    About Senso

    Importance of restaurant renovation for business growth

    The restaurant business is one of the most competitive industries to try to have success in. In this game of very fine margins, ensuring your restaurant renovation is realised by a professional company that understands the business and the industry is critical. For many patrons, the ambience of a restaurant is as important as the food, so striking the perfect balance between the two is vital to stand out and have an edge in the competition.
     
    Our professional designers will ensure that your restaurant matches the quality and feel of your food, giving your customers an experience of comfort and enjoyment that will bring them back again and again. This experience is more important than ever and will lead to word-of-mouth referrals which can significantly help your business to grow.
     
    With social media as one of the most efficient promotion tools, your renovation can create this buzz in the community that money can’t buy and not only bring your regular customers back but also attract new customers to check out your restaurant and increase your business.

    Steps to plan a successful restaurant renovation project

    Start with a clear plan

    It all starts with research and analysis. As mentioned above, the restaurant business is a cutthroat competition and knowing your competitors and their actions is a critical factor. Use this information to see how it pairs up with your vision for your restaurant and consider your idea, target audience, brand image and the market. It can give you crucial insight into what the customers are looking for.
     
    The most valuable resource for research is your customers. Many options are available, from simple comment cards or suggestion boxes to your social media accounts. This first-hand feedback can be invaluable. Keep an eye out for negative comments, especially about the atmosphere. If there are any particular complaints, such as the colour scheme or lighting, you have direct input on what to consider during the planning of the renovation.
     
    Our specialists will work with you from the beginning to help you devise an efficient plan to transform your restaurant while ensuring that the core concept is not lost.

    Consider Your Layout

    Logistics are a significant factor that often is overlooked.
    • Is your restaurant accessible to everyone?
    • Are the tables laid out so that it is easy for your customers to manoeuvre around them?
    • Are the restrooms and exits clearly marked and easy to find?
     
    You also have to look at it from the perspective of your staff.
    • Is the layout of the tables efficient in establishing clear paths for your servers to deliver the food?
    • Is there sufficient space to pick up the ready-to-serve food?
    • Do they have a space to take breaks that is not exposed to customers?

    Set Up A Budget

    Whether you are looking for a full-scale renovation or just an update to a specific part of your restaurant, setting a budget is critical. Renovation projects often cost more than initially expected, influencing your profits.
     
    Setting up a detailed budget will require special attention and should not be underestimated. Receiving a detailed cost estimate for the renovation will help you determine how to proceed with the choice of materials or the project’s scope.

    Prioritize The Critical Issues

    Depending on the scope of your renovation process, it is essential to prioritize the must-haves. Any structural issues that may be present should be addressed first before moving on to aesthetic improvements.

    Types of restaurant renovation projects

    Whether you require a complete restaurant renovation or only a part of it, Senso Design is here to help you realize your plans efficiently and professionally.

    Full restaurant remodels

    Whether you want to update the look of your restaurant, reconfigure the layout or provide additional space, it all has the same goal: To increase your business’s earning capacity. In these cases, it often is more economical to go for a full-scale renovation to ensure consistency and prevent additional renovations to tie everything together. This includes the kitchen and bathrooms, which should reflect the style and value of the rest of the restaurant. After all, if your restaurant wants to grow, you must ensure that your kitchen can continue to deliver the same top-quality food.

    The experienced designers and experts of Senso Design will oversee the entire process, from the initial planning stages to the full execution of the renovations. We will ensure that your vision for your restaurant will come to life, from the exterior look over the kitchen and bathrooms to the interior design of the dining room.

    Kitchen renovations

    While your customers will likely never see your kitchen, it is the heart of your restaurant. Suppose the kitchen does not operate correctly and efficiently. In that case, the rest of your business will suffer, so a kitchen renovation will not only make your chef’s life easier by providing them with the equipment and space they require but also help with efficiency.

    Whether you need to reconfigure the kitchen layout to make it more functional, update equipment or increase the capacity, a great, functional kitchen can make a significant difference for your staff and your restaurant. The experienced designers of Senso Design can help you design a practical and efficient kitchen while keeping your budget in mind. A kitchen renovation can be challenging and complex, but our professionals will be by your side all the way through.

    Bathroom renovations

    Everybody has read the horror stories of restaurant bathrooms online. While some might think along the “out of sight, out of mind” mind frame, it is critical not to undermine your efforts to give your guests the best experience possible with an outdated, unhygienic bathroom.

    The dining experience extends to every part of your restaurant, so it’s crucial to pay attention to the bathrooms and instead make them an extension of the look of the rest of the restaurant.

    Interior design updates

    Sometimes your dining room or bar needs an update, either to reflect a new chapter in the story of your restaurant or just because it needs freshening up. Our designers will work closely with you to plan and ensure that the design and look reflect your brand and give you the necessary functionality.

    Your restaurant renovation may require special considerations regarding lighting, wiring, ventilation systems, heating, air conditioning, painting, water, and more. Senso Design has the experience and expertise to combine all these pieces of the puzzle to give your restaurant the theme, style and ambience you want.

    Exterior updates

    The exterior of your restaurant can play a crucial role in attracting customers to your establishment. It is your restaurant’s calling card and an extension of what your patrons will experience. Generally, people only choose restaurants that are attractive to the eye. An unattractive exterior often makes them doubt the quality of the food as well.

    Whether it is signage or decor, the best renovation will not achieve much if people don’t find your restaurant in the first place. And your customers’ experience begins before they even set foot into the business, and they look for something that looks and feels fresh and comfortable.
