For a design enthusiast, an eatery, shop, or even a dentist office featuring inspiring design can make you want to return.
After all, value doesn’t only have to be about the food, the products, the service, etc. — especially when an establishment’s offerings are complemented by beautiful design and decor. It’s the design that creates the mood. It’s the design that creates the image. It’s the design that creates the interest and the desire to return.
Because even if a place’s products aren’t stellar (and it’s very likely they are), the image that the design leaves in the minds of its patrons can be enough. It says... This is interesting! This is special! This owner cares. ;-)
