12 ingenious interior tips and tricks
1. Hit the hotel auctions
5 Star hotels and resorts often reinvent themselves, so why not make the most of a mass sale. Earlier in the year, the former celebrity hotel the Ritz Carlton in Double Bay auctioned off a huge range of items, from an armchair Princess Diana sat on to a nightstand where Elton John sat his sunglasses. Just about every item was high-class, had been touched by a celebrity, and was a bargain.
A great restaurant is not just about delicious food. Sometimes, it’s the interior or design that takes centre stage. Interior designers and architects are pushing the boundaries more and more these days, and the results are nothing short of spectacular. Here’s a look at the 20 most incredible restaurant interiors around the world:
1. Troll Wall – Romsdal, Norway
Norway’s Romsdal Valley has some of the tallest and most arduous cliffs in Europe, proving a popular place with base jumpers and birdmen. Troll Wall, The Romsdal Valley’s tallest and most vertical rock face, is particularly impressive, so when Reiuf Ramsted Architects were commissioned to design the new visitors centre and restaurant at the base of it they wanted a design to best showcase the spectacular surrounds. The result is a jagged glass-edge restaurant that points upwards towards the sheer cliff face. The full-height glass allows diners to gaze upon the wall through a criss-cross pattern of structural beams, from the simple but elegant dining room.
Many retail stores and hospitality venues spend a lot of time and money on hiring the best staff to help them maximise sales and attendance. However, a key part of the process actually happens before a customer even sets foot in the store or venue, and starts with a transparent yet powerful thing – the window.
Visual merchandising can be used to maximise the impact of the shop or restaurant window, attracting customers and drawing them in. However, contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t end there. Visual merchandising should extend into the retail space to make efficient use of the store layout and shelf displays, or – in the case of both a store and, say, a cafe – to help set an appropriate mood or ambience.
Visual merchandising is often regarded as a mix of art and science, so it can be a complex task. Here are a few tips to consider when planning your visual merchandising campaigns.

Before a café opens for business, there is so much to think about. Every element for its set up and operations needs to be considered and this can be a laborious and complex process.
However, completing all the necessary tasks can be very satisfying and when the ideal commercial restaurant furniture is found and bought, it can be very rewarding.
With careful selection of commercial furniture pieces, the look and feel of a house can be improved and reflect its modern image.
Generally, materials such as steel, wood, plastic, fibreglass and leather are used for furniture featured in a modern house. Of course, the choice of the materials used is significantly determined by factors including the limitations of colour, the sub-theme of the house and the people who live in it.
Choosing café furniture that suits your business is a difficult task. Essentially, café furniture should draw customers to a business rather than drive them from it.
Material type is an important consideration when choosing furniture for a business and to choose the right pieces, climate should be very significant. It is best to avoid aluminium in cold temperatures but to also to be aware that aluminium can reach very high temperatures during summer.
No matter whether a hotel is luxurious and high-class or simple and understated, its furniture needs to be well finished.
The furniture used in a hotel makes a statement about the theme and type of accommodation being offered. From their first sight of a hotel’s furniture, a guest should be impressed by what they see.
