4 décor ideas for very appetising cafés

There are many ways to decorate a café. Here we give you some general ideas about zones, furniture and accessories that you can use to give your project a personal style. 

  1. Decorating the café walls 

The walls are an important aspect of the décor in a café. It is part of the project to select hard-wearing, easy-to-clean materials and colours that match the brand image and style you want to convey. In addition, incorporating pieces of art and photographs to decorate the walls will help you create a cosier atmosphere.

Applying textures is another way to add personality to the wall of your establishment, and adding decorative panels will help you turn your café into a unique place. 

  1. Decorating the café bar 

Select sturdy and versatile materials to decorate your café bar. Krion's Solid Surface is a great option because it allows you to create amazing effects such as a backlit bar or super creative shapes.

You should also select comfortable and attractive furniture and incorporate decorative elements like cushions, plants or artwork.  

  1. Enhance the ambience with evocative sounds and scent marketing

Finally, remember that in addition to the visual decoration, you should also take care of other aspects. For example, music will enhance your customer's experience, so choosing the right style of music for your café will be crucial.

It is also a good idea to take the opportunity to scent the café with natural plants, flowers or personalised air fresheners. This will create a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere.
