A good coffe hit isn’t the only thing that gets cafe patrons buzzing. Great cafe design makes a big impact on the profitability and trendiness of any popular cafe.
First impressions count, so even before your patrons have take one sip of your delicious coffee, they need to decide to step in and purchase it. How do they take the leap? By being enticed by your killer cafe design. This is true whether your cafe is in London, Sydney or Paris.
Two different work flows must operate in harmony in order for your café to be successful and they are the customer flow and the barista workflow. Both of which require different types of variables, but when both work together harmoniously, the cafe can really get buzzing.
In addition, the colour palette and textures of the cafe need to be considered. Different types of brand identities need to be considered, but as a rule, keeping the majority of the palette neutral with splashes of colour makes the most impact. Same goes with textures, combining a few that work together is better than a hodge-podge of whatever is most economical or ‘on trend’ as is the case with some London cafes.
Design Clarity are the cafe design experts. Check out some of their recent London cafe designs and Sydney cafe designs to whet your appetite to get in touch:
- Buttercup Cake Shop: Designed as an oversized Shaker kitchen, the space features embellished elements of the traditional handbuilt kitchen, drawing inspiration from honest, utilitarian, British joinery.
- Cafe Ritrovo: The client’s simple brief was to create an environment to relax, unwind and catch-up. Ritrovo’s owner (and Ex-Coffee Club franchisee) knew the basic operational model to make the business work, and wanted to create a ‘fresh & friendly’ look for his latest venture.
