Commercial Design: Modern Restaurant Design Trends

With food delivery services more popular than ever, more restaurants are utilizing fresh design to add visual interest to their space and attract a new number of Instagram-happy guests. Here at Studio Design Group Architects, our San Luis Obispo architecture firm has spent over 30 years designing buildings with one thing in mind – people. Today our team is sharing the top three commercial design trends people are hungry for when they visit a restaurant:

1. Visual interest for Instagrammability is a must.

Increasingly, diners are looking for bold creative touches to capture and share on camera. From bright graphic murals to patterned floor tiles, colorful neon signage, and bespoke architectural lighting - the bar is quite literally being raised across the restaurant industry when it comes to innovative design.

2. Go wild for multipurpose greenery.

A love for greening has grown far beyond ambiance. Natural elements are more highly-functional than before, with living plant walls serving as more than the perfect spot for a photo, but a place to grow seasonal herbs and more. Ornamental plants are not only good for the air, but are proven to provide a calming effect.

3. Mid-century modern isn’t going anywhere.

The warm mid-century modern vibe is officially here to stay from color palettes to statement furniture, and most of all...wood paneling. This is a distinct move away from the Anthropologie energy of busy wallpaper and elaborate accessories. Today people are attracted to the value of true craftsmanship in their surroundings.
