Pub Interior Design Tips

Designing a modern pub interior involves creating a welcoming and stylish space that encourages socialising and relaxation. Here are some tips for designing a modern pub interior:

Layout: Consider creating different zones within the pub, such as a bar area, lounge seating, high-top tables, and maybe a cozy corner for intimate gatherings. The layout should be open and conducive to socializing while also providing some privacy for patrons.

Colour Scheme: Opt for a modern color scheme that reflects the pub's aesthetic. Neutral tones like grey, black, and white can provide a sleek and contemporary look, while pops of color in furnishings, artwork, or decor can add interest and personality to the space.

Lighting: Lighting plays a crucial role in setting the mood in a pub. Incorporate a mix of ambient, task, and accent lighting to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Consider using pendant lights, wall sconces, and table lamps to add visual interest and create different lighting zones.

Furnitire: Choose comfortable and stylish furniture that suits the pub's theme. Opt for a mix of seating options, including bar stools, booth seating, lounge chairs, and communal tables to accommodate different groups of patrons. Consider using durable materials like wood, leather, metal, or upholstered fabrics that can withstand heavy use.

Bar Design: The bar area is the focal point of any pub. Design a sleek and functional bar with ample counter space for serving drinks, storage for glassware and supplies, and seating for patrons who enjoy sitting at the bar. Consider using materials like wood, stone, or metal to create a modern and inviting bar design.

Decor and Artwork: Incorporate artwork, decor items, and wall murals that reflect the pub's theme and add character to the space. Consider displaying vintage posters, framed art, or quirky decor pieces that enhance the pub's ambiance and appeal to patrons.

Outdoor Space: If possible, create an outdoor seating area or patio space for patrons to enjoy al fresco dining and drinking. Consider adding comfortable seating, umbrellas for shade, and greenery to create a relaxing outdoor oasis.

Fire Rated: pubs require different fire rating to domestic environments for many interior products including upholstery and drapes. Check out the fabric specification episode of the Interior Design Podcast for more information on this.

By incorporating these design elements into your modern pub interior, you can create a stylish and inviting space that attracts patrons and enhances their overall dining and drinking experience.
