First, have a clear concept that your target customers will love. This concept will also be the basis of your name, the names of your drinks, possibly even how you market yourself! Your café concept can be trendy, classic, quirky, relaxing, retro, rustic, and so on. Next, use colours, lighting, acoustics, and even scent to bring out your concept. Lastly, factor in human-environment relations like homeyness, crowding, and privacy to get the vibe you like.
There are many ways to make your café attractive, from putting up eye-catching signage to coming up with promos and loyalty cards. When it comes to design, some of the best ways to draw people to your café are to get a painter to create a unique mural for your interior, make your seating more comfortable, and figure out the best layout for your shop. Need help assembling the furniture your designer picked out? You can find a nearby assembler through Airtasker, too.
If your coffee shop is on the cosier side, you may want to consider the following tips:
Make certain areas laptop-free (no sockets)
Have a to-go window
Add wall accents such as art or mirrors to maximise vertical space
Have enough white space
Install lighting that's both decorative and functional
A local coffee shop designer can also help you make the most out of your area, no matter how big or small it is.
First, consider what's on your menu. You'll need a specific square footage depending on if you'll have snacks and full meals as well as coffee. Next, consider the traffic of the staff and customers. The blender and sink should be close together, with no shelving or refrigerator under the espresso machine, baked goods before the register, and so on. Lastly, pick comfy seats if you want people to lounge, but skip them if you want to keep people moving.
Start by taking inspiration from your favourite cafés: do they look cosy and homey? Industrial? Next, take elements that you like and bring them to your room. You could paint one wall, turn it into a chalkboard wall, install floating shelves, and put up themed artwork. You might also want to swap out your chairs for ones that remind you of a coffee shop.
Some questions you should ask your coffee shop's interior designer are:
How would you describe your design style?
What services do you offer?
How will you present your design concept and ideas?
Will you be working alone or with a team?
What if I want revisions to the design?
Have you designed cafés or restaurants before?
What are your success stories in designing for the F&B industry?
What has been your favourite project so far?
When you hire a Tasker to design the interiors of your café, you get a local specialist who’ll take you through the process of planning the layout, selecting furniture, and constructing or installing the various elements in your café. This service isn’t just limited to your customer seating and the counter, but also what’s behind it. With the right designer, you can come up with the best coffee shop design for your space.
While the process may sometimes vary depending on the Tasker you’re working with - you can more or less expect them to cover the following steps:
The project starts with the designer learning about you and your café. They’ll talk to you about your vision for the place, your style preferences, and the space you’re working with. They’ll need the architectural plans of the café as well as any design “pegs” or reference photos. They may also go into detail about your budget.
Afterwards, they’ll do a site visit to your cafe to take measurements, snap photos, and record the place's existing conditions.
Next, the designer plans out the use of each square foot and finalises your creative concept, then creates the first floor plans for your coffee shop. This stage is also when you and the designer pick out the finishes or materials for the furniture.
You can choose from tile, marble, plastic laminate, wood, or paint. If you have any questions about how to clean your cafe's surfaces properly, you can ask the designer during this step.
Things get more exciting during the design development phase. This step is when you’ll see floor plans, ceiling plans, furniture plans and select all the finishes and furniture. Do you already have your cafe equipment (e.g. espresso machine, oven, blender, ice bin, etc.) ready? The Tasker then makes sure that these will be laid out conveniently and comfortably for your staff.
Finally, it’s time to make all those plans and drawings come alive. Your Tasker’s team starts building, installing flooring, assembling furniture, putting in the bar or counter, putting up the wall art and window fixtures, installing lighting, and so on. They’ll periodically check on the work to make sure that everything follows the agreed-upon design plans.

We have a small cafe which has a back room we need fitted out with furniture including design. The floor needs attention, it's painted concrete and the walls need painting, it's approx 7.7m x 3.7m and the only furniture to work around is a spiral staircase. Think communal table in the center and banquet seating down each side. Having said that, we want to hear your creative ideas as to how we can get the most out of the space. No cooking/refrigeration equipment required, that is all taken care of in the existing cafe, this is purely to seat customers.
