The Case for Timeless Restaurant DécorApril 12, 2019
What’s the newest trend in restaurant décor?
Evidently, people are loving “Millennial pink,” and they’re using it for everything.
If you’re trying to keep up with what’s hot, you better get some new restaurant supplies right away! And remember, this isn’t just any pink – it’s a very specific color.
Honestly, we don’t think there’s any point in trend-chasing. There are a lot of reasons that timeless décor is better. Here are just a few.
Timeless Décor is More Inviting
When someone comes into your restaurant location, you want them to feel at home. You want them to relax, order a lot of food, have some wine (if you sell it), and more.
The best way to do that is to match your restaurant supplies and decoration to your location’s theme and food choices. This isn’t a trend you need to change every year. Instead, it’s a timeless, appropriate, and inviting way to design your restaurant.
If you use the current hot trend, your restaurant will look significantly different all the time. It will be outdated quickly. And more importantly, it will make diners uncomfortable unless they’re on the cutting edge.
Timeless Does Not Mean Boring
If you create a comfortable, simple design, does that mean your location is boring? Not even close! In fact, you can do a lot with your theme that will still stand the test of time.
Think about the emotions you want to create in your restaurant. Think about what designs complement the food you create. Consider the impact of colors and how you want to use them.
Each of these steps will help your restaurant location be unique, personal, and even quirky. You can use restaurant supplies and décor that are interesting without chasing every odd trend available.
Keep Your Design Affordable With Classic Themes
Recreating everything in your restaurant in “Millennial pink” would be extremely expensive. Being trendy is challenging in general. You have to change your restaurant supplies regularly to match the current fad, and within just a few months you risk everything being outdated.
Instead, keep things affordable by choosing classic, easy-to-find décor, and supplies that match your restaurant’s theme and overall vibe. This will help you save a significant amount of money – not just because change is expensive, but because those trendy dishes might not be produced next year.
When you choose affordable, classic supplies, you can replace them easily as they get broken or lost through wear and tear. When you need to fill in the gaps, it’s easy to reach out to your restaurant supply store and order more.
Having a classic design is a key way to keep your restaurant costs low.
