05 Feb Restaurant Refurbishment
When we first viewed the tired upstairs restaurant at a pub in Bristol, the client wanted to revamp the restaurant. He wanted it to be informal but comfortable linking it to the real ale pub downstairs.
The rear area of the space was dark and badly lit but the front of the room had large wall to wall windows. With this in mind we put together a lighting plan to enhance the dark areas, and with clever use of paints made the area warm and inviting.
The carpets were removed and a oak floor was laid with old rugs. As the client gave us a fixed budget we reused the existing chairs and upholstered some of them and combined them with new bentwood chairs. Some of the highly polished tables were sanded down to give them a worn rustic feel. We then sourced old industrial furniture and used junk shop finds to decorate the walls. The client was truly pleased with the transformation.
