There are many fac­tors that in­flu­ence the right restau­rant at­mos­phere, light­ing be­ing one of the main el­e­ments. The right in­ten­sity of light can bring out the best in both the in­te­ri­ors of the space as well as the food. Lamps in dif­fer­ent ma­te­ri­als and shapes not only add to the de­sign value of the restau­rant but also cre­ate the right am­bi­ence. It is very im­por­tant for the de­signer to study the flow of the restau­rant and place the lights ac­cord­ingly. Pas­sages and ser­vice ar­eas need to be well lit, while din­ing spa­ces can have a com­bi­na­tion of task and mood light­ing. I al­ways rec­om­mend use of dim­mers for con­trol­ling light de­pend­ing on the flow of nat­u­ral light in the space.

Ex­te­rior light­ing for a restau­rant needs to com­ple­ment the theme which has been fol­lowed in the dé­cor of the space, for ex­am­ple, bronze fin­ish light fix­tures look great with earth tones and have be­come a trend. Ex­te­rior light­ing fix­tures not only add charm, el­e­gance and char­ac­ter to the ex­ter­nal de­sign but also make it more func­tional and wel­com­ing. Ex­te­rior fix­tures such as frosted or col­ored glass are easy to main­tain and also pre­vent glare which of­ten ob­structs the mood of an ex­te­rior set­ting.
