit sorry for itself, why not consider updating your range? Even if updating your entire tableware collection is out of your price range, introducing a few new pieces can really give a new feel to your establishment. Why not introduce new dipping pots that give a pop of colour or invest in new bowls which compliment but enhance your existing range? Either way, it’s a sure-fire way to add some life to your restaurant.
