With cafés springing up at a rate of one per week in Australia it comes as no surprise that competition is tough. Let’s face it, getting ‘bums on seats’ means cold hard cash in your pocket and one way to do this is to make your café stand out from the rest. You could serve the best coffee in the city but if the vibe or atmosphere isn’t there, then there’s a good chance that people won’t stick around long enough to find out. One way to create a stand-out café is by using statement wall art.
The good news is that you don’t have to run out and buy a Jackson Pollock. Instead you can get some really great pieces for a reasonable price that are sure to create a real wow factor. However before you go out and by an outrageous piece of wall art or a statement piece, here are some pointers you might want to follow.
Buy the statement piece first
How many people do you know decorate first and then buy fixtures and fitting after? Maybe you do the same thing? This is all well and good for your home lounge, but remember this is for your café, bistro or restaurant. Therefore consider purchasing the piece first and then decorate the room to match it. After all it is supposed to be a ‘statement piece’ so it needs to be up front and centre.
The larger the better
When it comes to statement wall pieces, size does matter. Go to small and it might get lost in your overall design or theme. Instead large and grandiose is best. Remember, it isn’t called a ‘statement’ piece for nothing. A large piece stood alone on a wall can make all the difference.
The quirkier the better
There are some amazing statement pieces out there if you take the time to look and more often than not, the quirkier the better. From abstract metal wall art in vibrant colours through to vehicle parts, huge melting clocks and even a super-sized computer keyboards are all available to purchase at prices that won’t break the bank. So be brave and be daring!
So there you have it, 3 important facts to look out for when buying statement wall art for your café!
