Usually the first reason someone will walk into a Restaurant, Bar or Cafe is because of how it looks, because of the design.

The Design of a Restaurant, Bar or Cafe is crucial to its success. A business will never reach its full potential without it. Everything needs to work together and the design needs to shout out from the street side its style, branding and identity. The inside should match the outside and have the same identity and style and catch peoples eye. 


Our goal is to help each client maximise the full potential of their business, introducing bespoke designs which are tailored to their individual requirements. Or we can make the most of what clients already have and reuse, recycle and upcycle various items and build from there. We can source and supply everything from signage, to furniture, accessories, lighting, soft furnishings, wallpaper, curtains blinds, uniforms, logo design, menu design and printing. All of your interior and image needs can be met by My Secret House.

Working with existing teams of shop fitters that specialise in restaurants is perfect for us, although we can also put together teams where necessary. We can take away a lot of the time and stress in sourcing that many existing teams usually have to put into a project, allowing them to move through jobs quicker and also achieving a fresh approach.

For restaurants, cafes and bars, the first impression is critical. People will only walk through the door if they like what they see and feel with the atmosphere created. It’s possible to create a bit of theatre and drama in a public space such as these and in today’s modern age of social media, it is necessary to create Instagram able interiors, so that people will post and share for you. The Interior should match the product. Many years of theatre design, travel and Fine Art training add to My Secret Houses free thinking approach to maximise creativity, style and drama. This is what will get your clients through the door and we see it as enormous fun to create.

For Businesses such as restaurants, cafes and bars, we go much further than just offering an Interior Design Service if required. We can offer a much more valuable service where the whole brand image is streamlined to match. The interior, the exterior, the branding, the uniforms, logo, stationary, and menus are coordinated, creating a solid, professional, stylish, brand image. It is extremely powerful when all of this works together.


We can often find with existing restaurants, bars and cafes that the image is all over the place and it is not just the interior that needs fixing. Considering everything as a whole in terms of image is absolutely necessary to achieve the full potential of a business. One basic common mistake is that the identity is not clear as you walk through the door, and this is a real weakness in terms of image and professionalism and it may not live up to the strength of the product or service the business offers. Lighting is also critical to not only draw attention to the Restaurant or bar window but to light the intimate different areas effectively. Using LED lighting can also save you a great deal on your electricity costs.


It is always a gift to be able to start from the beginning and help create a full brand image for a New Restaurant, Bar or Cafe. When creating the business our clients may have a strong idea of the service and product they will provide but not on how to achieve the brand image necessary to reflect this. Everything starts from the Interior and Exterior image and connects to it in a cohesive approach. The sooner we are involved the better to avoid wasting time or money in the wrong direction.
