Decorating the walls of Italian restaurants

The traditional method of decorating the walls of Italian restaurants is nothing more than pasting wallpaper or painting emulsion paint. These two methods of decoration are very simple, but the decorated restaurants have no characteristics. Now people prefer to set photo walls for the restaurants. It is not troublesome to create photo walls, but it can improve the appearance of restaurants. Moreover, the decorated restaurants are very artistic and warm. With the photo wall, the restaurant immediately enriched a lot. Similar to this decoration method is to use plates to design patterns on the wall of the restaurant. This method has a more sense of design, but it is more troublesome to operate. There is also a simpler way. It is wall sticker. Wall stickers can be changed at any time to maintain a fresh feeling. You can refer to the renderings on the Happy Decal website. We can see how wall stickers are used in Italian restaurants.

I Italian restaurant decoration features:

  1. Cross plane

This is also inherited from Roman architecture, but expanded the area of the altar. The door is pushed inward layer by layer with a large number of reliefs, which seems to have a strong attraction for those who are about to enter the door.

  1. Fascicular column

The column is no longer a simple circle. Many columns are combined to emphasize the vertical lines, which further sets off the towering and precipitous space. The interior space of the special church is high, open, simple and unified. Decorative details such as canopy and niches also use sharp coupons as the theme, and the architectural style and structural techniques form an organic whole. The whole building looks simple and magnificent, and the interior is very open and bright. There is one kind of 3D wall decal that can simply imitate the style of columns.

  1. Pointed rib vault

The cylindrical vault of Romanesque architecture is generally changed into sharp rib arch, and the thrust acts on the four arch bottom stones, so that the height and span of the vault are no longer limited and can be built large and high. And the sharp rib vault also has the visual hint of “upward”.

  1. Flying buttress, also known as buttress, is an auxiliary facility used to share the pressure of the main wall, which has been widely used in Roman architecture. However, the original solid buttresses covered by the roof are exposed in the special buildings, which are called flying buttresses. As the height of the church was further required, the role and appearance of the buttresses were greatly enhanced. Some of the buttresses are equipped with minarets to improve the balance. There are often complicated decorative carvings on the buttresses, which are light and beautiful, towering and steep.


The decoration style of the Italian restaurant is characterized by simplicity, which strives to be concise, pure and lively. Simplicity is neither simple nor superficial, but a decoration style formed through careful design and, which is very rich in connotation. I think it’s very good, and the style is quite obvious.


  1. Italian restaurant style – solemn style

The solemn Italian style has many mirrors on the wall in the store. When you sit in the bar, you can enjoy the scenery of the Bund from different angles. The characters will change with the presence of different customers every day, so those changed pictures will naturally become a beautiful landscape. The wall of the VIP room uses Masek to spell out a large crystal lamp pattern, which looks very modern.

  1. Italian restaurant style – log style

The design of the log Flavor Restaurant originated from the restaurant in Turin, Italy. The neutral soft colors and wooden tables and chairs give off a light log flavor, creating a warm and harmonious dining atmosphere. You can try the wall sticker printed in log style, which is more convenient and easy to use.

  1. Italian restaurant style – gorgeous style

There is a suite on the third floor, which is very suitable for private banquets or small parties. Even the rooms are divided into different functions, including wine room, cigar room, Western food area, open-air teahouse, and an open-air roof on the top floor. This style is suitable for petty bourgeoisie! Here you can use the large format wall mural sticker. This kind of wallpaper sticker can decorate the whole wall or even the whole space.

The decoration of the restaurant

The decoration of the restaurant is not only for beauty, but also for practicality. For example, the layout of the dining area, service area, kitchen and other areas. Many novices will have misunderstandings when opening a shop. So how should the restaurant be decorated? Here are some points you should keep in mind:

(1) Layout of front hall and back kitchen

Many people will set up many seats in the front hall when decorating the hotel, but the back kitchen space is very small. This kind of decoration is a mistake that many novices will make.

In the directional thinking, we all think that the large space in the front hall, more seats and more customers can get more income, and there is not much demand for the space in the back kitchen. However, in fact, the small space in the kitchen will greatly affect the chef’s meals, and customers will only have a bad impression of the store after waiting for a long time.

Only when the kitchen planning and decoration design is reasonable and the kitchen has a high meal rate, the turnover and profit of the restaurant will be improved. Good planning of back kitchen space and moving line can increase the catering operation income more than more seats.

(2) Treatment of Hidden construction

Many of the catering decoration works are concealed works, such as water and electricity line design. Improper handling of these places will have a great impact on the hotel business in the later stage. Attention must be paid to the handling of details during the decoration.

Water is indispensable for restaurants. If water proofing is not handled properly, it will cause trouble during business. We try to use open channels for drainage. Too much oil in the kitchen can easily cause the ground to be wet and slippery. Using open channels can facilitate the kitchen work.

In addition to water and electricity, ventilation and exhaust in the kitchen are also very important. Poor air circulation will also cause great damage to vegetables and other foods.

(3) Decoration of open kitchen

Safe and secure catering can be favored by customers, so many restaurants have begun to use open kitchen. During the decoration of the open kitchen, attention should be paid to the moving line planning of the restaurant, so as to facilitate customers to choose meals and pay attention to practicality. A good restaurant not only uses taste to retain customers, but also customer experience is extremely important. When customers enjoy delicious food, the overall environment and atmosphere of the hotel should also attract customers.

Five principles for restaurant decoration

(1) Simple decoration

With the continuous development of the times, people now prefer simple and hygienic restaurants. Too luxurious decoration is unsatisfactory. It can achieve good results with some green plants, murals or small pendant in the store. The decoration is clean and tidy, saving time and effort.

(2) Luxury decoration

Generally, our restaurants are aimed at the public. The luxurious decoration will make people feel high consumption, thus eliminating the desire to enter the restaurant. It is very important for hotels to create a warm and comfortable dining environment for customers. Of course, gorgeous decoration is not impossible, but it should be selected according to the positioning of the store itself.

(3) Target population

If we are open to the general public, then the decoration should be carried out in a manner close to the people; If it is mainly aimed at the middle and high-end consumers, the decoration should not be too simple. It must be decorated in a way that meets the needs of the middle and high-end consumers.

(4) Control costs

Many things should be avoided during the decoration, such as cutting corners, delaying the construction period, overstating the budget, etc., which should be strictly supervised by a specially assigned person to avoid increasing the decoration cost.

(5) Necessary cost

Many things cannot be saved in the decoration, such as water and electricity. During the construction, we must find professional personnel to ensure high-quality decoration, so as to reduce late failures.

Charlie’s Little Italian

We are a small Italian restaurant. The menu at this well-loved Main Street pizza and pasta joint is driven by traditional Italian flavours. Aside from the tempting array of larger plates, Charlie’s Little Italian also serves an Antipasti Board, which is stocked with charcuterie, artisanal cheeses, house pickled vegetables, and daily accompaniments.

Charlie’s is a relative newcomer to the ’hood, but it’s run by the same folks who operated the much-missed Habit in the same space, and who also own the Cascade Room right next door (at 2616 Main Street), so you know you’re in for something special before you even walk through the door. In the trendy hipster “SoMa” section, we found a charming casual family-friendly neighborhood spot, Charlie’s Little Italian. The dinner menu is filled with fresh and imaginative takes on pizza and pasta dishes, but go for the weekend brunch, served Saturdays and Sundays between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Our whole gang loved the expertly curated Antipasti Board. Our other favorites included delicious Pesto Gnocchi, Homemade Pizzas, and Strozzapretti Con Funghi. And every kid (and adult) will love their Pizza Bread — it’s addicting! Be sure to save room for their fabulous Flourless Chocolate Cake. Brunch faves include the brioche French toast (with vanilla-bean chantilly, caramel, and candied pecans) and the sublime vegan benny, which consists of crispy tofu “eggs”, avocado, heirloom tomato jam, and a cashew-saffron hollandaise. With décor that’s a canny mix of homey and modern, Charlie’s Little Italian is equally welcoming to Main Street hipsters and young families.
