Our interior design firm is located in City of Commerce California. We also offer commercial interior design services for locations in Southern California and outside of California.

If you're going to build or renovate a restaurant, retail store, lounge, nightclub or cafe your general contractor will need a set of scaled construction documents, often called working drawings. If there are structural issues these drawing's will need an architect's approval. These documents can be drafted on a CAD system or hand renderings (now considered obsolete) and consist of space plans, elevations, concepts, schedules and details. We use state of the art duel processing computer systems for these processor intensive applications. These drawings are generally prepared by several design consultants and field engineers, integrated into one set for submittal to your local building and health department for review. We use video tapes, digital cameras, site visits, Ipix tours, email, CAD files, extensive conference calls and architectural drawings to communicate with our client and cut back on travel expenses when possible. Assisting general contractors and alternate tradesmen throughout the entire design/build process.

Starting an Interior Renovation

When beginning a renovation you must answer a few questions. The questions below are based on a hospitality renovationwhich includes nightclub, restaurant, hotel and even bakerystorerenovation. The exception to retail would be greater stress on the product you are selling.

Questions to ask yourself when beginning a hospitality renovation.

1. Why are you renovating?

  • Are you renovating to update the look and feel of your environment?
  • Are you renovating to improve the function of your space?
  • Are you renovating to change the use of your space?

2. Have you established a budget?

3. Who is your clientele?

4. Are you serving your clientele to the best of your ability?

5. Is your existing layout helping or hurting your business?

6. How much square footage do you need for each activity?

  • dancing
  • dining
  • bar space
  • circulation
  • coat check
  • lounge area
  • games
  • TV's
  • Internet access
  • selling
  • staff areas, etc.

7. How does your location impact your interior design?

8. From a design standpoint what are you doing to keep your business up to date?

9. What design elements do you need to add to keep your business unique?

  • What is your business identity and how will that effect the design?
  • How do you represent your brand identity through the design of your space? 

10. Consider creating a total experience for your clientele.

  • What other types of entertainment can you add to your space to create
    a unique experience for your customers?

11. Are you equipped or do you have the time to adequately address these issues?

These questions may vary depending upon your business. A restaurant renovation will vary from a hotel or retail renovation but will be very similar to a nightclub or lounge renovation. This list should get you started in the right direction. However we do recommend you consult with a professional. Designers can help you save money by taking advantage of their planning, design and construction experience.
Design is a business just like running a restaurant, nightclub or other hospitality venue. Entering into a renovation project without adequate knowledge can be very costly. 

Interior Design Trends

We at Restaurant Design Studio are not big believers in design trends. We feel it is all relative to your concept, clientele and location. Every space has a unique set of criteria which acts as the foundation of the entire design. However we do agree that finishes and materials fall in and out of favor. The favorability relies upon the durability, cost and the manufacturer’s improvements of a particular product. In our design practice we like to combine different finishes and materials to add creativity and interest to a space.

Materials we find favorable are:

  • Metals:  satin finish aluminum, raw steel, stainless steel, copper and other unique metal finishes
  • Woods:  natural maple, zebra wood, black walnut, brazilian cherry
  • Naturals fibers:  sea grass, sisal, jute
  • Glass:  sandblasted, safety, textured, stained, etched, colored
  • Fabrics:  plush velvet, natural silks, cotton, other natural fibers, sheers
  • Colors:   browns, neutral tones, greens, bold colors
  • Lighting: gels, LED, fiber optic, sconces, backlit lighting effects
  • Misc.:   faux finishes, cork, leather floor tiles, granite and all types of stone

As you can see we like a lot of materials. Again, everything is relative to its use and the concept. Our best advice is to be open to all ideas and don't be a slave to trends. Don't try to forecast what will look trendy in six months. Develop a concept that works for your clientele, image and location.

Side Note:

When designing a residence the clientele is your family and friends and how they use the space. The image is your personality and personal style.
