Khushi Todi, Founder & Designer, Cane Boutique
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.
