Most restaurants are working on a tight budget don’t often want to spend too much within their dining room. It is important to put most of the budget into the furnishings and the wall finishes as this is what the guests will be looking at most of the time.
You can divide the walls horizontally with wainscoting or chair rails so that the areas the guests can see and feel are more interesting and durable that the top part of the wall which can be finished in a more attractive but less costly way.
Most time the most common finish is paint for these interior wall finishes. Paintworks well for all reasons including your budget as it is quite budget-friendly and is easy to be installed and change colours when you want to spruce the place up. The best thing about paint is that it comes in many different textures and finishes. You can manipulate paint quite well to achieve a special design effect. Using high gloss paint will add character but isn’t a good option if you have less than perfect feature walls.
Semi-gloss or the satin finish paints are a good choice for the restaurant walls as they are easy to look after and are not as prone to sow the errors or flaws like the high gloss.
Flat paints and eggs shells are there to offer a high proportion of the pigment, but it doesn’t show wear and tear easier, so this is better suited for walls that are higher to reach or even doing half the top of the walls.
Mixing paint colours can different effects can be a different idea, or you can paint with a solid colour using the eggshell finish paint which comes in a finish between semi-gloss and flat.
Wallpaper offers a great selection of textures and patterns for the restraint walls. The most common is vinyl it is easy to install and change over and is easy to get a hold of.
Wallcoverings. Not limited to just old-fashioned
wallpaper, wall coverings offer a tremendous selection of
patterns and textures for your restaurant’s walls. Wallpaper is inexpensive and is a good option for those who are starting out and are budget conscious. If the moisture in the dining room is not controlled, then it wouldn’t be a good idea to use wallpaper as moisture will create mildew.
Another option is woven fibreglass. This is highly durable and washable. It comes in a variety of patterns and textures that can be painted if you choose to go that way. It does cost more than vinyl, but it is low maintenance and there are many different effects that you can do with it.
Natural grasscloth is another wall finish that is very eco-friendly, and it offers a unique texture to walls that can hide imperfections quite well. You will need to use a strong adhesive that gives you the strength as it is a heavy material.
This is more expensive also so you may prefer to use it only on half the wall or one just one wall as a more feature design.
There are so many different ways to create different finishes to walls you just need to find the one you like that suits your budget.
