2015 Restaurant Design Trends

Every year, it seems that commercial building and restaurant design trends change. Some of these changing trends are glaringly obvious and others are much more subtle. As a commercial building contractor in Minneapolis, we have seen many trends come and go over the years. So here is a brief rundown of the design trends we are seeing so far this year.

Integrating Technology

Everyone is used to seeing TVs mounted on the walls at a lot of restaurants, so some restaurant owners are taking technology in their restaurants just a few steps further. For example, some restaurant owners are incorporating touch-screen ordering, while others are providing wireless Internet access or areas for people to charge their phones. When you hire us as your commercial building contractor, we can help you figure out what technology to integrate and how to best integrate it into the design of your new restaurant.

Outside or Rooftop Seating and Eating

More and more, restaurant patrons want somewhere comfortable to eat or drink outside. So we’re seeing an upswing in request for an outdoor dining area from restaurant owners. After all, Minnesota winters are harsh and brutal and they seem to last forever. People from around here like to take advantage of the warm summer months as much as possible. Outdoor dining helps everyone enjoy the great outdoors while also enjoying some good food, good drinks and good company. A commercial building contractor like us can help you design the outdoor eating area that will please your customers and make them want to come back for more.

Fun Lighting

Lighting is a great way to add atmosphere and ambiance to a restaurant or, really, any building or home. You can get colorful and funky lighting or more subdued lighting or something in between. This is a great way for restaurants to sort of set the tone for a patron’s dining experience. We are seeing more modern restaurants go with the funky lighting and more traditional restaurants stick with the tried and true. A commercial building contractor like us can help you pick out the best lighting for your new restaurant, and we have plenty of experience helping other clients pick out lighting for their businesses.
