7 Decor Ideas to Steal from Beautifully Designed Restaurants
When looking for new inspiration for a kitchen remodel or refresh, don’t just browse other kitchens. Instead, look to your favorite local restaurants for ideas to use in your own home.
We chose a few favorite restaurants from around the country and pulled elements you can steal for your kitchen or dining room.
1. Brass lamps are always a good idea.
2. Use patterned wallpaper.
3. Embrace open shelving.
4. Think beyond subway tile.
5. Embrace vintage and retro decor.
We’re going to guess you don’t want your kitchen or dining room to be quite this retro, but taking inspiration from Streetbird Rotisserie, the newest restaurant from Marcus Samuelsson, is a great idea. Try using retro dining chairs or incorporating a vintage sign.
6. Choose colorful dining chairs.
One of our favorite ways to embrace color in your kitchen or dining room is to opt for colorful dining chairs. You can follow the model of Cho77 — a Denver restaurant specializing in Asian street food — and choose matching chairs, or you can collect a range of colors and styles to liven up your kitchen.
