Decorating an establishment correctly can be, in many cases, a reason for success or failure in a business. Yes, because in addition to the products or services offered, the style of the place will make customers have a better experience and return or recommend it to their acquaintances.
If you want to achieve a rustic bar decoration that looks more than good, we advise you to read the following article; here we will tell you how to achieve the desired effect and that everyone is comfortable when they go out for drinks with friends.
How to decorate a bar
When equipping and decorating a bar, no matter what style it is, the first thing we must take into account is what image we want to make known as a company to our customers.
To convey a concept or an idea, we can use different tools and beyond the menu, we have to work very hard to make that ‘first impression’ spectacular.
It is said that everything ‘enters through the eyes, and if our bar is decorated in keeping with the style of the users, success is almost guaranteed. It is very difficult to change someone’s perspective or opinion of a place once they have a ‘mental idea’ of it.
Therefore, whatever the design or style that we want to print to our business, it is very important that we give it the attention it deserves and that we do not leave any detail to chance. Especially today, where images and videos are kings!
Ideas for decorating a rustic bar
There is no doubt that one of the most used styles in recent times for bars, restaurants, and cafes is rustic. What do we mean by rustic? To those places where warmth, comfort, and longing combine for an unforgettable experience.
A very special style has been created around what is known as ‘rustic’ thanks to the use of certain objects, furniture, or colors.
A rustic-style bar doesn’t have to be dated, dark, or gloomy… quite the opposite! It is what many look for in winter to get out of the cold and spend some time in a homely and cozy atmosphere. And in summer, natural materials will give it that freshness you need to accompany a beer or any other drink.
A rustic bar decoration must have natural materials – basically wood and stone – with which we can feel ‘at at home’. If a customer is comfortable and having a good time, they are likely to consume more and recommend the establishment to their acquaintances and friends.
Wood can be present on tables, chairs, the bar, and even on the ceiling or walls. Noble materials are stars in the rustic style, but you should not abuse them. Better if you combine them with others, such as iron, brick, or wicker.
When it comes to colors, choose warmer tones: brown, orange and yellow can be an excellent bet. Of course, do not forget some details in white, so that the environment seems larger (the effect that a light wall achieves in small establishments is incredible).
Another issue that you should not ignore is the style of the finishes of the materials. Do not hesitate to place wooden slats without sanding, stones with non-rounded edges, fabrics with coarse fibers … All this will give the feeling of being in a more authentic, more homelike place and not so ‘decorated for photos’, as it usually happens in certain current bars.
Finally, we recommend that you make a combination of two styles that are quite fashionable today: rustic and industrial. You will have a different imprint than the rest of the restaurants or bars in the surroundings, that’s for sure.
In order to enjoy the advantages of both currents, in addition to what was explained before about wood, you can add some metal or wrought iron elements: chairs, lamps, flower pots, etc. It will be perfect and your customers will be more than happy spending their hours at the bar!
